Hi,

I have a Francois Louis T 285 is a 2.85 mm tip opening (112/00”) equivalent to the traditional “8/8*” opening. Combined with a medium long facing length and a soft facing curve. Due to the longer facing curve, it brings more resistance and takes more air.(This make it feel “bigger”) The soft curve gives it a lot of flexibility. This is the best mouthpiece for the professional player that needs to use all possibilities of dynamics, sound colors and range in one mouthpiece., without having to struggle too hard on a real big mouthpiece.
Best fit with 2 1/2 to 4 reeds.

This piece has very slight tooth marks on the beak, other than that it's an excellent player, harmonics pop out and the tone is rich. I want to swap it as I find it too dark for my tastes. As an experiment, I'm looking for a piece with a smaller tip opening.. Like an old Berg or something !! medium bright!!

PM me with offers

Rgds,

Even a Yani Metal 7 would be a nice swap, I have one already and wouldn't mind having a second..
(psst: I think you should have posted this in the market area...)

I might be interested...
I have one Berg Larsen Stainless Steel 75/3 SMS which is just too narrow for my taste - this size isn't even listed in the current Berg Larsen website (the smaller tenor is a 90) and I wonder if I have a rarity because I can't find any reference about this particular Berg.
Then if I had a choice I'd rather swap with another Berg Larsen (maybe a bullett?) in need of tlc...maybe can be put back in playing condition by I can't guarantee - the given size is 80/2 SMS, but this is totally irrelevant because some previous owners made a very poor diy refacing job - to this I'll add an interesting ROC 3* - very loud, bright and edgy, good for contemporary music (I have the 5* and happier with this wider tip opening).

First of all, my apologies for putting up this notice here, I thought market area was only for sales. I was confused as to where to post swaps.

Zannad, thank you for your enquiry, unfortunately for you this piece is gone. I swapped it for an Yani metal mpc as requested.

Thank you again,

Rgds,
