C2 Goldbrass

My favorite bocal at MMI was a Heckel C with the goldbrass alloy. When Shawn Mouser, principal of the L.A. Phil wanted bocals on a trial I recommended it. He took 3 CC2 bocals and this one C2. I told him he’d like it. That week he played Mahler 1 on Dudamel’s debut concert on that C2 bocal and is buying it. How neat is that?
