One of the most loved hard rubber mouthpieces in an ultra-rare Tip size "E"! The soloists are very versatile and can cross many genres and the larger tip on this one will add some punch to the sound (that is something that most people complain about with a "C*" or "D" tip.
On arrival, the facing was in bad shape and needed a full reface. I did this with care and precision for an excellent seal and response. An E should have been about 0.083", but his now sits at 0.088".... or about an E*.
It is a little worn; however if it wasn't, the price would be even higher!
New bite pad installed.
