Used Tenor Pieces

Chicago Mouthpieces offers a variety of quality hand faced used mouthpieces for the discerning musician.  All of the pieces offered for sale on the site have been personally inspected, measured, and tweaked by Ed Svoboda.  Every piece is inspected, measured, and play tested before any modifications are made in order to come up with a game plan on how to make the piece play as well as possible.

Brilhart Personaline 3 with serial number This one has been rescued from the junk pile!  When it came to us it had a crack in the shank that had been previously repaired poorly and went through to the table.  The piece also had a small tip chip.  After getting the piece I gently placed it on my tenor and gave it a test blow and was very pleased that the piece blew like great Personaline's do.  It had to be rescued.

I filled the chip tip and went to work on performing a permanent repair to the shank using a copper ring.  There's still some evidence of the previous repair but the shank is now stronger than when it was new.  The ring is the same diameter of the old shank and if necessary the piece could be opened up without the shank repair having to be redone.  The piece won't win any beauty contests but is a heck of a player and I'm happy we were able to rescue it from the junk heap.

All-Star Vintage Large Chamber Hard Rubber A major overhaul took place on this piece.  The table was flattened, the beak was ground down (it was far too thick for most players to play comfortably), a new facing curve applied and of course polished to remove years of oxidation.  The side is marked 5 and originally the piece was about .055" - I've opened it up a .065" with a 24mm facing length.  If you're looking for a Rascher type piece with a bigger mouth feel then this is the piece.   $80.00
Generic Large Chamber Hard Rubber This piece has been refaced to a .070" tip with a medium long facing.  Typical barrel chamber dark sounding piece.    $50.00
French Classical Medium Chamber This piece has a very centered "bright" classical sound.  Plays great from the bottom up as high as you can play.  The tip is .066" and the facing length is 24mm.  A wonderful french classical piece.   $60.00
