This is a vintage hard rubber Berg Larsen 120/0/M tenor sax mouthpiece in excellent playing condition. This is a super playing mouthpiece, very responsive up and down the register. The beak, rails tip and table are all original and in excellent condition. This one responds best with a slightly softer reed….strength 2 to 3. The sound is penetrating; full and warm (never thin) while being slightly brighter than the lower baffle Bergs. This one has the regular bullet chamber and is made of a more dense and pure rubber compound than the current production Bergs. I would date this piece to the early 1970s. For its age, it is in amazing condition.

This custom vintage Berg is bigger down low than most Bergs and excellent in the altissimo. Next to Otto Link, Berg Larsen has always been the most common choice of great jazz/rock tenor players. Sonny Rollins, Lenny Pickett and Charles Lloyd are a few legends who play Berg Larsen. In fact, Sonny Rollins plays a 130/2/m currently. As I am sure many of you know, modern Bergs are “hit and miss” in finding a good one.



As an experienced saxophone player, I will answer all questions thoroughly and promptly. Winning bidder to pay for item within three days of auction close. Buyer to pay shipping via method of their choice.
