Vintage Jazz Delight
This is a Gold-plated brass Runyon tenor sax mouthpiece. It is stamped M over 8 and its tip measures .096"/2.44mmm which sits right between Runyon's 8 and 9. The mouthpiece is in good overall condition with minor scuffing and very light plating wear. The table, tip, and rails are perfect, but the very tip of the hard rubber bite plate has a bit of damage.
 
The inside of the mouthpiece sees a rollover baffle flow onto a medium wedge baffle terminating into a medium bullet chamber. Sonically, it tends dark at low dynamics but really brightens up as you push it. It speaks quickly and projects well. It's the classic jazz tenor sound.
 
No mouthpiece cap or ligature included.
