Thank you for the info Mojo! I'm glad Theo has his website up again! I was really missing having all the vintage mouthpiece info at hand. Also, his mouthpieces look top-notch! I might have to buy one of his ligatures as well, WOW!
I received the Berg a couple days ago, and I must say.... THIS IS THE BEST BERG I'VE EVER PLAYED! Wow! My opinions of Bergs have now changed after playing this piece! It plays with a mild edge; enough to cut through whatever I want. But, it has enough smoothness and low end to not sound like nasely. It is faced incredibly, and I assume it is original, or it was refaced by a true pro. After playing the piece for almost a week, it might just beat out my Brilhart Great Neck as my new main piece. It really is a great mouthpiece! Keep an eye out for these "P" model duckbill 1940's Bergs. They really are something special!
