NEW Aaron Drake Jazz 7 (.085") with Ligature, Cap, Pouch and Case - $270
From Aaron Drake: "You will find this model offers great projection. The rollover baffle and carefully calculated floor slope promote an optimal projection. Just the right amount of undercutting on the side walls with a medium chamber."
NEW Morgan Jazz 6 NY (.075") with Ligature, Cap and Pouch - $289
Fantastic handmade hard rubber pieces in the style of the vintage New York Meyer.
New Morgan 7L (.080") with new Rover Light Lig & Cap - $269
Here is an excellent handmade hard rubber piece with a very dark and warm sound. If you put a lot of air into the mouthpiece and like a big open, neutral-to-dark mouthpiece, this is about as good as it gets. Tip opening measures .080"
NEW D'Addario Reserve D150 (.059") - $145
This is D'Addario's new classical piece in a 1.5mm (.059") tip opening and medium-long facing. This is a nice dark piece that's very easy to play, quite a bit darker than your typical old C*.
NEW Vandoren Optimum AL5 (.066") - $115
If you're looking for a new classical mouthpiece, the Optimum should definitely be on your list. It is quite dark and very easy to play. This one has a tip opening of .066" and is the largest of the Optimum line and has a medium-long facing length. These have really nice flat tables and very accurate machining.
NEW Meyer 7 Small Chamber with Cap and Ligature - $125
If you love Meyers but always wanted something a hair brighter and more powerful than the standard medium chamber, this is the perfect thing for you.
Theo Wanne NY Bros 7 (.080") Mint Condition - $255
Here is a really great NY Meyer copy from Theo. Tip opening measures .080" and blows very easily.
USED Morgan 6M (.075") - $200
These are killer players, one of the best alto mouthpieces out there, lots of power and focus and plenty of brightness when you want it.
Used Claude Lakey 6*3 (.085") - $65
This was my main alto piece for a while. It's very powerful but easy to control, bright but not too bright. There is usually a depression in the beak where the white bite plate goes but I removed the plate, filled in the depression with epoxy to make it flush with the beak and put on a BG patch. I find it much more comfortable this way. This is a killer lead alto piece!
SOLD - JodyJazz DV 7 Alto with Rico H Lig and Cap
These play really easily with particularly low resistance in all registers. It has lots of power and brightness but is not nearly as bright as it looks. It has a pretty balanced spectrum of lows, mids, and highs. There is no damage and the rails and tip are particularly nice. It is very reed-friendly. The tip opening measures .085" which seems a little big but it really plays as easily as a 5 or 6 in most other mouthpieces. Jody says that most people will use a harder reed or a bigger tip opening when switching to the DV and I would agree with that 100%.
SOLD - Theo Wanne Gaia2 8 Mint with Ligature and Cap
This is the new 2nd generation Gaia2 which seems to be darker than the original Gaia. It's in mint condition and includes the original Wanne Enlightened Ligature and reed replacer cap, leather pouch and box. I just installed a brand new Wanne bite pad too. This is a great player!
SOLD - "The Bird Mouthpiece!" Original Great Neck NY Vintage Brilhart Streamline Tonalin Alto with Original 3-Band Ligature and Cap! 5-Digit Serial Number, Measures .075"
This is a very special and rare collectible piece! This is the mouthpiece that Charlie Parker was known for playing most often. This one is stamped 2* but as usual, the stamped number means nothing with most Brilharts. It measures .075", about the equivalent of a modern Meyer 6. There is no damage, no cracks, and the tip and rails are perfect. This is from the Great Neck NY period and has a 5-digit serial number. The Streamline pieces from this era did not have the Great Neck stamp like their non-Streamline counterparts. These are very similar to the regular Tonalin pieces from this period except the body and inner chamber are slightly thinner and narrower which gives a bit more focus to the sound. This is a very strong player and is extremely rare and collectible. That is the original ligature and cap for this Streamline.
