Brilhart Tenor (1960's) "Hard Rubber" 3* BP 105
Here is a vintage Brilhart “Hard Rubber” model 3* tenor. This was opened by craftsman Brian Powell and signed BP 105. It measures .105” on my gauge.
The Brilhart “Hard Rubber” model is a great alternative to folks who love the medium large chamber jazz tenor mouthpieces like vintage Tone Edge Otto Links. Brian’s work brought up a healthy amount of baffle for the sizzle and focus but kept the profile balanced for a warm centered voice. The rubber on these pieces is first class and was the model of choice for heavy swinging tenor man, Zoot Sims for most of his career on his 30’s Selmer tenor.
We prefer to sell our vintage mouthpieces in their original or existing condition and let the customer choose what to do with it. We can offer a 10% discount on our services for customization, please request by email at email@example.com.
