I have a used Meyer 7 that came with my bari that I think has potential to sound good, but seems to leak spit from the reed and possibly needs the table fixed. Does anyone have a recommendation for a refacer on the left coast? In the meantime, I use a JJ Classic 7 that i think sounds good and plays well.

I bought a new Meyer 7M alto piece and thought it was pretty decent for a new store-bought mpc, but I think the baffle profile felt "restrictive." Maybe this is better for a student? Anyway my point is that I felt it might be improved upon by reducing the baffle/opening the bore a bit. If it was a tad more free-blowing it would be better. Maybe something to consider if you're going to have the table fixed.

This page at Theo Wanne's web site includes some guys on the left coast.

Although I live in the Seattle-Tacoma area, I've not had the pleasure of working with any of the local refacers. I have had work done by Keith Bradbury, Dave Jary, and Erik Greiffenhagen, and can attest to the workmanship, quality, and good service from each of them. Send me a PM for details.

Thanks for all the recommendations. After checking all over this forum, I just had John Reilly in LA do the job for me - very quick turnaround and good work at a very reasonable price.
