Huge Sound - MINT CONDITION
Here we have new old-stock of a RIA 9* in hard rubber for soprano saxophone, tip opening 0.095-inch/2.41 mm. This piece is in amazing condition and has barely any markings on it, while still retaining the protective plastic from when it was distributed.
 
RIA pieces were manufactured in Italy, and designed similarly to a Berg Larsen mouthpiece with bullet chambers and flat raised baffles. The combination of flat sidewalls, the baffle and the tip opening, this piece projects a very nice balanced tone that doesn't possess too much edge.
 
This piece is in pristine condition with its protective plastic still on top of the engraving. The side rails, rail tip, and table are in their original state, perfectly flat and smooth with no divots or dings. The chamber is round and follows the circular contour of the piece's exterior, allowing for more warmth and complexity to the tone.
 
Players looking for an absolutely fresh piece to project to the back of the house in a big theater would enjoy this piece greatly. The tone isn't too far in either direction, bright or dark, and you really can retain your own personality inside this piece's sound.
 
This mouthpiece ships in its current condition with a rovner ligature and no mouthpiece cap.
