Finally decided it's time to tighten my grip on reality and loosen my grip on a ton of my mouthpieces. I learned a lot from collecting them and experimenting, but the reality is I have far too many mouthpieces and I want them to go to good homes.

Just for reference, when buying directly from Parke, new rims are $100 each, new cups are $150, and new one pieces are $200. Price is reflective of condition relative to new. Feel free to negotiate or ask for pictures!

Rims have no cup or backbore attached.
Cups have no rim or backbore attached.
Backbores have no rim or cup attached.
Tops are a rim and cup in one piece, with no backbore attached.
Underparts are a cup and backbore in one piece, with no rim attached.

The threads are cut way too high on this cup, leaving a deeper and wider cup than it’s supposed to be. A Parke 660 rim is still slightly too narrow and probably the cup depth is closer to 285 or 290.
