I have got hold of a soprano mouthpiece which looks old-ish, possibly vintage, likely ebonite, but all that is stamped on it is "R4" - there is also an indented line around the piece about half way up which used to be white/cream coloured. There may have been other logos but it is quite worn so they may have rubbed off. Any ideas for who made it? Yanagisawa metal pieces are R4, R5 etc but this is ebonite.

riffault too. or any brand using riffault (sml?)

exactly, riffault was one of the most prolific mouthpiece makers, generally marked as R 3-4-5 they provided many other brands and definitely did so with SML.

They tend to be nice warm and round, I like the soprano, was one of the best I ever had. The Baritone are very large and are often mistaken for bass saxophone mouthpieces.
