Someone gave me this old sop piece to try. It has no markings that I can see, and a hairline crack in the tip. Despite that, it plays beautifully. So two questions:
Anyone recognise the brand?
Is it necessary to repair the tip and if yes, how do I go about it?
Thanks.

Oh I am sure that looks aren鈥檛 always a good indicator of performance .

Maybe you can find someone to give it a clean up at least externally but it is not necessary.

Hi warp x, good to see you! Could you say whether the piece is large-chambered? I play a 鈥淐onnetable鈥 tenor mouthpiece (I guess a Lelandais stencil) and its chamber is just huge, giving a mighty dark sound.

Hey Dirk how's it going?
Yes the sop piece has a huge chamber and almost no baffle. Still figuring out how to best repair the tip.

OK so that is not unlike the tenor piece which has a cavernously large chamber and a very, very dark sound. Let me try to attach a few photos:
