 Re: Vintage, or Vintage Clone?

Always up for a challenge, Allan. Thanks for unveiling the mystery.

I agree with Allan that the thickness of material seems to have as much to do with sound as anything. I don't like duck billed mouthpieces because it is harder for me to control the sound and intonation. Just a personal thing, I guess--but I've always found that if I put a thick mouthpiece patch on a duck-billed mouthpiece it improves that problem. So, perhaps it is added thickness in that area that makes the difference.

I know also that the baffle of the mouthpiece makes a huge difference. Some have said they think Frank Kaspar's "secret" was in the baffle. I'm baffled. Pardon me, pun just slipped out.
