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

Conn ‘look-alike’ Baritone, 1920s/30s (RAC reface)- 0.112″

$299.00 - SOUND: It has bite & depth. It's wild; like Treble and Bass, not heavy in the Mids. We got it with its original tip and Bob Carpenter opened it up to a .110". It's a big tip with some edgy sounds. The included ligature isn't a perfect fit, but better than nothing. I found that different reed brands need an extra spacer--i glued some cork on the ligature to help (ask me if I have another to upgrade this fitting). Medium-medium/small, round chamber. Not a vintage large chamber.
