Berg Larsen '110-2' Tenor,  Boat Tail, (RAC reface)- 0.105"

Price: $320.00

Compare at $700.00+ for unaltered examples

  • Make: Berg Larsen
  • Model:   Duckbill, Boat Tail, long body
  • Number: 110-2 (plays like 110-0-M)
  • Era:  1940s
  • Status: For Sale!
  • Ligature: Original, yes
  • Facing:  Bob Carpenter Reface
  • Tip-Size:  0.105"

Saved by Bob Carpenter (due to a poor refacer), this is one of the rarest of the rare Bergs and it comes with original brass ligature and cap! It was messed up arriving at an unplayable 0.080" but Bob brought it back up to 105! wow.  Considering that this mouthpiece was badly altered previously, I can't ask the +$700-1000 that these demand. I will price it at a comparable vintage Berg price.

SOUND: It play very bright! I would give it a label of "105-0-L" for custom measurements. The 105 being the tip, the "0" being the very bright baffle tone, and the "M" for the "medium" facing length.

***Note: The last 5 photos were added after small tip adjustments were made.
