Goldbeck & Co. mouthpieces were made from American (J.J. Babbitt/Otto Link) and French (Selmer, Lelandais, Riffault, and Chedeville) blanks, starting in the 1920s. Frank Kaspar senior (a former employee of Goldbeck) later took over Goldbeck & Co. and continued to produce the same line of mouthpieces under the name ‘Frank Kaspar Co, Chicago Ill.’ Some of the mouthpieces were turned down on a lathe to remove the trade mark of the blank supplier.
