    Some people swear by that comparator, but I've never been able to tell anything by it.

    Perhaps the study of photographic composition might be in order.

    OK.....I got rid of it.....Back to the subject at hand....How are the Kanstul copies? Anyone tried a straight M.V.3?

    At least on my monitor the MV appears a scooch larger at the rim and a bit deeper/wider in the cup area. Same rim it appears, just a touch bigger in the cup.

    I've used the Comparator to discern the major differences between manufacturers, looking specifically at the bite and depth of the cups in comparison to the Bach 1 I play.

    It's good to find a lead piece that closely matches your legit piece, at least it's helped me there!

    I think in this case the Kanstul Comparator is not accurate.

    They only scanned one sample of each size mouthpiece. The particular Mount Vernon 3 scanned might not have been a typical sample (maybe it was a custom). Or perhaps a mistake was made in the labelling of the scan in this case.
