I need to fit a new neck cork for a sax and the player could not leave the mouthpiece with me. He plays a Selmer alto SQ-80. If anyone has one and can measure the ID of the shank using calipers in either millimeters or thousandths of an inch it would be a great help. Thanks.

Never heard of an SQ-80, but the S-80 I have is 15.9 - 16.0mm. Soloist is the same, so I guess that's the standard size for Selmer.

Thanks Kev. I am just going by what the customer said. I assumed the SQ designation meant the square window inside the chamber. I have never owned on so I am not that familiar with them. I stopped being a Selmer mouthpiece fan when I discovered the Rousseau classical mouthpieces.

to be honest, I don't use mine, I prefer the Morgan. Haven't tried a Rousseau, I stopped looking when I found the Morgan.

The S of S-80 is in a square box that can easily be mistaken for a Q when the inlay wears away. Mine has a smaller box, I think.
