Wonderful old hard rubber Berg, crisp fast and extremely clear powerful sound. These are of course more and more rare, wonderful players! Bite area probably used to have a disintegrated rubber patch that was cleaned off.
This is a very old transitional Berg, 1950’s or earlier; type font facing stamp, denim table, offset SMS facing stamp. I have optimized this facing and tip it’s a player and not a huge tip size. Wonderful tone!
This is a transitional very early Berg model, long long biteplate, long shank, likely soon after the slant sigs. Table milling is denim, facing stamp is old type font; this is very rare. It plays bright edgy and powerful, not shy at ALL.I’ve done a little bit of work on the facing and tip making it true and balanced.
This piece is quite a player. It had denim table, with some rust and I cleaned that up. The tip and rail work were spectacular, probably done by Berg himself. I left most of that as it was with just some very gentle adjustment and clean up. The facing curve I adapted to the new clean table. The tip measures .118 at the inner tip rail so likely to be right on .120 at the end. This piece plays really amazingly well. It’s big, larger than I normally play, but still it plays very sparkly and defined for me.
Highly desired both tip size and model, denim table old model, Offset-M 110 stamped. These are very hard to find and players seem to love them. This is the actual thing. The table appears visually spotty but in fact has no significant pits of rust, just surface blemished. Tip is quite nice.
Otto Link Slant signature NY early version, small tip size, large chamber great hard rubber.
