This is an amazing mouthpiece, Early Babbitt STM Link, short body - restored by Bill Street. He worked on an original mouthpiece, on the tip and the shank, perfected table and the rails also. The chamber is original. It sounds very Coltrane-ish. Beautiful intonation and very free-blowing. It is "95 tip. Great projection. it really needs to be played. For questions, please call.
The cosmetics: the shank is repaired, as you can see. The bite plate has a scratch on it, but there is a clear plastic protector on top. The table has discoloration. The tip's baffle has discoloration.
I offer a return policy in case you find it too ugly-looking upon arrival. But it REALLY sounds amazing.
Bill Street is the best.
||Would trade for NY Tone Master Link or 4 Star Link, tip 5 or 4.
