"Shorty" Replica 1950's Selmer Short Shank Soloist Alto
Now Hand Finished!!
Retro Revival’s “Shorty” is our stunning replica of the 1950’s Selmer Soloist coined by pros as the 'Scroll Shank' or 'Short Shank’. Table Stamped with the Tip size.
This classic Selmer mouthpiece was known for its warmth, fast articulation and great intonation. The “Soloist” is most notably demonstrated by the great Kenny Garrett and many others. Kenny as we all know gets an amazing sound.
The Retro Revival “Shorty” replica, with it’s 'horseshoe chamber' captures that inherently warm mid-range beauty and will easily let you play gritty and ferociously when pushed harder. Its fat and warm and deep and very complex.
Original untouched 'Short Shank' Selmer E's .78mm are very difficult to locate and rarely found with tip openings larger than a “E”. Our Retro Revival “Shorty” is available with "D, E, F and G Tip openings.
Our “Shorty” was modeled and replicated from a spectacular playing Vintage 1950's Scroll Shank Selmer Soloist Table Stamp Alto Sax Piece one we had in our private collection or Rare sax mouthpieces. This wonderful piece is also great for Classical musicians as well.
BUYERS PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MOUTHPIECE COMES WITH A COMPLIMENTARY RICO H BRASS LIGATURE AND CAP. THE SELMER MODEL IS A TAD THINNER SO THE LIGATURE WORKS BUT THE SCREWS WILL BE TIGHTENED ALL THE WAY.
IT'S SUGGESTED THAT YOU CAN FIND YOUR OWN STYLE LIGATURE.
