Lelia asked me:

> You don't mention which mouthpiece this is or what's bad about it,

well, if you really want to share my pain, here goes:

1) from what i can tell, beneath a whole bunch of scratches it says "Leo M
2) there is NO rail tip
3) side rails are all pitted, scratched, dented,
4) inside is all scratched
5) chamber looks kinda warped (the side walls aren't even)
6) there's deposits of *some* kind in there - deposits the vinegar and a
careful cleaning didn't remove - they're um, baked on i think...

yah pretty gross - just like the sounds i'm getting from it!! hahaha
i've NEVER screeched so much in my life - not even as a beginner!!!
i'm attracting all the neighborhood cats!!!

p.s. thanks for the info ... i'll use it to try to convince the band to buy
a mouthpiece for the instrument... ANYTHING would be better than this!!!
