New Old-Stock RIA Italy 4* Metal Mouthpiece in Silver Plate for Baritone Sax - 0.084-Inch/2.13mm
RIA ITALY NOS - Bright, Edgy, Berg Style
Here we have a new old-stock, RIA Italy 4* metal mouthpiece for bari sax with a tip opening of 0.084-inch/2.13 mm. This piece has been played only a few times and shows very light cosmetic marks from the ligature on the top and sides of the exterior, while everything else that remains is in pristine condition.
These RIA pieces resemble Berg Larsen designs with a raised flat baffle, a bullet chamber, flat side walls, and a nice long 55 mm facing length. This one plays on the bright side, even with the small tip opening. Even with the simple design, this piece is rich with overtones and projects very nicely.
This piece has a cutting tone that hearkens back to the great Berg Larsen pieces bands like Tower of Power are known for using. Funk, rock, blues, are some music genres this piece would fit right in with, but who's to say it couldn't fit into more?
This mouthpiece ships with its original box, mouthpiece cap, ligature, and a plush mouthpiece bag.
