• JVW 'EARLY BABBITT' STM

    $795.00Price

    HERE IS A LATE 1970'S VERY GOOD CONDITION 'EARLY BABBITT' SUPER TONE MASTER OPENED FROM A 5 TO A 7. THIS MOUTHPIECE MEASURES .098" ON MY GUAGE. 

     

    THIS PIECE IS IN VERY GOOD SHAPE BUT OBVIOUSLY HAS WEAR TO THE BITEPLATE AND SOME PATINA TO THE BRASS. THIS PIECE WAS EXPERTLY OPENED FROM ITS ORIGINAL SIZE TO A 7 BY THE LATE MASTER REFACER, JON VAN WIE. 

     

    JON VAN WIE WAS A STUDENT OF TED KLUM AND WAS HIGHLY ACTIVE, WORKING FOR PROFESSIONALS AND HOBBYISTS ALIKE BACK IN THE LATE 1990'S AND EARLY 2000'S UNTIL HIS DEATH IN 2003. 

     

    THE WORK WAS DONE FOR THE ORIGINAL OWNER, PAT PEREZ WHO HAD THIS WORK DONE IN JON'S HOME BACK IN THE LATE 90'S.  JON'S WORK OPNENED UP A NICELY BALANCED SHELF BAFFLE FROM THE ORIGINAL MATERIAL AND PLAYS QUICK AND FOCUSED. GREAT EXAMPLE OF HOW AN EARLY BABBITT ERA PIECE SHOULD PLAY.
