Joe Crossman mouthpieces, with solid silver inlay is a fine example of a technique and standard of workmanship hardly seen today.
This mouthpiece has a large ballooned out tone chamber, typical of pre-war designs, with a much closer tip opening than found on today’s mouthpieces.
The silver inlays were a hangover from the wooden mouthpiece days when the lay had to be 'held' in a substance that obviously moved when both wet and warm. Nevertheless it also offered a more precise clear-cut tone than just finishing in ebonite.
Wear & Tear Observations: This mouthpiece is in good condition for its age with no damage to the tip or rails. There is some very slight wear to the logo but other than this is in very good order.
