I have a Belmonte 24AW that was really dinged up and the silverplate was wearing off so i took it up to the hardware store to get it chrome plated. Now it works great. The chrome really helps keep scrathes and blemishes to a minimum. Why doesnt the mouthpiece come with better plating in the first place? Why are they made out of Brass anyway? Stainless steel sems like it would be much better from the standpoint that it is not as easily bendable.
