Just going through a bunch of old sax stuff my dad gave me, found a Bilhart metal mouthpiece for alto, but the ligatures broken. I've been trying to find a replacement but I can't find the model anywhere.

The serial code is 060480 with a 7* next to it, any idea what model this is or where I could get a replacement ligature? I've just been using a hairband up until now.

Thanks in advance

Brilhart Level Air made June 4, 1980. The ligatures were somewhat special, being more tapered than others because of the mouthpiece design, but you should be able to use a Rovner type fabric ligature on it. The mouthpiece is supposed to have a thick black plastic insert on the beak. Hopefully yours has it because they are no longer available. If it isn't there, you can use a thick rubber patch on it.

I have a few ligatures - I'll look tomorrow and see if I have one that might work. It used an 'inverted' ligature with the screws on top.
