    Thank goodness, I've been losing so much sleep wondering with I'm going to do with that $10K I've been hiding under my mattress! :lol:

    Oh yeah, free shipping on a mouthpiece...don't hurt yourself.

    If you see my name as the buyer, I would like at least two of you to come beat me to a pulp...spare the lips, though. Thanks.

    Note how *LONG* that seller's description of the mouthpiece is.
    9,237,793 words to describe a *mouthpiece*.
    That seller is so long-winded *he* should be playing the mouthpiece.

    Maybe it's not a mouthpiece.
    Maybe it's a one-of-a-kind all-in-one-piece 3-1/2" long trumpet.
    Notice the rimless bell on the far right in imitation of the Conn Vocabells of the 1930's and 1940's.
    I wonder which octave it's optimized for?

    After a little investigation, I believe this could be a part
    of a Holly racing carburator. As you can see on the picture,
    this part is equipped with a venturi, and under the venturi
    there is cooling ribs which cools down the heat, caused
    by the friction of fast air. You can also attach a micro intercooler
    to help the cooling when it is used at high frequencies.

    I have seen these devices adverticed at Summit Racing
    for $ 3,50 + shipping costs

    So, be careful when bidding on this item, unless you own a racing car

    I know that seller. He posts from time to time on the "other" trumpet forum and seems to be a nice guy. He's Steve Cass, his dad was Al Cass.
