Wondered who can tell me what the 4 digit alpha numeric stamp means on the shank of the metal Vandoren mouthpiece is? One I looked at was "45aa" as an example.

Cheers.

Hmmmm, no replies here and couldn't find anything on the net. Intruiging. I looked at various images and there are lots of different combinations out there. On t75s I was looking at I found 5 different combinations in a short time. I am going to guess a production run if no one can advise .

Hi

I've had one of these mouthpieces. It came with a drawing of the facing curve as measured by Vandoren after manufacture and plating. I think that the stamp on the mouthpiece references this record, and is a serial number unique to the mouthpiece. I've since sold the mouthpiece so can't confirm this.
