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

MC Gregory ‘Gale Companion 4M’ Baritone, 1960s (RAC+WWS Reface) – 0.089″

$1,000.00 - On arrival, this looks to be a 100% Original tip at 0.079", sadly, the chip in the tip will require us to save it -- we all know this is totally worth saving. Bob Carpenter and I will tag-team this one to ensure that it meets both of our standards. It also arrived with a few nicks on a rail--we will treat this mouthpiece with extreme care and preservation; we will fix all necessary items. TIP, after repair: 0.089". Consider that the Hollywood models now demand $900-1500+, and these are credited with being nearly identical with a medium chamber.
Gerry Mulligan played on one, a 5M. .... and we're forced to raise our 4M size, to 5M, if you catch my drift.

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.
