Vintage hard rubber mouthpiece with good material; "B6" on the table (like a Woodwind Co.), "A2" on the side, It has small chamber into the throat of the mouthpiece, with a small step-ledge as it opens into the medium chamber. REFACED by Bob Carpenter to a 0.087". This plays super easy and has a nice Classical tone--partly muffled, resonant in the lower register. Baffle looks like Guardala 15%, or Berg 15% -- the slight bullet drop.

Mark this as "JAZZ MOUTHPIECE"
