The mouthpiece is barely on the cork

Can be an issue with old baritones. Some have the crook extended.

Once I even asked Gary Smulyan if I could see the inside of his Otto Link.

And his reply was...as long as I can have a blow on your Berg Larsen...:rofl:

Apart from the typo (Sanbornite is the correct term)...
The suffix -ite could indicate "similar material to" like Metallite or Hammerite, but also "adept", like Luddite or Polite (an adept to pole dancers). The suffix -itis indicates pathological affection.
One could be a Sanbornite, without suffering from Sanbornitis or using a mouthpiece made of 100% Sanbornite™.

Once I contracted Breckeritis and it actually helped a lot my practice routine, but affected my self esteem. That came together with a phase in which I assumed San Born was the protector of alto saxophone players, and will help them to sell records playing commercial music. I used a Bari metal, Jumbo Java, Guardala studio. Then I heard Mark Russo with Yellowjackets and went back to a Meyer.

I think you've missed your calling in life - you should be a comedian...:)

I like Marc Russo - been to NZ in the last few years touring with the Doobie Brothers...

And now your a Russoite and suffering from Russoitis...:rofl:

He played that too, but i feel the B9 is his spare. Cafemember Jonf was there too, BTW.

Oh…so: "this is the mouthpiece I play…this other one is the mouthpiece they pay me to say I play."

Not really. He was quite clear that his heart belongs to the old Link. He sounded (of course) great on the Vandoren too.
He is also endorsing their reeds.

I thought I could go for a Vandoren bari mouthpiece, I did not think I would change my reeds (I am thinking now).
Do you have a new bari piece, BTW?

I was >< this close to buying a V16 baritone when I was unexpectedly diverted to Ivrea :)

From a Dukoff for alto to an Absolute for bari. Not bad as an off topic.

Some posts are prone to migrate as soon as DHM satisfies our queries.

I bought Bari and Alto ST models (the E♭ special offer), so it's not quite as off topic as it appears. :)

Further comments elsewhere.

You have two older brothers who both play baritone? The one in the middle doesn't remotely resemble you - I'd never have guessed.

This could be worth an entry in the Guinness Book of Records - or at least could earn you a pint of same if recounted in the bar downstairs...

It is a big relief: looking like Bob McKay would mean I spend too much time with him.
I should add my brotherhood with Gary Tibaldi Smulyan in my C.V.
