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. Oh! And Bob taught and mentored Chadd in the expert craft of Mouthpiece Repair & Refacing. Check out "Bob's Page" to know more: READ ON... You can see some of Bob's signature "RAC" on various mouthpieces here...aka: they play great and are worth more since Bob touched them

JUST IN...

***Coming soon/unlisted***

-TENOR: GALE Hollywood 3M, and Otto Link FL 6* !!!                                    

-BARI: Woodwind Co., Conn Steelay

 

 

 A professionally refaced mouthpiece  will almost always play better than a factory facing.

Has your mouthpiece been inspected for a proper curve and seal?

 YES? ... NO? ...

ALL mouthpieces need to be handcrafted to be up to WWS Standards -- Vintage or Factory New.

vintage clear plastic mouthpiece; 4-digit serial number 5958!. The original tip for #3 is at 0.072".  side-walled chamber. SOUND: a true Brilhart-tonalin-ebolin sound, + Great Neck NY = clean, simple, warm, the NY adds a little cut. Comes with a vintage, silver ligature ($40). There is an unfortunate crack on this one, up the shank onto the inside of the table. A banding repair is highly recommended for playing uses.

  Vintage Brilhart Level-Air 8 Tenor:  

LevelAir5tenor001.jpg (150102 bytes)(not actual photos--coming soon) This 1980 mpc is a nice free blowing mpc with a tip measuring 0.106" . It blows a big sound with heavy mid tones for a metal, cliff-style baffle. Minor refacing-curve work done here at WWS that surely improved this piece. 

WITH ORIGINAL: Lig, Cap, & BOX!

Wolfe Tayne #5, metal, baritone:  made of brass, NICKEL Plated, original tip at 0.101". Comes with original single screw ligature and a metal cap. (looks like a Brilhart cap). SOUND will be focused and clear with no special baffle design, and small side-walls. The toothpad shows a groove that I'll have Bob C patch up, then I'll put a clear stick-on over the repairs.

Made of some of the best hard rubber. wide table, side number stamp = series 2 model (of 3). The horizontal table markings are not quite there (not my doing). There will be no hype here. This is one of the most sought after tenor mouthpieces. It plays fantastic, as it should. It arrived with minor imperfections in the seal. It was cautiously and expertly repaired here at WWS. The tip may have opened about 0.0005" from that point. I will call this a darn-near Original Tip at 0.100". No paired ligature or cap or box to sent with it, sorry.

$TBD.00 -  I really wanted to keep this in my stash; Maybe you can help me!

vintage plastic mouthpiece with good material; no serial number keeps the price lower!. The original tip is at 0.074" , vertical table markings. side-walled chamber and a true Brilhart-tonalin-ebolin sound = clean, simple, warm. Less cut in the tone. Comes with a New nickel ligature.

Berg Larsen 100-3-M(offset) Duck Bill, hard rubber Tenor:

a superb mouthpiece. It reminds me of my frequent flyer. good material, and a near original tip, had slight enhancements done here at WWS, is at 0.095" , table markings were worked off prior to WWS (but trust the Offset M for the era). Bullet chamber is there, does show very mild evidence of work done(nothing to fear). We also inspected the minor wear to the rail to ensure the seal is still free-and-clear. I've marked the price down $50 for these. I found a vintage Berg ligature to pair with it too! 

SOUND: It's big, robust, yet clear, the #3 baffle helps leave some warmth in this robust core tone.

$299.00 I'm betting that the first person to try it will keep it.

Item:WWSL0S0.00.3231.6-C15-03

 

#2 vintage {Berg Larsen 105} baritone: 

Here is a rare Berg-like, a 1940/50s, bullet berg...?... Bob Carpenter says that these often didn't get stamped. There is a "5" marking on the side though, so it could be a stencil, similar to a late boattail. Tip measures @ 0.098"...But I will have to clean it up and perfect the Tip.  It has very nice, meaty core tone and is very resonant; not bright at all. This is a dark-bark sound. The table has vertical marks, too. It arrived without a ligature but I found a vintage, brass tenor one that works well.   

195.00 priced to sell! Item: WWSL2E5.3101.6-0C20

 

vintage Selmer SOLOIST "C*" now CUSTOM "E" , tenor:  hard rubber mouthpiece. long shank, "C*" on top of the mouthpiece.  The tip & chamber were highly modified prior to WWS. The Horseshoe chamber have been opened up to look more like a Meyer(medium) crossed with at Berg Larsen (Bullet). TIP measures 0.084" after WWS enhancements to the rails and tip. SOUND: Meyer-Berg, not a clean Selmer tone. It has more warmth and body to the tone. cosmetically it is a little ugly in the chamber, but the tip plays great. Looking for a budget piece? I bet I can find a generic ligature to send it off with(ask me).

$40.00   Could be your Sleeper-Player.

ULTRA RARE, #8... L8.  These are always great. Wood-grain tooth pad in Excellent condition!! Original tip to a 0.092"! (WWS did minor enhancements and will certify that this mouthpiece is amazing!) There are no cracks to mention. serial number is 5-digit #42382K. It plays very easy and has a centered, Mid-Tone core to the tone. These have a medium chamber with shallow side walls. It comes with a vintage ligature.

...on arrival, an improper tip measurement at 082", now a 0.099"!!! (or a Link 6**) It arrived with an improper curve and tip size. Between Bob Carpenter and myself doing a duos worth of the refacing work, this will be a superb player once we are satisfied.  Under close inspection, we knew it was our duty to bring this baby to life! All repairs were sealed with silver & gold plating.

" 6 * S " = This "S" marking is very very rare. It is original with the mouthpiece, as the marking is also on the box and the number stamped on the table.

SER#: H63.  WITH ORIGINAL LIGATURE, CAP, and BOX!

MC Gregory " GALE Hollywood" 3M modified Tenor:   

Gregory_GALE-Hollywood_3M-tenor_080_001.JPG (824774 bytes)Gregory_GALE-Hollywood_3M-tenor_080_002.JPG (852399 bytes)Gregory_GALE-Hollywood_3M-tenor_080_003.JPG (770092 bytes)Gregory_GALE-Hollywood_3M-tenor_080_004.JPG (419909 bytes)Gregory_GALE-Hollywood_3M-tenor_080_005.JPG (379214 bytes)

Here is a well-loved example of another great, Gregory mouthpiece. Typical MC Gregory design: shallow beak and quality rubber. This is the [type 3] of the GALE Hollywood--with the thinnest metal shank.  Made probably in the late 1940s, by my guess.

   The GALE was named after his daughter and the craftsmanship was still present to this day upon my early inspection. Unfortunately the tip had some damage on arrival so a reface seemed to be required to bring it to life. Rather than keep it at the original 0.062" it arrived with, the repairs allowed me to open it up to a very smooth playing 0.080" tip!  

   SOUND: It has a very clean tone and is even across the full instrument (perhaps a bit of extra resonance in the low end).  

   Currently no ligature is paired with it, but I'd be happy to include a basic one if you ask.

$329.00! Once you try it, I doubt you will want to let it go! 

(I should be pricing it at $375 and waiting...)

Item: WWS0.9E3.32.2111.6-C32

 

Conn "Standard STEELAY" #5 Baritone:  (quick listing)

Dukoff D6 [Nickel plated/silverite?!] ALTO/C-Melody

~IN BETWEEN ALTO AND TENOR~

Dukoff-lineup-with-C_D6_nickelplated_silverite_001.JPG (1391262 bytes)     Here is a surprise mouthpiece! (I can learn something new every day!) great This mouthpiece with a tip at 0.074" and a bum reed facing. It will needed refacing help. So I had Bob Carpenter look into it. He filled the tooth pad. After he returned it (also with confusion!), I did some serious improvements to the facing -- a WWS Reface-- and it now currently sits at 0.071".  This is a very tricky mouthpiece. Here is my best guess: A prototype Alto, or a C-melody test!

     Why might I guess it is a C-Melody? 

Measurements: 

1) body length that does not match Alto or Tenor.

2) Shank that does not go onto a tenor.

3) Reed window matches vintage C-melody mouthpieces

4) Reed plate is long for an alto, and short for a tenor (the reed hangs over the edge)

Conn Steelay "Standard" No.3, tenor: 

Conn_Standard_Steelay_Tenor_002.JPG (454141 bytes)Conn_Standard_Steelay_Tenor_001.JPG (585338 bytes)Paired with Conns from 1935-56, these had several options. The "No.5" (of the 6 sizes) was, according to Conn Loyalist: "A short facing with Medium- wide tip opening. The most popular all-purpose mouthpiece. Fine for solo work. Gives Larger Volume than Lay No.2." I find this entertaining because the original tip measures 0.059". The mouthpiece is in excellent condition. It has a huge round chamber and deep rounded side walls. Plays surprisingly easy, tone is bold but tubby, slight bit nasally, but with bolder presence. sorry, no ligature(ASK).

Dukoff D8 "Miami" silverite Alto:  (quick listing) a great mouthpiece that arrived with a tip at 0.080". It received refacing help from Bob Carpenter.... "THAT'S A NICE PLAYING MOUTHPIECE!" tip at 086"

HCouf_Arist_5starS_tenor_001.JPG (641210 bytes)HCouf_Arist_5starS_tenor_002.JPG (521225 bytes)here's another great, hard rubber mouthpiece. As Bob says: "these are the good rubber...they even taste like it". Ha, dare I say, he's right. you can taste the quality rubber. (I hope my cleaners can also act as as sealer to the rubber--to help the playing experience away from the taste of vintage rubber).  It arrived with original tip at 0.084" but it will get a WWS Reface here. The air goes into straight side-walls, into a Medium round chamber (slightly smaller than my other Couf Artist), currently with no baffle (small rollover likely in reface). This has a semi-slimline look. I have had several of these that were really fun!  This one has a slightly smaller medium chamber than Sarge's collection one (The "Artist"). This is the next generation with the [COUF] labeling--mostly worn off now.

$125.00!!!
