Vintage Selmer mouthpiece - Art Deco logo, fluted side walls, slide on ligature and cap set! It is all in good condition with silver plating intact. The chamber is round and medium-small-medium as was standard on this model.

The original B tip size is rather small by today's uses. So you'll want a stiffer reed to bring this to life. Definitely a #3 or higher reed. There is some extra material in the tip, should someone choose to reface this.

TONE: It is a very clean and can be used for jazz or solo work. I would also suggest that this tip size allows it to be used for many other (warmer, mellower) genres.
