  1. Alto mpc
    For years the only alto mpc I played regularly was my old Selmer Super Session D. It's a truly great piece. But I have others that I've bought over the years just because they were there (LOL) and now that I'm back into playing alto a lot I have started playing them interchangeably with the SS...

  4. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Yesterday I had a revelation. I’ve been frustrated for a while about my soprano mouthpiece(s). Yesterday I suddenly remembered that I also have an Otto Link TM (6*) that I had considered too steep for me for now. I put it on the soprano and it played like a dream compared to my other mp’s. I...
  5. Alto mpc
    I'm playing a hard rubber Meyer 5 on lead alto in my 8-member swing band. I like warmth in my tone, but I can't compete with the brass, or even the tenor player who is using a metal mpc. Is there a mouthpiece that might help me get louder without losing the warmth? I wondered if a metal mpc...
  6. Alto mpc
    I"ve been playing alto for about five years, and I was looking for a jazz mouthpiece recently this past summer. I picked up the Meyer 5M, and I really am not liking its sound. So I was doing some mouthpiece shopping, and I found the Rico Metalite. Does anyone know anything about this...
  7. What to Buy & Why: Mouthpieces
    Hi there, Has anyone tried Ted's model alto mouthpiece? Apparently it came out a few months ago. Perhaps it is the refinement to the classic alto mouthpiece model. Ted mentioned that the new model (Ted Klum Model Alto) has a more consistent baffle compared to Classic Alto Mouthpiece. It is made...
  8. Alto mpc
    Hi there, I asked this from MojoBari as a reply to his comment but I thought I make it a separate entry since MojoBari may not be available to answer that. I was trying to find out Alto sax S80 C* mpc chamber size. Is it large chamber, Medium, or Small? I thought focus is one of the...

  10. Alto mpc
    I just made this short clip for my own comparison of four alto mpcs. Just wonder what people's opinion's are on the differences they hear if any / if they prefer the sound of any of them. I've attached the clip below but here is a dropbox link if it doesn't work...
  11. Alto mpc
    Hi All, I am looking for a cheap reliable mouthpiece that is going to cut through in the Funk/Reggae band I play in as the Selmer C# I am currently using just doesn't cut through... So to keep this short and sweet, I am looking for a loud mouthpiece which still has a nice darkish tone and have...

    Hi guys, I'm new to the forum. Has anybody tried he palatino alto sax mouthpiece? I saw that it's a reasonable price and was considering it for my son because we are a bit tight on cash right now. Thoughts?
  14. Alto mpc
    Hi I really wanted to buy a Selmer Soloist mouthpiece, but I don't know which facing to get. I want the darkest facing so I don't want to make a mistake and buy bright sounding mouthpiece haha. I usually play on a Vandoren AL3.
  15. Mouthpiece Maintenance, Modification & Refacing
    Just about to acquire a nice selmer airflow alto piece, though the tip opening is tiny. Like really tiny. (0.55 on alto!) Just wondering if anyone has had these refaced and opened with success? If so then how do you find the large chamber interact with a wider opening? I believe it's one of...
  16. Alto mpc
    Hi All, Aside from my regular refacing work, I've been developing a new alto piece for a while. Over the summer David Mann came by at KB Saxophone Services and fell in love with the piece. David had so many nice things to say about the piece that we decided on making a video to present the...

    Hi guys, I'm new here and I wanted some opinions on a few Claude Lakey mouthpieces for the alto sax I've been looking for a new mouthpiece for a while and after asking around a bit Claude Lakey seemed like a good choice I want a bright, "cut-through" kind of sound but I don't want to sacrifice...
  19. Mouthpiece Maintenance, Modification & Refacing
    Hi all, I've been working on refacing ebonite mouthpieces recently and I can't find a way to tighten or close up chambers. The mouthpieces I've been using are pretty loose on the neck of the sax (and I know my cork isn't too small) so any way to make chambers smaller or any advice in general...
  20. Alto mpc
    So I was thinking about selling some of my saxophones, and found that my slant sig alto, which is in my buescher case, has the original box with it, but it was in my selmer case with another mouthpiece. I had no idea I even had the box. I can't find any information on this particular box. It is...
