RIFFAULT FRANCE Steelite Ebonite alto saxophone mouthpiece - NOS.
Round chamber with fairly straight side walls. Lots of hand finishing in the chamber and baffle. This mouthpiece has a larger chamber and more finishing than the IDEAL brand mouthpieces which were also made by Riffault.
R5 facing. Measures .065'' and facing length is 38-40.
Dark sound and solid core. Brightens when pushed and will get a nice traditional bebop edge. A versatile mouthpiece. I used one as my main piece for several years. I played both concert band and jazz combo with it. More resistant and more focused than the current Meyer.
The tip is quite thick and will support a refacing to a larger tip opening. Opening the mouthpiece will give you the chance to build in a higher rollover baffle if you want a brighter tone. But the mouthpieces plays well as it is.
