J. Shouryu Nohe, a/k/a Shouryunus Sarcasticii posted regarding his recent
tenor sax acquisition:

<<< . . . To my utter delight, it came equipped with a Meyer mpc...although
I use an Otto for tenor playing, I certainly look forward to playing the
Meyer for a bit to see what it's like. It is not, however, like any Meyer
I've ever seen before (keep in mind that I'm a mere 22 years old, and mine
eyes have to see many wonders of the musical world). The facing number is
printed on the back (it's a 5) and the standard 'info diamond' that I'm
accustomed to seeing on Meyers is not on the facing. Instead, there is a
long, very shallow canyon in the facing, in which is printed "Meyer TruFlex
Facing"! Indeed, something very different. At least to me.

Is this one of the 'classic' large bore Meyers I've heard so much about? You
know, the kind we all wish they used to make...the kind Cannonball used to
play on, etc etc etc?>>>

Ah, Shouryu, the Meyer you have predates Messrs. Adderley, Woods et. al.
It's but an aberration made in the '20s and '30s, and is of no value at all.
I will gladly take it off your hands for a small disposition fee.

. . . but seriously, try it out. It sounds very much like my Meyer -- the
only mouthpiece I use on tenor any more. I *love* mine; let me know if you
like yours. I use a medium hard Fibercell on it for jazz and pit work, and
get compliments on the tone frequently. With a cane reed it works very well
in the concert band too.

As for the rest of you -- neener, neener neener.
