Here’s a hard rubber Freddie Gregory Mark IV 7** tenor saxophone mouthpiece. I really miss this tenor sax mouthpiece. I sold it not too long after I bought it because I thought it was too bright. To be honest, there were quite a few gigs I had during that time that were amazing with this mouthpiece. I’m sad that I sold it. I haven’t seen a hard rubber Mark IV since then anywhere. I think that is a sign that the people that have them are keeping them. The Freddie Gregory Mark IV tenor saxophone mouthpiece has a higher baffle than the Mark II model Freddie Gregory tenor sax mouthpiece. It’s a bit brighter than the Mark II, but not too bright in my opinion. I’ve played this on all types of gigs and it holds it’s own. I rank it up there with my Jon Van Wie Otto Link as far as versatility goes. Nice and bright when I want it but I can still play the standards. Check it out!
