    Rico 1 + Berg + Hot sauce = Hot licks!! More reed shenanigans! Gotta stay entertained somehow... ...so I've got a whole box of Rico 1s and Vandoren Blue Box 5s from this and another video... I'm planning to make some more fun videos with these ridiculously hard and soft reeds, let me know if...

    Hi, I've been playing for 1 year on a Berg Larsen 110 2 sms mouthpiece on my baritone sax and I really love its sound and power (mostly played in brass band, rock ,funk). But there is a problem: I always break my reed after one or two hours of play. I use Vandoren red cut 3, I tryed 3 1/2 but...

    Hey SOTW, For the past 3 years or so I have been playing on a Metal Vandoren V16 T6 Large Chamber for a smaller jazz band in high school, and now for a big band in college. I've come to find as a player though that the T6 just isn't really doing it for me in cutting through the Trumpets, and...

    Hi! I'm recently bought a berg larsen metal 95/2 SMS and wonder if it could be vintage? I paid like 40$ so I just took a chance. I'm well aware that could just be a regular Berg Larsen and the bite plate is missing.

    I got this Berg Larsen Scoop Bill 115/2 Offset SMS and it seems to be hand finished, nice thin rails, some rust on the table but denim pattern visible under sanding job. It does not have any marking indicating to be refaced after market, is this possibly factory hand finished? Plays GREAT and...

    Yo. I’m playing a berg Larsen SMS 2 105 on a sa80. Is the MBII worth buying, I’m trying to get a more Michael Brecker feel to my tone and I know like that he didn’t use that and all that but what do you think?

    Last Year I bought an old soprano sax and there were a couple of soprano mouthpieces in the case. One of them is a Berg Larsen Hard Rubber 65 2 SMS. It is old and well-used, but the SMS is offset, so I am wondering if this is a vintage mouthpiece and whether it is worth much. (I prefer my PPT...

    Hi all, These are both Tenor MPC's. Questions regarding the Berg Larsen. - Is this an offset m model? - I read the vintage models ~50's have denim machining on the table which this one appears to have am I seeing this right? - I'm looking to sell and wanted to know what a good asking price...

    Has anyone tried a Landreth piece? Any thoughts? During a late night insomnia-induced ebay shopping trip a few weeks ago, I purchased a Landreth Modern Vintage 7* tenor mouthpiece. It still hasn't shipped yet and I haven't been able to find out much about them, so I'm wondering if anybody knows...

    Note:This list is not complete as there are some players like Coleman Hawkins and Arthur Prysock and older jazz players I didn't include because I was focusing more on brighter sounding guys into R&B, R&R and more out there jazz. Here are some ideas from famous Berg players. Check out their...

    I recently came into possession of a beuscher aristocrat for around £1400 GBP, including a mouthpiece and a large selection of reeds. The sax needs some work but I am confused about the mouthpiece. It was sold to me as a Berg Larsen but it is so old that all the markings and identifying labels...

    I have inherited this mouth piece, and know nothing about saxes or mp. It has (105 2 M )stamped on it. Any help with value etc. will be appreciated. Thanx, Jim

    I am in the market for a jazz mouthpiece but i need something that will play in tune on my 12m, and i would prefer something that could help me acheive a Gerry Mulligan like sound. Supposedly big chamber mpcs help with the intonation thing, and so i started looking. I have found a few on my...
  14. Reeds
    Hi there, I have a Berg Larsen metal 100/1 tenor mouthpiece that is refaced by Brian Powell. It sounds easier to player now (refaced to 0.101). It seals like crazy but at the same time I feel I like to have a bit more free blowing experience without reducing the strength of the reed when the...

    I was just curious if anyone knew what the facing was on the metal Berg that Pepper Adams played throughout most of his career. If it's out there somewhere in the forum or on the internet somewhere I can't seem to find it. I'd just really like to know.

    Hi Everyone, I'm looking at buying a metal mouthpiece for my tenor. I play a P. Mauriat 66RX Unlacquered. I am a little inexperienced in the field of metal mouthpieces as I'm coming from just a student hard rubber mouthpiece - I've been wanting to change for ages but never got around to it!! I...

    Strange question, I understand. Here's why I ask it: a little over a week ago, I purchased this Berg Larsen 105/3M tenor piece secondhand. Now, it's my understanding that the "3" indicates a lack of a baffle, with "0" being a very high baffle. Yet, looking into the mouthpiece, I see... well...

    Hi folks, I got that 110 / 3 / SMS Berg OFFSET from a friend. Could someone tell me how old is that Berg OFFSET? Is that a rare one or a more normal Berg that could be found at every corner? What´s your opinion on the size for tenor? I searched the forum and the web, but I could not find any...

    In a possible trade I received this Berg Larsen for Amanda to test. Before I hand it over I gave the piece a once-over. The 'seller' stated "I just had Matt marantz look at it last week. He said looks original." Here are pictures of the piece. Does this look 'original'??
