Otto Link ‘Super Tone Master – 5’ Tenor, FL-Double Band – 0.081″

$1,099-1,199.00 - Full Package: Box, ligature and cap! Who doesn't love a double-band? It arrived with a 0.079" tip that had a poor tip seal and unlevel table. I hate altering these great pieces, ...but it needed done. This era is a great era of mouthpieces and it 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. Evenness and sultry. This era is known for ....greatness.
I know you'll want to try this one.
WWS Refacing work: pending - seal plating (silver and gold on the table/entire mouthpiece!), included at the listing price.
PRICING OPTION: Ask me about refacing it, opening it up some more. Realistically, the max tip to get to on this one will be about 0.090-095". For the pricing of $1,199.00, this will also include plating the repairs.
(Thus, that is why the mouthpiece is in it's rough, arrival condition. PLATING WILL HAPPEN ONCE YOU HELP ME LOCK IN THE TIP SIZE. I only want to plate it once.)

Brilhart ‘Level-Air 5*’ Tenor, 1973 Ser#73,173 – 0.089″

$169.00 - This mpc is a nice free blowing mpc with a tip measuring 0.089". Tooth pad in excellent shape. It blows easy and with a big sound with heavy mid tones for a metal, cliff-style baffle. Vertical denim table marks date it to the 70s as well. These are made of stainless steel.
Currently paired with the original ligature and cap (these are often lost and someone may try to separate these from me).

Selmer ‘”Soloist E”‘ Alto, 1950s Short Scroll Shank – 0.079″

$999.00 - Very rare, desirable "Soloist E" + single screw ligature!!! Made of excellent hard rubber, these mouthpieces have the horseshoe chamber and offer a clean, warm, vintage tone that can do many genres - that's probably helped the demand go up.
The tip measures 0.079" (+) and is a bit on the [larger] side for most alto players. Good for legit, concert band, or orchestra work, or subtle, vintage jazz, lead alto or solo work! I bought this from a friend who had it with her Super Balance Action (SBA) alto that she was the second owner of; it's likely that she may have had this as the original mouthpiece that was paired with her 1950s SBA.
LIGATURE and CAP: vintage single-screw ligature ($+100) and cap. I don't really plan to split these up.

Morgan ‘Jazz 6M’ Alto, 1980s Vintage, Ser#19,759 – 0.073″

$229.00 - A true, vintage Morgan mpc here. This is not the newer line of Morgans. (see the '6' over the 'M', and no "USA" on the body.) The sound is crisp and clear from from the Medium chamber and the #6 tip, which matches the intent of the current production models and this one is an elite mouthpiece in the case. More of the world should try a Morgan.
This model could also be labeled: Model "RMAJ"; "HR Jazz Alto".
Due the markings and the aging rubber, I will admit that I'm guessing, with mild research, that this is one of the earlier models. But hey, they're still making this one today, priced at $269.00.
TONE: Crisp, clear, yet warm. Ease in the response and a huge volume from this tip size.

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."

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."
