NOS - Big Fat Sound - Not Too Bright
Here is a new old-stock RIA Italy 8* metal mouthpiece for soprano sax, plated in silver. This mouthpiece has not been played, or even removed from its original packaging, it's stamped as an 8+ on the box, and you can see through the plastic protective wrapping that there is in fact a * where you would expect one to be engraved. Tip openings with RIA pieces are generally very wide compared to Otto Link sizes.
 
These RIA mouthpieces are very free blowing, project a ton, but don't put out too much brightness and remain balanced tonally. The baffle is flat, but raised, and the chamber is a rounded bullet chamber just like you would see in a Berg Larsen. The side walls are also straight, and tapered inward towards the throat for more efficient use of your air. The rails, table, and rail tip have never been touched, so they have their original concentric circle milling marks.
 
If you're a professional player needing extra power on stage, take this mouthpiece into consideration. This piece ships as-is with original ligature and mouthpiece cap.
