Can anyone id this tenor sax piece for me please? Clarion, Pomarico, pyne, kleartone? Illusive Brillhart Powertone? Only marking is the number 1 on the bottom of the table, and as far as I can tell, it's plastic. Thanks in advance.

Got one just like that, but mine says Alonzo Leach, and then something else. They're plastic. Nice looking but not very well playing piece. Not worth a lot.

I think it is an old JJ Babbitt mouthpiece. These were made as stock mouthpieces for Buescher, King and other saxophone makers.

Internally they look a bit like the Brilhart. Babbitt made stock pieces in black, white and clear resin.

Some play quite well, especially with a bit or work on the baffle.

But they excel at grossing out your friends.
