I picked up my mpc, which is a vandoren t25, and it cracked off in front of my eyes. I’m wondering if the damage is reparable, and if so, does it cost more than the mpc? I’ll post some pics, all help is appreciated. The mpc costed $95 secondhand.

Yes, it is broken and fixable, but because your mouthpiece is nothing special, it will cost you more to repair (and ship) than buying a new one.

Not only even if repaired perfectly there are chances that it will be slightly different anyway , so, in my opinion not worth it.

You also have teeth marks (or looks like that). Get a secondhand one

It was secondhand, which was the reason it has teeth marks. I usually have a patch on. Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.

if you acquired it secondhand I wouldn’t even consider having it repaired

It could be refaced and repaired but Milandro is spot on.

give it to someone to practice refacing and if that is what you like to play on get another.

Funny thing is, I played it and it sounds the same. Would it effect my tone? I recorded myself and compared it, I couldn’t tell the difference. Might keep it, but I suspect it will deteriorate further.

Or maybe this will justify a mpc search.....
