Yesterday I hired a couple of young men to help pack up my house(been in it for 25 years--lots of junk). Had them clean out the attic. Opened one of the old bozes and found a plastic University of Houston bag. Since the last time I bought something there was 1976 I was curious
Opened the bag to find the following

]Scroll shank C* Selemer bari mpc that came with my MK VI low A bari I bought in high school ("67 or so)/ Last ime used this mpc was 1972 when I played in THE legit sax quatere at North Texas.

Like new New York Meyer 7/m/m bari mpc

Like new New York Meyer 6/m/ s-small chamber bari mpc

Brilhart 6* Sn XXXX Level Aire bari mpc --lots of big band gigs with that one

Brilhart 5* sn XXXXX Tonalin alto mpc-- high school mpc

Brilhart 3* sn XXX Ebolin clarinet

Misc clarinet mpcs

Conn short shank large chamber soprano mpc that came with my Conn soprano

Homemage reeds holders(plexiglass with bike tire rubber band holders) didn't make nice reed holders like they do today

and -- one unopened Rico BROWN box alto reeds 5's ( must of picked up the wrong strength)

Felt like a diver finding piatre ship treasure.

Will soon play test em and put some up for sale.

Never know what lerks in old attics:D

That's a metal MPC, right.

Man, I'm drooling.

I was looking at that mpc last pm and compared it to a Berg (115/0/m)and a RPC. The baffle-- chamber combo (high long flat baffle "steps" into a big chamber) of the Level Aire is just like the RPC. Hmmm. That Brilhart is a balsy mpc as I remember. Can't wait to get my bari out of the shop to try it

I played a metal Brillhart Levelaire 6 on Bari back in high school. Fond memories.

Those NY Meyers you have might be worth a fortune.
People are paying excessive amounts for the alto ones.
I'm going to ask about that in another thread.
