 RE: crystal mouthpiece lead content

I very much doubt that any lead could be extracted from a glass mouthpiece by means of saliva [even tho it is very slightly basic in pH]. People [including myself] have played on the high quality crystal mp's for years and I have never heard of such an occurence. A similar situation might be presented by the use of expensive {Waterford et al} lead-glass decanters for wines and liquors [long-time storage] and again, no problems known. As Shakespeare may have said, "Much ado about not very much" . Don
