New York Meyer 7m medium chamber alto mouthpiece , this piece was an original 7 NY Meyer, it comes with its original box, it was lightly refaced back to original specifications. After many decades of playing. This piece was played a lot, it was one of Joe Viola's mouthpieces, which is a good thing if you know who Joe was! In photo 4 above you can see a slight trace of the triangle on the table, it is low down to the shank, this is an early NYUSA with the curved inner side walls.
084, which was what it measured originally, it was restored back to its former glory with extremely nice work by Erik Greiffenhagen, this included flattening the table, restoring the proper NY facing curve and cleaning up the tip. There is a tooth mark on the bite plate, which is quite smooth to the touch and poses no problems at all for playing with or without a patch.
I took the patch off for the photos. The larger tipped NY Meyers offer a bit more volume and meat in the tone, which can be useful for dealing with loud big bands and electric guitars. This is a very nice playing Meyer.
With a 2 1/2 Java green reed, it blows much like a Meyer with a 5 tip and a 3 1/2 reed, it is very free blowing and has a big vibrant sound.
