This is the mouthpiece that started it all! I got this mouthpiece in a trade years ago. It’s a Metal Barone NY 7* I wasn’t very impressed with it as it was, it was bright and stuffy and had way to much resistance. I had the idea of sending it to Ed Zentera to reface it and open it to .110. Ed did a great job on it. I’ve sent it back to him 3 times. Each time he lowered the baffle a bit to make it darker and reduce the resistance. It plays very close to what I want now. This is the first mouthpiece that I put up when the website started so I have a sentimaental attachment to this clip. As a side note, i haven’t played a Barone mouthpiece since this day. I played a few before I started this website and a couple of them were killing as I remember. Phil says he’s making one for me to try so I hope someday to try an original Barone one again.
Here’s the Barone again by popular demand. Playing “My One and Only Love”.
