Are you playing on a Greg Smith? If so, is it one of the earlier ones or
one made within the last year? The originals were actually made by
Richard Hawkins, who is the new tech. at Leblanc (I believe for
mouthpieces). Check the mouthpiece and see if there is an RH inscribed
anywhere....if so, it is actually a Richard Hawkins and distributed by
Smith. The ones without the inscription are now made by Smith himself.
