  2. Eb Alto
    Hello reader! I currently play on a Jody Jazz HR 6M alto piece and I feel that it is too dark for me. Unfortunately, the piece does not produce the sound I am searching for. I am aiming toward a David Sanborn tone; bright, raspy, and "edgy," and I've found two mouthpieces that seem to fit the...

    Dear SOTW members, Greetings. This is my first post and I feel rather excited to join this big family. I have been playing classical on Alto and the Kenny G things on a soprano over the past years. Lately, I decided to get myself a metal MPC on Alto so that I can start playing some Jazz. I...
  4. SOTW Member Recordings & Reviews
    Long story short, I was not happy with my current mouthpiece, after 1.5 years and love at the first sight, I decided that our relationship was not working out. Ponzol SS is a great mouthpiece but for my physiology I never could really find a way to pitch and focus the sound with it without...

    Hey guys, I'm brand new here to SOTW, but I need a little advice. I'm currently playing on a Meyer 5M alto mpc with a FL lig and green java 3's for jazz and looking for a new mcp. My question is what would be a good set-up/next level model mpc for me, I have interest in the New Jody Jazz HR's...

    Hi all! I'm a real fan of bright mouthpieces. I'm currently mainly a tenor player (Mark VI with a Guardala Brecker II, which I love!!!), but I've been starting to play alto lately as well. I've been looking into mouthpieces for it because the only one I have now is a Runyon Custom, which is...
  7. Ligatures
    One of the ligature screws of my Beechler Bellite #5 cannot be screwed and tighten anymore. I am thinking to buy a new ligature. I keep reading the previous posts about Beechler ligature and others ligature. Some said using the original ligature from Beechler is the best. Some said the screw...

    So.... I have played with my Vandoren Optimum AL3 for classical pieces for 6 years and Meyer 7 for Jazz pieces... I'm thinking about getting high baffle mouthpieces for smooth jazz stuff... and I tried to play Jumbo Java a45 for last couple monthes, but it just "completely" destroys my...
  9. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Anyone ever actually VISIT the Beechler factory in Northridge, CA before? If so, what was it like? I typed the factory address in google maps and saw the location...looks like a typical industrial park-type complex...

  11. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    Well since its almost Christmas my mom would get me something and I'm deciding on a mouthpiece. Right now it's between a Beechler Bellite 6/7 or a Vandoren Jumbo Java A45. I'm looking for a mouthpiece that I can hit high notes with ease and growl on them, also not a nasally (spelling?word?)...
