Vintage hard rubber from 1920s. It has the original tip size @ about 0.054". It will play nicer with a Lavoz Medium, and poorly with a 2.5 reed so stick to #3 or greater. It has a very large Chamber and that traditional 1920s stuffy tone, narrow beak. no ligature, but ask me. Refacing possible( +$). (remind me to finesse the current facing and seal.)
