his site has been around for many years and originally was only in Dutch, I’ve quoted it many times
especially when it came to his Weltklang baritone tuning modifications.
In fact Mr. Postma is a member of SOTW himself I think and has contributed 2 posts until now this is one
and this is his profile

Yes Rhys it was, of course, YOUR thread at the Cafe which popped up again this week after a long slumber.I bought tenor and baritone mouthpieces from Marten back in 2012. He was great to deal with, let me have the mouthpieces on trial and adjusted the baritone piece after I gave him some feedback on how it was to play.
A few points that Marten told me in emails.....
....Following that feedback, Marten adjusted the facing on the baritone piece and it became much more even top-to-bottom.
I really like the mouthpieces, which offer something different in terms of sound.
Bear with me please, this is not a rebuff.Thanks...of course, when I tried the top-notch SOTW search engine for 'Postma', none of those threads appeared:dazed:
I actually never saw that one on that page before, I just use the one in the upper right on the forum, here....which returns 13 pretty useless threads.Bear with me please, this is not a rebuff.
I tried the same thing, and the search engine works fine, just not the one located on the top side of any page but the one here
center page top
here the word Postma returns 179 hits.( can’t give you the link because it disappears after creation but I send you a screen shot)

I don't play them regularly but I just got the baritone piece out of a drawer and had a blow on it, firstly with the "Vaulting" (removable baffle) in place and then without.Yes Rhys it was, of course, YOUR thread at the Cafe which popped up again this week after a long slumber.
I am always for innovators, and these seem very interesting.
Do you use them regularly ?
Can you describe, or perhaps even post a soundclip, of how they sound different from a conventional mouthpiece ?
Also (besides learning to put on the lig) was there any other aspect of these which required a 'learning curve' for the player ?
