Just as a matter of clarification. The new Meyers are quite different
from the older models and the Cole version is not simply the same
mouthpiece with his name on it. In theory, at least, it is a copy of
his own NY Meyer. Why they cannot simply try to reproduce their own
older product without putting his name on it is a mystery to me, as I am
not a marketing type, but that is the gist of it, at least as far as I
understand it. I play an odl NY Meyer on alto and to me it is very
different than the standard modern variety. I don't know if they make
clarinet moputhpieces any more, but I have a NY Meyer clarinet mouthiece
and it is very nice.
