I received the mouthpiece on Friday. Excellent job. Thanks for removing the casting bump.

Scott – the mouthpiece is very much improved…it’s now playing great. Much thanks!

Got the mouthpiece yesterday, and it looks great…much better fit and feel with the new bite plate in place.

Hi Scott, really nice job on the Dukoff. Plays well. It sounds very full and centered, especially in the low register. Thanks again.

By the way, the Meyer you refaced for me is fantastic. I had two Meyers, a Phil-Tone and the one you refaced. I sold the Phil-Tone Meyer.

Just wanted to attest it was a great pleasure doing business with Scott. This piece came out exactly how I envisioned it (a thin band preserving the Great Neck markings). The repair looks solid and it’s been holding up just fine. It’s very comforting knowing the band is there to protect cracks from further developing, as I push it in and pull it out from the neck cork.

Hi Scott, I received the mpc today. Great job! Thanks a lot. I’ll let you know next time I may need a repair again. 🙂

I received the Dukoff last week…really sounds great on the low register – big grin. Also tames the tendency of the high G to squeak a D. Thanks for your help.
