Hi,

I have read about brass mouthpieces having this effect, of making a reed green, if you leave the reed there after playing. My JJDV7 still has the gold plating on it, and as it is stated at the Jody Jazz webpage it has other two plating layers before you get to the brass.

Maybe it was the H Ligature that I used, but the green color was on the table. As far as I know, 24 karat gold won't tarnish. So, what could have caused it? Must say it only happened once, when I did not take the reed off for some days as I was using my main piece.

if it was on the table it is not the ligature.

The plating of most mouthpieces is rather thin these days and wears out very quickly , yours has probably gone.

Take off the reed after playing and rinse before putting it away.
