Selmer soloist D mouthpiece

Haven't played sax in 19 years (since graduating college). I have a 1954 Buescher Aristocrat which is in pretty shabby shape. I also played with a Selmer Soloist D mouthpiece. I never really cared how good a horn I had; I just knew that I always had a better tone than the player next to me for some reason. Now, my 11 yr. old son has started to play and I am interested in quality al the sudden. Can anyone tell me how good a mouthpiece I have? Also, what is the difference between the F, C and D models of the Soloist? Thanks!!!

Mouthpieces (like everything else) are worth whatever somebody wants to pay. I bought my vintage Soloist E -- in near-mint condition -- for forty bucks from somebody who didn't really know what they were letting go. At the same time, Sarge over at World Wide Sax has vintage Soloist C* in pretty good condition for $199.

No matter how much it's worth, though, these pieces are awesome, and I have to agree with Daigle65: it might not be the best idea for your son to use it in school. You'd be surprised what kind of madness takes place in your average middle school band room.
