I recently came into owning a white Tonalin-style alto mouthpiece. It looks a great deal like a Brilhart Great Neck, except no black bite plate. It has "Slick" on it had a medium sized chamber with flat sidewalls. The tip opening is stamped on the body above the shank like a Florida Link. I have no idea what is up with this piece. I've asked Mark Sepinuk and a couple of other folks if they'd ever heard of it. Crickets. Anyway, any information would be very helpful.

Hey Tom,
I'm one of David Valdez's students (i've bought a neck from you before too). I have one of these mouthpieces. I opened the facing curve on mine up. Played horribly when I bought it. Still does.

Be nice, Aaron. If you had the 'piece fixed and it still plays horribly, maybe the blame is not with the mouthpiece. :shock:

Pictures, Tom? We know you can do it. ;)

Be nice Dr. G, nobody likes a fecetious saxophonist :shock: I opened the piece up myself just to try some refacing. The piece was really bad. The quality of the rubber looked cheap. I have the tenor model.
