Meyer Alto Mouthpiece

I have an old Meyer New York USA (not meyers brothers) alto sax mouthpiece. I has 6 Meyer lapped facing M written on it. I play it every day and like it better than all the other mouthpieces I've tried. I'm a little concerned that the price of these old vintage mouthpieces have gone through the roof. Can someone tell me if it's worth alot or what? It's not a big deal as I will never sell it, unless I find something I like better. If it's worth a bunch of money I'll certainly take better care of it.........Kelsey

    Re: Meyer Alto Mouthpiece

    Yo, Kelsey..ya got yourself a fine mpc there. A few years ago, I sold a New York Meyer on ebay for $450.00. It seemed to be the going price, some pristine ones selling for $600.00 It's a great piece. I sold mine 'cause I don't play alto much anymore..just to teach, and I have a Phil Barone Meyer knock off that I really dig..so, if ya ever need some extra bucks, there ya go.

      Thanks Chalazon. I have been thinking about trying a Jody DV for alto, I have a Guardala MBll for my tenor and I really like metal mouthpieces. The Jody seemed to be expensive to me but I guess my old Meyer is an expensive mouthpiece as well. I won't part with the Meyer. Maybe I'll just keep two good pieces. I really need another alto mouthpiece as a backup. Drop a Meyer on a hard tile floor and that may be it.............Kelsey

        you might check out the Phil Barone pieces. His Meyer knock off is a smokin' piece..at a reasonable price..try his web site..drop a Meyer on a hard tile floor, and that will be it..ooohh nooo..

          I bought a tenney meyer mouthpiece from this site and it can't compare with my old meyers. I may just bite the bullet and lay down the $450. bucks to Brass and Reed for the DV. They will let me try it out before I buy............Kelsey
