Ted Klum Facing - .108
This is a nice B&N Bob Ackerman “Lost Wax” with facing work done by Ted Klum to .108”.  The mouthpiece is in great shape around the beak and outer body. Its facing profile of the table, tip and side rails is pristine and in excellent shape. 
 
The inner workings of the mouthpiece are made with a “lost wax” technique. This replica technology is very similar to what your dentist does to make molds of your teeth. It requires breaking a ceramic mold to get the finished product out. This means that each mouthpiece is laboriously hand crafted as the mold used to create it is destroyed in the process and must be remade for each individual mouthpiece.
 
The Lost Wax pieces play very akin to the vintage Otto Link Slant Signature. This piece in particular is an outstanding playing mouthpiece. It takes in the air easy and has a quick and precise response. The piece does lean on the darker side of the color spectrum while keeping a clear focused character. Projection is excellent on this piece as well. If you are looking to get a the characteristics of a vintage Link at half the price a lost wax is a great way to go.
