Mouthpiece Cafe Espresso Alto – 7 – includes Francois Louis Ligature
The Mouthpiece Cafe mouthpieces are designed and made by the “Mouthpiece Guys”, Erik Greiffenhagen and Brian Powell.
These Espresso mouthpieces are their tribute to the the vintage Selmer Short Shank mouthpieces.
I measure the tip openings as follows:
7 – 0.084 inches
If you go to eBay and search for “selmer short shank alto” you will likely find the larger tip opening mouthpieces (D, E, F) going for around $500.
These Espresso mouthpieces have a rollover baffle behind the tip which give the mouthpieces their unique tone/timbre, a balance of core sound and projection.
If you try ordering these from Mouthpiece Cafe, they are usually four, five or more weeks lead time.
This item include the Francois Louis “Ultimate” ligature shown.
The price $250…that does not include shipping
