If you wish to schedule a rebuild, or purchase one of the saxes (and it still needs to be rebuilt),  send me a 50% deposit to hold your place in the work schedule.  I work from a published schedule (see left margin) so that your sax will only be out of your possession a couple weeks, while i do the actual work, it does not have to just sit on the shop floor, until its turn comes up... you send it to arrive on schedule and we return it on schedule.

  E-mail chadd with  questions about our vintage saxes at:   worldwidesax@gmail.com  

Payment Options:

...Cash...or ...Check...

... Wire Transfers ($15)

... Paypal (3.5% fee)

  ~"Here" in shop (2.7%)

...ClearXchange! 

 

NEW!

Sure Pay/ClearXchange: The newest Bank-to-Bank $ transfer option by mobile phones to send money to our Email address! No fees attached! Perhaps THE way of future banking and payments. Use: WorldwideSax@Gmail.com

(Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Chase...)

 

  If  a horns says "just rebuilt", then it's ready to go, saxes that say "scheduled for a rebuild" are waiting for the work to be done, but it will be included in the posted price.  If a sax says "ON TRIAL" someone is taking advantage of the "Three Day Trial" policy (See Info and Orders page).

Purchase Mouthpiece Alto Tenor Baritone Soprano Other Ligatures Bob's Page

3-DAY TRIAL on all mouthpieces!

We make a point of pursuing the most rare and hard to find mouthpieces... 

so,  if we seem to have a lot of hard to find models, it's not because they aren't rare models. it's not because they aren't rare... it's because we try hard to stock them.  Since no one can know if a mouthpiece is right for you until you play it, these can be ordered and given a three day trial, shipped to you, and returned. If you aren't happy with them (except e-bay sales, as auctions are final.) and a small shipping charge is all you risk. 

     I get a lot of questions about my old friend Bob Carpenter... 

Bob got a lot of mouthpiece refacers started, such as Theo Wanne, who in turn got others started later... 

but no one does nicer work than Bob.  Check out "Bob's Page" to know more: READ ON...

 

A professionally custom refaced mouthpiece will almost 

always play better than a factory facing.

vintage [woodwind] Steel Ebonite, G6, Meliphone Special tenor: vintage hard rubber mouthpiece with good material. The chamber has straight side walls throughout just like a Brilhart Ebolin. The original tip is at 0.064" so this one will need a full reface to bring you some lushious tones! I'll find a ligature to go with it. (estimated tip to-be: 0.080-90"...or you can request the size!)

179.00! super deal for quality, hard rubber

Item:WWS00.00.3121.5-0C

 

Vintage Brilhart Level-Air 6* Tenor: This 1978 mpc is a nice free blowing mpc with a tip measuring 0.093".  Tooth pad is in great shape! It blows a big sound with heavy mid tones for a metal, cliff-style baffle.

[No Name] #6, Slim-line baritone: Hard Rubber, medium-large chamber mouthpiece. Tip at 0.082" (compare to a Selmer C* at 0.080), This looks like some German linage but with Meyer-like chamber design. with ligature.

vintage 1950s Otto Link "Super Tone Master" (No USA), 4*<6, Florida, Tenor:   

Otto_Link_Tenor_4to6tenor_No_USA_refaced_009.jpg (399215 bytes)Otto_Link_Tenor_4to6tenor_No_USA_refaced_001.jpg (522812 bytes)(I have more photos)

...1950s "NO USA" Otto Link--short body, no serial #, small font with roll-over baffle (=brighter tone). Has a slight roll-over baffle as was the design (more brighter) and perhaps more of a baffle in this one because of tip change from the 4* (small font) marking up to the ~#6 size. refaced tip @ 0.093"....or a 6+ (6 = ~0.091). I can almost certainly tell you that this tip was done by Bob Carpenter (I know the story on this mouthpiece and the buyer traded it in many years later). The bite pad shows signs of being repaired (glue) to hold, and it appears there was a pickup filled. (I don't see any worries there--I just feel the need to mention).  I did a few inspection points on the tip (since it was out with player for so long), I opted to do very minor touchups to clean up the table & tip seal. As was done previous, I'll seal those repairs with fresh gold plating! Comes with original ligature and non-original nickel cap (if you'd like it). It plays with a [brighter] tone than the classic Link tone.

$600.00 -  AMAZING PRICE on a Florida Link! 

Lots of folks won't even have a ligature included for that price!

Vintage Otto Link STM "USA" 6*, early Babbitt, thin tip tenor: a mid-70s "Super Tone Master", length measures 100mm and the 18mm SKINNY tooth pad. After cleaning it up, the play test was nice--subtle smooth "Link tone", but the response was lacking. Tip and table showed some very slight refacing adjustments. However, according to my inspection, I will have to give this one a Full Reface. This Link deserves it. I am aiming for a butter-responsive tip and a warm Otto Link Tone. Comes with ligature and cap! (Box is here too, but it was on a new level of gross smell). It just received a reface & replating my me. I tried to keep it as close to original as possible. The untrained eye won't even know it was worked on. The curve wasn't even a "curve" on arrival. Tip measures 0.094" after reface 22.5 facing length.

$550.00 ... $475.00 Through March!  Item: WWS00.00.2161.5-C90

 

Vintage Wolfe Tayne, silver, 6* (modified) tenor: Silver plated with ligature and cap. It came with the original box and I'll clean it up. Upon closer inspection, the tips, rails, table, and chamber were all MODIFIED. Perhaps "hacked up" would be more appropriate. The 6* should have been at .090 but it was at a super super long facing with 0.081. I'll TRY to fix this one and offer it. It will likely be a 0.080, wide bored-out chamber with low-to-no baffle. Comes with original ligature and box. I might silver plate the repaired areas if this turns into a good player.

this is a charity case. I'll let people try it in the shop only

Here is another highly sought after Brilhart!, original facing #3 on the table.4-digit ser# with, what I believe is the first number scratched off.  Expect Bob Carpenter to give this one a special Refacing to optimize your joy! --YES: Bob refaced it! It is a 0.097" with a Long 23mm facing. (Note this fact). The 23mm facing is not my personal preference, but it might your embouchure style--worth noting--Mouthpiece plays really great. 

Sound type:  It has very even, BOLD, clean tone. It is not "smooth", per se. It has a crisp bark with a smooth rubber general tone. (the "hard rubber" #6 listed below is more Smooth.) The tooth pad lived with a biter, HA, so Bob cleaned it up with extra attention and smoothed it out. Depending on your preference for cosmetics or comfort, perhaps a tooth pad will cover this area. Sorry, no ligature...yet? Bob LOVED this piece. I think he wants to buy it from me. (how's that for an endorsement?):

     I get a lot of questions about my old friend Bob Carpenter... 

Bob got a lot of mouthpiece refacers started, such as Theo Wanne, who in turn got others started later... 

but no one does nicer work than Bob.  Check out "Bob's Page" to know more: READ ON...

 

A professionally custom refaced mouthpiece will almost 

always play better than a factory facing.

 

RECENTLY ADDED! 

Custom Vintage Series tenors: 

I am happy to offer a unique new mouthpiece option for manCustomVintageSeries_001.jpg (1198763 bytes)y vintage lovers who want the benefits of modern technology with intent: To mimic the classic tones we love: Otto Link, Dukoff, Berg Larsen, Guardala, Brilhart...etc.

   All of these mouthpieces will be hand-inspected, with your options to customize the tip to your preference and, of course, the goal is to hand-finish, hand-craft each mouthpiece for you!
