thanks.Unless it is a very new mouthpiece it is unlikely that an old bass mouthpiece would also use baritone reeds.
Anyway the best way to tell is to measure the internal volume.
I have a very old riffault mouthpiece which was meant for baritone but is incredibly big and often is mistaken for a bass Mouthpiece (and indeed van be used on a bass if modified).
Likely. I recently bought a bari mouthpiece, turned out to be an older Zinner bass mouthpiece. I'll surplus it sometime to someone that needs it...or find a horn to go with it!the windows are about the same.
so its probably a baritone that needs a much larger thickness cork on the neck?
I have an old Buffet Crampon mouthpiece that came with my bass sax. The bore is huge on it (19.8mm) whereas my baritone sax mouthpieces seem to be in the range 17.6mm to 18mm. But the Buffet Crampon mouthpiece definitely has the same body size and shape as other French mouthpieces for baritone (made by Chedeville or Lelandais and branded as Lelandais, Couesnon, Noblet).thanks.
yes,its an older buffet mpc,so likely not a bass as i first was thinking it may be as the receiver was so large.
What is the bore diameter on your mouthpiece and does the bore look to be original ?I have the same mouthpiece. It is a baritone mouthpiece. I think it plays pretty well on baritone, although it is not what I use. I tried it on bass sax and it was too bright and inflexible for me. I think you will find that a baritone reed fits the facing very well.
When I got the mouthpiece, the bore was almost certainly original. It was huge for a baritone, but the facing was too narrow to be a bass sax mouthpiece. The inside of the mouthpiece looked similar to a slant signature Link bari piece. I had previously experienced good luck with old links on bass sax so I enlarged the bore to fit my Eppelsheim bass (Epps. require an enormous backbore, almost 20 mm.) but I was disappointed with the result. I still have high hopes to use it as a bass mouthpiece by enlarging the chamber a little about 1/2 to 3/4 inch back from the tip.What is the bore diameter on your mouthpiece and does the bore look to be original ?
