Vintage Hard Rubber Fat Body 'Dill Pickle' Bari Sax Mouthpiece

This is a vintage large body “dill pickle” bari sax mouthpiece. This piece has no markings on it whatsoever, but is one of the fat body hard rubber pieces popular in the early third of the 20th century. It shows some oxidation of the hard rubber around its base, but only light surface scratching as wear. The tip is original and in great shape, measuring .080”. It is slim as was the custom of the day, but there is plenty of room there if you'd like to have it opened up later. With its large round chamber, this piece plays with a decidedly dark sound.
