Hello,
Can anyone identify this alto mouthpiece?
It doesn't have any signs, numbers, nothing.
It came with a vintage Buescher I've recently got.
Is it worth to keep it or someone wants it?

I agree with the man above - try it. It looks like many many other mouthpieces including a Runyon 22. I'd keep it because it'll play well enough even with those wide side rails. It ain't worth anything in a moneytary sense and it's always nice to have such a thing on hand should you ever need it.

thanks for replies! I'll see how it sounds. I haven't seen such a shape of the shank before.
If you mean the stepped shank, I thinks pieces similar to this came with Conn student saxes around the 1960s, stamped "Conn Precision". They may have been a Runyon design if I remember rightly. Basic beginner fare, nothing to write home about.

You might get 10 or 15 bucks for it on ebay. You can always keep it to experiment on. I learned to face mouthpieces on a box of those I bought for 6 bucks each a zillion years back.
So ,,, you're a Zillion+ years old ??

the brand Gigliotti had a very similar shaped alto sax mouthpiece in various colors. Found with various names on them.
I think they were made by Runyon.
I have heard lots of great things about the Runyon 22 including Charlie Parker playing (a white) one but I do not recall any near the same sentiment expressed about Gigliotti.
