You guys are missing the boat on how to properly bling your mouthpiece.

The engraving adds an extra octave to your range and this one has two cups.. that means it's twice as good.

And we all know that it's much better to look good than to be good.

I don't know if it's better, but it might be more likely to actually happen, in my case anyway! It seems to me that I've seen some pretty fancy work done on a Kelly mouthpiece.

And I'm guilty of doing some of that myself.

How do you bling your mouthpiece?
Still searching for a 8/4 EEb
I mean if you want to, you can buy me the tuba in my name :P

Kelly mouthpieces are the total bomb for blinging mouthpieces. Not only are they available in all the colors of the rainbow including glow in the dark but they offer a cheap quality mouthpiece that you can use as a clean slate to customize as you see fit.

It should be on account of me having to buy the fingernail polish on my own.

Go read the long dissertation by the owner that was posted as a link earlier in this thread.

Personal issues are colliding with trying to run a family business, resulting in kuku for coco puffs. That document is nuts.

"What" is the first of three words that I kept saying to myself as I read that.
