Hello Everyone

I've been hearing good things about the Beechler Custom Bellite mpc for the alto sax. I was wondering if anyone can shed a little more light as to how different they sound from the regular mpc. I currently have a reguar bellite #6 and I'm looking to get a Custom #7.

Also, I would really appreciate it if anyone can tell me as to where I can purcahse a Custom mpc. I tried calling Samash and Robertos but they only have the regular one. How can I tell if it's a custome or a regular mpc? From the pictures, they both look exactly the same. Thanks for your time.

Thanks for the response! =)

So all custom mpc should have someting written on the shank or is that your own customization?

Also, thanks for the website! I'm guessing the C32 when i choose the size means that its custom.

i sent my standard beechler #7 back to beechler to make it a custom model
they ususlly charge between $50-$60 but you can also buy a custom model from them please note they do not engrave the ones they reface with custom or the date but Judy would send you a email of the work carried out
My work didn't cost me anything as the table was slightly uneven so they were un happy that it left the factory like that so did the custom work free of charge now that what i call customer service

Customs and bellites are not entirely the same only with better finish/facing.

"The custom mouthpieces offer a specialised contour applied to the baffles" and provides "specialized dynamic and acoustic features desired by some professionals"

So just stick a plasticine or wax baffle in your regular bellite and see what you think:)

I'm a little curious why anyone would decide they wanted a custom, and then ask "by the way, whats the difference?"

I believe that the engraved code on the customs can be decoded to allow them to check records and make an exact replica of the original should it become necessary.

I'm really liking my Bellite 7. Is it possible to get a custom on trial direct from Beechler?

You like it, so you want to try something different. That's one really bad case of GAS:)
