G'day all - with regards to...

Hammerschmidt "Spezial" vintage "Klingson" tenor mouthpiece - has anybody encountered such a piece and be in a position to cast their opinion about one? I'd love to know

thanks

Glenn

This is the one from eBay. Looks like a Brilhart knockoff.

perhaps Brilhart made them? who in Germany made mouthpieces? I mean who made the Jawo pieces, and the pieces for B&S for example?

Hammerschmidt certainly didn’t make their own mouthpieces.

I have had an Alto mouthpiece (now owned by another forum member) which was certainly made by Wagner. It is very probable that this mouthpiece above was made by someone else (not Wagner) but more likely to have been a German company.

The company (even if they no longer make saxophones) still exists and I have had the pleasure to correspond with them several times about clarinets , saxophones and flutes. (they do speak English but if you are able to address them in German they may replay quicker)

milandro - honestly? is there anything about saxophones you don't know? Someone 'ought to pick your brain and write the book OR create a web-site featuring your amazing knowledge. You are a bloody marvel :) Thank you so much for your gracious response.

Thanks :) I just remember things ( especially this kind of thing) have a good visual memory and happen to have owned a few Hammerschmidt instruments and have got in touch with them. Then I looked up their address (which I don’t remember).

Good Luck!

A view of the chamber and baffle?

That might reveal a family connection.
