    hey, I currently play a bach 3c and a shilke 12b4, but I thinking about trying some callet pieces since they are supposed to be the best match for callet horns, I plan on trying a wide variety, but what models would I probably adapt to quickest based on what I currently play.

    A Callet 3, 3C, or 7 would be a good bet. 3C on the bigger end, 7 on the smaller end.

    Sean, you should definitely check Dillons, they have a lot of Callet pieces. Also, Brader has about 15 of them sitting at his house, and I can give you his email address or phone number if you want.

    The Callet mouthpieces are great. They tend to be larger that is stated. Jerry measures a little further down in the cup. I have a 10M if you are interested.
    Thanks

    Hi David,

    How is the Holton Symphony model you just bought?

    I managed a music store around '84 when the Holton rep. brought one by . . . and it ate a really nice 72* that I owned for lunch!

    Warmest regards,

    Tom

    Tom,
    I like it a lot! I like it better than the French Besson I had. I am working on a complete test.
    The Callet 10M is still for sale. :wink:
