Are Denis Wick mouthpieces good?

Denis Wick make some great mouthpieces, no question. I used their 3E for several years. It has about the same depth as the average Bach 3C but has an IRD closer to a Bach 2 size. I found it to have incredible punch/projection but still give a darkish solid tone that doesn’t break up.
