HELP, I Want One!

A Jazz Classic
This is a very nice vintage Arnold Brilhart Ebolin 2 from the Great Neck New York period, serial number 32951. The mouthpiece is in godo shape for its vintage. Its white bite plate is in great shape and does not have any tooth indentations. Its outer body and shank are also in good shape with the mninor scuffing expected of a vintage mouthpiece. This piece does not show any cracking or past crack repair. The facing profile regarding the table, tip and side rails is excellent. 
Though marked as a 2 opening, this actually measures .076"/1.93mm which is closer to a Brilhart 4. With a firm reed, this mouthpiece plays excellently. The overall timbre is complex. At low dynamnics, you'll get a smoky, warm tone, but push the volume up and you'll dip into a good amount of projection with a slight edge to it. This is a real classic jazz mouthpiece.
No ligature or cap are included.
