Meyer 5 Small Chamber for Tenor
This is a vintage Meyer New York USA 5M with a small chamber for tenor saxophone. The tenor version of the New York Meyer are not as commonly seen as the alto pieces but they are a great choice for straight ahead jazz. They feature a medium inner chamber with an wide open throat and rounded inner side walls. This one measures as a true original 5 at .080”. As it is a smaller opening it does play best with a heavier reed. This is a very colorful mouthpiece and it showcases a lot of control and projection as well. 
The outer body, beak and shank of the mouthpiece are in very good condition. The table and side rails are both very clean. This piece does have a wear spot on one side below the tip rail. ( picture 4&5 ) If you are into playing heavier reeds or smaller openings on tenor this is one of the more colorful vintage pieces out there.
