Here is an original, 1960's Selmer 'Soloist' G alto saxophone mouthpiece. This mouthpiece measures a staggering .097" on my gauge.
In the 1950's, Selmer Paris came out with a number of innovative products that remain the benchmark for design and performance. The Soloist design was introduced with some of the earlier Mark VI saxophones and was included but by the 60's they had adapted their design to be slightly longer to cater to customers who preferred the intonation of the longer body design.
This piece comes from the collection of Canadian saxophonist Kirk MacDonald and is ideal for a player who is looking to play this iconic design in an incredibly rare G stamp. No need to reface open for that Kenny Garrett vibe!
