Selmer ‘S80 C*’ Baritone, Rubber – 0.079″ (Archived)

SOLD - A "must have" for concert band! A hard rubber mouthpiece that is a great addition to any player and especially those on a budget. Due to what I know of this mouthpiece, it came with my friend's sax from about 1984-86; aka, this is from the early era! Consider that new pricing is $240-270.00 ... come quick!
Marketed Description via WWBW:
"Precision crafted with a firm yet responsive feel. -- The Selmer S80 tenor saxophone mouthpiece is a popular design, and one of the biggest sellers in the marketplace. It is constructed from hard rod rubber, which lends it outstanding stability, accuracy and consistent facings. Whereas most mouthpieces have an arched cross-section in the chamber, the S80 is square. Students stepping up from a stock mouthpiece will experience a dramatic improvement in register changes and tonguing immediately in terms of tone and response."

Wolfe Tayne ‘Gold 4*’ Alto, Gold Plated – 0.072″ (Archived)

SOLD - Gold plated alto mouthpiece in excellent shape. The machining on the table (horizontal) indicates it's the 'older' version of the WT mouthpieces. I am not sure if they were using the same machining as Brilhart though (horizontal in the 1970s).
SOUND: They maintain easy playability with a centered tone that still has controllable power it in. One I had (a larger tip) was one of the most amazing alto mpcs I've seen in a while - the first customer to try it, bought it!
Comes with replacement, ligature (wrap) and cap (plastic).

Berg Larsen ‘105-2-SMS’ Tenor, 2000s Grained Ebonite, (WWS) – 0.108″

$319.00 - Bob's Collection - One amazing example! You'll love it. Marked [105-2-SMS], this mouthpiece was enhanced by me. ***I made as much of a copy on the facing curve as I could to my personal 110-2-SMS, vintage rubber ($450) Berg. I have had serious thoughts about buying this from Bob to add as my 'backup' mouthpiece, God forbid should anything happen to my main one. With a nice Berg ligature.
The description from the Berg Larsen website:
"A mouthpiece with a warm tone and a generally round sound manufactured using superior grade ebonite with a classy grained effect."

Otto Link ‘Super Tone Master – 9*’ Tenor, Florida USA (WWS reface)- 0.123″ (Archived)

$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

Buescher ‘Whitehall’ Baritone, 1940s (WWS Reface) – 0.102″ (Archived)

SOLD - Custom Reface! + Large chamber! - A vintage hard rubber mouthpiece that is a copy of a vintage Buescher that I would approximate from the 1940s. This one had a large chamber and the original tip (needing some minor seal help) at 0.074" on arrival. Now it measures 0.102". it is an easy blower and has a big sound. It must be a unique blend because you seldom see a large chamber that remains with a high-rollover baffle. Large chamber & high baffle from custom reface. Item: WWSL4.7W6.12151.6-018
