HOLTON METAL TABLE SOPRANO SAXOPHONE MOUTHPICE
This is a rare American made vintage mouthpiece, probably from the 1920's. Like all vintage mouthpieces that have original facings, it is somewhat closed, but it is a lot different from any vintage mouthpiece I have tried.
What makes it so different is the metal table with a composite (hard rubber) body. The metal table really opens up the sound, and if you are looking for a vintage mouthpiece with lots of power and some edge, this is it.
The tips, rails, and table on it are in excellent shape as you can see in my photos. It plays great.
The facing on it looks original. I am unable to measure the tip opening but I think it is probably what would be known as a 3 or 4 today. Of course to really play it you should use a fairly stiff reed. Vandoren 3's seemed to work best for me.
There is some information about this mouthpiece at:
It is a really nice mouthpiece, a bit of a collector's item, and has a great tone.
I will ship outside of the USA to countries other than Italy and Nigeria.
If you have the winning bid, I will need you to pay within 48 hours. After 48 hours I will have the option of giving another bidder a second chance offer.
