    I did this comparison for a friend of mine who, just like me, likes to compare gear. I'm not that much of a player, but I thought it might be interesting to let you share this riddle. My friend wanted something like R&B or Funk so I found a funky playalong in the net and played some pentatonic...
  2. Alto mpc
    I have been offered one of those (silver) and did not know there was a BM model for alto, let alone a Fatboy model. It's not cheap, around 1750 USD. I'm curious it they are that rare and what they will sound like. I remember the BM for tenor I had ten years ago had a fat focused sound with rich...

    Ever heard of a Landreth company? Here's an example of one listing I saw of them...
  5. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    I've heard the WWBW laser trim ones are quite free-blowing and similar to Brecker's actual one, but those are harder to find these days, what do you guys think about the PMS German made ones or the other ones out there (Borb Oliver, Sakshama's, RetroRevival, WWBW's, etc.)? I want more of a...

    I have been offered a handmade Guardala alto mouthpiece that I find interesting and would love to give a try if owner grants some days of trial. The lettering says it's a (G)old (S)uper (K)ing (C)urtis, and it's got a four digit serial number. I have read these are the most powerful and...

    Has anyone tried these two mouthpieces as to describe them and compare their sound please?

  10. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Hi folks, I'm about to get a BMSS mouthpiece from a friend of mine, but some sort of sixth sense tells me to double check on it. There are two things that annoys me. 1. I have a tenor Guardala piece (also a BM model) and coincidentally these two pieces have the same serial number!!! The only...

    I've got a Guardala MBII, which I love. However, it has a tendency to make the reed split, right where the rail meets the tip, for about 5 or 10mm, down the edge of the reed. It's as if the reed is too narrow (or mp too wide) and it just splits the edge right off. I've tried Rico Jazz selects...
  12. Baritone mpc
    I have been offered a DB handmade baritone silver plated baritone mouthpiece. I can't playtest it, so I need some advice here. It reveals the typical dot engraved DG, a T and a B on the other side of the shank and below a faint serial number which looks like 179. The mouthpiece is in original...
  13. B&S, Guardala and Huller
    Hello all. I'm selling my silver Guardala tenor. Made in Germany, New York series, serial 013,xxx. It's in fabulous condition, almost all of the original silver still remains. Just a few scratches and wears on the back where the neck strap hooks. I'm a pro player, and have kept it well...
  14. B&S, Guardala and Huller
    I have been offered this tenor saxophone and could find some information about the horn itself, but not about for what they go s/h. I don't want to rob the guy who's offering it, but don't want to pay too much on the other hand. What will be a fair price? From reading the information I found it...
  15. Tenor mpc
    I have been offered the Guardala King mouthpiece shown in the pictures. Well, the box says "Gold Plated", but it's raw brass. It has got the diagonal file marks alright, but there is no engraving whatsoever on the mouthpiece, and the bite-plate does not show the pink dental resin which is...
  16. Tenor mpc
    I was offered this piece by a friend who does not play it anymore, in fact has not been playing it for a long time. It's a handmade Guardala Crescent engraved "DG" on the top of the shank and "CRES G-917" on the side of the shank. I have owned and played 4-digit Crescent mouthpieces, but what...

    I bought this 3-digit Guardala MB II and the guy who sold it only just told me the damage you see in the baffle is a hole that goes "through the roof". He said he fixed the bite plate with the original pink dental resin. The bite plate in fact looked original to me from the pics, so I was misled...

    I tripped over this one by chance. Most people will have turned away when they saw it, but pieces with such a history and playing wear are always like books to me. Serial is 732, it says GMB on the shank, and the lacquer is almost completely gone. You feel the bare brass when your fingers slide...

    Just got footage clipped from a fundraising event where I frantically was finding people to cover spots. Anyone have any comments on myself, the tenor player, or my friend Jason on alto?
