Berg Larsen
.099"
Medium-Small / 26
Chrome plated 110/2/SMS Short scoop bill, Step Baffle, sideways milling lines on table. Original ligature. 
€220
Berg Larsen
.125"
XSmall / 24
Stainless Steel 130/1/SMS (Slanted print, but NOT slant signature) Duck Bill. Denim table. This one of the early Bergs, made after the "slant signatures" in the late 40's / early fifties. Very good player. A good Berg has more body to the tone than a Guardala, and can play just as loud. Plays well with a 2,5 reed. Altissimo is super easy. Original box.
€330
Brilhart

.091"
Medium / 30
Brilhart Level-Air 5 s/n 3172 Stainless Steel. This is the version made before Selmer in 1966 took over Brilhart company as seen by the milling marks across the table and the glossy baffle. These are better players than the later ones. Very interesting mouthpiece for those who like Berg Larsen and Dukoff. Has a surprisingly dark core, but can also really wail.
€139
Dukoff .088"
Small / 23
Silverite P6 (Dukoff stamp missing) with original box. New demo piece from shop. Good sound, edgy but absolutely not thin. Good for funk and acid jazz. Table flattened. Facing optimized. Very good player now.
€140
Dukoff .107"
Medium / 24
Super Power Chamber Silverite M7  Miami, Florida. Previous owner has introduced a bullet chamber. Otherwise, the mouthpiece looks unplayed. Facing curve is perfect, and mpc plays very easily (Rico Jazz 2M). Sound is rather dark and not thin. Has a pleasant sizzle to it. Reminds me of the H-model. New original box. A real bargain.
€165
Dukoff

Dukoff
.127"
Medium / 27
Dukoff "Original Large Chamber" LD 10 Miami, Florida, with ligature. Almost like new. Plays effortless from top to bottom. Sound is "Linkish" and more full than the D model. Powerful and with a nice edge. Can compete with electric guitars, but also useful for jazz. Use La Voz MS €200
Guardala .105"
Medium / 24
Original Dave Guardala handmade Dave Liebman Pure Brass s/n 1 H 7 (Box says Silver Plated) Very good shape. This model has a dark core and a penetrating edge. It is a very versatile mouthpiece which is a pleasure to play. Altissimo is very easy. Works fine with La Voz Medium and Rigotti Gold 3. Comes with Rovner ligature and cap and original cylindrical cardboard box. Free shipping.
€989
Guardala (WWBW)
.109"
Small / 35
CNC Guardala MB II (WWBW, USA) Silver plated. This one plays exactly as it should. The laser-trimmed Guardalas made by WWBW are widely regarded as the best. This mpc confirms it. It is simply great fun to play. The owner used a black Winslow ligature. If you want that also, add 60 €

Large / 27
Freddie Gregory Hard Rubber Mark II 6* Super De Luxe. Original in very good shape. Made in England, before Freddie moved to Spain. Almost plays by itself. It is difficult to describe the sound. Slightly smokey. More similar to Meyer Bros, New York than Otto Link. It feels as if you can model the sound to your wish. Not sure about the price. These can be absurdly expensive.  Make an offer. Prefer to sell to a player in Europe.

Sakshama Guardala
Plastic
.135"
Small / 27
Sakshama G (Guardala clone) Black Delrin. This is a surprisingly good mpc. And a very good alternative to a metal laser trimmed. The metal has more core, but try a heavy ligature (Rovner) and a La Voz reed. Great fun to play. Cuts like the real stuff, so an affordable alternative to a metal copy.
