1956 SELMER PARIS SHORT SHANK SOLOIST
These were the Classic Selmer mouthpieces of the 1950's. They had a Short almost Stubby Shank and the name engraved on the table "Soloist" and Tip Size
The first of these had an almost oval chamber, much like the Brilhart Ebolin and Tonalin Great Neck NY mouthpieces. There was a small flat at the back of the floor (front of the chamber) in their molds. This flat was enlarged by hand to make it more oval (Picture on Left). Later, the hand work to oval this section was not done (Picture in Middle). Finally the chamber became truly horse-shoe (or dome) shaped (Picture on Left).
The later horse-shoe shaped chamber mouthpieces are what is commonly referred to as the Selmer Short Shank mouthpieces. The two previous versions of this chamber were only made for a few years. All of these mouthpieces are enjoyed by the Jazz and Classical players alike.
The Selmer “Soloist” short shank hard rubber models came in sizes from B* to H. For reference an “E” is equivalent to an Otto Link 5, and an H is equivalent to an Otto Link 7*. The Selmer mouthpieces from B* to E all came with a medium length lay (the distance from the tip of the mouthpiece to the point where the reed meets the facing). The larger sizes F, G, and H only came with a SHORT length lay. Hence all the larger tip openings had a shorter lay than the smaller tip openings. This was an attempt to make them easier to play. However, the bottom end of the horn suffered tremendously because of this.
