Yamaha 5C Alto Mouthpiece (Ref 236)****SOLD****

Yamaha 5C Alto Mouthpiece (Ref 236)****SOLD****

Selling on behalf of the Estate of the late great jazz player and teacher, George Galway R.I.P..

Here’s a great opportunity to take ownership of this classic Yamaha Alto sax mouthpiece.
In ‘As New’ condition.

The Standard Series are made out of high quality phenol resin (plastic) and feature a design based upon the top grade Custom series.

They are extremely consistent in specifications and playing quality, and offer excellent value for their price.

The facing of this series is slightly shorter than that of the Custom series making them easier to play, and easier for beginning students to achieve a rich characteristic sound.

Includes: mouthpiece and box, no ligature or cap.

Description

This mouthpiece is part of the Estate of George Galway who passed away aged 79 in October 2020.

He began playing the saxophone professionally while still in his teens, as part of many dance showbands in late-1950s Belfast. 

He moved to Manchester in the 1970s and began a successful career as a music teacher, but still gigged constantly all around the country. 

George didn’t slow down in any way until about 2015, and having lived the world of jazz for nearly seven decades, he had built up an immense repertoire and wealth of knowledge about the saxophone instrument, with its many brands, series, metals, construction and playing techniques, mouthpieces and so on.
He carefully selected each piece over the years – both for their monetary investment value, as well as the personal joy he got from using them on one of his many saxes.
