Hey Y'all...

Here is a group of photos I took of a job I did for Saxophonist and actor Dayton Callie (Deadwood, Sons of Anarchy):

And here is another group of Photos I took of a job I recently did for Saxophonist Jim Rielly of Mt. Airy Pennsylvania. He requested that I take a poorly finished Long-Body 80s vintage JJ Babbitt Link and make it as close (as I could) to the style finish-work of an older Florida:

Very nice job! Does you ever re-plate moutpieces after a refacing like this one?

Early 1960s Vintage Florida Otto Link “Super” Tone Master 4*

woodwind mouthpiece work by Adam Niewood
www.niewood.com

This collection of photos is from a mouthpiece repair/modification job I just completed for a customer in Barcelona Spain. This blank had been worked on, by whom I don't know and it really wasn't all that bad, just too small for the customer. A good starting place, nice blank, no major flaws = an easy job : )

The customer wanted the tip opening opened to a .105 or an Otto Link 7* facing.

Experimenting with some different polishing techniques, I was able to get this mouthpiece so polished to a mirror finish, it was difficult to photograph.

I don't have the ability to plate mouthpieces...

... but taking the mouthpiece in a highly polished state - immediately before tarnishing the brass - to have it plated, is not a bad idea, if you want the finish to stay clean. Not a necessity though...

I've got Ted and I still have no idea what I'm doing! He really makes it look easy ... guess again, right?!
Ahhh! Don't sell yourself short, Sebastian. [knuck knuck! A wise guy huh?] The work of yours I've seen lately, looks mighty nice to my eyes! And that tenor piece that was on your Conn, that I tried last time... that was a great mouthpiece!!!
