Nice older (1980’s?) USA Meyer 6M alto piece in a comfortable tip opening for jazz or lead alto in a big band. Better quality than the ones made today. The Meyer is the standard by which other alto pieces are described, and a good Meyer like this is a great starting point for any player who isn’t sure what to get. If you’re a newer player, you might look for a 4 or 5 tip, or use this 6 tip with a softer reed. The tone is warm, full-bodied, and has enough zing to let you play tunes with a pleasant amount of projection and tone but without sounding at all shrill. It’s a good happy medium, and you can take it in many different directions tonally with practice. That’s probably part of why Meyers are historically so popular.
