There probably is a new model that is based on the older model, but it may not be exactly the same internal dimensions as the old one. Also, the outside shape is different, as you probably already know. It's been my experience that the sound quality between the new and old is not that much different on the larger mouthpieces, but on the smaller ones (such as yours), the newer outside shape makes for less "ring" in the sound than the older one, due to the greater wall thickness. You may not find this to be the case, however.
I would reccomend calling Custom Music Co. to find out what the new model # is, so that you can try them out. You can also ask if they have any old ones laying around; I've seen them in the past there. Good luck.
