  1. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    I have modern Dukoff D8 alto (plays OK) and it has flat area immediately behind the barely noticeable tip rail, as I can see older Miami has normal tip rail and straight to baffle behind. Would it be wise to remove this flatness and make tip just Miami version? Pics, mine and two Miami (from...

    While copying a tenor mouthpiece for a peer I inadvertently used a defective riggotti (her preferred reed) that was not as wide as most. After racking my brain as to why the piece wouldn't respond quickly enough with the reed I was using I tried one last time only with the actual reed I used as...

    I've read various articles in regards to this, but i'm really troubled on a 2nd mouthpiece choice i currently use an AL3 with a rico h, legere SS 2.5. which i've always loved and is very easy to use. I may return the otto link stm 6* i bought in order to demo, but it's very difficult to try out...

    Hey everyone. So, I have this little question that I think might be useful for future mouthpiece shoppers. Background: I am looking to purchase a used mouthpiece (specifically, a Phil Barone Hollywood, 7/7* for tenor saxophone). Currently, I play an Otto Link Tone Edge (you know, the modern...

    Strange question, I understand. Here's why I ask it: a little over a week ago, I purchased this Berg Larsen 105/3M tenor piece secondhand. Now, it's my understanding that the "3" indicates a lack of a baffle, with "0" being a very high baffle. Yet, looking into the mouthpiece, I see... well...

    Hi there, I'm play testing / experimenting with my new Gaia 6* hard rubber mouthpiece. Theo is the facing curve king. The mouthpiece is so user friendly from the top to the bottom of the sax. The sound has a nice mix of lows, low mids, and high mid frequencies. I would prefer I could keep the...

    There are heaps of mouthpieces modeled on the vintage Meyers but are there any modeled on the other classic, the soloist? I predominantly play Alto on a vintage soloist with a .82 opening and I absolutely love the dark sound with edge, that it manages to get. Many people say this is the really...

    Hi there, I really didn't realize the impact of bore difference so much. I was more focusing on the chamber impact. I must admit I don't quite know the impact of either of them. I bought a Dukoff LD7 recently and I got a comment about it: " it is quite unique; full sized chamber with a very...

    Hey everyone, I have a Theo Wanne Kali, and I feel it is a bit too bright and thin, especially in the higher register. Is there something a person who works on mouthpieces can do to help that? I heard that lowering the baffle might help??

    Hi All, I'm a longtime lurker, first time poster. I know a lot of people talk about different types of music they play, which I love (I started by playing Jazz and still love it) but nobody seems to mention Ska music! I'm hoping to get some ideas on what kind of horns people are playing ska on...

    I just purchased a '25 HN White King (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110510569919) and put my Rousseau JDX5 on it and it sounded awful. I had three other mpc's, but they have no names on them. There is one that sounded fairly good and I noticed it had thicker rails, a...

    Well my sister gave me some poster putty and I read on these forums sort of about making homemade baffle things. So I experimented with that on one of the schools 'cheap' mouthpieces (the ones we give to lower ranked saxophonist). Well ever since I made that baffle thing inside of this 'junk'...

    Hey Everyone, First of all, I want to thank the SOTW audience for their insights and for the wonderful responses to our mouthpiece line. I really hope that I do not come off as someone "pushing" products and services. We have had many inquiries about our proprietary facing curves used on our...
