Still available?
What piece are you playing now and why?
How would you describe the rim - narrow, wide, or in between?

I'll throw in my 2 cents cause I'm nosey :pant:

The rim is wider than a stock Bach rim but not full on Rath 1 1/2W or a Doug Elliott wide rim wide.

Oops, I double posted above. I sold my gold plated Bach 1 1/2 G because the rim felt like it was cutting my lips. I play the Rath 1 1/2 W for over a year now. Curious to know how the Mr Bass may be different.

The Mr.Bass rim is comfy, not a cookie cutter like the Bach.

It does feel quite a bit larger on the face then a stock Bach even though the specs are almost identical.

Spec wise, Mr. Deacon mentioned already a lot of details.
This mouthpiece is very comfortable and makes a really nice sound, warm and focused. For what Ido for a living, this mouthpiece however is too small to get used to as my main piece.

I am not a collector, so of it goes, should there a e interest.

Send me a message on payment arrangements and I will see if it is “just right” for me.
Thank you.
