AMAZING CONDITION Vintage Mouthpiece
Pictured above is a vintage Selmer scroll-shank C** mouthpiece for soprano saxophone with a tip opening of .053 inch/1.34 mm. These mouthpieces were included with all Selmer soprano purchases throughout the 1960s, and thus are legendary in their own right. Physically, this mouthpiece is in immaculate condition for its age, all the original paint is present, the scroll engraving is crisp as the day it was made, and the hard rubber has not begun to oxidize at all. The table, side rails, and rail tip are all doing well with few imperfections to speak of, only a few indentations on the side that don't affect how this piece plays.
Internally you will find a graceful roll-tip baffle leading to a rounded chamber, giving this mouthpiece a bit of presence while maintaining a rich tone that isn't piercing. The side walls are semi-rounded and ease all of your air towards the throat evenly in all directions.
This piece is great for an experienced player playing jazz or classical as the baffle shape allows for more character while the tip opening keeps the sound under control. This piece ships with a ligature but no mouthpiece cap.
