Martin ‘[Committee III]’ Tenor, (WWS reface)- 0.076″

SALE $49.00 - I'm going to call these the [Committee III] model, because they came with that model of sax. Here is an 50s/60s Martin plastic mouthpiece (originally paired with "The Martin ____" horns) . They are good players with a mild-vintage tone--a bit more nasal tone compared to #1 above due to the enhanced tip by me is a 0.076". Plastic mouthpiece with a Medium-Small chamber with flat sidewalls (slightly larger than Brilhart Ebolins). slight tooth marks. Comes with brass ligature.

Martin ‘[Committee III]’ Tenor – 0.075″

$69.00 - I'm going to call these the [Committee III] model, because they came with that model of sax. Here is an early 50s/60s Martin plastic mouthpiece (originally paired with "The Martin ____" horns) . They are good players with a mild-vintage tone--a bit more nasal tone compared to #1 above due to the original tip is a 0.075". Plastic mouthpiece with a Medium-Small chamber with flat sidewalls (slightly larger than Brilhart Ebolins). mild tooth imprints. Comes with nickel ligature.

Couf ‘Artist 5*S’ Tenor, 1960s/70s Rubber

$125.00 - Here's another great, hard rubber mouthpiece. As Bob says: "these are the good rubber...they even taste like it". Ha, dare I say, he's right. you can taste the quality rubber. (I hope my cleaners can also act as as sealer to the rubber--to help the playing experience away from the taste of vintage rubber). It arrived with original tip at 0.084" but it will get a WWS Reface here. The air goes into straight side-walls, into a Medium round chamber (slightly smaller than my other Couf Artist), currently with no baffle (small rollover likely in reface). This has a semi-slimline look. I have had several of these that were really fun! This one has a slightly smaller medium chamber than Sarge's collection one (The "Artist"). This is the next generation with the [COUF] labeling--mostly worn off now.

Conn ‘Steelay “Standard” No. 3’ Tenor, 1930/50s rubber – 0.059″

$139.00 - Paired with Conns from 1935-56, these had several options. The "No.5" (of the 6 sizes) was, according to Conn Loyalist: "A short facing with Medium-wide tip opening. The most popular all-purpose mouthpiece. Fine for solo work. Gives Larger Volume than Lay No.2." I find this entertaining because the original tip measures 0.059". The mouthpiece is in excellent condition. It has a huge round chamber and deep rounded side walls. Plays surprisingly easy, tone is bold but tubby, slight bit nasally, but with bolder presence. sorry, no ligature(ASK).
