I got this on ebay with a rubber tenor Berg, It's a great lig but I'd never seen one before. I've since seen a couple of similar ones on ebay. Does anybody know who made them and when?

No, no markings of any kind. It's just plain lacquered brass. It interested me almost as much as the mouthpiece. I was expecting something flimsy but it's beautifully made and works really well. If they were made or used on Selmers there must be quite a few around abandoned for more streamlined, and easier to grip, modern styles.

these were only (at least this is what I have seen) on early ebonite or wooden selmers (mine came with a wooden piece) so I don't think they would fit a streamlined piece . This would happen only if you found a soprano lig and fit it on a tenor streamlined piece

Thanks guys I guess that nails it. After being pointed in the right direction I compared it to an oldish 2 screw selmer alto lig and the cut-outs and general shape are identical.

Years ago I had a clarinet one similar to this one and the problem was that the screw would bump my chin as the clarinet is tilted more than a saxophone.
