I picked up this white King T for my 38 Zep Tenor, I think these are from late 40's early 50's. Finding it a little weak and buzzy with it's original .70 facing and horseshoe shaped chamber I wanted to do something with it. I felt that it being a cheap plastic piece (only paid 30$ on eBay) and not worthy of a 75$ refacing bill ,I would round the chamber walls a bit and see what happens (nothing to lose) Used some sandpaper wrapped around a piece of doweling. It had a remarkable result much more free blowing and a warmer richer tone. I took the horn (The Martin is my main) to rehearsal (Community Concert Band) and I really enjoyed it . So much so that I have decided to keep it as a back up horn and not sell it as originally planned. I don't think I would try this on a expensive piece but is it something mouthpiece refacers do ?
