Yes on both counts. If it's a stainless steel piece, it's extremely time consuming (thus expensive) to go much more than .005" on a tip opening adjustment (either more open or more closed).Demolisher_2000 said:Hey, Im wondering if metal mouthpieces can be refaced or repaired? Also, Ive heard of lots of mouthpieces being opened up but can you ever make the tip opening of a mouthpiece smaller?
You are correct, sir. Very workable! And very sweet on alto, those pieces are. I don't do replating, so the brass is exposed when I am finished with a plated piece, but there are sources that can replate pieces that have been worked. I've never had it done - I just know they are out there.Demolisher_2000 said:Thanks guys,
What about a selmer metal piece? I assume its brass with silver plate.
