    I've got a Brilhart which appears to be like new - it says "Designed by Arnold Brilhart" and looks like a Level Air, but does not say "Level Air." The SN is 933x. What model might this be? At 4* it's probably not valuable, but I'd like to know. Thanks!

    Hey, I'm new to this forum and I'm sure this question has been asked a few times, however, I couldn't find a definitive anwser. I was classically trained on the alto for over 8 years and began learning jazz 3 years ago. I want to get a jazz mouthpiece so I did my research and feel like a...

    Ive been playing a Rico Metalite M7 with Rico Royal 2 reeds for a while now and from the get-go I have been quite unhappy with the tone of my playing, I've saved up about £180 ($230) for a new mpc and I'm going to look into a new reed choice as well (I have more money available if needed). I'm...

    Once upon a time I tried an old Otto Link New York - that was the most easy-to-play mouthpiece ever. All others I played are almost the same but this one was incomparably better. However I'm too greedy to pay $500. Is there anything similar to Otto Link New York but cheaper?

    I've played lead tenor in jazz band for 6 years now on my SR Tech legend mouthpiece. Recently, I was asked by my professor to switch to lead alto and was looking for any advice on a good lead section playing piece. Preferably, I would like this piece to stay within the $250 range. Any advice...

    I came across this listing and it raised an eyebrow, I thought brilhart mouthpieces were vintage and or discontinued. Can someone enlighten me ? http://www.wwbw.com/Brilhart-Ebolin-Alto-Saxophone-Mouthpiece-467378-i1412713.wwbw#/product-details

    I'm a ninth grader in the search of a good MPC for both concert and marching band I can't go over $100 because I'm a broke high school student. Thanks for the help in advance.

    I have 8 or 9 years experience on the alto, but I've only recently returned after a decade hiatus. I've never had a problem with mouth leakage, and I still don't on my Selmer C*, Vandoren Optimum AL4 or Jody Jazz HR 5. I'd like to offload some of these mouthpieces in favor of the Rascher, as I...

    After buying a True Tone from 1929 (low Bb, high E), I noticed that my intonation was ~30 cents sharp, so I switched from a Yamaha 5C to a Caravan, which was actually overcompensating. Now it varies in its intonation from slightly flat to about 20 cents flat, even with the shank pushed in as far...

    Hi I really wanted to buy a Selmer Soloist mouthpiece, but I don't know which facing to get. I want the darkest facing so I don't want to make a mistake and buy bright sounding mouthpiece haha. I usually play on a Vandoren AL3.
  12. Tenor mpc
    Hi SOTW members, I'm getting back into the swing of things with all things saxophone after a little hiatus from playing. The issue I have is my Link STM 8 MPC is very narrow (it was purchased in the mid 90's when I was in high school), so narrow that the reeds overhang the side rails, enough to...
  13. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    Hi all, So granted the fact that ive always disliked the tenor saxophone, only tenor is played in my school's show band. So im looking for something under $40-50 because i already have my alto setup nice and good. Im switching from a c* and a OL 6*. Im just wondering if anyone has a used S80/90...

    I have a level air bari mouthpiece that the bite plate fell off. It had been repaired several times over the decades and was ready to fall off. There are several layers of old, dry adhesives on both the metal and plastic (rubber cement and possibly super glue). Assuming I clean of as much as the...

    I am lost in the long dark tunnel of searching for a mouthpiece. I have looked at a few different metal mouthpieces and was wondering what you guys used. Please include the size of the mouthpiece and what kind of sound you get out of it. Thanks! Here are some I have been looking at: Berg...

    I did use the search function, however I couldn't find The exact information I wanted and I know there is a lot of opinion involved. The number is 553388 Which puts it right in the 70s and yes after the Selmer buyout. I got this at $200.00 even after shipping and it has been professionally...

    My Otto Link Super Tone Master that I just ordered appears to have a long bite plate. It has a strip across the top where it says "Otto Link" in cursive. It has the facing size and U.S.A. on the front of the shank. The shank also has two lines on it. Can someone tell me which STM this is, how...

    I CANNOT find how to achieve the sound of the sax in this song: http://a.tumblr.com/tumblr_m8o47evZGF1qgch90o1.mp3 Certain MPC combination, sax, what is this!?!?
  19. Alto mpc
    Ok, so I've been playing on my AL4 for a few years now, and I'm getting frustrated. I think this mpc is extremely picky and whatever I do, I can't seem to remove the airy sound I have with this mpc. I play on blue box #3 and #3.5. I have played on Soloist C*(my friend's) and my older S80 C*...

    Hi guys, I have an old Selmer mpc which has been siting in my closet for ages. I am going to sell it, would somebody tell me what model is this mpc ? its in perfect condition, and never been modified. The opening is E, and there is a "Jazz" engraved on the reed table. And how much is the market...
