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).
