Just out of interest, does anyone knows if the current model 22 differs from the one, let's say, the one Parker used back in those time?

I do notice they now branded it as a student mpc and pro mpc back in those days but are there any physically difference?

At the end it is a mouthpiece that's been producing by Runyon for a long time....

Thank you.

Don't know the answer, but I bought one a few months ago for fun...and it is a great piece. The rails are very wide, but I bet with a reface it would wail. The Model 22 looks (internally) and plays like a Brilhart Ebolin to me.

The rails are made wide with purpose to help a beginner. The wide rails reduce the risk of problems due to misplacement of the reed. (Info from Paul Coats coming from Santy Runyon)
I have one also. Great mpc and gives you a touch of the Charlie Parker sound. (But not the technique, alas)
