A old Conn stencil sax I bought came with a strange mouthpiece. I say strange because when I put it side by side with my Selmer C alto mpc, it looks much different. The rails kind of slope down in a lazy curve instead of the more defined angle on the Selmer. Also, to play it you cant...well... play it like the Selmer C, you have to kind of build up air in your throat and then release it, im guessing its an extremely closed mouthpiece? Its mostly brown, and the only marking on it is a C on the back right (although I dont think its a C-Melody mpc, being smaller than my S80C..). Another weird thing (at least to me, being new and all), is how steep the area your teeth rest on is. In the pictures with it next to my current mpc, you can see how extreme the angle is. Im just wondering if its worth keeping around, or an old relic I should flog on ebay for $5.00 :)
