Does anyone have one of these for sale (for tenor sax)? If so, please let me know, I'm interested. Thank you.

I found one on eBay a couple of years ago. Sometimes they still pop up there.

Thanks for the suggestion soybean. I did search ebay, but didn't find one, so I finally ordered it from the jazzlab guys. Expensive, but I'm really determined to work more on my larinx/throat/voicing skills through mouthpiece-only exercises.
I have one of these for alto and I did find it very helpful when the alto was my main saxophone.

Yes, i found it helpful too. Much better than cupping your hands over the mouthpiece and it's quieter too. I used to keep one in my car all the time for practicing while stuck in traffic.

It works as a buffer than lowers the volume when you are doing mouthpiece-only exercises, which can be very loud and unpleasant both for the payer and especially for the people near him/her.

They are available on ebay again. You can also contact me directly to order one.
Thank you for the information. I did order one already from the German shop, music world OHG.
