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...

  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).

Sax Mouthpieces

 

Mouthpiece HOME

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.

Just in, from Bob's Collection:

Vintage Berg Larsen "Slant Signature" Tenor:  here's one of the rarest of the rare!: Real fat tone, it's the vintage duck bill + bullet chamber + boat tail table.  It has the short shank. Checked out by Bob Carpenter, It measures a 0.105" with 24mm facing length. The script is very faint on the shank but you can still see the slant signature!--me staring at the # side, I think it reads [95] originally, and baffle number, I would guess, would be a 2 or 3 from just looking at the baffle. I can't read the [M vs SMS] at all. Sorry, no ligature

769.00 Item: Bob's CollectionBL-BT

Sound File: pending.... I want to do one!

 

New era, Otto Link "Super Tone Master" NY U.S.A. 5* Tenor: 

Here's the newest Otto Link model. I got this on a trade with a customer. Guess what, these NEW mouthpieces need hand-crafted into perfection - Flatten table, adjust curve start, and reset to the 5* 0.085". I'll do this reface, gold plate the repairs, and you can have a darn good playin' "new" Link! Comes with original ligature, metal cap and box!

vintage Otto Link "Super Tone Master" 5* ALTO: Another great mouthpiece from the late 70s!I believe this is the Transitional model--Large Font on the "5*", with USA.  It arrived with Original tip measures 0.068"...There were some metal bubbles forming on the table. So I opted to "enhance-reface" it and inspect the tip--I improved the tip seal too($+80). You can still see the Denim! THEN, new 24k GOLD plated the whole mouthpiece ($+70). You can see the original marks on the table and tip! ASK ME ABOUT A LIGATURE, it arrived with the one the owner bought with it, but it fits a tenor (?). I think we can work out a deal with this lig or another swap idea. But I have the lig and cap set to go with this one.

$325.00 priced nicely Item#: WWS165.00.2111.4-C40

 

JUST IN!

H. Couf "4* SPECIAL" tenor: here's a great playing, hard plastic mouthpiece. free blowing tip I refaced it to 0.085"! It has slightly rollover baffle at the tip (form reface), and slight, gradual sidewalls in the chamber. HUGE TONE!

vintage Otto Link "Tone Master" 7 Tenor: yes, I said the super rare "7" tip!!! (keep in mind that is based on the vintage chart size: = a modern 5* Link size) t arrived in an Original Tip @ 0.085"!!! BUT...it did not play well at all--fthreepackSpecialConsignment.JPG (1105054 bytes)acing was too long, So after leveling the table, and adjusting the curve start and end, I improved it and had to do a minor reface to 0.086". PLAYS AWESOME! It has a white tooth pad (confusing to me) but it looks original--NEAT!. These can easily demand $900.00+ at a retail listing, but I bet you'll be enticed by this one. Comes with original ligature & cap! Both are worn. (CAP is awaiting Return from a client trial. check in with me.) "Before" photo to the right. It has a large chamber and a fantastic, vintage Link tone.

Factor in: refacing attention (+$125), silver plate repairs/mouthpiece($82), thin Gold plate ($82)to enhance the vintage look:

It reminds me a lot of the Model A design--shallow beak. the Script is in excellent condition too! But these have a medium, round chamber--no side walls. Original tip measures 0.076". You can see the original marks on the table and tip! The beak continues to be very shallow, so no biting without protection. Comes with a nice brass ligature.

Berg Larsen 90-0-SMS(offset), tenor: This vintage "Straight Bill" is a stainless steel, metal mouthpiece with a bullet chamber. It has the horizontal machining marks. It has a easy playing original 0.085" tip size. Comes with original ligature and cap-- both nickel.

FIVE DIGIT SERIAL NUMBER! This one plays really nice with decent focus for a Tonalin. I'm biased, but I love these. A good smooth Stan Getz type sound. Original Tip size at 0.085", no tooth grooves. no ligature. There are two crack evidences, all too common on these. I would recommend banding it but I will offer two prices.

$199.00 as-is, or +band repair $299.00 (and plated silver or gold)  Repair look: Tonalin3Bari001.jpg (190663 bytes)

Brilhart "Hard Rubber" #6<8* Tenor:

These are one of the best Hard Rubber Mouthpieces ever made.  We got it as an altered #6 tip and I'll have Bob Carpenter open it up to perfection... There was a minor tooth groove I had Bob fix also. These have a a Nice big sound, medium tone, not too dark, not too bright, Sarge had THREE in his collection for a while, It's "best of" material!  These often out-play vintage rubber Otto Links but are more affordable. It looks like it was well played, but was most likely made in the mid 50's, serial number 013167. You don't often see "6" facings on this. It arrived slightly larger than original tip, measuring 0.093". Bob opened it up to 0.103"...technically that makes it an 8* tip. Considering Bob's beautiful reface, the price is going to be 549.00.  It will probably sell quickly, as i have seen them sell at ebay for 599.00.

549.00 ... After the reface Bob said, "You're not getting it back." (The highest compliment he has ever said about a mouthpiece. He was serious.) "I have 3 in my collection, and I intend to make it 4." Needless to say, I got it back but that was because I was supposed to hoard it for my personal collection.

Wagner/Keilwerth slimline model tenor, custom 8* :

JKslimline107_001.jpg (253467 bytes)JKslimline107_002.jpg (262385 bytes)JKslimline107_003.jpg (299381 bytes)A really nice hard rubber mouthpiece with the "JK" logo faint on the shank. It arrived at an original small tip 6 but with a chip. So I refaced it to a JK 8* or 0.107" at the tip. This is now a Wagner 11*, Otto Link 7**, or Meyer 10* by size.  It is a fantastic player! It has a mild warmth, nice focus, but big tone from the tip. sound is strong in the MID range, response is great! It has a small baffle and medium side walls. Currently paired it with a alto, leather, rovner-like wrap. 

$250.00 ANOTHER good one I thought about keeping it.

silver plated brass mouthpiece from the 80s. excellent quality hard rubber, horseshoe chamber. It arrived with improper tip size 0.073" which looks original at first glance but the facing needs some help. So...I will make this a proper 0.077", then silver plate the repairs. It arrived without a ligature, but I have a soprano rovner-like wrap to include.

here ya go, another great one. original Tip @ 0.043-44". I think these were originally paired with the Model 22 and 26 selmers. It has a faded marking that could be either "B" or "D" or "L" on the side of the table (going off the 0.043, I would say "B" is correct). sadly, very slight nicks in the tip. They don't appear to be in affecting the seal. These I chose to finesse into perfection for this great mouthpiece. no ligature, sorry. These are rather sought after and I will price it very appropriately at:

This is original at 90-0-M (with the M off to the right, which is older style than the centered facing length markings). The Tip measures a common 0.087" for a Berg 90; plays loud, has a fat tone with a strong treble presence(loud/bright). It comes with the original ligature and cap.  A very nice player! (and I'm not a huge fan of metal, Berg altos.)

Runyon Teeth & Mouthpiece Savers?  

RunyonTeethAndMouthpieceSavers_001.jpg (465114 bytes)Yes, available with mouthpiece/sax purchase. Packs of two are available for $4.00. Wow, prices went up! But these are Runyon mouthpiece savers. Both the same or mix and match.

     BLACK: thick cushion. more like foam. sharp teeth may cut through.

     CLEAR: thin with simple cushion. stronger than Black.

      Sarge liked both separately AND even put a clear over the black for longevity and cushion!

     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.

   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!
