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. Think Gene Ammons kind of warmth. (Ammons played a similar piece.) You might also like to buy an Echobrass ligature to go with this and complete the set.
