SOLD - Warm, Vintage Tone all the way - from the vintage era of the late 1930s, a metal mouthpiece that is not loud and bright. These have a huge chamber, low baffle and a very reserved, warm tone. Serial number: DD 68. These were originally made with facings of #2 through 5*, and custom options. This was a Number #3, or Medium. Now at 0.073" it's pretty close to a modern Otto Link 5**.
$699.00 - A uniquely, ultra rare Dukoff mouthpiece from Chadd's Collection that matches all the design measurements for a C-Melody mouthpiece. It was really tricky on arrival and it sent me into heavy research.
The photo comparisons sum it up though. It contained elements from two eras of Dukoff: the Nickel Plated Brass(NPB), and the "Miami, FL" Silverite models:
-made of Silverite
-Vertical "D6" label (like Silverite)
-short shank (like Silverite Alto)
-small bite pad (like NPB model)
-"Dukoff" script (like NPB model)
-Nickel plating over the silverite = True Transitional! wow!
***Reed Window is a match for the length of vintage rubber C-Melody mouthpieces.
$99.00 - Vintage, rubber Geo M Bundy mouthpiece with a very large chamber - Likely paired with the early Bundy saxes that were a Conn Pan-Am/6M spin off. So I'm not surprised that this mouthpiece reminds me of a Conn Eagle mouthpiece with the huge chamber. It's currently in the original facing and tip at 0.055" and it could be refaced to your request (Add $50-100 for a reface). Inquire for additional information.
$199.00 - A unique design: Straight side walls (Brilhart) into a larger throat/chamber than narrows back bore size. Terrific material. I love all Steel Ebonite mouthpieces and this one is unique at that. The added ring at the shank is a great addition for long-term shank protection - the ring is silver plated and was polished here at WWS. "Patent Process No. 1452953". This mouthpiece is currently in original condition and could be opened up if you so desire. Doing so would be a $50+ addition depending on how far you want it to go.
$88.00 - Rubber, arrived with original tip at 0.043". no ligature, on arrival. Ask me for extras if I can help with the ligature. Small round chamber.
Cosmetic condition is a B+. Ask me to inspect/perfect the tip seal.
$99.00 - Large Chamber - Recommended for vintage sopranos! Rubber, arrived with an original tip that was too closed to enjoy. LARGE CHAMBER, and a slight rollover baffle from the reface. The look of the mouthpiece reminds me of some older King mouthpiece shanks - however, it it a longer body.
$129.00 - Large Chamber - Recommended for vintage sopranos! Rubber, arrived with an original tip that was too closed to enjoy. LARGE CHAMBER, and a slight rollover baffle from the reface. The look of the mouthpiece reminds me of some older Buescher 'pickles' with the ring-lip at the shank; but I am not certain on that. The photos are prior to the finished reface and you are free to help guide to with how much baffle you'd like left in there.
$179.00 - This mpc is a nice free blowing mpc with a tip measuring 0.090". Ser # 10749 There was a small tooth imprint that Bob C repaired. I may cover the bite pad with a clear bite tab--typically needed on these mouthpieces. It blows a big sound with heavy mid tones for a metal, cliff-style baffle.
Early vintage series with side-to-side machining on the table (meaning: the early era of likely the 1960s).
Comes with the original ligature and cap.
