Photo of the Selmer Alto Sax mouthpieces I happen to have in stock as of this writing. I include the Mouthpiece Cafe inspired “Espresso” mouthpieces: I have a great selection of other alto mouthpieces, tenor sax mouthpieces, bari sax mouthpieces, soprano sax mouthpieces and clarinet mouthpieces.
As of this writing (July 2016), I have two extremely nice Selmer Soloist short shank alto mouthpieces, refaced by Brian Powell (Mouthpiece Guys, Mouthpiece Cafe) available. Easiest to use the search function in the upper right corner if you want to see ’em.
Berg Larsen mouthpieces ship with a ligature, but some players don’t like them or they are lost/destroyed. What is a good replacement for a Berg Larsen Metal tenor? The Francois Louis Ultimate Small Tenor ligature works well. it is shown in the first 8 photos below. I am sure that there are a few Rovner […]
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about Selmer mouthpieces looking different. And it has been exasperatingly hard to find photos of the new mouthpieces. Manufacturers spend untold amounts of money to produce these mouthpieces and then neglect to market them. And by market them, I mean provide even the most basic photos of them. […]
Here’s just a few of the tenor mouthpieces I have in stock: Otto Link Tone Edge (Hard Rubber) modern production “Vintage” – 6*, 7, 7*, 8 and 8* Otto Link Super Tone Master – NY (larger chamber) gold-plated brass: – 7*, 8, 8* and 9 Otto Link RG – Metal and Hard rubber Vandoren V16 […]
You know how comedians, like Seinfield and many others, start out their monologues: “Didja ever wonder….” and then they start some rant? Didja ever wonder how mouthpiece manufacturers measure tip openings? I needed to get a bari sax mouthpiece with a lot of projection, but a small tip opening, so I wanted to order a […]
I was having trouble finding a facing chart for Anello mouthpieces. I found the following on my hard drive. But it is just partial. If you have something more complete, I would love to see it. Here’s an Anello XOR alto I sold. And I just sold an Anello bari sax “OR” but maybe never […]
This vintage mouthpiece is marked 100-2-M. I measure the tip open to be 0.100″. I measure the facing length to be 25mm. That 25mm seems none too long for a Berg bari marked “M”. It shows signs of handcrafting. The facing numbers look they were each stamped on individually. Have you ever wondered why the […]
Pick-ups are essentially a microphone fitted into an instrument. With the Selmer Varitone they drilled a hole in the neck and installed the pick-up in the neck. Now…who wants a hole drilled in their sax neck? Anybody? Makes more sense to me to drill the hole in a mouthpiece. Probably not your favorite mouthpiece…save that […]
I looked all over for photos that show what sort of baffle the Jody Jazz Jet mouthpiece has, but I couldn’t find any. So…I had a Jet mouthpiece in the shop and took some pix which are below. The Jet has a high step baffle, like a Vandoren Jumbo Java. The Jumbo Java baffle is, […]
