Recently back from a refacing by Bob Carpenter to a 0.079" with a 19mm facing. Bob marked his etching on the table too ("RAC")! A great hard rubber mouthpiece that will give you a warm full sound--It would have been originally paired with a Conn Chu. A large chamber on this one. Bob and I helped enhance the gold 'eagle' script.
NOTE: the original facing was "0.078" as it was inscribed. But a nick happened in the tip and BOB had to repair it. It now measures 0.079"
