you were just trying to be helpful, and i appreciate it. but, the reason i want to reface my boring ordinary sop mouthpiece
is because i own it already. so, i'd be able to send it off with a reed, and the refacer would be able to match the tip to the reed. on the other hand, i could buy several mouthpieces of varying sizes, and try to find the one that matches my reeds, or buy a new mouthpiece and try to find reeds to match it. either way, i'd spend just as much if not more money, but i'd have to deal with the stress of waiting by the mailbox thinking "is this the one, or have i wasted my money again?", which is more stressful then dealing with cane reeds, legeres, or fibracells, which is why i'm switching to plastic.
i've also heard that super sessions were great on sop.. just like the 20+ other mouthpieces that i've heard were great, and bought, only to get a defective one and have to return it. then i went back to what i had already and practiced.
besides, it's my money.
