If you're not sure that you've got everything and need that little something to feel complete, try this. You know you want one >:)

It is said that Adolph Sax based the saxophone on the Ophicleide, by bunging a clarinet mouthpiece on one and voila!

Every home does have one especially when the emergency plumber has been around and not tidied up afterwards.

Apparently in the same family of the Ophicleides, there were stuff that could be played either with a brass or a woodwind mouthpiece.
Luckily those instruments are almost extinct; can you imagine a double search for the right mouthpiece?
