  7. Tenor mpc
    Hello, I'm not sure if this thread has been created and solved before, but here we go. I recently bought a used Jody Jazz HR* 7* mouthpiece on Kijiji. It's in great condition, no scratches or marks anywhere (well now there is, but that was caused by me) The main problem is, it is WAY out of...
