  • Berg Larsen HR 120 0 M Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC430

    $ 275

    Plays darker than a 0 baffle. This Berg HR has a bullet chamber and straight sidewalls. There are only a few tooth marks, and a little fading from oxidation. The tip measures 0.116″. The table has curved machining marks. The 0 high baffle is mild by modern standards and produces a moderately dark tone. Plays more like a 2 or 3 baffle, and is a nice mouthpiece. Bergs are great to brighten up a tubby tenor without becoming shrill.

    $ 199
  • Berg Larsen HR 95 1 M Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC372

    $ 450

    This Berg Larsen HR offset M. It has a tiny ding in the tip but it does not effect playability, and is in otherwise very good condition. You rarely see them this nice. It has a bullet cut chamber and a classy matching brass cap and ligature. It has a tip opening of 0.096″ Nothing like a Berg for being both warm and projecting. If you’re playing a King, or playing with a band and need to cut through without being shrill, this is the mouthpeice for you.

  • Berg Larsen HR Tenor 100 0 M BP reface 0.100″ Great! MPC581

    $ 350

    Straight sidewalls, moderate baffle by modern standards, small bullet chamber, masterfully refaced retaining the original 0.100″ tip opening by Brian Powell. 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!

    $ 650

    This is a Berg Larsen Slant HR (85 1 SMS) tenor saxophone mouthpiece. The tip opening measures at 0.080.

  • 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 Designed By Tenor 5 with Box C62

    $ 225

    This is a nice original vintage Brilhart tenor piece that has a medium bright tone and good response. It’s an under-appreciated piece that has an enthusiastic cult following. This one is in excellent condition and comes with its original box as well. This is great for any situation where you want to cut through a loud band without being too terribly bright.

  • Brilhart Ebolin 2 (5*) Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC433

    $ 225

    Typical Brilhart thick straight sidewalls, tall and narrow chamber, and 0.076″ tip opening. This piece speaks very easily and has a moderate back pressure, and moderate projection.

    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.

  • Brilhart Personaline L6 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC210

    $ 425

    This is a Brilhart Personaline L6 tenor saxophone mouthpiece. It has a rollover baffle and a medium oval chamber. The L6 stands for long facing 6 opening. The tip opening measures at .077. It is original facing in good condition. This is one of the best vintage tenor pieces for a balanced, projecting 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.

    $ 325

    0.084″ tip opening (modern 5*), rollover baffle, straight sidewalls, med-large chamber for Brilhart. This is one of my favorite Brilharts.

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 Tonalin Great Neck Tenor 5* MPC211

    $ 399

    This is a desirable early Brilhart tenor piece. It is original facing, with curved machine marks on the table and rails. Measures .084″ which is a 5*, though it is stamped 3* (this is common on Brilharts). There are some nicks on the inside of the left rail, but not in the actual facing surface, and there’s some tooth wear in the bite plate. This piece plays very well, with a warm, fat tenor sound that is versatile and just easy.

  • Brilhart Tonalin Streamline 4 Tenor Mouthpiece MPC367

    $ 375

    This VERY rare streamline “Designed By” Arnold Brilhart mouthpiece has a mild rollover baffle and open chamber. There is a hairline crack in the shank, or possibly this is a seam from the mold? It has been played hard and plays really well. It has a tip opening of 0.093″.

    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 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″.

  • Dukoff Super Power Chamber Miami D7 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC569

    $ 375

    Tip measures 0.097″, but plays like a larger opening. Great projection and pretty bright but still meaty as expected from a SPC.

  • Gale Hollywood Triple Rail 6T Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC414

    $ 950

    SUPER rare completely untouched original condition Gale Hollywood triple rail tenor mouthpiece in a 6 tip. You hardly ever see these in this sort of condition. This is a must-have for the serious mouthpiece collector. This one has the silver shank band and the three dots on the body, so it’s the one you want. Why MC Gregory ever made this piece, I do not know.

  • GS Mark II Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece

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

    $ 199

    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 eight years ago, no more of these are available. (Till now.)

    Freddie is known both for refacing and for making his own mouthpieces. The original Super Deluxe Mark II is not a refaced mouthpiece made by someone else , the way my favorite Reso Chamber tenor mouthpiece is. 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. We may copy my favorite Mark IV someday as well, but I wanted to start with the Mark II because it’s bright and projecting but not too bright, and it seems to be one of the most popular ones of these. Bob Mintzer played one of these for a long time, and may still from time to time. I know he has a lot of Freddie’s pieces. Jeff Coffin plays a Mark IV, which sounds a whole lot like the Mark II that we copied for this project (Jeff was kind enough to make several audio comparison samples of the GS Mark II and his Freddie Mark IV, and they are definitely more similar than different.) Steve Neff has some original Mark II sound clips on his website here. We will do some videos as soon as Tyler is finished with the GS New York alto videos he’s working on.

    OK so that should be fairly clear now: The GS Mark II is an extremely precise copy of my favorite Freddie Gregory Super Deluxe Mark II, which is a different design from anything that Otto Link or Berg Larsen or Dukoff made etc. Along with the Mark IV, it’s his most popular design for sure.

    How does it play?

    Describing the tone is hard, because people probably haven’t played one of these. They’re also not that similar to other common mouthpieces like Meyer, Dukoff, or Berg Larsen. It’s different from any model of Otto Link, and is not a redesigned Link chamber at all. The baffle curves from nearly flat at the tip rail, into the chamber in a smooth curve, and the throat opens out into a medium-large chamber. Chamber volume is similar to a metal Otto Link, so it tunes great on basically any saxophone. The shank is long enough that you can pull out on a Conn 10M or something that wants a large mouthpiece volume, and it works well. The side walls start out nearly straight and are more scooped as it moves into the chamber. The magic in these pieces is in the baffle, and we spent a long time getting that just right.

    Tonally, my best attempt at a verbal description would be to say that this has a more projecting tone than a GS Slant or a vintage Otto Link, but it kind of opens out and gets wider and more robust as you push it. Some mouthpieces get more shrill the more air you put into them. The GS Mark II gets more lush and almost ‘operatic’ as you push it. It’s really fun to play. If you want something different from a Link style tenor mouthpiece, and you want a piece that is brighter but not too bright, and that has plenty of power and projection when pushed without getting thin and shrill, that’s what the GS Mark II really does well.

    Facing Information:

    Freddie’s facing curves are usually about .001″ more open than the equivalent Otto Link, so we are reproducing his curves on the GS Mark II. The original that we copied was a 7 measuring .101″ and I also have a 7* and 8 that we used for the .106″ 7* and the .111″ 8 tip. As an interesting side note, most Freddie 8’s are actually stamped 7**, but I think that’s probably because he had them stamped 7* and then would just add another star for an 8. I’ve seen that enough times now to think it’s definitely intentional. They always seem to measure .111-.112″ for me, and we settled on .111″ as it’s closer to what people are used to in an 8.

    A word on price: People are *constantly* telling me that I should raise the prices of the GS Mouthpieces. However, they are intended to be a service to the saxophone community, so that as many players as possible can get a great mouthpiece that is entirely faced by hand and that plays as well as a much more expensive original. The GS Mark II tenor mouthpiece would probably sell almost as well at double the price, but we will be keeping the price $199 as long as possible, because that’s the whole point of the project.

  • GS RESO Otto Link Reso Chamber Replica Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece (All Facings)

    $ 199

    **Update: Due to strong demand, I’m about a week behind on hand facing these mouthpieces for sale. However, regardless of which shipping option you pick, I’ll upgrade you to faster shipping if I can. So even though it’ll take me a week to make your mouthpiece, you’ll still receive it surprisingly quickly.

    I’m very excited to present GetASax.com’s very own mouthpiece project: 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.

    This mouthpiece is a very precise copy of my personal Otto Link Reso Chamber tenor mouthpiece, which was faced by the great Freddie Gregory to a perfect 7*. It’s medium dark, but not too dark, with moderate focus, and gets punchy without thinning out when pushed. Balanced and responsive, it’s one of the best all-around tenor mouthpieces I’ve played. Even if you normally play brighter pieces, the GS Reso is worth having in your arsenal. It’s ideal for jazz, beautiful on ballads, and can handle burning bebop tenor lines like a champ. The facing is just right. Subtone is effortless, response is quick. Altissimo pops right out. It’s very free blowing and takes air extremely comfortably. The 7* .105″ tip opening is very comfortable. Newer players can easily manage it with a 2.5 reed. And for pros, it slots right in with a Rigotti 3 light to 3.5 medium. (I like the Rigotti 3 light personally.)

    The computer model we developed for the Reso is accurate down to .001” compared to my original Reso Chamber. Each mouthpiece gets carefully hand faced, precisely measured, and tested, so that it really is totally right! Bottom line: You get the equivalent of a $1500+ vintage mouthpiece for only $199. People keep saying we should charge more, but the whole idea from the start has been to make the best mouthpieces widely accessible, not to maximize profits. A lot of people have never played a really good mouthpiece. It’s time to change that. 

    Using cutting-edge tech, we went through over 50 prototypes so that now every one of these sounds like the original.

    When you select any tip opening other than the FG SPECIAL 7*, then you will be getting a Reso Chamber built from my original facing Reso Chamber. The reason for this is pretty easy to explain: Otto Link manufactured mouthpiece ‘blanks’ with a zero tip opening. Then they opened them up from a closed tip to whatever tip opening they wanted. In order to give you different tip openings authentically, we needed to do it the same way. So we started with a smaller tip Reso Chamber, and then we used Otto Link facing curves to carefully model ‘opening’ the 5 tip to whatever facing you want, just like if it were done on a facing machine. We also move the baffle work to the appropriate position like on a hand finished piece. This Reso Chamber mouthpiece is unbelievably good. It is just as rich and complex as the FG SPECIAL RESO, but it plays just a little brighter, and the mouthpiece itself is also a little longer (Otto Link used a couple of different molds to make the Reso Chamber model.) It’s the one that Steve Neff reviews here. So if you normally have to pull out a lot to tune, or you want just a little more punch than the FG SPECIAL RESO while remaining basically dark and rich, that’s what you get!

    If you want an exact copy of the Reso Chamber Joe Allard Facing that we scanned, including the J.A. stamp on the table and the more rounded tip profile, then select the 5 JA facing. It measures .081″ or so and takes air nicely. The smaller tip GS RESO mouthpieces are perfect for concert band or ensemble tenor settings. If you’re coming from a Yamaha 4C or Vandoren and want something richer, warmer, and more interesting, consider one of the smaller tip GS RESO models. They are excellent all-purpose tenor mouthpieces.

     

    Material:

    GS Mouthpieces are made of a premium biocompatible dental resin, and printed at an especially high resolution. You don’t see messy print lines everywhere, because the print is so high quality! This dental resin is designed to be in your mouth, so it’s ideal for a mouthpiece.

    The density and the hardness are almost identical to vintage hard rubber! So GS Mouthpieces vibrate like hard rubber and feel familiar and comfortable to play.

    Finishing:

    Each GS Reso gets carefully hand faced and finished before coming to you. This is super important. The magic of a mouthpiece is in the facing. If you buy a generic, mass-produced mouthpiece, chances are the table is not flat and the facing is uneven between the side rails. As a result, the reed vibrates unevenly. It feels stuffy and dead, resistant, and all-around disappointing to play. SO many people have this problem, whether they know it or not. I don’t know how many players I’ve helped to get their first actually good mouthpiece, and all of a sudden playing is fun!

    Since we flatten the table, you get an easy reed seal. There are no print lines or marks messing up the facing. It’s smooth and perfect like a boutique mouthpiece. The facing is also finished by hand, which is a BIG plus. I’m really picky about this, so I learned to do it myself so I could be sure these pieces were actually the same as my Freddie Gregory-faced Reso Chamber. Each facing is measured at ten points to make sure that it is even and consistent throughout. 

    Mouthpiece facings are unforgiving. Small problems can make a big difference in playability. Unlike any other mouthpiece of its kind or anywhere near its price, each one of these GS mouthpieces goes out the door only when it is faced just right. Every one is as good as the best mouthpieces I have played.

    I have been collecting mouthpieces seriously for over ten years now, and I have been saving the very best ones over that time. I currently have about 750 pieces, and of those there are about 20 that I think are in that Holy Grail category. Those are the mouthpieces that will be coming out in the GS Mouthpieces line. Keep an eye on this, if you want to put together a collection of the best playing saxophone mouthpieces ever, while keeping costs to a minimum. Each one has a magic of its own, and each one gives you a unique and beautiful tone and response that makes it a joy to play! 

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

    $ 199

    **Update: Due to strong demand, I’m about a week behind on hand facing these mouthpieces for sale. However, regardless of which shipping option you pick, I’ll upgrade you to express 2 day shipping – or FedEx International Priority shipping if you’re overseas. So even though it’ll take me a week to make your mouthpiece, you’ll still receive it surprisingly quickly, especially internationally.

    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 only 15% the cost of an 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 bright), and more focused (though still warm and full). It has an instantly recognizable 50’s-60’s jazz tenor tone. We’ll post hi-fi sound samples of the GS SLANT on a variety of brands of saxophone very soon! 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.

    Scooped sidewalls, large round chamber, no baffle. Tip opening measures 0.100″. High resistance but in a good way, dark tone, easy subtones. The relatively large tip opening and no baffle combination is great for someone looking for a great ensemble or classical piece.

  • Meyer NY 4 Medium Chamber Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC402

    $ 450

    Meyer Bros NY tenor piece original facing, in beautiful condition. These are made with the best hard rubber ever. This has a medium chamber, which in today’s world is medium-large. The altos of Meyer Bros get more attention, but the tenors are a lot like the highly coveted Link Slant and Hard Rubber Brilhart mouthpieces, and deserve more attention. This one is beautiful original condition, measuring .072″, so good for classical or ensemble playing as is, but you’d want to open it up a bit for jazz I think. Comes with a nice Selmer Mark VI era ligature and cap set that often sells for $100 just by itself.

  • Otto Link Florida Super Tone Master USA 7* Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC371

  • Otto Link Florida Tone Edge Straight Signature 5* Original Facing Original Box MPC625

    $ 850

    This is a beautiful original facing Florida Tone Edge that is identical to the late Florida Slant Tone Edge except that it has a straight Otto Link signature stamp. It has the FL baffle and facing marks, as well as the original Pompano Beach box; ligature and cap. A real find!! And it’s a great deal if you want an FL Slant but want to save some money on it only because the signature isn’t slanted. Scooped sidewalls, large round chamber, rollover baffle. Tip opening measures 0.089″. Great tone edge brightness and edge. The smaller tip opening limits max volume and projection without being stuffy and allows for subtle work.

    Otto Link Master Link 4**** 4* (Actually a 6*) Tenor Mouthpiece MPC626

    $ 600

    This is a very vintage Otto Link ‘4****’ model Master Link that is also a 4* tip stamped on the table but was opened to a 6* at .095″. Cavernous chamber, scooped sidewalls, slight rollover baffle. Pharoah Sanders played one of these for a long time before switching to a GS Slant of all things. Tip opening measures 0.095″, and must have received a good reface at some point. This piece plays with an airy Ben Webster-Esque subtone all the time for me. Very good at what it does.

  • Otto Link Reso Chamber Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece EG 7* Excellent! mpc1313

    $ 1,500

    For those of you who are fans of the Otto Link Reso Chamber, here’s an excellent one that was owned by Keenan McKenzie (my former assistant, who did a GS Reso review video for GetASax). It was opened to a 7* by Erik Greiffenhagen and plays beautifully. If you like the GS RESO, it plays very similarly to that, but it’s not a copy, haha. Warm, velvety, round, beautiful for ballads, a bit punchy when pushed, but not super bright. Ben Wendell and Seamus Blake both play/ed a Reso like this and get a lot of projection on it by moving a lot of air, so if you like that dark-but-fat sound Link+Selmer, you can also do that on this.

    Otto Link Super Tone Master USA 6 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC586

    $ 225

    Gently curved sidewalls, medium-large chamber, and an abrupt rollover baffle give this piece a strong attack and bright tone. The ligature with this piece is a bit mis-shapen. As a result it is difficult to use at the back of the mouthpiece. Tip opening measures 0.088″.

  • Otto Link Super Tone Master USA NY 7 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC585

  • Otto Link Tone Edge Straight Sig 5* Refaced Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC373

    $ 300

    This Otto Link measures .090″ which would be about a 6 tip. So it was probably just barely opened up. It plays more like a 6* or 7 and is more free blowing than a typical tone edge of this era. Great piece for someone who wants a smaller tip that still takes enough air. This is probably early 80’s vintage.

    Otto Link Tone Master 7* (Erik Greiffenhagen) Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC600

    $ 850

    This is a beautiful Coltrane-era metal ToneMaster (not Super Tone Master). I got it refaced to a playable tip, as the original 3 facing just wasn’t going to work for anyone. The ToneMaster has curved sidewalls, large chamber, and a moderate rollover baffle. The tip was opened to 0.105″ by Eric Greiffenhagen. The refacing transforms this into a modern jazz mouthpiece, but with a bit of darkness and subtone lushness remaining from the large chamber and original character of the mouthpiece. Low resistance and good projection like a good modern mouthpiece of this tip opening. Coltrane played a larger tip ToneMaster like this on some of his most influential recordings. It has that combination of fat tone and projection that a lot of people are chasing. Highly recommended.

  • Ponzol M1 Hard Rubber Custom USA Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece F50

    $ 225

    This is a hard rubber version of the Ponzol M1 tenor saxophone mouthpiece. It has high baffle, metal mouthpiece proportions. If you like the streamlined proportions of metal and easy on the teeth compliance of hard rubber, this this may be your piece. It has straight sidewalls, small chamber, and a high stepped baffle. Tip opening measures 0.115″. The high baffle does not disappoint with projection and brightness, but it is also surprisingly easy to lay back and get a slightly darker tone. It would be a nice all around mouthpiece in the right setting, like a combo with electric guitar for example, where you want a cool tone with the option to cut through when needed. If you’ve been playing a Berg and want something slightly brighter, this would do the trick. 

  • Selmer C* Long Shank Soloist Style Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC548

    $ 275

    Vintage 1970’s Selmer Long Shank Soloist Style tenor saxophone mouthpiece in its original C* facing at .068″ or so. Complete your set with a 70’s Selmer Mark VI tenor, or Mark VII tenor, or get a solid, all-purpose tenor mouthpiece for wind band or ensemble playing. These also work pretty well for classical tenor repertoire. This has a different chamber and sound from the detestable modern S80 C* for tenor, which is my least favorite tenor mouthpiece. This is much better.

  • Selmer S80 C* Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC544

    $ 110

    Tip opening measures 0.066. No baffle, straight sidewalls, small squared off chamber. OK dark tone with a hard reed.

  • Selmer S80 D facing Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC607

    $ 100

    This piece has a smallish tip opening and a square chamber, giving it a narrow dynamic range and a stuffy, nasal tone. Some band directors require these mouthpieces, as do many saxophone teachers, so I always have tons of them around here. But if I had my way, they would all be incinerated. I mean this specifically about the tenor pieces – the altos and sopranos are nice for beginner players. If you are required to buy this piece by some ill-informed authority figure, then please do the following two things. First, buy a used one, rather than paying the ridiculously high new price that Selmer charges, and second, let me know, and I will help you to find another piece that will actually give your otherwise-nice-sounding tenor the kind of tone that it deserves to have. The only mouthpiece this is better than is the even smaller tip C* S80.

    This is a quintessential vintage Selmer Soloist with a classical-leaning tone. It has straight sidewalls, horseshoe chamber, subtle rollover baffle, and the tip opening measures 0.073″. It has a dark Selmer tone, with no edge at all despite mild rollover baffle. Round and warm and dark like a cello. If you want your Selmer to lean classical or wind band or small ensemble, this would be ideal. It also completes your set with a Selmer Mark VI tenor from the 1960’s.

    Selmer Soloist Short Shank C** Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC597

    $ 400

    This is a beautiful example of a 50’s Selmer Soloist ‘short shank’ tenor saxophone mouthpiece. This would have come with a late SBA or 50’s Selmer Mark VI tenor. It was designed as a dark, classical leaning mouthpiece, but sometimes people get these opened to larger tips to do the Joe Henderson sort of thing for jazz. The Soloist has straight sidewalls, a pretty small chamber, and a very slight rollover baffle. Dark mellow tone, high resistance piece, good for section work or maybe classical with a bit of an edge. Tip opening measures 0.075″.

  • Steve Broadus New York Perfected Model S3 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC599

    $ 150

    Steve Broadus mouthpieces are high quality and under-appreciated today, mainly because they didn’t do enough marketing in the mid-20th-century, and because they mostly made smaller tip openings. This is well made though and has high-quality materials and design. It should probably be refaced unless you like very small tip openings. It has curved sidewalls, large chamber like a Link Reso Chamber, mild rollover baffle. Tip opening measures 0.058″. With a normal reed, this is thin and pinches off due to the very small tip opening, but with a harder reed, it has nice resistance and a lush dark tone, but still not a whole lot of projection. An interesting piece for west coast style combo work or a starting point for a modern reface.

  • Tenor Hard Rubber Brilhart 3-Band Reproduction Ligature Echo Brass

    $ 165

    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.

  • echobrass echomaster tenor metal mouthpiece ligature

    Tenor Metal Otto Link Brilhart Reproduction 3 Band Ligature Berg Larsen Dukoff!

    $ 165

    Best ligature around for a metal Otto Link (and similar) tenor mouthpiece! Way better than the stock Otto Link metal top screw ligature, this gives you a much firmer hold on the reed, which greatly improves response and reduces movement or reed swelling on the mouthpiece table. The plastic reed plate fits the reed beautifully and opens up plenty of vibration. No deadening fabrics or strings here. Plus, this is made to the highest standards in South Korea by people who care about quality saxophone equipment. It’s a true reproduction down to the materials used, of the most desirable saxophone ligature ever made. This also fits larger body Berg Larsen and vintage Hollywood Dukoff tenor mouthpieces, and all Otto Link Metal-sized tenor mouthpieces, like Ted Klum Focustone Tonamax, Theo Wanne larger body metal, and many others. See the photos. For thin body metal mouthpieces, get the Guardala sized tenor ligature instead.

    If you want the best ligature for a Berg Larsen metal tenor mouthpiece, this is it. If you want the best ligature for a Dukoff Hollywood or Dukoff Stubby tenor piece, again, this is it.

    This ligature fits all metal Otto Link tenor mouthpieces also – past and present. It fits Masterlink, 4****, ToneMaster, Super ToneMaster NY, FL, Early Babbitt, and regular Babbitt-made pieces. The modern variants like the ‘New Vintage’ NY, Millennium edition etc also all fit.

    Buy with confidence. I take returns, and I stand behind this product. It’s the real deal.

  • Tenor Metal Otto Link Mouthpieces – OT-BB size all metal with BB Screws EchoMaster Ligature

    $ 165
    Introducing a new EchoMaster ligature. This is the OT-BB size that fits metal Otto Link mouthpieces and is all-metal with BB screws. This is one versatile and beautifully built ligature.
     
    It’s one ligature for almost all metal tenor mouthpieces. It also fits all Dukoff metal and Berg Larsen metal mouthpieces among many others. I took photos of almost every version of Link as well as Dukoffs and a Berg if you want to scroll through. It also fits metal Yanagisawa on the slim side, and even metal 10MFan and MacSax on the fat side. Quite useful, as you get a tight reed seal, where most Link ligatures are impossible to tighten. This one is easy.

    Woodwind Co K4* (Actually 7) .100″ EG Reface Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece Great! MPC952

    $ 225

    This is like a vintage Reso Chamber or Slant (more like a Slant) also made of the same great old hard rubber (steel ebonite they called it), and then refaced by the great Erik Greiffenhagen. Erik did a tidy looking Link style baffle on this one that gives you a combination of warmth and projection that you normally have to buy a $1000+ Link to get. This is a great deal if you want something like the GS RESO/SLANT but black. It had a tiny shank crack, so I banded it with a metal band using half of a ligature. Should last forever that way. Price reduced as a result.

  • Woodwind Co. NY D7 Tenor .073″ 4* Tip MPC253

    $ 299

    If you talk mouthpieces with me, you will find that I am a big fan of the Woodwind Company. It was a wonderful place where you would go with your teacher and get fitted with a mouthpiece by a mouthpiece maker at his bench, finding which of the 168 facings and numerous chambers worked best for you. For tenor, I find I like the B chamber and the D chamber best so far. (for soprano and alto, it’s different). This is a nice, vintage Woodwind Co D7 tenor, which has a medium-large, round chamber and just a little bit of baffle. It is similar to a Florida Otto Link Tone Edge in the baffle profile, though the chamber is slightly smaller. It has nicely curved side walls and a beatifully done facing with thin tip and side rails and a signature “cloudy” looking table with facing stamped on the table. This is a nice, balanced player that would be perfect for the tenor player who is not going for a big tip opening, but wants a piece that sounds good and is easy to control. It has a warm, rich tone with just enough punch to make it work for jazz when pushed, but not so much that you stand out from a section if you want to blend. Great do-it-all tenor piece for a variety of playing situations.

Maybe this was one of his personal pieces? It’s hard to say. They usually just say ‘Dick Stabile model’ not ‘Special made for Dick Stabile,’ so maybe this is a cool collectible, in addition to being a nice all-purpose mouthpiece that is easy to play.
