This is a hard to come by Meyer Bros New York 2M metal alto mouthpiece in exceptional original condition. It is bare brass. It is really free of any defects worth noting. The original facing has a fine grained appearance on the table and all the way out the rails- it is essentially perfect. Likewise the interior, with its deeply concave walls, is in similarly fine condition. The facing curve breaks at 40 and the tip measures right at .060'', making it equivalent to a modern 3. There's a large amount of material at the tip should you wish to have this opened. For such a close mouthpiece it plays pretty well- very nice articulation and a pleasantly middy sound with a bit of highs in it; because of its closeness it doesn't speak too well at the bottom, and of course altissimo is a little touchy (though doable). The original cap is excellent as is the original slip-on ligature, which is stamped with a little arrow to orient it the right way when putting it on.
INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Because of the high value of this mouthpiece, shipping will be by USPO Express Mail, insured to the full extent possible and declared at sale price. Only if Express service is not available to your location will I use Priority, and failing that availability, 1st Class.
