Refacing

Please email for advising between Chadd or Bob Carpenter's work orders and pricing. (Metal does cost more than rubber/plastic.) Unofficial Quote: $100 for Rubber, $150 for Metals. (plating to seal the work is additional)
  • SCRIPT ENHANCEMENT - Black or Gold or (white etc...ask about a custom):
    • Gold is what Bob uses on all his signature pieces, Selmer touches and many others that want to add some flare to the logos.
    • Black on Chadd's Tonalin. (Before & After), the white plastic white doesn't bond as well, but it can help some.

How To Order

I look forward to connecting with you. Use the new guide to get the ball rolling.

Pictured below is an original vintage Otto Link "Tone Master" that was worn through the gold and silver plating into the brass core. In order for gold can be plated properly, it requires a layer of silver plating. It's a nice look just at that, too!

Second Step: Silver


 

The WWS Custom CH6

Here is an example of one of those cheap ebay mouthpieces direct from China. The mouthpiece's facing was a wreck! After I addressed the main issues, the mouthpiece came alive.

 

With continued thanks to Bob's mentorship, I was able to address this project long ago. A brass mpc with gold plating over silver. quite the example mouthpiece here: it is one of those $60 Chinese mouthpieces BUT it arrived with the worst facing example I've seen in a long time! it was a wreck: long, crooked facing; out of level table; bad seal; ..etc!!! It arrived with a 0.072" ...I addressed all those issues and I refaced it to a 0.094" or equal to a dukoff D6. Oh, and I gold plated the facing repairs too. Now it's a very nice player and actually (!) blowing. It seals with a great "pop" too! The late bullet in the baffle offers a sound that reminds me of Guardala/Berg  Larsen sound. I'm losing money on this one for the time & gold, but it offers a unique depth to the  sound without massive volume.

Buescher ‘Whitehall’ Baritone

Large chamber & high baffle from custom reface.

A vintage hard rubber mouthpiece that is a copy of a vintage Buescher that I would approximate from the 1940s. This one had a large chamber and the original tip (needing some minor seal help) at 0.074" on arrival.

Now it measures 0.102". it is an easy blower and has a big sound. It must be a unique blend because you seldom see a large chamber that remains with a high-rollover baffle.
