Other: ‘York’ Soprano, Rubber, Large Chamber (WWS Reface) – 0.056″

SOLD - Large Chamber - Recommended for vintage sopranos! Rubber, arrived with an original tip that was too closed to enjoy.  LARGE CHAMBER, and a slight rollover baffle from the reface. The look of the mouthpiece reminds me of some older Buescher 'pickles' with the ring-lip at the shank; but I am not certain on that. The photos are prior to the finished reface and you are free to help guide to with how much baffle you'd like left in there.

Otto Link ‘Tone Master – 5’ Tenor, 1940s (WWS Reface) – 0.085″ (Archived)

SOLD - A #5 Tone Master tenor mouthpiece with original ligature - both at about 15% original plating on arrival. This mouthpiece has serial # K72 on it. It arrived with the tip at the original 0.080" tip size and the tip and rails are in good shape but they were uneven on one side. This was addressed in a reface and now the tip sits at 0.085".
TONE: Known for huge tone/resonance, "vintage smoke", Dexter Gordon all day. Evenness and sultry. These mouthpieces are known for ....vintage greatness.

Other: Connetable ‘Metallic – Benny Carter #5’ Alto, (RAC Reface)- 0.072″

SOLD - A huge, large chamber mouthpiece that has a design that reminds me of an Otto Link Master model (plus, the lig has a thick read plate too). It was originally silver plated, as you can see, and I've opted to leave the plating original for now. You are free to request some silver plating. Shank markings: "3 Rue Duperre" ... which may have been the place of manufacturing! ... it is currently an address in Paris that is about 2.5 miles NE of the Eiffel Tower.
Refaced by Expert refacer Bob Carpenter, and final finishing work precision done by Chadd here at WWS. It is a unusually neat mouthpiece. We were glad to save it.
A very easy blower, even with the tip size. It plays with a MEDIUM-warm tone quality, mostly dark with the ability to push it over the top.
Please inquire for additional information.
Item: WWS00.00.11111.7-BC40
