    Too rich for me. I don't think an actual vintage HR Berg bari piece would sell for that kind of scratch and you could get two custom made RPCs and have enough left over for a box of reeds for the same or less.

    I was interested too until I saw the price, there are plenty of vintage HR Bergs out there that can be snagged for a lot less.

    Dang... yeah, for that money I assumed it was metal like the other Berg copy they sell. That is going to be a tough one to justify...

    I imagine it's the same mouthpiece Eric makes for Saxquest for around Half that price

    Yeah, Ouch is right.

    625 for a new rubber mouthpiece is beyond the scope of reasonable.

    I have a "Hoss" and unless I'm mistaken so does BH9. Although my primary bari piece is an RPC rollover, the "Hoss" is a terrific mouthpiece which I use on a fairly regular basis. Since the two are made by the same guy, it isn't clear to me why RR felt they believe their version of a Berg could command such a higher price.

    You da' man Bob! Maybe if we all send you $5 to get you started? That should get you about 5% of the way there.

    Really sad when you feel like you need to set up a Kickstarter campaign to fund a mouthpiece purchase.
