Thanks for the response - although until your answer I had no idea you were
a professional machinist. Please forgive me for my curiosity. I have no
doubt you are absolutely correct regarding the three Pyne mouthpieces you

However, Jim Pyne has already responded to the issue you raised.

A Clarinetist's Revenge is sometimes personified by the following excerpt
from the London Daily News, circa 1926:

"The saxophone is a long metal instrument bent at both ends. It is alleged
to be musical. As regards markings, the creature has a series of tiny taps
stuck upon it, apparently at random. These taps are very sensitive: when
touched they cause the instrument to utter miserable sounds suggesting
untold agony. Sometimes it bursts into tears. At either end there is a
hole. People, sometimes for no reason at all, blow down the small end of
the saxophone which then shrieks and moans."
