Never Owned and Barely Played
Here we have a pristine condition new old stock hard rubber RIA 9* for soprano saxophone, tip opening 0.104-inch/2.64 mm. These RIA pieces were made back in the 90s and are known for their free blowing properties. This one is in a massive tip opening for extra projection while remaining balanced in terms of brightness.
 
One could very easily draw the conclusion that this piece is modeled after a Berg Larsen. The baffle is raised and flat, leading to a bullet rounded chamber. Tonally, this piece plays much darker than you would expect from the looks of the baffle. The combo of the side walls, raised baffle, and tip opening allow this piece to project and take an immense amount of air.
 
Luckily, this piece has only been played a handful of times, so there are very few topographical blemishes and virtually no oxidation. There are a few ligature scratches on the top, and the engraving paint is fully intact still. The side rails, rail tip, and table are all in 100% perfect condition. This piece ships with the original two-screw ligature, and mouthpiece cap.
