Vintage Gale Hollywood – Script Logo
This is a vintage Gale Hollywood 5M hard rubber mouthpiece for alto saxophone. These old pieces were made with larger inner chambers and are warmer players. This one in particular has a focused and direct sonic character to the way it plays. These pieces are reminiscent of the tight and dark sound produced by vintage Gregory mouthpieces. 
 
This one is in nice physical condition around the outer body, beak, shank and shank ring. If you look very carefully there is a small imperfection above the tip rail. 
 
I wish we had more of these coming through the shop. Due to this mouthpieces small tip opening it plays best with heavier reeds. 
 
The tip opening on this mouthpiece is .065”.
 
The tip opening measures .065” so the mouthpiece does perform best with heavier reeds.
