    You boil your mouthpiece? I'm pretty sure you boil it in water, and water boils at 100 degrees celcius. 100 degrees celcious!!!! I'm pretty sure thats not good for gold plated mouthpieces....

    I've boiled a gold plated piece, no effect. I'll think about that for the future.

    Thx,

    Umm, unless they do something funky that I don't know about when putting the gold on it shouldn't do anything. The melting point of gold is over 1000 degress c, so...
