Thanks Chris - This d'amore is a very old one - made in 1910, marked A. Robert ( but made by Couesnon). I contacted Thomas Hiniker with the idea of getting a custom bocal made, but he thought it better to perhaps fit a new insert. I spoke to Richard Craig, and he said that, in his opinion, it would be better to leave the instrument in original condition. He will look at the bocals that I do have, and see if anything can be done to strengthen them, or perhaps make a new one. I will send it down to him and he can decide what is best. I can certainly play on the bocals I have, but the metal is not great and that is why I was looking for something better. Evidently Loree crooks are the same dimensions at the base, as regards the metal, but the corks add about another 1 mm to the overall dimensions. I may be able to work with that. Thanks so much for your valuable, as always, feedback.
