Big, dark sound.
Here is a nice Santy Runyon Stainless model Alto Sax mouthpiece. It bears no tip stamp, but measures close to a Runyon 6 at .079"/2.01mm. Billed as being the only piece hand finished by Santy Runyon himself, the Stainless model was Runon Product's top-of-the-line mouthpiece at the time. It's machined from stainless steel, features a hard rubber bite plate, and has a Teflon coating inside the chamber.
 
There is a pronounced roll to the baffle which leads into a flat floor. The floor and straight side walls flow into a medium round chamber. The condition of the table, tip, and rails are in nice, original hand-finished condition with only the tiniest ding on the table well back from the window.
 
This mouthpiece plays with plenty of warmth with a round-dark sound. It is in no way stuffy, though, and projects nicely with crisp, defined articulation. It would sit well as a section player's piece as it is easy enough to blend with a section and locks into pitch very nicely. 
 
Ligature and mouthpiece cap not included.
