Looking for the vintage Coleman Hawkins sound? This is a good start! Warm, Vintage Tone all the way - from the vintage era of the early 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: R86.

It arrived with an original tip at 0.064", and I think it can reface to open it up more, but it may only get up to 0.080"(modern 5 or so). There is a chance it could go further and I can link Bob Carpenter into that.
