  • New York Model alto Meyer Bros Ted Klum

    ‘Meyer Bros.’ New York Model Alto Mouthpiece by Ted Klum – the Best!

    $ 499

    This is an exceptional alto saxophone mouthpiece. It does literally anything you want it to, from lead alto, to ballads, to section work, to pit and concert band. It is what I play, and I can’t recommend it highly enough. Every single person who has bought one has emailed back or called me with rave reviews. I don’t normally make these kinds of pronouncements about mouthpieces, but until you play one of Ted Klum’s facings, it is possible that you don’t yet know how easy it should be to play saxophone. The response is instant; subtone is effortless; altissimo is right there and easy. The tone is just gorgeous – it’s based on the type of Meyer Bros that Cannonball Adderley played, and it really does lean in that full-throated, warm, lyrical direction that you think of with Cannonball. Phil Woods’ tone is another reference point for alto players, and he also played a NY Meyer like this is based on. The big reasons to buy this instead of hunting for a NY Meyer are price and consistency. Meyer Bros NY alto mouthpieces now sell 2-5x the price of this piece. And out of 5 original facing Meyer Bros pieces, you might get 2-3 good ones. Every single one of Ted’s New York Models is consistently great.

    You can get this version with the silver shank band included, or you can get it without the silver band. The band is an aesthetic nod to Cannonball Adderley, whose Meyer Bros had a similar one, and it is also protects the shank from cracking over the years or from a too-large neck cork. It is dry-fit with a ring sizing machine, so you can take it off or put it on without any adhesive. If you have any questions about these mouthpieces, feel free to contact me.

I don’t normally make these kinds of pronouncements about mouthpieces, but until you play one of Ted Klum’s facings, it is possible that you don’t yet know how easy it should be to play saxophone. Ted Klum is one of the most highly-skilled and artistic mouthpiece makers in the world, and his work is just about the best that there ever has been. It would be wise to get one of Ted’s mouthpieces before he retires and they suddenly jump up in value.

    How does it play? The response is instant; subtone is effortless; altissimo is right there and easy.

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

    $ 165

    For hard rubber alto saxophone mouthpieces like Meyer Bros, 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 Hard Rubber Brilhart Reproduction 3-Band Ligature Selmer Meyer Saxophone Mouthpieces

    $ 165

    This ligature fits almost all hard rubber alto saxophone mouthpieces, like Meyer Bros, 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.

    Brilhart 3-Band Alto Ligature Vintage MPC264

    This is a highly-desirable vintage Brilhart-made 3-Band alto saxophone ligature with delrin screws and plastic reed plate. These were deluxe when they were first sold, and they were popularized recently by Kenny Garrett on alto. The plastic on the reed plate is somewhat worn, but the ligature functions well and is in good shape otherwise.

It has curved sidewalls, a medium round chamber, and a slight roll over baffle. Tip opening measures 0.072″, and the facing looks original, with a ‘creamy’ matte table, tip and rails. Beautiful, medium-dark tone. Earliest Brilhart serial that I have seen.

  • Brilhart Ebolin 3 (Meyer 5 tip) Alto Saxophone Moutpiece MPC529

    $ 100

    $ 120

    0.083″ tip opening, mild rollover baffle, tall narrow chamber. Someone clearly loved this piece for many years evidenced by the repaired tooth gouges and shank ring. It plays moderately bright, and has a nice even response across the full range of the horn. Nice that the shank now won’t crack on you. If you love the full, warm Maceo Parker Brilhart alto tone, and you want a larger tip you can get it on this piece.

    Brilhart Personaline Alto L5 MPC183

    The Personaline is one of the best vintage alto pieces for a balanced, projecting alto tone that doesn’t sound just like every other mouthpiece. It was Brilihart’s top-of-the-line in its day, and is well made with the marbled tooth guard and gold lettering. The L5 is a comfortable .067″ tip that is around a Meyer 4. Works great with a medium reed. The oval-shaped medium chamber has a slanting floor and and slanted down side walls. I like this piece for its crisp, lively alto sound and for being nice and easy to play. The facing is original and cloudly looking with curved machine marks. There are a few tiny nicks in the outside of the rails, but nothing that affects playability.

  • Brilhart Streamline 5 Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC400

    $ 375

    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 Vintage BB Screws AL Metal 3-Band Alto Saxophone Ligature – The Original!

    $ 999

    This is the most desirable vintage ligature ever, and sells for high prices to both collectors and players. I have seen these sell much higher, but I can’t bring myself to ask the kinds of prices I have seen them sell for on eBay. This is the AL stamped BB screws Brilhart 3-band ligature. I have one of these myself, that I have used for many years, and I sell the excellent Echo Master Brilhart reproduction ligatures on this site also, which are true reproductions of the original. But as with famous works of art, the more copies there are, the more epic and desirable become the originals. This is a rare original one, in very good condition, and it plays great, as you would expect. This fits anything from a Selmer Soloist to a Meyer Bros NY ‘Fat Boy’ and is just a nice and well made ligature, as much as it is a collectible.

  • Buffet HR C2 (5 tip) Classical Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC435

    $ 125

    This vintage Buffet mouthpiece gives you a dark, round, cello-like tone, but it has a tip opening that is not too closed to allow some dynamic range. It’s a good choice for a classical alto player or concert band setting where you don’t want to sound like everybody else who is playing the square Selmer chambers. This gives you a fuller, rounder, wider tone than a Selmer classical piece.

  • Chedeville Alto Mouthpiece MPC259

    $ 200

    This is a Chedeville alto saxophone mouthpiece. It has a low baffle and a large round chamber. The tip opening measures at 0.072.

    $ 50

    This very old mouthpiece is in surprisingly good condition. It has an 0.068″ tip opening, a very mild rollover baffle, mostly straight sidewalls, and a medium chamber. Great for legit alto, classical alto etc. Reminds me of the Caravan / Rascher mouthpieces, but less dark.

  • Couesnon R4 HR Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC491

    $ 85

    Big round vintage tone with straight sidewalls, medium chamber, very subtle rollover baffle. Tip opening measures 0.062″. Some resistance and moderate projection, but would make a lovely classical or quiet ensemble piece. Nice thin rails and good hard rubber!

  • Dukoff D5 .084″ (Meyer 8) Super Power Chamber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC523

    $ 175

    0.084″ tip opening. Small chamber, high baffle, straigh sidewalls. When Mr. Dukoff says super power, he means it. If you want to cut through a rock mix and funk it up you can’t go wrong with this. The chamber is nice and smooth on this example where it transitions into the bore, onlike some other examples of this piece that I have seen.

    Dukoff Miami D5 Clear Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece F71

    This is a rare and desirable clear Dukoff Miami alto piece. It is the same as the Sanborn-style metal ones, but it is made out of “crystallite” which. I have the metal version of this piece right now as well, and if time allows, I’ll check back with any obvious impressions about differences between the two.

    Dukoff Miami D7 Alto The Sanborn Piece MPC263

    It goes to eleven. This is a Miami, FL Dukoff Super Power Chamber alto piece in a D7 tip opening. This is what David Sanborn has famously played for many years. The tip measures .081″ and the facing is original. This includes the rare vintage plastic ligature and original cap. There is quite a bit of wear in the tooth guard area, and that could be cleaned up, but I just left it so you can do what you want with it. I would probably take off the extra tooth guard, clean it, and put a new clear vandoren one on there, and it should be good. These pieces show better workmanship than on the modern Dukoff pieces.

    King Super 20 1950s Original Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC370

    $ 150

    Complete your set with a King Super 20 from the 1950’s! This King mouthpiece is strikingly white. On the interior it is very similar to a classic Brilhart shape: very mild rollover baffle, and mostly straight sidewalls. It has a tip opening of 0.065″. It plays a little bigger and brighter than the tip opening suggests. The tip and side rails are in great condition.

  • LeBayle Ebonite Studio S7 Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC421 Meyer 5 Good player!

    $ 225

    Fred LeBayle is basically out of business these days, after tanking his reputation in a big way. This is a rare chance to get a really good one from when he was doing his best work. Nicely made example of a LeBayle Studio alto mouthpiece in an S7 facing, measuring .075″ which means that it plays more like a Meyer 5 tip. This piece has a high baffle for a crisp, projecting alto sound like you’d want in the studio for commercial music or smooth jazz etc. The larger bullet chamber gives you some warmth and complexity, but it’s mostly crisp bright power that I hear.

  • Sold Out

    Lebayle LR 7 Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece “New” D02

    This is a Lebayle LR 7. Fred Lebayle is a French mouthpiece maker that currently has his shop set up in Brooklyn, NY. His mouthpieces are played by artists such as Branford Marsalis, Wayne Shorter, Dave Liebman, and Ravi Coltrane. This piece has .073 tip opening, a rollover baffle, straight side walls, and a bullet chamber. It is also in excellent condition and comes in its original box.

  • Lelandais Super Jazz Metal Alto F Mezzo Mouthpiece D12

    $ 275

    This is an unusual vintage piece from Lelandais (a French mouthpiece manufacturer) stamped “Super Jazz.” It has a “IV” by the table, and it measures .065, which is about a Meyer 4 as well. The chamber is HUGE, like an early Otto Link (pre-Tone Master), so this piece plays with a big, dark sound, despite the fact that it is metal. (The geometry of the piece determines its acoustics more than the material.)

    This piece is much smaller than a typical alto mouthpiece – at least 1.5cm shorter than a Selmer Soloist, for instance. This makes me wonder whether it might not be a good fit for a Conn F Mezzo (which sounds 1/2 step higher than alto. It was not designed as such, but the F Mezzo owners of the world don’t have a lot of options, so this could be cool to try.

  • MC Gregory Los Angeles 5A 20 Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC540

    $ 325

    This vintage MC Gregory Los Angeles mouthpiece has its original facing and measures at a modern 4 tip or .066″. It has straight sidewalls, small to medium chamber and not much baffle. Mellow dark tone, moderate resistance, low-moderate projection. Beak has quite a bit of tooth wear, so I’m pricing it much lower than a normal vintage MC Gregory. Get your Desmond vibe on for less. Tip opening measures 0.066″

    This is one of the rarest pieces on the site right now. It’s an original 5 metal Meyer Bros Tru-Flex alto mouthpiece. It measures .075″ and has a large chamber and low baffle. There are some light surface scratches in the baffle area, where there was some gunk that needed to be cleaned out. And there’s a small amount of wear on the bite plate, but not much. Most of the original gold plating is intact, and the original slide on ligature is included and works well. This piece plays surprisingly well!

    Meyer New York USA 5M Medium Chamber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece Original! MPC395

    $ 1,200

    This Meyer New York USA 5M Medium Chamber is in excellent original condition. It has a beautiful baffle, nicely curved sidewalls, and a nearly untouched appearance throughout. The tip opening measures a correct original 0.074″. The NYUSA 5M is kind of a gold standard of session alto playing, and comes across a bit brighter than the ‘Meyer Bros NY’ which immediately preceded this version. It’s a perfect do it all alto piece for the serious player.

  • Meyer NYUSA 4L Alto Mouthpiece G34

  • Meyer USA 5M Medium Chamber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC520

    $ 225

    0.073″ tip opening. Great flexible tone and projection as expected from a good example of the definitive alto mouthpiece.

  • Meyer USA 5M Medium Chamber Alto Saxophone MPC489

    $ 225

    A nice example of a “not so vintage” (80’s?) USA Meyer 5. Good hard rubber, nice thin rails. Good projection and a nice bright tone without being too edgy. Tip opening measures 0.072″. A prudent choice if you want a good Meyer on a budget that isn’t expensive like the New York Meyers are.

  • Meyer USA 6M Medium Chamber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC522

    $ 225

    0.077″ tip opening, just slightly more power than the 5M.

  • Meyer USA 6M Medium Chamber Alto Saxophone Moutpiece MPC398

    $ 165

    Nice older (1980’s?) USA Meyer 6M alto piece in a comfortable tip opening for jazz or lead alto in a big band. Better quality than the ones made today. The Meyer is the standard by which other alto pieces are described, and a good Meyer like this is a great starting point for any player who isn’t sure what to get. If you’re a newer player, you might look for a 4 or 5 tip, or use this 6 tip with a softer reed. The tone is warm, full-bodied, and has enough zing to let you play tunes with a pleasant amount of projection and tone but without sounding at all shrill. It’s a good happy medium, and you can take it in many different directions tonally with practice. That’s probably part of why Meyers are historically so popular.

  • Meyer USA 7M Medium Chamber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC409 Great! 1980s

    $ 195

    Better than a modern Meyer by a lot, this is a beautiful early 80’s Meyer alto mouthpiece in an original 7 tip. It has nice thin rails and a good facing. Plays easily, and includes the original box. Tip measures .082. Better hard rubber, better finishing, and better facing than a new Meyer.

    Otto Link Late Florida / Early Babbitt Alto Tone Edge Hard Rubber 7 MPC235

    This is a very fun to play Otto Link alto piece. It’s an original 7 measuring .088″. The denim machine marks on the table go right down the rails as well, so this piece has not been messed with or even played much. It has a tiny nick in the right side rail and a scratch on the table and a few scratches on the body. Just normal stuff that does not affect playability. As far as what “model” this is, I’ll be as clear as possible. I would call this either a Late Florida Link (made and stamped in FL, faced in Elkhart), or an early Early Babbitt!

  • Otto Link Reso Chamber 4* Alto Mouthpiece MPC342

    $ 525

    This is an Otto Link Reso Chamber 4* alto saxophone mouthpiece. Its tip opening measures at 0.064. This piece is an exceptional player! There is some light wear from age, but nothing that will affect playability.

This piece plays well with a nice warm tone that is perfect for jazz or really a wide range of playing styles. And I have rarely seen an example this nice of a slant alto piece.

  • Otto Link Slant NY Eburnated Bar 4* Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC380

    $ 399

    This very old and a little worn but the bite plate and rails are very nice. It has a rollover baffle, curved sidewalls and large chamber. The tip opening measures 0.076″. This was opened up to a 6 tip by someone good. The table is flat and the tip and rails are beautiful. If you want something basically dark and warm, easy to play, and that takes air well, has easy response etc., then this is the piece for you. It’s hard to find something at all similar among new mouthpieces made today.

  • Otto Link Slant NY Eburnated Bar 4* Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC382

    A lovely classic warm round sound and killer good looks. Very large chamber, scooped sidewalls, and rollover baffle. Tip opening measures 0.067″. This is a high-quality vintage alto piece for going for a warm, lush alto tone. Good for 30’s/40’s section work, concert band, wind ensemble, or even classical playing with the responsive facing and large round chamber.

    Otto Link Tone Edge 5* Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece F45

    This is a Otto Link Tone Edge 5* for alto saxophone. It has a .067 tip opening, a rollover baffle, curved side walls, and a large round chamber. There is some fading, but overall this piece looks great. It’s a robust, punchy player.

  • Otto Link Tone Edge Florida Straight Sig 8* Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC428

    $ 325

    This is a great Otto Link Florida Tone Edge alto saxophone mouthpiece. This is the same as the USA Slant Signature Florida Otto Link, but with the signature changed to straight across. This was made in FL before the Early Babbitt pieces and has a little more warmth to the sound than the true EB pieces do. It was refaced at some point from an original 5* to an 8* tip, or 0.091″. The tip and rails are in excellent condition. From the markings on the rails and very thin tip rail, it appears most of the work was done near the tip, making for a great projection and a little more edge than stock Link. This works great for lead alto or for cutting through a band, but retains much more warmth than you would get with most other larger tip, projecting alto mouthpieces.

  • Otto Link Tone Edge Straight Sig 7 Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC526

    $ 220

    0.090″ tip opening is big, but not as challenging as most other alto pieces at this opening. The rollover baffle looks to be hand finished to improve symmetry and form compared to a typical tone edge. There is some resistance to this piece, but it rewards you for the effort with a big fat tone to fill any room.

  • Otto Link Tone Master 4* Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC393

    $ 399
  • Otto Link Tone Master 4* Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC469

    $ 300

    Light reface to a 0.062″ tip opening. Mild rollover baffle, large chamber, curved sidewalls. It has a much darker tone than you might normally think of with metal. Very playable. If you want a rich, medium-dark alto tone, and want a mouthpiece that looks cool, and is more durable than hard rubber, this would be a good option. It brightens up when pushed, but is not a bright mouthpiece overall.

  • Penzel-Mueller New York Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece B14

    $ 99

    This is an interesting old mouthpiece with a medium, semi-round chamber, but with flat side walls and a fair amount of baffle. There are some scratches in the baffle area. It is a pretty good player now, in original condition. It is Meyer-like, but with a bit more of an edge to it. Very good hard rubber in these pieces!

  • Ponzol Custom Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece D80
