I think this silver plated mouthpiece sat in my dad’s workshop for years. I have no idea why my dad would have an old tuba mouthpiece: he played baritone.

It’s a heavy, clunky mouthpiece, but very interesting in design, as well as the inscription.

    As stores are trying to lure holiday shoppers, I am left cold, but as soon as you told me this mouthpiece was a Salvation Army tuba artifact, I started to hear Christmas.
