Anywhere from Yamaha size 11 (smaller) to 14 (larger) is reasonable.

I’d say you’re probably just fine with the one you have! There’s no harm in trying a different one though, if you’re curious. Yamaha makes good mouthpieces and you can get new ones for like 38 bucks, and a used one maybe under 20. If I had to recommend a good and cheap one that you probably couldn’t go wrong with I’d say Yamaha 14c4 or 13c4(a size smaller). Mouthpieces that come with horns are often around a Yamaha 11c4. A slightly bigger one would make you tired faster for the first few days, but it wouldn’t take you long to get used to and it’ll give you more room for a bigger and/or darker sound.

I ended up getting a Bach 3C.......people had recommended Bach 6, 3B, and 3C.... since 3C seemed like it was the biggest change from my original mouthpiece I went with 3C

After a brief comparison....I like both

The 3C is a bit brighter and it seems to make me play a little sharp—- I expected the opposite since it has a slightly longer shank than my original mouthpiece

Not sure yet which one I’ll use as my regular mouthpiece but at least now I understand a bit more about my mouthpieces & horn
