STORY: Bought originally as a set in the 1930s. These came from a passed away client who played on a 1937 Conn 30M that he bought new. By the way, he kept his horn beautiful too! It SOLD. You can view it HERE. This mouthpiece is now being sold from the estate with the three pieces:

  1. Brilhart "Designed By...", Great Neck NY, Tenor mouthpiece; #3 - original tip, original facing. Measures 0.079". Serial #2829
    Tip size marker: #3 - original tip, original facing. Measures 0.079". Serial #2829 in the smaller font (version 1).
  2. Arnold Brilhart "A.B. Ligature" with the 'ST' marking for 'Streamline' tenor model.
    Fully functioning, no problems. Minor wear from age.
  3. Matching "Arnold Brilhart" Clear Mouthpiece Cap that fits this Streamline version. It will not fit a larger/standard tenor mouthpiece.

Additional Notes:

This is the rare streamline version, and Version 1 at that, of this model. Version 1 had small font in the serial number, like this one. Also, the serial number dating is not so accurately know on the "Designed by..." models as this one is outside the range that Theo Wanne has documented and shared (#7400-8500 for hard rubber, but these fit within the #ranges for the Tonalin & Ebolin models. Perhaps that was the method from Brilhart.).

Another bit of research to add on these, is that Theo's site claims that the "Great Neck NY" was not on the shank, however, this mouthpiece does have that. So I do suspect that these models had some love from Mr Brilhart himself and perhaps there are some crossover details between the two versions. At this time, Theo and I are reviewing this information.
