Meyer Bros. New York Alto Sax Mouthpiece

The popular Meyer Bros. New York alto sax mouthpiece from jj Babbitt has been reintroduced. This specific model is regarded as the finest Meyer Bros. hard rubber mouthpiece ever made by JJ Babbitt. This model is the original Meyer Bros. New York mouthpiece played by jazz musician Cannonball Adderley during the peak of his career. Cannonball’s mouthpiece developed a cracked shank and was retrofitted with a brass retention ring. To his surprise, it not only served to repair the shank but also improved its performance and projection. The brass ring is now standard equipment on the re-released model and adds an extra element of style.
