    We gotta get an Olds mouthpiece guru on this. I truly thought the Olds 3 was THEIR ONLY PIECE!

    What do you think about the 16, Alan?

    Interesting, this begs the question of the specs for these pieces. Of which number starts from smallest to highest, etc?

    According to the catalogs available at Alan Rouse's "Olds Central," as of 1962 the Olds trumpet and Cornet line consisted of mouthpieces numbered one through five: http://rouses.net/trumpet/olds62/accessry.htm

    There were two Mendez models, numbered 1 and 2.

    At one time or another I have had a Mendez 2 and several Olds 3's. The Mendez 2 was an interesting piece that I sold to a collector. The Olds 3's were pretty nasty things that I never wanted to play.

    I'm under the impression that later Olds mouthpieces copied the Bach numbering system which might explain the 7, but I have no rationalization for the 16.

    Nothing special Van...I bought it to accompany my 1961 Olds Recording. I went on a mpc safari last year and purchased quite a number on Ebay. I finally settled on a Yamaha 16C4-GP. This does everything I want it to do. I couldn't find any information on the Olds 16 mpc. Uncanny isn't it?

    Interesting.... (I need a beard to stroke whenever I say that, lol!)

    Is the "16" a Vee-feel like the Olds 3?

    You've GOTTA post a pic of the mouthpiece!
