Some woodwind instrument mouthpiece sans reed. Saxophone say I.
Isn't a saxophone really just a fancy duck call?
It's early days, but I bet I won't read anything funnier than that this year!
I'd rather listen to a dozen banjos than one sax...and that's saying something.

Here's my Savinelli 320 number 5; a Punto Oro Gold Smooth.

I am working on a 7 Day Set of 320s. :thumbs:
So far, I also have a Punto Oro Sandblast, a Fantasia Rusticated, a Marte Rusticated, and an Alligator Brown.

To what?
It looks like a fancy duck call to me.

In what seems to be an attempt to acquire a 365 day set of Starfire pots, I snagged another one for $11.27 delivered off the 'Bay.

Image
Glad it was you that snagged that. I had the half hearted opening bid on it.
It told me I had the opening bid, but then later showed another user. I think it will be a good pipe. Want me to send it to you? I'll do it. I would not have wanted to bid against someone here at PSF.

This is an Ebonite mouthpiece.

Grats! I almost bid on that one, but pics showed what looked to be a hairline crack around the bottom of the bowl. It blended so well with the brush lines I couldn't tell if they were just "clean" lines or actual cracks within the line. Maybe it's a repair job? I don't know. I'd have asked the seller about it, but I figured I'd get some response like "I don't know anything about pipes."

Anyway, I hope this is not the case and you receive a solid chunk of briar. :thumbs:

Correct! Saxuhmophone! Look up Vulcanite mouthpiece and you get pipe stems, type in Ebonite and it's all music. Almost bought a bass with an Ebonite fingerboard but went with the real thing it was designed to mimic instead, Ebony.

I just went back and scanned the photos on full brightness and couldn't see anything that looks like a crack. :?:

Awesome, so you're telling me I missed out on a great deal. LOL Hey, at least Fr. Tom got it. I'm okay with that. ;)
Here's an illustration of what I thought I saw... arrow heads point to the bottom of what I thought was a hairline crack. I wear glasses for near-sightedness, so pardon the mistake. :bang:
