Hi, Derek. My custom mouthpiece arrived this afternoon and thanks so much for getting it to me way ahead of schedule. This is a remarkable piece of equipment, and seems to be everything I hoped it would be. I may not have mentioned it, but I am 78 years old and have had quite a few issues with my embouchure over the past 5 years. My biggest difficulty has been with producing a steady tone; hence my interest in your Big Daddy blank.
True to your description of the piece, it does produce a good, steady tone with a stable core. It’s amazing that you were able to replicate the “Git ‘er Done” rim in the larger size with a Schilke 9C4 underpart. This is probably the most comfortable mouthpiece I’ve ever used. All I can say is thank you and congratulations on some really excellent work.
Thank you, Jim, for the kind words! – Derek
