it's probably just a bad case of an automatic translator on the loose

“ On the bass, saxophone head, blowing mouth whistle, card, protection cap, suit”

It probably means a tenor mouthpiece with cap and ligature in a carton box

Strange because the same seller sells with intelligible terms other things

They typically will call a mouthpiece like a 'head joint' of a flute. So you have a bass sax mouthpiece with protective cap, a 'suit' or 'set' - like a 'suit of clothes', a set of associated items. I don't see why this is so perplexing.

Milandro has it right - over-reliance on automated translation software.

Knowing the Chinese characters and their common translations what this looks like is a package of a mouthpiece, ligature and cap.
"head blowing mouth" = mouthpiece
"whistle card" = metal ligature
"protection cap" = cap

Your big challenge is what kind of horn this piece fits. I doubt it is for a Bass sax. I will write the seller in Chinese and ask.

Got a reply from the seller. This is a baritone mouthpiece.
Thanks for doing that. It came up in my auto-search for bass sax mouthpieces. I was thinking of buying it because if it was a bass sax mouthpiece it would have been a relatively good deal.
