Another rare mouthpiece listed, it was named after the saxophonist in the Whiteman Orchestra of the 30s and 40s. Terrific material and good classic design...very similar to "The Woodwind Co." models... Large chamber makes for a big vintage sound. But also more suitable for Concert Bands and jazz alike. Bob Carpenter just opened this one up to a easy blowing 0.090" with a 21mm facing length and inscribed the his "RAC 90-21" on the table(sign of Bob's heartfelt workmanship again). The crystallized yellow band IS original! sorry, no ligature.
This has a great mellowness to the tone and blows Outstandingly easy! I REALLY wanted to keep this one when I got it back from Bob. It plays so much like my Tonalin 5 (I use on most sound files) that it must be an Alto player's delight at that 0.090" tip. = plays like butter!
