RICO ROYAL GRAFONITE
The B CHAMBER
The "B" tone chamber will give a little more brilliance (better for using with most bands).FACINGS
Facing (3, 5, or 7): The facing is determined by the distance from the tip of the reed to where it first touches the mouthpiece. The bigger the facing number, the farther back the reed goes before actually touching the mouthpiece. Changing the facing of the mouthpiece will generally change the volume of the instrument. With a shorter facing (3), less of the reed is vibrating, so the instrument will tend to be quieter, with a longer facing (7), more of the reed is vibrating, so the instrument will tend to be louder.

Comments about Rico Graftonite Baritone Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I got this mouthpiece to get accustomed to playing bari before trying out higher-end pieces. It plays beautifully on a friend's Yamaha 52 bari, but on my 1928 Buescher True Tone, it is inordinately sharp and CANNOT be brought down in-tune. I haven't had a whole lot of experience with bari equipment, so I don't know if it's the exception or the norm for these to play this way on vintage horns, but my friend's Selmer S80 had the same problem. Either way, if your bari is older than, say, 1970, avoid this mouthpiece. I'd be curious to try a Metalite, too, but I have a feeling I'll have similar problems.
This does use an odd ligature size for a low-end piece - it works with ligatures that fit standard hard rubber tenor mouthpieces like Selmers and Vandorens (Rovner size 2R) - and since it doesn't include a ligature, rememeber that for when you get one.
I would still recommend this to high school-level bari players, since I've never seen a school bari I wouldn't call modern. If you're playing any Yamaha bari, a Rico B3 or B5 would be a great change from a stuffy little Selmer C*, and can tackle marching, concert, and jazz band equally well. Just soften your reed strength by a half or whole when you switch.
P.S. For those of you who know your instrument history, my bari is low-pitch, so it isn't the horn.

    Most bari mouthpieces are really expensive, but this one isn't. A quality piece with a good tone at an affordable price.
