Lawton Tenor (1980's) Lawton 8
Here is an original, 1980’s Lawton 8 tenor piece. This mouthpiece measures .108” on my gauge.
Geoff Lawton was a long time designer and manufacturer of very well made saxophone mouthpieces in the UK. He began as a saxophone player and began producing pieces by the 1960’s until his death in 2003. He frequently improved his own designs and added more and more options for players looking for something special compared to the mass produced pieces that were found everywhere by the 1980’s.
This is the model with the slightly oval throat, medium large chamber and rollover baffle. As evidenced in the photos, there is a good deal of plating loss, and some smaller dings at the tip. There are also some slight side to side scratches at the corners along the side rails. It’s not clear if that is from work but it doesn’t appear very deep but should be noted.
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.
