Here's another great, hard rubber mouthpiece. As Bob says: "these are the good rubber...they even taste like it". Ha, dare I say, he's right. you can taste the quality rubber. (I hope my cleaners can also act as as sealer to the rubber--to help the playing experience away from the taste of vintage rubber). It arrived with original tip at 0.084" but it will get a WWS Reface here. The air goes into straight side-walls, into a Medium round chamber (slightly smaller than my other Couf Artist), currently with no baffle (small rollover likely in reface). This has a semi-slimline look. I have had several of these that were really fun! This one has a slightly smaller medium chamber than Sarge's collection one (The "Artist"). This is the next generation with the [COUF] labeling--mostly worn off now.
