Selmer Soloist Bari Sax Mouthpiece – Refaced by Ralph Morgan
Refaced by Ralph Morgan in Jan. 2002, per the inscription as seen in the photos.
I measure the tip opening at 0.098”. Inscribed as 2.41mm which converts to 0.095 inches, but I measure it slightly larger. A normal Selmer C* bari sax mouthpiece is, according to the chart I am looking at, is typically 0.079″. At 0.095″, this would be more accurately be described as a “F” opening.
The word “Soloist” appears nowhere on the mouthpiece, so this may have originally been a so-called “Soloist Style” mouthpiece. Or…the “Soloist” inscription may have been removed when the mouthpiece was refaced. In any event it has the scroll shank.
When the tip was opened up, the floor or baffle was effectively heightened. Archway window shows higher floor. The baffle and larger tip opening increases the potential projection of this mouthpiece. Excellent balance.
The tip rail and side rails are in great condition. One photo accidentally shows a thread or fiber, not a crack. There is some toothwear to the beak (beak of the “bec”), but not a groove. See the photos.
