Steel Ebonite mouthpiece by the Woodwind Company of New York

Anybody ever heard of these pieces? I'm borrowing a friend's tenor since mine is being replaced and he has this mouthpiece with it. It's a D7 and it seems nice. Feel of a hard rubber yet it's ebonite. What exactly is ebonite anyway? Thanx!

    Can't say for sure but when I was a youngster I used to like to bowl and one of the better bowling balls was an "Ebonite" and they were made of hard rubber.

      I could be wrong, but i think ebonite is hard rubber

        I wish I could find one of these to buy...seems like a nice mouthpiece...maybe I'll trade him his for my new S80 C* when I get the LaVoix back *grins an evil grin...*
