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.

Dukoff .107"
Medium / 24
Super Power Chamber Silverite M7  Miami, Florida. Previous owner has introduced a bullet chamber. Otherwise, the mouthpiece looks unplayed.
