Does Selmer still produce the Metal Classic line? They list them on the Selmer Paris website for soprano (E facing only), alto (C*) and tenor (C**), but none of the online shops I frequent seem to carry them. They're fairly easy to find on the used market, often with somewhat more diverse facing options. I love my (used) soprano piece, so I'm just curious if they still make 'em.

If the mouthpieces are still listed at Selmer, they will still produce them.
In German-speaking countries, they are still available in various online shops.

It is my understanding that they are streamlining their mouthpiece line because of the recent buyout. I was told by Selmer that the E is the only facing that they currently produce, and that they may stop making them altogether at some point. That would be a shame, IMO.

That's a shame. I realize that the mouthpiece market is a bit saturated, but a Classic never goes out of style. And there really aren't many (any?) other metal pieces aimed at classical playing. Granted, I use it for jazz, but I've used it in classical settings to good effect. I'm curious to try the Metal Classic on the other horns.
