  1. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Hi everyone, so I recently found this old brilhart ebolin streamline mouthpiece serial #5135 in an old mouthpiece drawer and I'm trying to figure out if the ligature is an actual brilhart ligature too. It seems to match the mouthpiece (because streamlines are thinner mouthpieces) but i can't...

    I recently acquired a Brilhart Ebolin tenor mouthpiece and I'm hoping to get some help figuring out its age. The mouthpiece was in the case of a 1968 Mark VI that I found at a garage sale. The seller told me it had been sitting in a closet untouched for at least 15 years. I've done some...

There were several Brilhart mouthpieces inside the case, which I...

    Hey guys, I'm currently an intermediate player headed off to college, and I have been using my grandfather's old setup for about 6 or 7 years now. It's a Buescher Aristocrat with a Brilhart Ebolin Special mpc. I don't know too much about these mpcs, but from what I understand the Specials were...
  7. Alto mpc
    The mouthpiece that came along with my '58 Conn Director Alto is definitely a Brilhart Ebolin but I cannot seem to find a serial number on it. The words Brilhart and Ebolin was only distinguishable by carefully turning it and only in the right lighting conditions, so I'm wondering if perhaps the...

    Hey guys, I was wondering your opinions and experiences with the modern plastic Brilhart Ebolins. How would you describe the way they alter your sound? They seem like reasonably neutral mouthpieces, but do they lean toward making you sound a bit brighter or darker? Thanks guys. I've been...
