I've had my eyes peeled for weeks hoping to spot one of these neat caps that would fit a standard Ebolin or Tonalin. All that seems to show up are ones that fit Streamline (marked T S on the inner tip of the cap).

I was beginning to think that brilhart never made plastic cap for the fat body pieces until I found this. It is marked (T E) on the tip. I presume this means "tenor Ebolin" ? I know it is pretty geeky of my to care but I think it looks smashing with an iverted ligature and it is very functional. Another think I like about these caps is that they are very flexible compared to many other plastics. Almost like Tupperware so they are unlikely to break if dropped or squashed.

Brilharts are a crap shoot, but I have to say if you find one with a facing that agrees with you, the can sound and feel spectacular!

I've got two for alto, one marked "AL" and one marked "AS". Unfortunately they don't fit my over Rovners, and I'm not willing to spend the $$$ on an original lig or one of the copies so I've never used them. Maybe someday.

I have one that doesn't have any markings on the tip, but came in a "Carlsbad" tenor box. I don't think I ever had the tenor mouthpiece, just the cap and box. Actually, I also have a second Carlsbad box, also empty. How do I end up with this stuff? One box is for serial no. 96570, a 4 star facing. Check your mouthpiece! You may have the lucky number and win an empty box!

I get just as good a tone out of my generic new plastic cap.
