HELP, I Want One!

A Runyon Standard
If you're looking for a vintage mouthpiece with easy tone production and good intonation with vintage American saxes, consider this Runyon! Sharing the same body as the Conn Comet mouthpice, this was designed and manufactured by Santy Runyon for Conn in the 1950s, these streamlined mouthpieces tune well on vintage horns. They're easy to play with a thick-sounding low end, general warmth to the timbre, but with a bit of edge thanks to a strong amount of high-frequency harmonics. 
This mouthpiece for tenor is made of black plastic and has a raised 7 opening which measures .087"/2.21mm. It plays at its best with a medium-firm to firm reed. The body has minor scuffing, but the table, tip, and rails are immaculate. There are no gouges or significant bite marks. The shank is uncracked with no signs of fracturing.
No mouthpiece cap or ligature are included.
