    Brilhart Hard Rubber Great Neck Tenor 4-digit .079″ MPC251

    $ 450

    This is a beautiful early Brilhart tenor mouthpiece. It’s the “Designed By Arnold Brilhart” stamped model, and it has a 4-digit serial 1803. Great Neck NY on the shank, and a 4 stamp on the table. Looks like original facing to me, and measures .079, which is about a modern 5. There are some light tooth scratches on the beak that would polish off, and a few other scratches on the body. This is an easy to play tip opening for people looking for a first tenor mouthpiece, or a piece to play in an ensemble or band setting, or even for classical sax.

    Dukoff D9 Alto Mouthpiece .089″ Screamer MPC261

    $ 169

    It goes to eleven. This is an original box Dukoff Super Power Chamber alto piece. Are you in a college pep band and sick of getting drowned out by the trumpets? Do you need to cut through a rock band on alto? Say hi to your new friend. Once you get used to the large tip opening, you can put a ton of air through your horn and really scream on this piece. Better workmanship on this than on the modern Dukoff pieces. Includes original box, ligature and cap.

    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.


  • Meyer New York USA Tenor 5M Medium Chamber MPC247

    $ 400

    This is a near mint example of a New York USA Meyer tenor mouthpiece. It has beautiful facing work, thin rails, and the tip measures .075″. It’s a flexible, clean-sounding do-it-all tenor mouthpiece that you can use for all kinds of playing. It’s easy to play and responsive, medium between dark and bright. Fun to play! Plus you hardly ever see them this nice or in the original box like this!

    Otto Link Reso Chamber Tenor Mouthpiece 5* Excellent! MPC246

    This is probably the nicest Reso tenor piece I have had for sale. It’s an original 5* facing measuring .065″ so smaller than a modern 5. It has a beautiful original facing that is a good example to show someone of what original Link facing looked like. Smooth, cloudy looking rails fading into curved striations in the middle of the table, and staying soft and cloudy looking to the end of the table. Perfection! This piece includes the original and desirable T-stamped Otto Link ligature in similarly great shape.

    Phil-Tone Solstice Alto like M.C. Gregory 6 tip .078″ MPC265

    $ 275

    I think that the vintage Meyer Bros and M.C. Gregory alto mouthpieces are probably the best playing alto mouthpieces ever made. There are lots of Meyer-inspired pieces, but not many MC Gregory-inspired ones. This piece, made by hand by Phil Engleman of Phil-Tone Custom Woodwinds is modeled on the M.C. Gregory Model A alto mouthpiece that got Paul Desmond that signature “dry martini sound.” To do it the Desmond way would require a smaller tip opening than this and a stiff reed, but you can still get a similar tone and a lot more volume than Desmond on this piece.

    Runyon C Melody Mouthpiece! 8 .095″ MPC252

    $ 120

    This is a cool piece that I have not seen before. It turns your C melody into a more projecting jazz machine, but it still tunes well and is fun to play. The chamber is medium with a squeeze throat, which gives the tone some sizzle and projection. The tip opening is an 8 and measures .095″. It feels like a tenor mouthpiece to play, but it uses alto reeds. This piece is in great shape and has not been used much.


  • Selmer Soloist (Modern) Alto D .074″ MPC267

    $ 125

    The Selmer Soloist is a go-to mouthpiece for saxophone study, and works well for classical or section playing. It has a small horse shoe-shaped chamber and produces a tone that is dark and focused, and that projects more at higher volumes. This is the modern version of the Soloist, not a vintage piece, though they look and play pretty much the same as far as I am concerned. It measures .074″ which is only slightly more open than a Meyer 5. This is a good all-around alto piece for a variety of settings. It has no damage and minimal wear and includes a ligature and cap.


  • Selmer Soloist Short Shank C* Alto MPC262

    $ 350

    This completes your set with a 5-digit Selmer Mark VI alto, or works well for classical alto or even jazz if you push it. This is an original mouthpiece from a Selmer Mark VI alto with the shorter shank design that you see in the 1950’s. It is stamped C* and measures .070,” which is comfortable for alto.


  • Selmer Soloist Style C* Tenor Beats S80! MPC257

    $ 165

    If you have been told by your band director that you have to buy a Selmer S80 C* Tenor mouthpiece for band class, my advice is to buy this instead, and you will get a better mouthpiece while remaining in your band director’s good graces. The Soloist pieces are the older and better precursors to the S80 mouthpieces, and they play much better.

    Sigurd Rascher Alto MPC258

    $ 99

    This is a mouthpiece that Sigurd Rascher asked Buescher to keep making after they changed their mouthpiece design at one point. It is still findable today, and here is a very nice example of one that is totally original. If you want a nice Rascher mouthpiece, here you go.

    Vandoren V16 A6 S Alto .077″ 6 tip MPC266

    $ 89

    The Vandoren V16 alto piece is a clean-sounding, dependable lead alto mouthpiece. It has a small chamber for added projection, and enough of a baffle to give you some edge. You can play jazz on this, or even a more commercial-oriented smooth jazz type of sound, depending on your playing style. Always reliably faced well, these pieces are easy to play. This one is in excellent condition and looks nearly new. There is no tooth wear under the Vandoren tooth guard by the way. Tip measures .077″ which is like a Meyer 6.


  • 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.
