I got this mpc in the other day that is totally throwing me for a loop. It's the one in the center in the photo...Brilhart Personaline, made of hard rubber. As you can see, it is significantly shorter than the Tonalin tenor Personaline on the left, and longer than the Ebolin alto personaline on the right. Although it is closer in length to the alto piece, the inner shank diameter is essentially the same as the tenor. Likewise, the table width is also about the same as the tenor. It's just SO much shorter than the tenor though...94.4mm vs. 103.5mm. Furthermore, the difference in length is all in the 'body' of the piece...the shank and beak are the same lengths as on the tenor Tonalin Personaline. The length of the mid-section of the HR piece is actually shorter than that of the alto Personaline. Could this be a C melody piece? I've not ever heard of a Brilhart C melody piece, and I don't see one listed in the advertising copy on Theo's website either. Any thoughts?
