A unique design: Straight side walls (Brilhart) into a larger throat/chamber than narrows back to bore size. Terrific material. I love all Steel Ebonite mouthpieces and this one is unique at that. The added ring at the shank is a great addition for long-term shank protection - the ring is silver plated and was polished here at WWS.

"Patent Process No. 1452953" - a refacing machine
(I've seen the same for "Meliphone Special" mouthpieces too)

This mouthpiece is currently in original condition and could be opened up if you so desire. Doing so would be a $50+ addition depending on how far you want it to go.
