The Meyer Connoisseur alto mouthpiece is based on the original Meyer Bros New York mouthpiece that Cannonball played on and had retro-fitted with a brass retention ring due to a crack in the mouthpiece shank. This new model is a warmer, richer tone than the NY Meyer models while maintaining great response and control.
Molding a mouthpiece requires many unique tools. With the Meyer Connoisseur Alto mouthpiece, Babbitt has returned to using the Original Molds (exterior shape), Cores (chamber and shank) and Facing Cams (creates the facing curve & baffle) used during the Meyer Bros production. This means that these are truly the ORIGINAL mouthpiece re-born, not just a “marketing” gimmick but truly a great mouthpiece brought back from the most legendary brand.
