Finally had a chance to try a Meyer Bros.

I must say, I've been having some major G.A.S. to play a Meyer Bros since I learned that Cannonball played one. Today, I had a chance to play a 3M that had been modified to a 5M. It's had to be in the type of rubber they used. I have a NY Meyer 8M that plays very well, but there was a really big difference in the way the Bros rings. Why can't they make rubber with the same sulfur content that they made back then. Now I have to find one to purchase. :(

The debate goes on... the jury is still "out" on whether mouthpiece material makes a difference due in large part to tiny differences in any 2 mouthpieces.
However some food for thought - IF material matters at all, could it be possible that it just takes some years for the rubber to leach off enough of the sulphur to cure to this magical state?
And then there are the good ole EPA laws that might interfere with the same recipe for todays HR mouthpiece manufacturing....?

On the measurement issues - only by measuring with the correct tools can you see exactly what you are dealing with. Eyeballing it will only get you so far...
