Berg Larsen
"Scoop" 110-2-M
Tenor Sax Mouthpiece

I measure this 110-2-M mpc at 0.105"

SOLD

This is a Berg Larsen "Scoop Bill" Mouthpiece.
Not sure how to assign a date to it.
The Scoop Bill has a pronounced upward scoop right behind the bite-plate.
It comes with its original ligature and cap. The tips and rails are in excellent condition.
The bite plate is also in very good condition, with little wear.

Here is the Theo Wanne webpage for Berg Larsen
It appears this mouthpiece is a "Scoop Bill" with the drop-off baffle instead of a bullet chamber.

The facing is designated as:

110
2
M

The "110" indicates a 0.110" tip opening, but I measure it to be a bit smaller.
The "2" is the baffle/chamber designator. "0" is high baffle, small chamber, bright. "3" is low baffle, large chamber, dark.
This mouthpiece with the "2" chamber would be relatively dark, but with some "bite".
The "M" indicates a Medium facing length.

This mouthpieces comes with original Berg Cap and Lig.

SOUND/PLAYING CHARACTERISTICS
**Beefy Berg
**3.75 on the brightness scale [Brightness scale 1-5 (1=dark, 5=brilliant)]
**Nice balance between baffle and tip opening to achieve the ôSonny Rollins' sound without having to play a huge tip (S.R played a 130?!)

Here is a sound sample of the of this mouthpiece (click the "Play" button):
