Re: Ben Davis Vocaltone mouthpiece
Thanks for replying
1) I think you're right. I've got no other mouthpieces with such a small opening, so not really anything to compare it to.
2) The ligature I've tried is possibly not holding the reed tight enough. The mouthpiece looks as though it has tracks on the side to attach a clamp-type ligature.
3)This is the most likely explanation. It looks like the mouthpiece has had a hard life as a small amout of the chrome has worn away, and there are loads of marks on the bite plate. Other than that, it looks fairly untouched (to me, at least).
It looks nice on the bookcase anyway, so maybe that's the best place for it.
