I did try one a couple of months back, very nice indeed.

I couldn't find this mouthpiece on the website, just an ad for them.
Aaron makes the mouthpieces but Rs Berkeley is the main distributor for them contact them for the legend series pieces.

There has been much guessing whether it was Bird's Brilhart Tonalin that has been copied or his Runyon "22". If I remember right, his Brilhart Tonalin was a Streamline. That model requires a smaller ligature, like a clarinet size. Any comments on the diameter of the bird drake ? FYI, a Streamline has a diameter of 24 mm (.946") at the point where the window ends (the bottom) and is 26,7 mm (1.05") at the thickest point. A (modern) "22" is 25,7 mm (1.01") at the bottom of the window, and 27,7 mm (1.09") at the thickest point.

Remember that i had problem with lig. Now tried the lig on my (normal) tonalin: no problem. Played like brilhart although i never played runyon.
The 4 (tip 62) was not that small i thought it would be, the 5 was realy different in color of tone then 4 and 6 (strange) . 6 was the one i liked the most.
Color is white
