    hello fellow players,
    I'm asking if anyone knows if the Benge CG lead pipe is the same as the Benge #3 pipe ?
    also, if it is, is there any one who has it available for purchase ?
    no biggie, but there is some very small bubbles on the underside of the pipe near the valve casing,but it's nothing major, just planning ahead for now.

    one more,does those "patches" affect the tone/sound and response of the horn if needed ?
    anyone has them on their horns ?

    thanks for your help,
    aloha,

    Call Kanstul, Zig would know the answer first hand. He probably has the mandrel to draw that pipe. If I am not mistaken, the Burbank 6*, which he built for Donald Benge and Michael Thomas, was a copy of the Benge CG.
