For sale: Geoff Lawton made 7*BB gold plated metal tenor mouthpiece. I have owned this piece from new for around 15 or so years. it was my main player before I was seduced by Theo Wanne! Always played with a patch and in very good condition with slight marks from usual wear. Comes complete with original packaging. £225 including postage.

5% of proceeds go to Pete's charity.

Thanks, Mike

I have a Lawton 7*BB, absolutely fantastic playing piece, mines silver plated over brass and the plating on the table is starting to bubble but plays great all the same....anyone considering the above wont go far wrong...

i agree i had a custom 7* BB , no rails built in and with rovner ligature, was my favourite mouthpiece EVER until it went 'missing' when i was doing some gigs in Cyprus a few years ago, gutted.
whoever buys this will not be sorry, they are great big powerhouses but also able to play warm when needed.

Mines a little bit special in that it started life as a standard brass piece, but then was used by a Royal Marine's bandsman who had it silver plated to match the sax it was being used with.

Lawton pieces are great and I have lots of them SATB.

Just a small point - Geoff Lawton didn't use brass, he made his standard pieces from Nickel Silver, as well as other metal pieces from stainless steel and bronze.

In an interview for the CASS magazine Geoff Lawton said "The base metal isn't brass, like most people use. I just use the best materials available. I use nickel silver, which is one of the most noble alloys you can get, 50% dearer than brass." The whole interview is here: http://www.john-robert-brown.com/geoff-lawton.htm

Interesting point he raised in that interview regarding metal sounding different to ebonite or hard rubber.....think we've had quite a few arguments against that thought here on the forum recently....I remember Phil Barone stating over on sotw that they sound the same, personally I'd go with Geoff Lawton as I've always thought they sound quite different....
