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.
