Brilhart ‘Tonalin 4*’ Alto, 1968-69 – 0.073″

$199.00 - 1968-69 no serial #. Tip at 0.073". I happen to know a little history from this mouthpiece's journey to be able to date it. Although no serial #, I happen to know what horn the fellow was playing. If I link these two eras, they both line up with about 1968-9. I will have Bob C fill in the tooth pad, and I inspected the tip. The tip arrived in nice condition but the table has some bumps from in the case. We'll make this play great! Original Tip was: 0.073". Reface stayed the same 0.073" with an adjustment to the beginning of the curve.
