Five months after the tuba player asked for the mouthpieces, he returned from touring and gave me the metal mouthpiece to work from. I didn’t make a mold after all. The idea of the mold was to make a special cutting tool to shape the inside. I decided I had enough reference points to get the internal shape needed. It was a success. He was happy with the sounds. He said the cocobolo piece had a stronger tone than the parota. I used a 11 mm round carbide cutter for inside the opening.
