Looking for a budget mouthpiece? This might be the one. Plays pretty nice! even on a 2.5 reed. These normally demand $200-400.

Great Necks are so cool. They really have an 'it factor' compared to a few mouthpieces. They have a slightly different core tone and response. These are from the 1940s! It has the large font and serial # 55,969.

This one arrived as you see with the banding repairs (all too common) and the work was very well done, even preserving the "great neck" shank proof. *** This is actually what ALL Tonalins need. So this will help preserve the mouthpiece for the next 60yrs. It was refaced elsewhere but I did inspect it and did help it get finished up too.

New bite pad installed.
