Your Doug Elliott collection.

Post by hyperbolica »

Here's my DE set. 9 full mouthpieces and 5 shanks.

2 bass bone, both K8 one LB 112 one XB 114
1 euph J 104
A G and an F that can go large or small shank.
Kind of went crazy in the D and D+ because the D+ were crazy good.
Smallest is C2

Mostly XTn104 lexan rims, one silver, and I have 1 Parker stainless rim which comes close to fitting the XT cups.

I used to have alto, large tenor, and bass DE setups, but I only have an XT N106/C+/D3 piece now for my King.

Doug's rim shapes and size options are the best part about that system. If you want a small bore piece with a bass rim, there are almost no other options on the market. The cups are all good too. His small bore and alto mouthpieces are where his lineup really shines.

It would take me a week to even find all my Elliott collection :lol:

My favorite piece is sitting next to me now, Lexan XT104N / D+ / 3.5. Absolutely perfect, even down into the pedal register!!

An M cup with a G shank will make it a tad long, no?

Also the throat must be overlapping the exit port of the cup. If you think a G shank on it is good I can guarantee you an M shank will blow your socks off!

An M cup should have an M shank. The .G9 is at least 25 years old, and would be a horrible match for an M cup. You won't see any mismatch.

Does the dot mean anything in particular? I have a .G7 in my parts box.

1990's, several years at a point when I changed backbore designs. I've made a few more changes since then.
