MELLOPHONE

MELLOPHONE MOUTHPIECE

This has a trumpet rim with a mellophone shank and was designed for STAN KENTON who wanted the mellophone sound.

CARL SAUNDERS SPEAK ABOUT ALFRED CASSINELLI

I am in the photo with Stan kenton. I'm on the far right..  Al made some mouthpieces for the mellophonium players in the band..  

That was 1961 I don't have the mouthpiece anymore and of course don't play mellophonium anymore either .  

Al never made me a trumpet mouthpiece because I was playing the mellophonium at the time..

Al was a nice guy I think his brother was helping him as I remember. It's been quite a while..   Regards  Carl Saunders
