    Hi there, I thought I make this thread directly to do with Eric Falcon's Warburton J tenor saxophone mouthpiece (I believe it was made back in 2009/2010). I found NOS ones at Brass and Woodwind, in Victoria BC, Canada. I sent the link to Eric and he confirmed it was his work. It has a golden...
  2. What to Buy & Why: Reeds and Misc.
    Hi there, I found out Alexander Superial #3 is perfect fit for my SR Tech Pro tenor sax mouthpiece (.108 tip opening). I bought a pack of Alexander Superial for my alto that was mostly not working well and heard from other people about consistency issues with Alexander reeds. I also heard Marca...

    Hi there, I have a refaced recent production Meyer 5+ (around 72 or 73/1000 inch tip opening). The facing curve is in a way that with my embouchure I get a nicely defined tone on Vandoren Traditional #3 reed but it feels as if the heart or between heart and thicker part of the vamp a bit too...

    Hi there, I've recently got a used Warburton LA 6* tenor sax mouthpiece that I LOVE. Thanks to Eric Falcon for his work on this. This mouthpiece resonate so well that I found my current Rigotti Gold 2 1/2 light is giving too much buzz. Since I really like Rigotti Gold, I was thinking of buying...

    I am getting a box of Alexander Superial reeds in a few days. I am currently using Vandoren ZZ's, does anyone know how these two reeds compare to each other? With the ZZ's I am getting a very colorful and bright sound that I like, but I am also trying other reeds like these Alexander's.

    Could anyone enlighten me about how Alexander reeds compare to Vandoren reeds? Not the strength - I know that Alexanders run about half a strength softer, if my memory serves me right - but in the quality (sound, response). I have played Vandoren Traditionals, V16's, ZZ's, and Java Reds, so...

    I've been checking out a few of my alto and tenor pieces this summer. After all that messing around, I'm finding myself digging this Sakshama Link all the more... It's a 6* refaced to an 8, and I have no idea what entails "Florida inspiration," but the piece is really a pleasure to play...

    I recently had a jazz band gig where an alumni student came back to play with us. This student is a great sax player and I have always looked up to him and taken most of his advice. So when we were talking about our different set-ups and he mentioned Alexander NY reeds. I plan on trying a box of...
