~ Paul Cacia Mouthpiece History~

1966 - Started on a Olds #3 that came with the trumpet.

From there I played on:
Bach 7C
Bach 5C
Bach 3C
Bach 1 1/4 C with a full Schmidt backbore, #19 drill, skeletonized, with a
Morse taper.

Schilke 13A4a, one of the first 3 made, bought from Mike Vax. (this Schilke is
different from the one that was mass produced)

Bob Reeves model mouthpiece's, multiple mouthpiece's with screw rims
and different bottoms. (they ended up in the American River in Sacramento)

I finally chose the Schilke 13A4a to play regularly.

1984 - Marcinkiewicz made a copy of that Schilke, a prototype, which I played until 2005.
bbbbb(different from the one that was mass produced by Marcinkiewicz)

2005 - I currently play the Cacia Model mouthpiece.
