You are very lucky, I think that is an old Slant Signature mouthpiece, I believe these are very valueable. How much did you pay for it?

it's worth about 550 US dollars.
but since collectors seem to swarm all over these some nut might give you alot more than that for it.

I saw on Ebay that 6*-9* were sold for 900-1200 USD. But I have not saw 5*. Therefore I wanted to know prices. But I do not think that 550 USD

A slant sig Link will be valuable in any circumstance, regardless of facing. Put it on eBay and see how much you get for it...some people prefer the smaller facings.

Mention in your ad that Coltrane played a 5*. Never mind that it was a different mouthpiece and was, in all likelihood, refaced. A line like that could possibly scare wary players away, but might just bring in a few collectors, who are probably the ones playing the big buck$$$$$$.

:twisted:

I played Tone Edges for years in openings from 6* to 7's for years before I finally decided that I liked a 5* because it gave me more "edge" to my sound. IMO as my embouchure and concept got better, I graduated toward smaller tip openings. It seems that a lot of people here think the opposite: you need an open mouthpiece to get a big sound. There is one seller here that always has great mouthpieces for sale, but it kind of turns me off from buying anything because they have big tip openings, or have been opened up. Monster tip opening does not equate to "Monster sound".
