They aren't worth much (unless it's the Vincent Abato model) but they are really well made mouthpieces. Which facing is it?

They can be had quite cheaply when they come up, which isn't often. I have a minty example for alto with a 6 facing, which I picked up on UK Ebay for £10.00. It is a really good player, so I recently bought a 5 with a nick in one rail for $25.00, thinking I might eventually send it to Morgan Fry. I paid more serious money for a tenor 5 which had been opened to an 8 by Hervé MARTIN (reputable French refacer). 8 is about as open as I can play on such a large-chambered low-baffle mouthpiece, but it still responds very well.

I think they're well worth searching out, and I'd be interested to hear other people's experiences with them
