Does anyone have a mouthpiece extractor for sale? If so, please pm me with details.
Brand new, cheapest at Dawkes, worth getting,
What a rip off.......around half the price of a band new cornet......must cost oooohhhhhhh about a fiver to mass produce...........
Id stick to wacking them out with another mouthpeice Shaun!!!! Wait till China starts making them for 50p and giving them free with every instrument sold!!!!
i think i made something like that at school!
seriously - it doesnt look too techincal. how does it connect to the different mouthpiece sizes? i wouldnt mind having a pop at making one
They are worth having. Wouldn't be without mine. Having said that I get a lot of use out of it at school when kids repeatedly drop their instruments!
I think for anyone working with kids/beginners, junior bands, school bands etc., it's an absolutely essential piece of kit, and will pay for itself many times over.
If, on the other hand you've just got one stuck 'piece, probably better off taking it into your local repairer ...
[@Fatcontroler: it has two plates on the underside which adjust to different shank/receiver diameters ... ]
Yes indeed, does everything from cornet to tuba.
I've only ever needed one once in the last 15 years, but being a good customer, the local music shop did it for free when some idiot kicked my trumpet off of it's stand, wedging the mouthpiece in the process. I bet my grandad could make me one if I showed him how it worked (and it would be a lot better quality than anything else on the market!
My music teacher used to jam it in a door and pull
I knew somone who tried that and ended up with a cornet in three pieces and the mouthpiece still stuck fast!
They are a fanatastic job! Worth the money if you work with kids. I've had mine for about 10 years and would be lost without it; if only someone would invent something similar for removing slides!
