Berg Larsen
.099"
Medium-Small / 26
Chrome plated 110/2/SMS Short scoop bill, Step Baffle, sideways milling lines on table. Original ligature
€220
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.
€205
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.
€220
Dukoff
