I own 5. An alto and a baritone of the Knoel Scott signature models and 3 'random' sopranos out of the Halloween lottery!

I didn't fall in love with them. Each to their own certainly applies for mouthpiece tastes.

But most importantly for me, I was not impressed by the finish. I improved them on the facing side as they were not right in my opinion, just because of the technology from what I can tell. Then the baritone one had a wide note that didn't fit right on my otherwise perfect neck cork!

Just my two cents!

But I love the concept.

I've spoken to my son about the materials he has;- PLA, ABS and PETG. They would all seem to be suitable, it's not exactly a tough environment. Does anyone know what the commercial 3D ones are made of? What's needed is the programme to print one. Plenty available free but are they any good?

Surely you only bought them to add a splash of colour to your mouthpiece shelves?
