Check out my other items. Be sure to add me to your favorites list. T his listing is for a CE Winds brand alto saxophone mouthpiece. CE winds is a company that made a big splash in the market (maybe 6 or 7 years ago, to the best of my recollection), but then kind of disappeared off the face of the earth.Never-the-less, a quick google search reveals there are still some serious fans of their products, particularly their mouthpieces. This is a "Five Spot" model, a reference to the famous New York jazz club of the same name. Apparently it is modeled after the vintage New York Meyer bros model. It is etched 8M on the bottom of the shank. It has a medium round chamber, and scooped inner side walls. The tip opening is a healthy. 085, which is fair bit larger than most vintage Meyers would have been. It is roughly equal to a modern Meyer #8. I'm not entirely sure what the material of this piece is.
I think they had done something with rubber combined with metal flake (or something like that), but I haven't found any definitive info on that. The mouthpiece appears light brown in color, but I don't think it is discolored. I think it was made that way. This mouthpiece is also etched "Handmade in the USA" on one side, and "Made Especially For: Mark" on the other.I'm guessing that Mark might well be Mark Wigginton, president of the company. What I'm not sure of is who actually made this mouthpiece! Lastly, it also has a serial number #1425CF, also etched on the shank.
This mouthpiece is in excellent condition. The facing is perfectly smooth. There are no tooth indentations on the beak. This mouthpiece has been cleaned/sanitized, so it is ready to play!
This is due to lack of available transportation ie. If this potential wait presents a problem for you, please refrain from purchasing at this time. I sincerely apologize for this, unfortunately unavoidable, inconvenience.
