HELP, I Want One!

Bop Boy 8
This is very nice and lightly played Bob Mintzer “Bop Boy” in an 8 by Rafael Navarro. The body of the piece is in very nice condition from top to bottom as is the black bite plate. It shows a little bit of standard cosmetic character but nothing serious. The facing profile of the table, side rails and tip is in excellent condition. Its tip opening measures a true 8 at .110”. 
The Bop Boy is build with a medium inner chamber and rounded inner side walls. It also features a long baffle with a subtle roll. These pieces are a nice modern alternative if you are looking for a vintage Super Tone Master vibe. This one plays with a colorful and ultra responsive sound. It does have a nice balance of positive resistance to lean into when needed. A great straight ahead jazz mouthpiece for tenor.
