Dave Guardala MB Model Tenor Mouthpiece, Handmade by NI, Gold-Plate - NEW

Guardala mouthpieces are synonymous with quality and made famous by Michael Brecker  creating his own amazing sound on his own models with the MB and MB II.

This technology opened the doors to a previously unheard level of precision in mouthpiece technology.

This model is the exact replica of the mouthpiece that Michael Brecker used. This model incorporates a moderately high baffle with a large bore. It is lessbright than the Studio Model but brighter than the Traditional Model. It should be used for the Mainstream.

Superior sound could be reached through precise, high quality manufacturing and innovative “Computer Numerical Control Milling Machine” technology. This technology opened the doors to a previously unheard level of precision in mouthpiece technology.

Before this, mouthpieces were welded from two pieces, which didn’t allow for the resonance and vibration characteristics Guardala mouthpieces offer. Although Guardala mouthpieces are computer milled, they still require extensive finishing and extreme attention to detail, which means every Guardala mouthpiece is a combination of computer accuracy and professional handcrafting expertise.

Dave Guardala Studio Model, Gold-Plate Tenor Mouthpiece, ORIGINAL HAND-MADE #S-181 - Used

This is the original, hand made, Dave Guardala tenor mouthpiece in the "Studio" model, likely originally Gold-plated although the plating is mostly gone.  Chamber, tip and rails look completely original.  Serial number is S-181 as best I can see it.  The bite plate had a moderate groove on it that you can probably won't feel with a medium thick mouthpiece cushion.

These are extremely sought after mouthpieces and worth what you pay for them.

No ligature or cap included.

Dave Guardala Traditional Model, Gold-Plate Tenor Mouthpiece, ORIGINAL HAND-MADE #T-966 - Used

This is the original, hand made, Dave Guardala tenor mouthpiece in the "Traditional" model, Gold-plated and it appears to have had the table, tip and rails worked on, but without any indication of who did the work. Chamber looks completely original.  Serial number is T-966.  About half of the gold-plating has worn off.  The bite plate had a mild groove on it and there is an imperfection in the bite plate that looks like there may have been a bubble in the material, but it is right next to the edge so it shouldn't be a problem unless you take a lot of mouthpiece in your mouth.

These are extremely sought after mouthpieces and worth what you pay for them.

No ligature or cap included.

GRAFTON VINTAGE PLASTIC ALTO #12,xxx, like Charlie Parker Played!!!

The Grafton Plastic alto is one of the most iconic vintage altos.  Most people know of it because of it's white plastic body and the fact that Charlie Parker played one when in England on a date in which they couldn't use his real name due to contract obligations in the US.

These are getting more rare and hard to find every day.  This is only the second one we have seen in our 23 years in business and I doubt we will see many, if any, more!

This one is serial number #12,xxx and it's in very good overall condition.  There is only a minor amount of plastic damage to key guard near the Low C key and the receiver and High F tone hole had some repair work done in that vicinity which is making the High F not seal right now, but I am sure we can get it to work well.  

All original pads, corks and felts with original resonators in the pads as well!  These play great when they are up and running.

I expect this horn will be worth twice what we are asking in about 5 to 10 years.  I would leave it as is and just put it away until a rainy day or, if you like, we will do our best to get it playing well before you receive it.

Don't miss this if you are a serious horn collector!!!
