I have one of his very first of the smaller ones. I would trade it.

I have no corks for it. The velcro is still there, but I was planning to re-cork it permanently. It is too small for my BATs and fits my 186 clone pretty well. It fits my Kurath F perfectly. (The Kurath is the first version of the later Willson 3200FA-5.)

We could drive out to meet one another, perhaps in Tyler? I am a long way away, but have a long-standing beef against shipping anything from my locale as it will be destroyed. Incoming stuff fares much better, but fragile stuff still dies a hard death.

I would propose you keep all your corks. I will bring the ones I still have. You can have my mute and all the corks from both. I will take yours without any corks in exchange for mine, as described.

This road trip will give my wife and me the excuse needed to visit my mom down in South Texas. But my way home only goes as far west as Tyler. From there we head down to Waco on 31 to get onto 35. cuts out a ton of time. If you are interested, PM me and I will send you my number. We can then text or talk in private to see if this is something you want to do. My mute is still in excellent shape despite being about 12 years old. My issue is that I only ever use my BAT or my F for muted parts. I have a metal mute for both now, so this one is just not getting any use. If I can make yours fit my BAT that would give me a second muted tone from which to choose. And that would be pretty cool, in my book. ;-)
