Conn ‘Connstellation #3’ Soprano – 0.055″ (Archived)

here's a hard to find mpc from the late 60s, These were made with facings 1(closed) -- 6(open) but only three sizes for Soprano--2, 3, 4. This with the original tip at 0.055", tip and rails in great shape. there is one minor mark in the table(minor), the table shows the vertical striations. It has a large round chamber, made of a 'new' hard rubber material, plays nice with a centered, mellow tone. The script is in very good condition too. *shank = tight, like old bueschers. so it requires a thin neck cork. Item: WWS0.00.8151.1-0

Buescher ‘Pickle – Emblem’ Soprano, 1920s (RAC Reface) – 0.059″ (Archived)

Hard rubber mpc. Buescher from the 1920s. Bob Carpenter did work on this one in conjunction with myself, and now it's a Tip size @ 0.059 with 18mm facing length. This one did have a sneaky crack up the beak. Bob will glued that back together and I'll discount the mouthpiece. Comes with original silver ligature and cap. SOUND: sweet and warm. Not for cutting and being loud. Item: WWS0.00.1101.4-0-B50C10

Guardala ‘DG Studio’ Tenor, Ser#5432 – 0.112″ (Archived)

Yep. The Bomb right here. The handmade greatness, # 5432 with "DG" on the front. Original tip @ 0.112". although there is evidence of work in the baffle, I can almost guarantee that Sarge and Bob would never have touched it. That leads me to think that it happened in the handmade process to create the optimum smoothness because you can see how it ties in with the machine marks above and below it--silver plated. The sound is awesome; made to mimic King Curtis--Sarge's favorite--there is a high baffle and cutout. The Brecker handmade model screams! Very bright with strong power and depth, super free blowing. Comes with original ligature and a plastic DG cap. Item: SSP
Original Guardala memo: "STUDIO: This is the third brightest of the tenor models. It has tremendous volume with unexcelled resonance and a full and balance frequency response. This model incorporates a high baffle with a medium bore. the sound of this model is clearly demonstrated by Michael Brecker in the period 1979-1982 [brecker brothers band]. The studio can be used for all types of music a 'Studio Man' would encounter from Fusion to Swing, hence the name. This is our middle of the road mouthpiece

Otto Link ‘Super Tone Master – 6*S’ Tenor, FL-Double Band (WWS) – 0.099″ (Archived)

SOLD - A super RARE marked "6*S" - Full Package: Box, ligature and cap! ...on arrival, an improper tip measurement at 082", now a 0.099"!!! (or a Link 6**) It arrived with an improper curve and tip size. Between Bob Carpenter and myself doing a duos worth of the refacing work, this will be a superb player once we are satisfied. Under close inspection, we knew it was our duty to bring this baby to life! All repairs were sealed with silver & gold plating.
