Price is $240. Brand new shape. Not even a shank mark.

Two questions. One, does it have the Wedge rim to it? Two, could you state what your asking price is, please?

Did they take an existing Cooley Helleberg and put their rim profile on it, or did they make a "Cooley" using their own mouthpiece blank? I would be interested in the former, but probably not the latter.

Also, posting a photo would be helpful.

If it is anything like the one my teacher Jacob Cameron has it is the Wedge blank with the measurements from a Cooley Helleberg. I tried it and it plays great!

I am a huge believer that the outer contours of the mouthpiece are almost as important to the way a mouthpiece sounds as the inside contours. I have a Wedge 7B in their standard blank, and don't find it visually appealing and find that it sounds too bright for my personal taste.

However, I do like the way the rim feels, so if they took a Cooley Helleberg and machined the Wedge rim onto it, I would be very interested.

I don't get it. The answer you gave me was precisely the opposite: Cooley Helleberg with a Wedge rim.

I thought this was confusing.

OK, fair enough. You obviously confused yourself because here are your exact words half-way down: "Yes, it's the Wedge blank with a Cooley rim". Regardless, the price is too steep for me. Thank you for being straight forward about the price.
