    Hello,
    I am new to this so here goes. I am using Paris Selmer double cup mouthpieces a soloist and a special. I can't find any information on these
    vintage mouthpieces. Does anybody have any information on them?
    Thanks

    You might try contacting the Selmer Company direct. They may still have some old info around on those. It sounds strange to me that they would have made a double cup mouthpiece.
    That patent was held by Parduba Mouthpieces. Harry James was one of many who used them (Parduba)
    My old Selmer K Modified came with a Selmer Paris mouthpiece, but it wasn't a double cup model.

    Thanks for the info. I have never seen any of these either. They are defnitly double cups. They play well.
    I have never seen any more though and I would like to find more.
    The soloist has these dimentions .300 bore and 3.222 long
    The special bore .330 and length 3.440 long.
    Thanks for any help
