    Default Fauconier Hand Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece

    I received this mouthpiece when I bought a Selmer Pennsylvania Special Alto around 4-5 years ago. I now use a Meyer Ebonite mouthpiece and this mouthpiece has been relegated to a cupboard. I thought I would search about it on Google but not a single thing came up. Can anyone tell me about it? Thanks in advance, Ben1484216635247-465716808.jpg

    Lelandais made, in all probability, made for a Belgian brand or shop E.N. Fauconnier Fournisseur De Lí Armee et des Conservatoire Rue Charles Quint 35 Gand . Lelandais was one of the most prolific brands stenciling mouthpieces for many, many, brands.

    Life is just a bowl... some have cherries in it, some donít. Those who have the cherries arenít likely to share them though.

    Is it particularly rare?

    Lelandais ( as written before) was a very prolific maker, so, not rare as such, the fact that it has the name of an obscure shop printed on it makes it more unique but unique, in this case, doesnít equal to desirable, therefore it is not particularly valuable.

    It is a good piece but nothing to write home about.
