Bob Boy - .115
This is a nice Bob Mintzer Bop Boy 8* made by Rafael Navarro in an 8*. The piece was recently worked on by mouthpiece tech Norbert Stachel.  As a player it is very akin to the vintage Otto Link slant signatures and Brilhart hard rubber pieces. This one has a warm center to it and crystal clear projection. In comparison to the metal Bop Boy pieces the hard rubber model is a little more free blowing while featuring very quick air intake. 
This piece is in very good physical condition and was well looked after by the last owner. The outer body, beak and shank are all in great shape. Its facing profile is is very clean regarding the condition of the table, side rails and tip. The Bop Boy is constructed with a medium large inner chamber with a wide open throat and rounded inner side walls. It also has a very subtle and deep rolled baffle.
The tip opening on this mouthpiece measures .115”.
