    I've just bought a Selmer Super Sax baritone (1930) in very good shape; with it came a Berg 100 2 SMS 'piece that really looks more like plastic than HR - did Berg use this material or is just very smooth HR? It has the milled finish and a bullet chamber... Any advice appreciated!
  3. Bb Tenor
    I gig for a living. I've gone through a number of tenors, Conn (fireworks), Selmer Modele 26, Pan American (back up horn), Mark VI, Bundy (back up horn), Mark VII, Couf Superba II, Grassi Prestiege, and MacSax classic. The MacSax I had custom finished with 2 coats of silver colored nickel for...

    I have a of couple questions about an old Berg Larsen Alto mouthpiece I have owned for a couple years. Let me know if you need other photos to answer my questions. 1) I have been told it’s from either the 60’s, 70’s or 80’s, but I don’t know how to get a more precise approximation of it’s date...

    Hello guys, I got a Berg Offset 105 / 2 / SMS from a good friend hier locally. First I thought it was a common 60s, but going thru some threads at the forum it might be more a 50ths Berg ??? The chamber/baffle seems like done by hand. With the Berg I got a Berg Cap and a Berg lig. Please...

    Hi guys! I'm looking for a new mouthpiece atm; I'm playing an Otto-link 7* at the moment on a Jupiter Artist Series. I'm looking at picking up a new piece, but I love in Melbourne and the local stores only have so much. I just played a brilliant 8* Jody Jazz NY which felt great and I've been...

    Greetings! Some time ago, I switched from a Berg 115/3 M tenor to a Claude Lakey 8*3, and I LOVE it. Supposedly, the 8* translates to around .117. I currently play a Berg 130/1 M on bari. I like it, but I would LOVE to find the bari equivalent to the Lakey, but also corresponding to the...

    Thinking about Doc Tenney: I bought this piece from him about 10 years ago ... we had a sort of "diagnostic" phone conversation about what I was shooting for, after which he sent me this SS Berg, 110/2 SMS with his custom facing. It was (and is now) my primary tenor piece. And by primary I mean...
  10. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Hello All, I have an old: Berg Larsen Metal 110/2 SMS Saxophone Mouthpiece that I want to sell on eBay. So I did a fair amount of research on-line, but I was not able to accurately identify such things as original manufacture date, actual $ value(I know it's approx $300USD, but...), etc...

    I'm an intermediate sax player in highschool and I'm having trouble deciding what mouthpiece I should use. I have a selmer soloist D on my keilwerth EX90 I believe, it's the intermediate version. I don't like the feel of the mouthpiece or the sound and I'm interested in getting a metal...

    Hey, so recently I found an alto saxophone in an old case in my garage, with a saxophone I have as of yet not completely identified. (link to thread: http://forum.saxontheweb.net/showthread.php?142882-Selmer-Bundy-alto-identity-crisis-Help! ) Oddly enough, though, there wasn't an alto mouthpiece...
  13. Tenor mpc
    I'm at that stage where I'm finding it hard to settle on any one mouthpiece. I'm playing Tenor now for over 5 years and have went through a good few mouthpieces. My Tenor is a yani T991 UL and I love it!! Also have a T901 and S901. Searching through my sax drawer, I found some mpc's that I'm not...
  14. Ligatures
    Hi SOTW! First post, here it goes: I'm looking for a new ligature for my metal Berg Larsen 120/2 SMS for tenor sax. I'm mostly into playing hiphop, but like to jazz once in a while. It would be nice if the lig has a clear sound since my chamber is so big.. I'm considering buying the FL...

    Well boys and girls, I got my SS 125 / 2 with an offset M tenor Berg Larsen today. I put a token bid on it on eBay, figuring I wouldn't win it, but I told myself, at least I tried. Well what do you know, I won the darn thing! I put a 2 1/2 Rico (orange box) reed on it, and it plays pretty...

    I've been trying Links in various permutations on tenor over the past year, including a great HR Phil-Tone and an excellent NY STM refaced by EZ, but the one that's really grabbed me these days is a "Florida inspired" STM, reworked and opened from a 6* to an 8 by Sakshama, and purchased here...
  17. Eb Baritone
    Hello, I am presently searching for a plastic/rubber/ebonite or full-grained ebonite mouthpiece for my Mark VI. I am not interested in purchasing a metal mouthpiece, and I cannot find any other bergs in Montreal. I am ready to get one shipped. I am looking for a 105-110 or 115 tip opening, with...
  18. Reeds
    Hey guys, I've been playing on my Berg Larsen 105 SMS for about a year and a bit now. For the whole time I've been using 2 1/2 V16's, which might seem kind of soft but 3's were pretty tough to play with that bigger tip. Recently I've been getting kind of fed up with my tone and sound. I'm...

    A quick gander at the published setups of a few alto players using Bergs: Tim Berne 95/2 Arthur Blythe 95/1 Craig Handy 105/1 Dick Oatts 90/2 If these were Meyer pieces, the above tip openings would correspond to Meyers running from just below 10 and heading toward 11 -- and no alto players I...
