I have a rim that I bought in the early 80's used, that I love to play. Being my standard, it has finally lost all of its plating and needs replating. Prior to sending it off, I'd love to get my hands on another, but none of the stores around here know what it is and I can't identify on the web. It is sharp, narrow and has the sharpest point right on the middle of the rim. It was in the bucket of used Giardinelli rims and fits my S15 perfectly. I can't post a photo, sorry. Any ideas? Thanks

Your best bet would be to contact John Stork at Stork Mouthpieces. He would know what you are talking about. He used to work with Giardenilli. The rim description sound slike a rim from the later 70's or early 80's. I don't think there was a number system for them at that time. Giardenilli has had some interesting changes over the years and since being sold and discontinued for all practical purposes.If you want something like a classic Giardenilli see Stork Mouthpieces.

Mr. Stork ID'd it as a C rim that had escaped prior to being sanded and polished. When I got some new C rims from ebay, they are the exact proportions except smoother. He can certainly duplicate the rim, but at the moment, these new C rims are quite nice, and custom work is beyond my means unless the sale of the second horn has some left-over after the next horn is purchased. Thanks for that lead!

I used to have a C10. I like the sound it produced. I liked how it was easier to play in the upper register. But when I used it for a while, it made me get a bruise right in the center of my upper lip. I know this is a popular mouthpiece, so I totally don't understand why this happened. I don't play with a lot of mouthpiece pressure. It just wasn't good for me. I sold it to someone on line for $15. He was very happy to get it, said it solved a lot of problems for him. I was happy to get rid of it. Go figure. One man's treasure is another's trash.

Interesting, since I don't have a lot of days to play (commute and weird working hours) so I'll play for a couple hours 2 days a week. I would think that would do a lot more damage than working into it. I've never had the issues and just love the thing. Now to just get the valves done so my resistance is even across the instrument.
