This is a #8 (0.085) facing. Made of gold-plated brass, it features a slight bullet chamber shape, with a flawless rollover baffle, and thin side rails.
It plays efficiently, with a medium-bright tone. Its jazzy, its classy, sassy, but it can also get down and dirty!Its just about the most powerful straight-ahead jazz mouthpiece you will ever play. Ive had great luck with Vandoren JAVA and red JAVA 2.5 strength reeds, although the RICO Jazz Select 2H/3S work well too. Lets be clear- I dont want to sell this mouthpiece.
This is a rare gem of a mouthpiece, and it has sentimental value for me, because Charles was a dear friend. Recent car repairs have depleted my savings, and I have to do what I have to do. I have tons of examples, and love sharing them.The mouthpiece will be meticulously packaged for the utmost protection. Good luck, and happy saxophoning!
