In bare brass finish, this mouthpiece plays big and warm. It arrived with poor refacing work that was not fun to play at 0.080" and I had to fix it. It has warm, vintage tone all the way - from the vintage era of the late 1930s and made in New York, a metal mouthpiece that is not loud and bright. These have a huge chamber, low baffle and a very reserved, warm tone. Serial number: L41. These were originally made with facings of #2 through 5*, and custom options. This was a Number #4*, or Medium-Large.
It arrived with the tip at 0.080", now a 0.099".
If you want the metal be silver and/or gold plated, that will require more $$$. But it can be sold and played as is for now also.
