Ok, just throwing this out there. I've been playing for over 15 years now and I'm just now beginning to understand the subtleties of mouthpieces. I've been very, very curious for the last 5 years as to the process and types of mouthpiece reface/repair/modificiations that are out there but have not had anyone readily accessible to teach me how to do it. Is anyone out there willing to take on a protege'? Does anyone have resources that I could read, watch, or study that could fill me in on the "basics?" I'm not looking to open www.justinsmouthpieces.com or compete with anyone...just be able to do whatever I want with a mouthpiece.

I'm willing to invest the money into buying the tools that I would need and obviously study any prescribed materials. What I really need is a place to start. If anyone has any insight...I'd be forever grateful.

I'm also really interested in working on horns and learning to do my own repads. I know several people have videos on saxophone repair. Has anyone watched these videos? Is there a really good one? My tenor needs a repad dearly and the last repad I had was many hundreds of dollars...

My advice ... read all of what Phil Barone writes about mouthpieces... also subscribe to Mojo's mpc group... search with google.

I learned to do repads by working with an experienced tech for free .. very rewarding to me

good luck
