Other: ‘No Name’ Baritone, Rubber, (RAC Reface) – 0.105″

$269.00 - A great large chamber mouthpiece made of hard rubber mouthpiece from the golden era. The original tip was refaced by Bob. Notice the lower walls cutout for comfort - cool! Other notes: There is a "France" marking on the side. And Bob expertly filled in a tooth groove. There is a small nick in the shank but its of no concern since the metal band is a great part of this era - it protects!
Baffle: it is more scooped out (lower) than a Conn Eagle. Very low baffle.

Selmer ‘S80 C*’ Baritone, Rubber – 0.079″ (Archived)

SOLD - A "must have" for concert band! A hard rubber mouthpiece that is a great addition to any player and especially those on a budget. Due to what I know of this mouthpiece, it came with my friend's sax from about 1984-86; aka, this is from the early era! Consider that new pricing is $240-270.00 ... come quick!
Marketed Description via WWBW:
"Precision crafted with a firm yet responsive feel. -- The Selmer S80 tenor saxophone mouthpiece is a popular design, and one of the biggest sellers in the marketplace. It is constructed from hard rod rubber, which lends it outstanding stability, accuracy and consistent facings. Whereas most mouthpieces have an arched cross-section in the chamber, the S80 is square. Students stepping up from a stock mouthpiece will experience a dramatic improvement in register changes and tonguing immediately in terms of tone and response."

Buescher ‘Whitehall’ Baritone, 1940s (WWS Reface) – 0.102″ (Archived)

SOLD - Custom Reface! + Large chamber! - A vintage hard rubber mouthpiece that is a copy of a vintage Buescher that I would approximate from the 1940s. This one had a large chamber and the original tip (needing some minor seal help) at 0.074" on arrival. Now it measures 0.102". it is an easy blower and has a big sound. It must be a unique blend because you seldom see a large chamber that remains with a high-rollover baffle. Large chamber & high baffle from custom reface. Item: WWSL4.7W6.12151.6-018

Some dings/dents; I'll replace a few lost screws to the bell guards, also had bell-to-body brace dented in (we have fixed many of these, so the sax will recover, however some scars may remain). It has fresh tan pads with Seamless domed, metal Pisoni resonators.
SOUND: mid core bark and evenness; not completely resonant like a Buescher/Martin, but not as timid either.

Buescher 1977 ‘Bundy – Selmer USA’ Eb Baritone, Low Bb #690,xxx

RENTAL/Available - This bari is from the good 70s era, still in the student line but great sound for the price. Serial #690xxx. lacquer body, nickel keys. It's basically the end of the Buescher line design with the Selmer takeover logo so it has that big bell like the "Buescher 400". Baritones always get beat up. This beast got a lot of dings and dents (mostly in the bell and bottom) and I will do my best to make them only minor ones. There will be a few that I can't reach on the neck and one medium on on the SelmerBundy690k9.jpg (3435958 bytes)SelmerBundy690k8.jpg (3562744 bytes) backside. Comes with neck and hard case--case in fair-to-poor condition.
I might end up putting some duct-tape reinforcement on the case. sorry, no mpc. I hope to keep this at $900 but i will have to report back and adjust price as necessary after the tuneups.
