Other: Connetable ‘Metallic – Benny Carter #5’ Alto, (RAC Reface)- 0.072″

$199.00 - A huge, large chamber mouthpiece that has a design that reminds me of an Otto Link Master model (plus, the lig has a thick read plate too). It was originally silver plated, as you can see, and I've opted to leave the plating original for now. You are free to request some silver plating. Shank markings: "3 Rue Duperre" ... which may have been the place of manufacturing! ... it is currently an address in Paris that is about 2.5 miles NE of the Eiffel Tower.
Refaced by Expert refacer Bob Carpenter, and final finishing work precision done by Chadd here at WWS. It is a unusually neat mouthpiece. We were glad to save it.
A very easy blower, even with the tip size. It plays with a MEDIUM-warm tone quality, mostly dark with the ability to push it over the top.
Please inquire for additional information.

Berg Larsen ‘120-2-SMS – SELECT’ Tenor, 1970-80s Rubber – 0.115″

$355.00 - A super rare, 'SELECT' model Berg Larsen mouthpiece from the 1970s/80s. It has a straight signature, very offset SMS marks, the 'Select' label on the shank, bullet chamber and horizontal table markings.
NOTE: I can now say that even a "Select" mouthpiece can need repair. This is one of those. The table marks show that it is 10)% original still, yet some how the table is not level. I bet that's why I ended up with it - It's time to ignite it's true potential!
REFACING: On arrival the tip is measuring 0.108-113" due to an unlevel table. WWS will reface this mouthpiece to a superb playing facing. I will however wait for a short time to allow you to request the perfect tip size for you. The correct 're-sizing' should set this at 0.115".
SOUND: C'mon, it's a Berg 120! Expect a big, robust, yet clear, the #2 baffle helps leave some warmth in this robust core tone. It reminds me of my frequent flyer(110-2-SMS).

Yamaha ‘YSS-L1’ Soprano, 1970s – 0.045″

$169.00 - A rare Yamaha soprano mouthpiece made of hard rubber or blended composite (it definitely has some rubber). Straight baffle, straight side walls into a very small round chamber. This one is in great condition and also has a thin front tip rail --that's a good thing and not all had that.
This mouthpiece is to a  Yamaha 61 (purple logo) what the Selmer S-80 became to Selmer. It was paired with the pro Yamahas.
With original, grooved ligature! (and a Selmer cap. PS-I will clean the green on the cap up for you.)

Selmer ‘”JAZZ” E’ Tenor, late 1950s Silver Plated – 0.085″

$325.00 - These are neat mouthpieces from 1955+(short shank). They have good focus with a mid, core tone and easy response. It's a metal mouthpiece without a cutting, bright tone - just a bit more kick than a rubber version. There is a little natural wear on the table and for now I left it all 100% original. If you want it further inspected and sealed with plating, that can be discussed.
Comes with a functioning, non-Selmer ligature.

Other: ‘No Name’ Soprano, Rubber – 0.057″

SOLD/ON TRIAL - $139.00 - Played in tune on Buescher TrueTone! 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 mpcs; but I am not certain on that.
Now refaced to about 0.057", I am happy to admit that I found this mouthpiece to be a great pair for Buescher True Tone Sopranos! = improved intonation!
