    Hey everyone! I got my hands on the brand new 10mfan "Classic" (2nd generation) tenor mouthpiece in ULTEM material. This thing PLAYS!!

    Hey everyone! Here is the brand new Daddy-O generation 2 alto sax mouthpiece in the slick new ULTEM material. This mouthpiece has tons of warmth but also can pack a punch if you need it! For those wondering, I do like this one a tiny bit more than the generation 1 - it feels a bit warmer...
