Hi! Does anyone have information about King metal mouthpieces (especially for baritone)? I tried to use 'search' but I did not find anything. Thanks. GG
I just got my paws on one today, so I believe so The logo seems identical to the one I have seen on the King HR mouthpieces and I found pictures of others thanks to Google.Is there such a thing? I have a King hard rubber bari mouthpiece (probably one of those generic blanks that were stamped with a variety of names), but have never heard of a "King" brand metal MP, especially for baritone.
Lots of them around a few years ago an we have been speaking about them in the past too. Metal are Wolfe Tayne and hard rubber are Wagner . The ligature of the King-Tayne seemst o be the same as the one made by wagner for the Hard rubber.Is there such a thing?

Babbit, they are similar to the Wolfe Tayne mouthpieces
see bothThey are the same as Wolfe Tayne mouthpieces, see the last pictures on this page:
I had such a King 8 a long time ago, a brighter mouthpiece with a very small beak. Didn't play it for long and gave it away years ago.
Thank you, it was really interesting. I do wonder how you got the white marker off the mpiece, thoughMetal Meyer and Guy Hawkins are similar stencils in construction. Some baffle and facing differences.
Thank you, milandro! I found that website, too. But these new ones seem to be somewhat different.Well I searched for you (you find above relevant information), as I said they were mande by Babbit.
I had one or two and wasn't very impressed . Not so long ago there were a few for sale, I think that I remember, at a Dutch shop which had bought the entire inventory of another shop which shut down. They went away cheap.
They are still for sale
