42 7* Hard Rubber Tenor Sax Mouthpiece by James Bunte
James Bunte 42 for Tenor Sax
This is a used “42” mouthpiece for tenor sax by James Bunte. The mouthpiece has been used in the past but is in great shape. Its body, beak and shank are all in great shape. The facing profile of the table, tip and side rails is also in nice original condition.
The 42 plays with a warm sonority, rich in color and overtones. The projection of the 42 is also quite exceptional due to the quality of the inner baffle and chamber. They are built with modern, reed friendly facings, medium-large chambers and a hand finished baffle for improved projection. In comparison to the Otto Link hard rubber mouthpieces the inner chamber of the 42 is just a little bit smaller to allow for improved control and sonic clarity. The hand finished baffle of the 42 is inspired by the clam shell baffle you see on the late Florida and Early Babbitt vintage Otto Link mouthpieces.
The tip opening on this mouthpiece is .105”
