Martin ‘[Committee III]’ Tenor, (WWS reface)- 0.076″

They are good players with a mild-vintage tone--a bit more nasal tone compared to #1 above due to the enhanced tip by me is a 0.076". Plastic mouthpiece with a Medium-Small chamber with flat sidewalls (slightly larger than Brilhart Ebolins). slight tooth marks. Comes with brass ligature.
