I'm looking for a bright, powerful alto mouthpiece for an old Buescher Big B horn I just bought. I never see any discussion of Guardala, Barone or Sugal mouthpiece for alto, so what's up?

Try a Guardala Studio - excellent alto mpc for what you're looking for.

Thanks. I have and like the tenor Studio. Alto Guardalas are hard to find. Who sells them (WW&BW do not have them on their website or catalogue)?

WW&BW do not have Guardala alto's in the catalog anymore. Perhaps someone else knows the scoop.

L.A. Sax is handling Guardala's products now, and the new 'Laser-Trimmed' model is just starting to be distributed for tenor. Perhaps the alto models will follow soon.

LASax says they will be out in 30 - 60 days and to get them from WW&BW.

From what I hear, the new ones are worth the wait.
