NOS - Big Fat Sound - Not Too Bright
Pictured above is a new old-stock RIA Italy 9* soprano sax mouthpiece in hard rubber, tip opening 0.104 inch/2.64 mm. These soprano pieces resemble a Berg Larsen style with an enlarged window and a shallow angle to the baffle. Even though it is similar construction to a Berg, it does not play as bright, which at a 9* is uncommon. The baffle and side walls are flat and straight, leading to a bullet style chamber that gives this piece a lot of body for a soprano piece with such a high baffle.
 
Physically, this piece is in amazing condition as it has never been owned. Only the beak has very light markings from teeth as the only blemish across the entire piece! The cap and ligature are in perfect condition as well. All the original engraving paint is still present.
 
Players looking for a powerful, loud piece that gives you that extra presence on stage, this piece is for you. Keep in mind this RIA 9* is wider than an Otto Link of the same number, you will need lighter reeds to get used to this piece, but you can get away with some Hemke 2.5s. This piece ships with its original ligature, mouthpiece cap, and box.
