  • Alto Meyer Hard Rubber BB Screws Brilhart Reproduction 3-Band Ligature Saxophone Selmer Vandoren

    $ 165

    For hard rubber alto saxophone mouthpieces like Meyer Bros, GS New York, Selmer Soloist, Vandoren Jumbo Java and all Brilharts. This ligature is a true reproduction of the Brilhart 3-Band Ligature: from the alloy of brass to the feel of the screws, it is exactly the same as the vintage Brilhart ligature. Same dimensions, same weight, same feel, same playing response. It’s like going back in time to buy one when they were first made! So for those of you who have always wanted this time-tested style of ligature, but have found them prohibitively expensive, now perhaps getting one is within reach.

  • Alto Meyer Hard Rubber Brilhart Reproduction 3-Band Ligature Saxophone Selmer Vandoren

    $ 165

    This ligature fits almost all hard rubber alto saxophone mouthpieces, like Meyer Bros, GS New York, Selmer Soloist, Vandoren Jumbo Java, all brands of Meyer copies, Ted Klum Acoustimax and New York model, all Brilharts etc. There’s a reason why the vintage Brilhart 3-Band ligatures have been singled out by the market (players) as by far the most desirable vintage ligatures. They are great ligatures. But there will never be enough vintage Brilhart ligatures to meet the high demand for this style of ligature. Thankfully, there is now a high-quality, hand made reproduction available to meet this demand. These are made by a small company in South Korea that cares about getting saxophone equipment right. These ligatures get rave reviews by the people who buy them. I don’t want to make huge claims for a ligature, but I will say that people tend to LOVE them. They’re beautiful, simple, and easy to use, and they sound great.

  • Alto Beechler Bellite Metal Brilhart Reproduction 3-Band Ligature Echo Master

    $ 165

    This ligature fits thin metal alto saxophone mouthpieces like Beechler Bellite and other very slim body metal alto mouthpieces, like Brilhart levelaire, and some modern pieces like Guardala handmade. That’s ALL that this ligature fits. This is a listing for the ligature only, not a mouthpiece. 

    For Dukoff Miami alto, please buy the ‘soprano’ ligature here, because the soprano ligature fits Miami Dukoff metal alto mouthpieces *perfectly*. The soprano ligature also fits metal Otto Link alto mouthpieces very nicely.

    Beechler Bellite 1980’s Table 7 Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece Gerald Albright MPC609

    $ 1,150

    This is one of the most desirable smooth jazz alto mouthpieces ever. A few years ago, these were almost double the asking price, as odd as that may seem. Gerald Albright, Eric Marienthal, and Dave Koz made these desirable. I sell the Echomaster ligature to fit them as well. The best ones are the early ones like this, and they were never made in large quantities in the 80’s and early 90’s. The modern ones are terrible in comparison. If you want to have that crisp, bright, projecting smooth jazz alto sound that really lives in a reverb-heavy natural habitat, this is for you. It has straight sidewalls, small chamber, long gradual rollover baffle, tip opening measures 0.092″.

    The markings seem to be buffed out but looks like a 120 2 or 3 chamber. Tip opening measures 0.119″. Has a huge sound and very free blowing if you have ginormous lungs and want to rip through a big band lead tenor book this might be your mouthpiece. It’s original facing, and has been played a lot, because it’s a phenomenal player.

This piece is moderately bright and has great projection and low resistance, but in an effortless way that makes it much easier to play than a modern high baffle piece. It’s not a paint peeler but stays warm with plenty of projection. Great piece!

  • Brilhart ARB Great Neck Original 3* (.081 modern 5) “Hard Rubber” Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC591

    $ 275

    Rare hard rubber ARB example. These are usually plastic. This is Brilhart after Arnold Brilhart sold his name as a brand and switched to ARB. Slightly curved sidewalls, medium chamber, not much baffle. High resistance but not in a bad way, moderate tone not too dark and not too bright. This would make a good classic big band mouthpiece. Tip opening measures 0.081″.

  • Brilhart Designed by Arnold Brilhart Great Neck Ebolin 4* Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC592

    $ 475

    Hard to find, early example of a Brilhart. This would be one of his first pieces, before the Ebolin name, when they just said ‘Designed by’ and had the Great Neck NY stamp on the shank. If you like Brilharts, you may want to add this to your collection. It’s a rarity in great shape. Straight sidewalls, medium tall-narrow chamber, subtle rollover baffle. This piece plays great with medium-low resistance and very flexible tone, reminiscent of a good Otto Link but a little warmer. Tip opening measures 0.086″, but plays a bit bigger.

    Brilhart designed by metal 6* Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece F58

    $ 150

    Guardala Studio like mouthpiece for 90+% less. Haha. Straight sidewalls, medium chamber after a high stepped baffle. Tip opening measures 0.096″. Not as bright as a modern high stepped baffle, more similar to Berg Larsen in that it has good projection while maintaining a dark lush tone. The unusual beak shape takes some getting used to, but it is interesting. The thick tip and low angle make the bite plate almost parallel to the reed.

  • Brilhart Early “Designed By” Tonalin and BB ligature and cap – fantastic! Use with alto? MPC612

    $ 1,350

    So of the two parts of this sale, the ligature is actually worth more than the mouthpiece, and if they don’t sell together quickly, I’ll split them up. The ligature that comes with the streamline tenor is the desirable version that fits hard rubber ALTO mouthpieces (The streamline idea is that your tenor mouthpiece is the size of a normal alto mouthpiece.) So you get a ligature and cap that typically sells for the entire asking price not including the tenor mouthpiece that is also rare, collectible, and interesting in its own right. The mouthpiece is a rare, early Brilhart ‘Designed By’ Tonalin tenor mouthpiece with original facing measuring .083, or about a 5* tip. It is in excellent condition and plays well with a harder reed with a warm, complex tone. Lots of great players played mouthpieces like this, including Gene Ammons and Tex Benake. I love the Tonalin and may eventually do a GS Mouthpieces copy of my favorite one.

    Brilhart Hard Rubber 7* Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece EG Reface Excellent MPC560

    $ 750

    This Hard Rubber Brilhart is a lovely (and highly-coveted) vintage jazz mouthpiece that has a lot more in common with a Link Slant signature Tone Edge or Dukoff Supersonic than with other Brilharts. One of the best vintage tenor mouthpieces ever, bar none. This particular one comes from a small collection of the best vintage Brilharts amassed by a friend of Arnold Brilhart who has now retired from playing tenor. It has scooped sidewalls and large round chamber, rollover baffle, and the tip has just been opened to 0.105″ by Erik Greiffenhagen. The facing is perfect, and responds effortlessly in all registers, with a balanced, comfortable feel. Erik is widely-recognized as one of the best mouthpiece refacers around today. He uses the best authentic vintage curves for his facings, so this piece is just like it would have been if it were originally opened to a 7*. (All mouthpieces started at 0.0″ tip.) This is truly ‘one of the good ones’ and it’s priced very reasonably for all that.

    This mouthpiece is SOLD, but to find mouthpieces in stock, please go to the following link: https://www.getasax.com/mouthpieces/

     

    Beautiful almost new example of a rare Streamline Brilhart Ebolin alto mouthpiece. Stamped 3*, it measures like a Meyer 5 tip at .074″ on the original facing. This is often the case with Brilharts, where you only know the tip by measuring.

    This mouthpiece plays great with a beautiful warmth and fullness that also does not lack projection. Brilharts like this are among my favorite vintage alto mouthpieces (along with Meyer and MC Gregory).

    If you happen to want the rare and collectible original Brilhart BB screws streamline alto ligature and cap, I have one in my collection that fits this mouthpiece that I would be open to selling.

    Brilhart Tonalin 3* (Modern 4) in box Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC614

    $ 375

    Here’s a beautiful example of an original facing Brilhart Tonalin alto saxophone mouthpiece in excellent condition. The tonalin is warm and full sounding, with less buzz than a Meyer and more of a classic big band tone. It features straight sidewalls, narrow-tall chamber, very slight rollover baffle. Tip opening measures 0.068″, so about the same as a Meyer 4 tip. It could easily be opened to a 5+ if you so choose. This piece has nice moderate resistance and is less bright than some other Brilharts.

Very subtle rollover baffle. This piece is an amazing player. Extremely flexible tone, low resistance with no hint of bright thin buzziness that some modern Brilharts have. Tip opening measures 0.106″.

Great classic big band tone. Moderate projection and medium resistance. It works well, but watch out for the major crack in the shank. Should be clamped before extensive use.

  • Brilhart Vintage Alto Ligature and Cap for Hard Rubber Alto Mouthpieces: Selmer, Meyer etc. MPC 610

    I guess Kenny Garrett has made these popular more than anyone else. These vintage Brilhart 3 band alto saxophone ligatures are by far the most desirable vintage ligatures. This one is in very good condition and also comes with its original Brilhart mouthpiece cap as well. The EchoMaster ligatures offer you the same design brand new for a fraction of the cost, but if you want the vintage original, this is it.

    Buescher Top Hat and Cane Tenor Original Silver Plate Super Rare 356387

    $ 6,500

    This is a 1955 Buescher Top Hat and Cane tenor saxophone in original silver plate finish. It’s hard to overemphasize how rare the tenors are in original silver plate. I have seen three original silver Top hat and cane altos, and one replated silver tenor that started as lacquer. But this is the only original silver one I’ve ever seen! There are probably some others out there, but I doubt that there are very many.

    This rare beast also just got a complete overhaul done, and it has all new pads and is totally ready to go for the long-term, right out of the case. You’d be hard pressed to find a nicer example of a Buescher Top Hat and Cane tenor anywhere! I’ve seen a few nice original lacquer examples in recent years, and they sold for basically this price minus the overhaul cost, which means you’re getting the rare silver plate finish for not much extra money compared to a really clean original lacquer one. Tyler did a video on this horn that you should watch with headphones for the best sense of the sound. To me, it plays with a warm, round tone, with lots of power and excellent intonation. These horns are just REALLY FUN to play. That’s the main reason to buy one. It’s great for almost any type of music from classical to rock. The Top Hat tenors work well with even really bright, high baffle tenor pieces, because the big, warm vintage tone can support that bright mouthpiece without getting brittle. The low register is effortless, as is the altissimo. This is a rare opportunity to add this horn to your collection that is both a top player, and very collectible at the same time. It’s one of the most beautiful vintage saxophones as well.

    Buescher True Tone Alto Saxophone 200008 Original Silver Plate Good Condition

    The Buescher True Tone alto saxophones are excellent instruments for a wide range of playing. They have great intonation, and a beautiful, warm, round tone that works great for classical alto or concert band, or any setting where you want to have a big, beautiful, ‘sweet’ alto saxophone sound. This example comes from a collector who sold it to me together with a few other choice True Tones. It has old pads, so it needs an overhaul. As such, I have it priced really low for what you get. This horn should be amazingly beautiful when polished up and repadded, and it will be a reliably great player for many many more years to come. I love the rose gold wash inside the bell, and the original silver plate is also in quite good condition. This is a great serial range for a true tone. Many of my favorite playing Bueschers have been around 180-220k serial.

    Buescher True Tone C Soprano Original Silver Very Good Condition 140769

    $ 1,500

    People keep emailing me asking ‘Is this really a C soprano?’ and I say, “Yes, it really is!” So if you were wondering, then now you know. It has old pads, so you will need to budget for an overhaul, or at least for some significant pad work for it to play its best. I replaced the case foam since these pictures were taken, and the case now keeps it nice and safe for shipping purposes. This horn is in quite good condition and with a good overhaul and gentle hand polish it will look like a new saxophone! The ‘True’ in True Tone refers to pitch accuracy, and it’s actually correct. These horns tend to tune really nicely. If you don’t have a C soprano mouthpiece, the best option is the modern Yamaha 4C or 5C soprano piece for Bb soprano. It has the right dimensions to tune well on this horn, and it’s also cheap and easy to play. I could throw one in with the horn for free if you want. A C soprano is fun because you don’t have to transpose. Whether that means playing at church, or just reading along with a piano at home, it’s a beautiful sounding sax that isn’t too expensive, and is professional quality.

    This is a nice old hard rubber clarinet mouthpiece measuring .050″ (1.27 mm).

I’m not an expert on clarinet mouthpieces. Let me know if you know more about it. It plays well with a warm, rich tone and plenty of power.

    $ 2,100

    This is a nice original lacquer Buffet S1 alto in very good physical condition. The pads are older, but it hasn’t been played a ton so you could probably get it into pretty good playing condition without overhauling it. I overhaul horns by default, so I would say tune it up and play it for a while while you save up for an overhaul, and then you can get the total experience of a horn that feels almost new. This has the full S1 keywork with the excellent low C Eb mechanism and the very comfortable LH pinky keys as well. The intonation is great. The tone is big and wide and operatic – French, refined, not too bright, not too dark. I really like these. Original case and case cover are still in great shape as well. The only real lacquer wear is on the back of the bow, which I think is from the sax being played mostly seated in a chair where the lacquer must have touched the chair in that spot only. Sometimes I get horns in that have individual finger marks in certain places in the lacquer from always being picked up the same way. Anyway, I don’t see any evidence of significant damage or significant past repairs either. It’s a nice, clean example priced low enough to be a great deal even after you spend some money on pads.

  • Buffet Super Dynaction Alto 16883 Original Lacquer Good Condition Old Pads

    $ 1,250

    Buffet Super Dynaction alto saxophone with original lacquer. This alto came from a collector who favored Buffet saxophones, and it is priced to sell, in good condition. It has had some dings removed, and the pads are old, but you’ll get an excellent pro alto for a bargain price if you get this and get it overhauled. It has the ‘sparkle’ lacquer that the earlier serial Buffet Super Dynaction saxophones have. The earlier ones like this also play darker, and look great too. The original case comes with it. They’re one of the few saxophones along with the Mark VI and the Couf Superba 1 that have a complex, interesting, vintage tone, but keywork that feels more or less modern under the fingers. Intonation is also typically quite good, as you might expect from Buffet Crampon Paris.

The tone is big, wide, medium between bright and dark and ‘operatic’ with a ton of power. The intonation is excellent as well. If you want to get a Buffet Super Dynaction that is as nice as they come, this is the one to get. They are still priced amazingly affordably. Try buying one this nice and getting it overhauled well for less money, and it will be very hard to do.

    This is a beautiful original lacquer pre-war Conn 6M Alto saxophone in excellent condition with the rare and desirable ‘NY’ Neck. I’m not sure why it is called that, but this means the neck without microtuner and with the octave key going over the top and around the tenon in a large loop. This is only the second one I have seen that still had its ‘sombrero’ shaped neck octave key protecting tool in the case. This goes in the neck tenon to keep the loop of the octave key in perfect shape. This 6M has original pads from 1938 and needs an overhaul, but it is priced very low for what you get. These are among the best playing alto saxophones of all time. I play a Conn very much like this myself, and it blows the walls down while also tuning better than almost any other saxophone at the same time. It’s fantastic.

  • Conn New Wonder 1 Alto Burnished Gold Stunning Portrait Engraved Old Pads 139214

    $ 1,500

    Gorgeous original gold plated Conn New Wonder 1 alto with portrait and everything. This alto is made of brass, but it has as thick layer of gold plate over a layer of silver plate over the brass. Conn gave lots of special attention and time to these portrait engraved ‘burnished’ gold examples, and this is a beautiful one that made it through its first 100 years to still be in excellent condition today. These are extremely fun altos to play, with a big, wide, velvety, room-filling tone that is full of warmth and sweetness. If you want an alto that is really lyrical and pleasant to listen to, the New Wonder 1 and 2 are probably at the top of the list. What you sacrifice is modern keywork – this has 1920’s ergonomics, so don’t expect to burn it up on this. The intonation is good but flexible. You can bend notes around, so if you’re a ‘biter’ with way too tight of an embouchure, you will have more trouble than if you play with a relaxed or fairly even embouchure. This one has old pads and needs a repad, but hey- it’s gorgeous, in good condition, and burnished gold with extra engraving, so you’re getting a great deal on a work of art that is also very usable as a modern instrument today.

  • Conn New Wonder II Soprano Original Gold Plate Overhauled with Mods Front F 199071

    $ 2,650

    This is a gold plated (not lacquered but actual gold plate finish) vintage Conn New Wonder II soprano saxophone in excellent condition. It has a recent full overhaul, meaning all new pads, corks, felts, oil, and a lot of labor spent tuning it up and setting everything up to top playing condition. That’s a big plus on this horn. It also got a front F key added custom as part of the overhaul. The tone is the main reason to buy a vintage Conn. It has a wide, powerful, medium dark tone that loves a large chamber mouthpiece and sounds completely different from the oboe-like modern soprano sound. It’s more saxophone-like than a modern horn. You’d be hard-pressed to find a warmer, more pleasant soprano to play, or a more beautiful soprano for a better price. Not to mention the gold plate, the fancy engraving, and the added front F. It’s a great deal! Only one available!

  • Conn New Wonder II Transitional Alto Saxophone Original Silver Old Pads 237954

    $ 800

    This late Conn New Wonder II alto sax is in very good original condition, and just needs a quality overhaul to be an excellent player. It’s original silver plate, and it will shine up and look amazing with a cleaning and polishing job put into it. These late New Wonder II’s start to be called transitional when they get their first 6M-anticipating feature: the raised side E key touch. Besides that, this is pretty much a New Wonder II, though Conn also starts to experiment with the neck around this serial, to improve intonation and give slightly more focus to the sound (still very wide and spread). When overhauled nicely, these altos are unmatched for the amount that they feel alive in your hands. They vibrate and respond so amazingly well. I never want to put the horn down!

    This is one of Aubra Graves’s Conn tenors that he used on his super popular Youtube videos. It’s from his estate, and it needs a full restoration to play its best again. Conns are extremely well made instruments, and the 251k serial range is just about the best sounding version they ever made. But it will be an extensive overhaul, as the horn is pretty rough at the moment. Have your repairperson take a look at photos before you buy it. That said, it’s priced great and will be a fantastic horn when it’s done. These are SO fun to play, and you can also be part of the Aubra fan club with it. Pop on a bright mouthpiece like a Berg metal, add some reverb to the mix and ‘go practice’ and you can get that fat-but-bright jazz tenor sound on this with ease.

  • Conn NW1/II Sopranino Orig Silver Plate Fresh Bill Singer Overhaul 147236

    $ 4,500
  • Conn NWII Soprano Original Silver Plate 160380

    $ 950

    Nice, clean old pads Conn New Wonder II soprano in original silver plate. This horn has lacquer over the silver, which I have seen on some other old Conn saxophones from this period, so it may be original lacquer over silver. You could easily strip the lacquer and it would look brand new when overhauled and hand polished. These horns have a big, wide, warm, velvety tone and flexible-but-good intonation with a large chamber soprano mouthpiece. Link Tone Edge works well, for example. This one is a solid example that shouldn’t be too difficult of an overhaul, and that still plays on the existing pads (makes saxophone noises – doesn’t play well, but you can get an idea).

    Unlacquered 1930 Conn transitional tenor which has had modern keywork painstakingly fit to the old body tube. This is my favorite vintage of Conn for tone. If you’ve ever wanted a Conn tone without sacrificing key feel to play the 30’s keywork, this is one of those rare chances to do it. The horn is also gorgeous. I like that they picked a really clean, beautiful example to use as the shell for the overhaul.

    Keywork was fitted by a shop in Canada, and then the horn was thoroughly setup (basically overhauled ~$1650) and perfected by Aaron Barnard in Iowa. It plays GREAT!

    Dukoff Hollywood Metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece 7* Refaced from 5* Great! MPC610

    $ 1,450

    This is a beautiful vintage Dukoff Hollywood from my personal collection. It’s fat and powerful, but on the darker side, with a mild rollover baffle and medium-large chamber. This is the one piece version with higher floor but less rollover baffle. It plays great, with more projection than average since it was opened up. This was originally a 5* and was opened to a 7*, measuring .105″. I’m not sure who did the work, as it is unsigned, but from how clean and tidy it is, I’m guessing either Theo or maybe Jon Van Wie, both of whom didn’t always sign their pieces back in the day. That tip and baffle work is top-notch. This is a world-class tenor piece that should make someone very happy.

  • Dukoff Miami Orig. Large Chamber LD6 .098″ metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC588

    $ 575

    Slightly curved sidewalls, medium-large chamber, long rollover baffle. If you love the attack and projection of a Super Power Chamber but want a little beefier tone this might be the piece for you. I think Dukoff designed this to be like a Hollywood on steroids. It is still bright, but not glass shattering. Very free blowing. Tip opening measures 0.098″.

    Dukoff Miami SPC D5 (modern 6) Silverite Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC606

    $ 350

    This Miami Dukoff D5 alto saxophone mouthpiece measures .076, so like a Meyer 6 tip. The rails have some dings in them, but it still plays fine. I could clean it up pre-sale. Up to you. If you want a bright, cutting, smooth jazz/commercial alto sound, this will do the trick. I’m trying to make it through the description without mentioning a certain player. Looks like I succeeded. Straight sidewalls, small-medium chamber, and high stepped baffle, tip opening measures 0.076″. The super power chamber is truth in advertising. Awesome projection, low resistance, bright tone.

    Dukoff Miami Super Power Chamber D5* plastic Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC575

    $ 350

    Small chamber, straight sidewalls, stepped baffle. This piece is easier to play sweetly at low volume than the typical metal body and larger tip openings found in this chamber and baffle configuration, but can still scream at higher volumes. A nice flexible piece for R&B or smooth playing. Tip opening measures 0.067″.

  • Dukoff Miami Super Power Chamber M7 metal Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC589

    $ 500

    Straight sidewalls, medium chamber, and a unique baffle that is similar to a high stepped baffle but with a large rollover-like radius where the step would be. Tonally this retains the projection and attack of a high baffle but is maybe slightly darker than a super-bright SPC “D” chamber. Tip opening measures 0.105″.

  • Dukoff Miami Super Power Chamber M7 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC594

    $ 400

    Straight sidewalls, medium chamber, and a high baffle with a large radius rollover at the entrance to the chamber. You don’t see the Miami M chamber that often. Those ligature scratches could be buffed off if you want. This is a very free-blowing piece with great projection. It is bright, but not paint peeling bright like the more common D7 chamber. I would consider this if you like your Link STM but want something that cuts through an amplified mix a little easier. Tip opening measures a comfortable 0.103″.

  • EchoMaster Baritone Ligature LARGE For Selmer, Vandoren, Yanagisawa, Gale and Similar Mouthpieces

    $ 165

    EchoMaster Baritone Saxophone Ligature for larger bodied baritone saxophone mouthpieces. This is what Brilhart might have made if they had ever made their incredibly popular BB screws ligature for baritone saxophone, instead of just for alto and tenor. Thanks to EchoMaster, now you can play one of these on your baritone mouthpieces too! There are two sizes that fit baritone mouthpieces, so check the photos. I tried this on lots of baritone mouthpieces to see what kinds of them it fits, and I took lots of photos showing fit. Check the slim body baritone ligature listing as well, to see if your mouthpiece falls into that category instead, and email me at [email protected] if you are not sure. This ligature is stamped BT on the side, and it fits larger body mouthpieces. However, it does not fit really large vintage baritone mouthpieces from the 1920’s like the old Conn Eagle, or vintage Lelandais, Martin, Buescher etc. If you have a vintage hard rubber Otto Link, here are a few notes on fit. The very oldest Otto Link Slant Tone Edge like this has a huge body almost like a bass sax mouthpiece, and will not fit this ligature. The Slant immediately after, like this, will fit this ligature. And the modern Tone Edge also fits this ligature, unless it is really slim like a Meyer, in which case you need the Slim body baritone ligature instead.

  • EchoMaster Baritone Ligature Slim, Mouthpieces For Berg Larsen, RPC, Meyer and Similar Hard Rubber

    $ 165

    EchoMaster Brilhart style ligatures for BARITONE Saxophone now available! If you’re here, you probably know about these ligatures already, but basically, these are an extremely good reproduction of the most desirable vintage ligature that was made by Brilhart in the 50’s and 60’s. This is a special new product sized for baritone saxophone mouthpieces, which Brilhart never made.

    I’ve been holding off listing these for a while, because I wanted to figure out which ligature fits which types of mouthpieces. Bari mouthpieces have a lot more variation in diameter than alto or tenor mouthpieces do. The LARGE (BT-stamped) ligature, listed separately at this link, fits Selmer (S80 and Soloist), Otto Link Tone Edge, Gale / MC Gregory, Vandoren, Yanagisawa hard rubber, Rousseau classical and similar.

    The SLIM size ligature listed in this listing (T-stamped) fits RPC, Berg Larsen Hard Rubber, Rousseau Jazz, Rico Metallite, Meyer, and other slim baritone saxophone mouthpieces. It also fits most hard rubber tenor saxophone mouthpieces, which could be handy for some people.Soon, I will add a listing for metal Otto Link baritone mouthpieces soon, but this is the ligature that fits metal link bari pieces, and a lot of other similar bari pieces, if you’re curious.

    GS Mark II Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece Freddie Gregory Super Deluxe Mark II Copy

    This piece is clean, balanced, effortless to play, including low register and altissimo, with a medium chamber and a moderate baffle that gives it moderate brightness without getting brittle or nasal. It’s a great all-purpose tenor mouthpiece with a modern sound.

    *Demo videos and detailed info below with the GS Mark II on a Selmer Mark VI, Conn 30M, and King Super 20. 

    The GS Mark II tenor saxophone mouthpiece is an extremely precise copy of my favorite Freddie Gregory Super Deluxe Mark II tenor mouthpiece.

    What is this?

    Many players may not know much about Freddie Gregory’s Super Deluxe mouthpieces. That’s not a big surprise, as Freddie did not make that many of them, and the ones he did make are mostly still in the hands of their original owners. The few that have come up for sale over the last 5 years that I’ve seen have been priced way out of the reach of most players– typically $2400-$4000– for a mouthpiece! Which is nuts, but those who know these mouthpieces REALLY seem to be willing to pay to get one. And sadly, since Freddie died ten years ago, no more of these are available.

    The Super Deluxe model was entirely designed and made by Freddie. It was sold in four variations on the same design: Mark I, Mark II, Mark III, and Mark IV. They all have a good amount of projection, but the Mark I is darkest and the Mark IV is brightest.

    The Mark II is bright and projecting but not too bright, and it seems to be one of the most popular ones of these. The chamber is medium rather than large, which adds to the projection. The shank is long, so you can pull out on vintage horns. The Mark II sounds great on Selmers and on modern tenors like Yamaha and P Mauriat. It gives them a lot of extra character and complexity.

    The Mark II is nothing like an Otto Link, so if you’re wanting a Link-on-steriods or whatever, checkout the upcoming GS SUPERSONIC, which does just that sort of thing. The Mark II is a different beast, all its own thing.

    And for only $199 including hand facing, I hope that lots of players can enjoy this amazing and rare mouthpiece! It’s hard to beat.

  • GS NEW YORK Alto

    GS NEW YORK Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece – The Best Meyer

    $ 199

    GS NEW YORK Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece Meyer Bros NY Replica

    A great New York Meyer alto mouthpiece just sparkles. The response is clean, warm, and effortlessly free blowing, but centered and with an elusive extra magic to it – even compared to any other version of Meyer.

    The GS NEW YORK is an extremely precise copy of what I think is the best Meyer Bros NY I’ve played. I’ve been collecting NY Meyer alto pieces since I started GetASax, and I just LOVE this particular one.

    I loved it so much, that I spent about a year figuring out how to make an extremely precise copy of it that played with the same magic in each tip opening.

    The GS New York delivers on that goal! People just love to play this mouthpiece. The reviews and emails I receive have been so encouraging to keep this going long-term.

    How does it play? It’s slightly brighter than some NY Meyers, and a little warmer than a NYUSA. Balanced and easy low register and altissimo. Compared to a typical modern Meyer the GS NY will be much more free blowing, less resistant, and will have better projection and sparkle. You can get a Cannonball / Phil Woods vibe going with less effort than on a typical modern Meyer for sure.

    You won’t pick a bad tip opening. They’re all great. People buy the 5 (.072″) , 6 (.076″), and 7 (.080″) tips about equally often.

    People getting their first jazz mouthpiece often ask what to get. I would say, if you’re coming from a Yamaha 4C or S80 C*, get the GS New York 5 tip and try it with a Rigotti 2.5 strong, La Voz medium, D’Addario Select Jazz 3S etc. Or if you struggle with reeds, try a Fibracell Premier 2.5 or 3 for a synthetic reed that doesn’t swell and has a tip profile that fits the GS NY tip shape well.

    Each GS New York is carefully hand faced, including flattening the table, and measuring the facing curve at ten points plus the tip, so you can be sure that the one you get will be just as good as the one that I play personally. If I make a mistake in facing, that mouthpiece doesn’t get sold. Every one that goes out the door measures just how it should. Since the table is flat, consider scraping your reed after soaking for the best results. That one tip changes lots of players’ lives, so I thought I’d highlight it here.

    Due to high demand, I’ve been about a week behind on hand facing lately. But I’ll ship your mouthpiece quickly to make up for that.

  • GS SLANT Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece – Classic, Balanced, Beautiful

    $ 199

    GS SLANT Otto Link Florida Slant Signature Tone Edge Replica Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece

    If you’re wanting a classic, all-purpose tenor mouthpiece for jazz, it’s hard to beat the GS SLANT. If you’re a new jazz player coming from a Yamaha 4C or S80 C*, and you don’t want to completely change your embouchure, consider the SLANT in a 5* or 6 tip. It’s a great way to get into jazz tenor tone without feeling out of control. If you’re used to a larger tip, and you’re not sure what to get, it’s hard to go wrong with the SLANT 7*. We have lots of SLANT videos with HiFi audio on the GetASax Youtube channel.

    GS SLANT is an extremely precise copy of my BEST vintage Otto Link Slant Tenor mouthpiece. More precisely, it’s a copy of an original facing 7* Florida Slant Signature Otto Link Tone Edge tenor mouthpiece in perfect original condition.

    This is the version of the ‘Slant’ that nearly everybody wants. It’s the most iconic and desirable hard rubber tenor mouthpiece ever made. When I hear people describing their ideal tenor tone online, it’s most frequently a description of what a good vintage Otto Link Slant sounds like: Dark and powerful, with a good amount of focus and projection. Brightens up and projects when pushed, but never thins out. Super even across all registers. Tunes great on almost any saxophone vintage or modern. That’s what the GS SLANT gives you, for about 1/10th the cost of a comparable original vintage Otto Link Slant Tone Edge tenor saxophone mouthpiece.

    Compared to the GS RESO, the GS SLANT is a little brighter and punchier (but not too bright), and more focused (though still warm and full). It has an instantly recognizable 50’s-60’s jazz tenor tone. See below for the GS SLANT vs Vintage Slant A/B video.

    If you’re a pro looking for the best do-it-all jazz tenor mouthpiece for an affordable price, I think you’d be hard pressed to beat the GS SLANT. It really captures the magic of the original mouthpiece, and that is saying a lot. It’s the only Slant copy I’ve seen that exactly copies a vintage Slant. Even upgrading to a vintage Link Slant at 8x the price wouldn’t actually sound better! And if you’re an amateur or younger player looking for your first good mouthpiece, this gives you the chance to jump right to an excellent mouthpiece that is completely hand faced, without messing with a bunch of machine faced intermediate mouthpieces.

    To read all about GetASax.com’s very own mouthpiece project, visit: GS Mouthpieces (main page) The big idea here is to let you experience the magic of the best mouthpieces I have ever played, for a price that makes them widely accessible for the first time.

  • Guardala Handmade Tenor New Old Stock Michael Brecker Unsigned MPC1441

    $ 1,750

    From a mouthpiece collection come two handmade Guardala tenor mouthpieces in new old stock condition. Both are unengraved/numbered. I talked to Jennifer Price, who helped make the handmade Guardalas along with Dave, and she confirmed that these look like actual handmade Guardalas, and she said that she had seen a few others like these in the past. They’re still expensive because they’re handmade Guardala mouthpieces in new old stock condition, but they’re priced at about half of what the going rate seems to be because they are unsigned. I’m not the world’s most geeky Guardala nerd, but from the ones I have seen over the years, and from the information I can find online for comparison– thanks Steve Neff etc–  (and comparing to the notes on the original Guardala product descriptions)  one looks like a typical Michael Brecker 1 model, but let me know if I need correction on that.
