Hey mouthpiece gurus. Wondering if any of you can name this piece, I know Rich is famous for using soloists but this one is clearly not one, although he still gets that killer Joe tone happening.


Maybe a Meyer?

Looks like an old Selmer short-shank Soloist to me. He sure took in a ton of mouthpiece too! There's another vid. of him with Mel's band from this same concert somewhere on YT where he solos on (I think) One Finger Snap. *EDIT*......it's "Wiggle Waggle" and not on Youtube...sorry!

Anyhoo, that's how I sees it!

Look during the solo at the reflections off the shank. There is no scroll. Its not a soloist.

My first call was a Link but looking closer and looking at the piece and the lig I started to think Brilhart.

It seems pretty focused and a bit tight for a HR Link. Im putting my bets on straight sidewalls.

I also vote for straight sidewalls.

He plays two different Selmer's, one that I refaced and did chamber work to in and another Ralph Morgan refaced. They're both seven stars. Phil Barone

Correction, the video is before he started playing the pieces that Ralph and I worked on. He doesn't use the piece in the clip panymore, he uses newer Selmer's. Phil Baone

Right - o thanks Phil. Any idea what the piece in the clip is? Maybe a Morgan?

After looking again (later in the clip), I was wrong in my earlier post. It does NOT have the scroll shank, so most likely not a Selmer. I'd say Link, but the overall length of the mouthpiece looks too short. Maybe go to the source and ask Rich himself?!

If you're up to it, you can always e-mail Rich and ask him.

Note: He's published his e-mail several places on the internet (Myspace) so I don't think it's out of line to post it here.

Rich is killing it here. He kills it everywhere!! Pretty sure that piece is a Soloist, he had the shank replaced. I'll ask him at my next lesson...

It could be the same link with a metal band added around the shank.
