  • 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.

    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 ‘Designed By’ Tonalin Streamline 4 (Modern 5*) Tenor MPC539DT Original Facing Rare!

    $ 475

    Super rare early Brilhart Tonalin Streamline ‘Designed By’ Brilhart Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece. Medium-large tall but narrow Brilhart Tonalin chamber, straight sidewalls, very subtle rollover baffle. The worn bite plate indicates that it was well-loved. With a bit harder than my normal reed, this piece produces lovely subtones at full volume. A nice fat tone, good projection. This streamline shape works well with a normal HR alto ligature, or with the Echo Master hard rubber alto ligature on this site.

  • Brilhart Hard Rubber 0.105″ EG reface Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece MPC562

    $ 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 Metal 5* Like a Berg/Guardala Studio Tenor D71

    $ 199

    This is a Brilhart Metal 5* for tenor saxophone. These were some of Arnold Brilhart’s first mouthpieces as indicated by the “Designed by Arnold Brilhart” on the shaft. This piece has a .091 tip opening, a high baffle, straight side walls, and a large round chamber. These are pieces that have not been appreciated as much as they deserve. For a projecting tenor sound that maintains a lot of body to it, these are in the same league as a vintage Berg (=Berg #0 baffle), and they sound surprisingly similar to a Guardala Studio or Michael Brecker piece (of all things). The far edge of the bite plate has a hairline crack. This doesn’t affect functionality though. Besides that, this piece is in excellent condition.

    Brilhart Personaline HR L5 Alto Mouthpiece MPC350

  • 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.

  • 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.

    This is a Brilhart Tonalin Great Neck 3* tenor saxophone mouthpiece. It has a slight rollover baffle, straight side walls, and a medium oval chamber. The tip opening measures at 0.083. There is some wear on the bite plate, but nothing that affects playability.

  • 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 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.

  • Tenor Hard Rubber BB Screws Brilhart Reproduction 3-Band Ligature Saxophone Mouthpieces Otto Link Slant Selmer Soloist

    $ 165

    For hard rubber tenor saxophone mouthpieces like Otto Link Tone Edge, Otto Link Reso Chamber. All Link Slant tenor copies and reproductions, and almost all modern hard rubber tenor mouthpieces will fit great with this ligature. It has long screws to fit a slim hard modern Vandoren or Selmer Soloist, all the way up to large body vintage tenor piece like a Conn Steelay, or the larger NY Meyers, Woodwind Co NY, or Hard Rubber Brilharts. The all-metal design is more labor intensive to build, with a lot of careful silver soldering going into the production. The brass is high quality and supple. The BB screws tighten easily.

    **Out of the box, the ligature is adjusted to fit a larger body mouthpiece like an Otto Link Tone Edge. For a slimmer mouthpiece, simply put the ligature on your mouthpiece, tighten the screws, and then press hard to bend the reed plate a little closer to the table.

    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.

    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.
