If you say "fairly open", do you mean too open to be a 7?This piece came with a horn I just got. No name, just a sort of a winged "A", looks laser etched. Marked C7. Fairly open with a bit of a wedge baffle. Silver plated. Plays pretty nicely. Just curious what it is as I've never seen this insignia before.
Thanks for any help! View attachment 238970 View attachment 238972
Yep, found it. Exactly the same, even down to the cap and ligature.
Thanks sopsax! It actually plays pretty well...
Very often these original old Conn mouthpieces seem like junk - because they have a 1920s tip opening and facing curve, which do not go well with modern embouchures. I very seriously suggest you send this mouthpiece to Joe Giardullo at SopranoPlanet for his evaluation and, if he believes it worthwhile, get him to open the mouthpiece out to a size you'd be comfortable with. He did a similar job for me a couple of years ago and the difference was like night and day. The old Conn soprano mouthpiece he worked on has been my favourite ever since.It came with a Conn C soprano NWII I just got. The original mouthpiece was in there too, but it's junk. I think someone 'worked on it...' Yikes. But whatever this one is, it works well with the horn.
