Low is the way to go

Baritone Saxophone Facing Lengths

1 min read

Since I have my Theo Wanne Glass mouthpiece gauge in millimeter x 2 I figured I could measure a few facing lengths  using a 0.04 (0.0015″) feeler gauge. I will measure mouthpieces as they come in and update this post along the way. I have noted with two measurements where each rail is different. Dates are given to differentiate between models purchased at different times. These dates are not manufacture dates as that is unknown, but instead is a purchase date.
