Can anyone please tell me how many variations of the steelay mouthpiece were produced? I am looking for for a mouthpiece contemporary with my 1935 10M preferably with a tip opening equivalent to a link 7*.

I don't know the answer but you may have trouble finding one nearly that open. Those vintage mouthpieces tend to have very narrow tips. You could get one and have it opened up, or get one just to say you have one and play something else.

Chitownjazz,
thanks for the reply. I already have a steelay No3 (just to say I've got one) but I was just curious. I find the No3 difficult to play because I am used to playing a wider tip opening. I take your point about the vintage mouthpieces having narrower tip openings. I don't think I will have the No3 refaced - I would prefer to keep it original.
regards,
Second Tenor
