I recently received as present a mouthpiece by a friend. It was in bad conditions with lot of discolorations but rails and tip were OK! I decided to restore it in a non destructive way. After the cleaning procedure I was able to read the following thin signs on the shank:

LONDON
ENGLAND

Berg Larsen (slanted)

reg. design
851427/8

On the opposite side of the shank the number 85

The internal chamber has a Bullett shape.

I am not an expert on Berg Larsen Mouthpieces, can you give me more information about this one?

The only thing I can say is that it has lot of projection and a very deep solid vintage sound.

What a great gift!

I've also got an old Berg Larsen hr alto piece with the slant sig. It's one of the older models.

I had mine restored since the tip was damaged. It's the best playing Berg I've ever played, quite different from the modern ones. More projection and more core to the sound.

Thanks, I will try to make a wood reproduction, I really enjoy the way it plays.

I also have the exact same mouthpiece in great condition. It is a 95 over 1.
I cannot play it. Wrong size for me. I'm looking to trade it for a Berg Larsen "Duckbill" 110 or 120 over 2. Know anybody who has one to trade??
