    DSC00748.JPG

    1. An unbranded boxed mouthpiece with a label 4c ebonite £10 SOLD
    2. Windcraft size not marked but I think from my measuring it is probably a #4 (It's certainly at the small end of the scale :)), mouthpiece is unmarked £30 SOLD
    3. Sharkbite 6 with lig and cap unused £15 SOLD
    4. Rico Royal A7 with cap and lig used once or twice and no marks £20
    5. Rico Metalite in original box and never used according to our generous donor and it looks unused to me £25 SOLD
    6. A used Yamaha Custom 5CM this looks in very good condition no bite marks. It looks like a patch has always been used. £50 SOLD

    We are open to offers but please be fair and generous as these have been given to benefit the Café and Pete's good causes.

    We have 3 Rico plasticover reeds strength 2 and 1 Vandoren 1.5 first four mouthpieces sold you can choose a reed to try in the price :)

    Please add postage of £3 for UK sales, it will be more if you want it insured. I'll post them out as soon as I can but bear with me as I work full time and getting to the Post Office isn't always easy.

    If you want more detailed pics of a specific piece let me know :sax::sax::sax:

    Some alto mouthpieces here

    Thank you

    I already have most of these! :oops:

    But what about the ligature right in front of those mouthpieces? It's not listed... o_O

    Yeah, I'm a taker for the lig. Curious to see how it is. Looks like an interesting concept to deal with many different mouthpieces.

    I received my Compass ligature, in perfect condition, like new.

    :thumbs:

    It works fine for me. Only tried it on tenor so far, but I'll probably give it a try on alto.

    Thanks again to the generous donator.

    And guys, here is your chance to satisfy a bit of curiosity and acquire one of these mouthpieces.

    Have you ever played a Sharkbite? No! Then you should. It's surprisingly good for the price. Honest.

    And what about the infamously load and bright Metalite? In a wide open 9, it's your chance to see if you like it as much as Marmite or Vegemite! Cause I'm telling you, that one is dynamite!

    For the more conservative ones, you can always rely on a Yamaha and this one has been qualified as smooth and mellow somewhere. Quite the opposite of the Metalite!

    Buy them, buy them, buy them!

    You can always recycle them as Christmas presents in a few weeks.

    So think about it. :mrcool

    Hi Jeanette

    Is the sharkbite still available? If it is, I'll have it.

    Sharkbite received today. Many thanks to the donor for his or her kind actions, and to @Pete Thomas for posting the mouthpiece on to me.

    If you are hankering after one of these but are unsure, here's a little incentive.

    If you buy one and find within 3 months you don't like it then you can list it for resale in the yardsale free of donation :)

    I'll take the windcraft, I've some reeds that are two hard for my Berg so that would do fine for them I think. How you want paying?
