what type of mouthpiece do yall suggest?

I have a vincent bach 25, vincent bach 18, and king 18 (i found the king). my favorite is the 25 bc i have a much bigger range (bc the cup is more shallow). most ppl complain that they have a harder time hittin low notes on smaller mouthpieces and in some cases that is probably true but i think it depends on the quality of practice spent in the lower register cause i can hit a low D (4 and a half lines below the staff) and the highest i can easily hit is high Bb on the top line of the staff. however, the highest ive ever hit (maxed out at, if you will) high F above the Bb (middle F for trombones and other instruments in that octave) so im workin on playin the F concert scale 3 octaves instead of just 2...but it gets tough at about D in the third octave. with the 18 i can still easily hit the Bb scale 2 octaves but i can barely go above that cause i just use that mouthpiece when i march and i use the 25 in Symphonic band. i am a senior in high school and i got my 25 around the beginning of my junior year. and i thank my brotha-from-anotha-motha robbie bc when we played through the 12 major scales durin my sophomore year he would always play some of them 2 octaves and challenged me to do the same, also the fussels book section 8 page 34...well my range isnt directly correlated to the fussels book but the exercises on the page that i just mentioned were great for practicin range. i guess im sayin all this so that in case there is some expert on this site he can sorta analyze my ability and help me out...but i can play the followin major scales in 2 octaves: Bb, Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, B, E, A, D, G, C, F...

also, if anyone is lookin for some great exercises to practice dexterity, scales and runs, i suggest gettin the Clark's studies book...my director passes out copies of just one exercise from the book but they are great!

but back to the mouthpiece...ive heard that hellebergs are really good but im on the tuba exchange website and i see stuff like Laskey, Mike Finn, Miraphone Rose, Schilke, and Schilke Hellebergs so im just a-spinnin round and round. help please?

Kind of off topic, but does anyone know of a Perantucci mouth piece that would be suitable for a sousaphone in a marching band? I'm looking for a well-rounded mouthpiece with some power behind it, that also has a wide rim so my teeth don't get bashed in while I'm walking.

what do you mean by scuff? like not quite high steppin but like stompin? we roll our toes. you probably have never heard of this band but my band beat Austin high school (pretty much a professional high school marching band...they participate in marching competitions year-round including out of state and everything) in a competition last year and we signed up for a marching festival and a week later my band director got word that austin joined that same marching festival (cause they wanted a redo)...but we only do 3 contests a year...cause we are more concert band oriented...my director actually hates marchin band...haha
