    Default FS: 7 Vintage Alto/Tenor Mouthpieces (4***, Slant, Selmer, Meyer and more!)

    Some fantastic vintage and rare alto and tenor mouthpieces for sale today.
    All prices are in USD and ship from Toronto, Canada.
    Prices do not include shipping, buyer pays shipping.
    All have been played with tooth patches.

    TENOR:

    T1: Otto Link Four Star (4****) Adam Niewood reface to 6
    Original plating looks quite good and the original bite plate is in perfect condition. Originally a stamped 3 tip, it was refaced by Adam Niewood to a 6 tip and he stamped the table '6'. It's a fantastic player with a masterful reface, and is in great overall condition considering this piece is over 80 years old. $300

    T2: Lebayle Wood 8
    This piece is presumably from the early years of Lebayle making these wooden pieces. Its a phenomenal player, and has a beautiful dark, smooth and lush tone to it. It looks almost brand new and has the original 8 facing. Beautiful dark wood. $200

    T3: Vintage 60s/70s Selmer Metal Scroll Shank - RARE original F facing
    In good condition for its age, and has the original facing. Often see these metal selmers of this vintage in C or C* tips but its very hard to find an original stamped F. Plays great, and features the early Selmer circular chamber. $175

    ALTO:

    A1: Otto Link Slant Signature NY Eburnated Bar
    Original 3 tip, and is in remarkably good condition for its age. Much of the original white lettering is intact and the rubber has barely any discolouration - its quite minty. A fantastic, and original large chamber alto mouthpiece that plays very well as is but could also be a perfect candidate to send to your favourite refacer. $200

    A2: RARE Early Beechler Pre-Diamond Dot - Sebastian Knox reface
    This piece is very cool and extremely rare. It is if not the first, one of the first models that Beechler made. You would be very hard pressed to find another one out there, let alone one that is in as good shape as this one is in and has such a fantastic reface on it. Originally a 5S facing, now measures .087. This piece is a perfect example of just how good these early beechlers are, and they have tons of power and energy. Think Earl Bostic with this one. $150

    A3: Selmer Airflow (Pre-Soloist) C* - with original 50s Selmer ligature and cap!
    Great original piece. Plays very well as is but could also be a perfect candidate to send to your favourite refacer. Comes with the original 1950s Selmer ligature and cap, and its very hard to find these mouthpieces these days complete with their original lig and cap. These models would have come brand new with the Selmer SBA horns when they first came out. $200

    A4: Older Meyer Small Chamber refaced to a 6
    Great playing small chamber piece that was originally a 5 and was refaced to a 6. Not sure who the work was done by, but it plays really well. Its an older meyer, possibly an Early Babbitt, and is full sounding and punchy like a great meyer should be. Measures right on the dot at .075. $100

    Again, all prices are in USD. Pm me with your email for pictures, lots available. No trades.
    Pm me with any questions or if you want additional info on any specific pieces

    Can't seem to edit a slight mistake, A3 (the Selmer Airflow) is a stamped C facing and not a C*

    A2 the Beechler sure looks like a Lakey to me, what is the back story?

    Well I'm not really too sure of the story of the piece, but all I know is that it's a very early model. You are right, some characteristics of the piece are similar to a lakey such as the bite plate and chamber shape, so they could have possibly been using a similar mold back in the day. But I really have no idea of it's history and I've only ever seen 2 or 3 others of these out there, it's a phenomenal playing piece - that's what I do know!

    Here you go
    (Also for those who may wonder, that line on the baffle is purely cosmetic)

    Thanks JMC. The tip rail and the small roll-over baffle look really fantastic.

    I'm tempted myself, but I also made myself a promise to not put more money in my very big collection (see the link in my signature) than I already have done (but trades are possible)!
