    Does your friend have any intonation problems when he plays that mouthpiece?

    I"d tell him to be careful when he tries to suck excessive saliva out of the piece. He may need the Heimlich manuever.

          hes full of crap - maggots cant grow on nothing, they need meat. And you should use cold water only.

          I think we all agree though, the piont is still the same. Even if it's just wiping it off with a cloth, CLEAN IT OUT!!!
