From repair shop technicians and mouthpiece manufacturers to professional players and educators, the Lomax Mouthpiece Measuring Kit is a 'must have' item for anyone interested in making quick, accurate measurements of woodwind mouthpiece tip openings, as well as determine facing specifications.
Built in collaboration with woodwind mouthpiece maker Michael Lomax, upon whose initial concept the tool is designed, we are confident this kit will soon become a standard in the industry.
TIP OPENING MEASUREMENT
Most notable of the kit's features is the dial indicator gauge which provides quick, easy measurement of the tip opening. Utilizing a six jeweled movement, the gauge delivers accuracy greater than 1/2 thousandth of inch (100th of a millimeter). The gauge holder is precision machined from solid aluminum billet, and the unique design allows for exceptional ease of use: simply position the table of the mouthpiece along the underside of the holder so that the mouthpiece tip engages the plunger of the gauge. The dial on the easy to read gauge face will clearly indicate tip opening.
Professionals as well as amateur players will find this especially useful when selecting and comparing new mouthpieces, or to confirm listed specifications of their existing mouthpieces. Educators likewise will find this invaluable in allowing them to quickly check students' mouthpieces to help in diagnosing embouchure related problems. And woodwind repair shops as well as the front end sales counter will find great benefit in being able to advise and make recommendations to their clients on tip opening options in the selection of a new mouthpiece.
FACING CURVE MEASUREMENT
For taking facing measurments the kit draws upon a system devised by Erick D. Brand and utilizies a piece of clear glass upon which is etched an easy to read numbered scale. With the mouthpiece held against the glass, the user inserts various steel feelers between the mouthpiece rails and the glass to plot the curve of the facing and determine the lay of the mouthpiece.
The kit comes complete with dial indicator gauge, glass scale, assorted steel feelers, sturdy hinged storage / carrying case, and detailed instruction booklet. Two year limited warranty.
