Very rare classic 1950's Selmer alto mouthpiece in highly desirable tip opening and chamber. This is a vintage Selmer short shank "Soloist" alto mouthpiece, tip opening E. It is the version with the sought after horseshoe chamber. Selmer ligature and cap seem to be from the same era. The mouthpiece made its journey through time unaltered, everything about it is original.There are some slight scratches from the ligature on the back of the mouthpiece. I always played it with a mouthpiece patch, but there are some bite marks from previous player(s). I owned it for about 15 years now. The mouthpiece has now the rich patina and discolouring consistent with its age.
Ligature and cap have tarnished consistent with their age. These mouthpiece are and have been enjoyed by classical and jazz players.It is a valuable piece and the fixed price does reflect this. So keep an eye out for my listings in the coming weeks.
