I posted earlier that the Gigliotti P mouthpiece I measured and faced had
a very close tip opening and a short curve schedule. Well, I was half
right. It was the close tip opening in conjunction with a long schedule
(bottom end) that caused problems for me. Here is what my notes were when
I measured:

99 tip opening
4
11
24(-)
39

The 99 and 4 numbers are what make this such a difficult mouthpiece to
play on.....in my opinion. Also, as I mentioned earlier, I had to adjust
the tip rails and the baffle once it was faced to:

101
6
12
22
36
