The Big Band Punch

This Runyon XL mouthpiece for tenor sax is made of delrin and lacks a size stamp. Its tip measures .091"/2.31mm which is about a Runyon 7.  The body of the mouthpiece  is structurally in good condition though it does have some scuffs on the shank and ligature marks on the body. The table, tip, and rails are flawless. 

Internally, this is one of the more curious mouthpieces to come through the shop. The baffle is quite high just past the tip, but about 15mm in, it suddenly drops into a very low floor. The sidewalls are flat with a secondary sidewall shelf that runs the length of the baffle drop. The chamber is a medium-small round configuration.

The mouthpiece responds well throught the entire range of the instrument with a warm, but punchy sound. Push it hard and you'll get a bit of high-harmonic distortion that can cut through for a strong solo sound. This would be a great piece for the lead tenor spot in a big band. Good for the section, good for the solo.

No mouthpiece cap or ligature are included.
