 Happy mouthpiece customer

Today I got a package in the mail- an old Gigliotti mouthpiece that Nathan Beaty refaced to number/specs I sent him. He wasn't too happy with my numbers (and we both understand that there are so many factors of design involved that one facing may work well with one blank, but have a bad result with another) but at my insistence he stuck with a facing that matched my favourite mouthpiece.
It plays very well, and his craftsmanship is of excellent quality - definitely a mouthpiece I'll be hanging on to (it's one of the "A=442" blanks, so quite useful as winter is coming here- tend to have annoying low room temperature in rehearsal venues). I've got an A clarinet that plays quite flat (so I use a 63mm barrel) and a Mozart Quintet coming up - this mouthpiece should turn out quite useful!
Nice work Nathan!

I have an Otto Link Reso-Tone that Nathan refaced for me a year ago. Took me a while to figure it out, but this plays very well with a Legere Euro Signature, and has become the main piece matched to my Selmer CT.

Great work, Nathan!

Sounds great. Out of curiosity, what are the facing numbers you requested?

Using a Morgan kit (the tip wand has proven accurate when compared to digital measurements and a Lomax kit)... Tip opening 1.08 to 1.09. 6 - 12+ - 24 and a length just under 38, though in general with thicker rails 38 ish, thinner rail 36 ish as a rule. I am not sure of the exact specs I gave Nathan as it was an email some time ago, but it would have been around these parameters.
