$950.00 SOLD - Ultra rare, side-stamped 9* tenor mouthpiece. It arrived with a 0.120" tip that had crooked rails and a poor tip seal. It also had a custom baffle that we took out. The tip and rails looked original, so I must conclude that it took a tough bump along the way. Otherwise, no other obvious damage to figure out that story. It is currently paired with a 1990s/00s ligature. This era is a great era of mouthpieces and now plays easy after the refacing work. TONE: Huge tone/resonance in the low end, a more medium tone in the middle and high ranges. This era is known for regaining the warmth as the baffle leveled/rounded out. I know you'll want to try this one. WWSL0W3.0W0..3311.7-C60-006
$450.00 - Tip seal was enhanced here at WWS for very minimal change [near original tip at 0.118"]. With original ligature and cap.
SOLD - vintage plastic mouthpiece with good material; no serial number keeps the price lower!. The original tip is at 0.069" , vertical table markings. side-walled chamber and a true Brilhart-tonalin-ebolin sound = clean, simple, warm. Less cut in the tone. Item: WWSL4.7W6.12151.6-004
$129.00 - Vintage hard rubber from 1930s. It has a large Chamber and I just had Bob Carpenter open it up to 0.071". It plays really easy. I would say it sounds typical of a stuffy, vintage tone but after Bob's work, it can cut through in the high register--still not as loud of a mpc as others. no ligature, sorry. Item:WWS00.2121.4-0GOMZ
$325.00 - Another rare mouthpiece listed, it was named after the saxophonist in the Whiteman Orchestra of the 30s and 40s. Terrific material and good classic design...very similar to "The Woodwind Co." models... Large chamber makes for a big vintage sound. But also more suitable for Concert Bands and jazz alike. Bob Carpenter just opened this one up to a easy blowing 0.090" with a 21mm facing length and inscribed the his "RAC 90-21" on the table(sign of Bob's heartfelt workmanship again). The crystallized yellow band IS original! sorry, no ligature.
This has a great mellowness to the tone and blows Outstandingly easy! I REALLY wanted to keep this one when I got it back from Bob. It plays so much like my Tonalin 5 (I use on most sound files) that it must be an Alto player's delight at that 0.090" tip. = plays like butter!
$SOLD - SOUND: Focused warmth and slight edge--from flat sidewalls into round chamber(throat). "Rico Products LTD Distributors" + "Model A". These have a shallow beak that allows the mouthpiece to vibrate freely like Gregorys are known for. TIP arrived measuring very much original 0.078". However, when I look at it, I feel like there was very very minor work done to the tip to help it seal (perhaps). I'll inspect this and make sure it plays awesome. After refacing work here at WWS, the tip measures 0.084".
$1,200.00 - Sarge's notes on this one: "Nickel silver plated brass (prototype to SPC or Dave Guardala), original tip D8, unfooled with--$1200."
Original tip @ 0.101". It plays big and awesome! See the SOUND FILE.
ON TRIAL - silver plated brass, Serial #634, beautiful tone. It arrived with silver separating on the table and the corner tip has a bad seal, also a tooth groove that I had Bob Carpenter fill in to repair. It walked in Original at 0.093", but the repairs were required. I repaired/refaced it to 0.096" and silver plated the repairs and table. A superb Player! medium chamber makes this the Type A (of 2; so, the older model). You will want to try this one!
