    Does anyone have experience with his restorations? Curious how they came out. I have a couple of old 'classic' clarinet mouthpieces that have great tone, but facings that someone has screwed up gently at some point. ON THIS PAGE on the left near the bottom

    Just about to acquire a nice selmer airflow alto piece, though the tip opening is tiny. Like really tiny. (0.55 on alto!) Just wondering if anyone has had these refaced and opened with success? If so then how do you find the large chamber interact with a wider opening? I believe it's one of...

    Hi guys, I have a metal Otto Link STM 7* and I found the tip is too open for me. I played on 6 and 6* before and I think I like to go with 6*. Do you suggest sending 7* one to a refacer to close it to 6* or if it is a decent Link, I sell it and buy a 6* and then send that one to a refacer? I'm...
  15. Mouthpiece Maintenance, Modification & Refacing
    Hi all, I've been working on refacing ebonite mouthpieces recently and I can't find a way to tighten or close up chambers. The mouthpieces I've been using are pretty loose on the neck of the sax (and I know my cork isn't too small) so any way to make chambers smaller or any advice in general...

  17. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    I got this sweet berg for my tenor in the mail the other day, and I'm curious to its age. It would be a huge help if someone could help me date it (find its age, not to get a table at a nice restaurant with Mr.Bergs granddaughter, as I'm sure some of you were thinking) so that if I choose to...

    Greetings! Right now I'm playing on an Otto Link STM 7 for tenor, and I love the sound but I'd like to move up in opening. I'm looking to get an 8*, but I was wondering the best way to go about it. The table on my 7 isn't too good and I don't get a very good seal, and I don't want that to be...
