    We Tried an Interesting Experiment. We took the power and projection of the Maestro Tenor Mouthpiece, reduced the size proportionately and created the Maestro Alto Hard Rubber mouthpiece. The result, due to the characteristic double-stepped baffle, was an extra sensitivity to the embouchure...
  2. Tenor mpc
    Hello guys, i've been playing tenor saxophone for about a year, so i want to try a new mouthpiece (change my yamaha 4c) and i was thinking of a vandoren v16 t6 HR. What do you guys think? Is it a good option? Thanks in advance
  3. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    Hi there, Can you please let me know what you thought worked well for you for alto sax if it is not one of a kind (I can count on buying it and getting pretty much the same praised quality). A hard rubber one for sure (for now). Works well with tip opening of #5 or #6 with a rich and warm tone...
  4. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    Hey guys Recently purchased a 10Mfan Robusto 7* HR and really enjoy playing it. It is very free & flexible and I particularly like the ease and intonation of altissimo. I see that there is a metal version of the Robusto, but its a lot of cash to shell out without trying it. If you have tried...
  5. Baritone mpc
    hi everyone, i love hard rubber mouthpieces, i feel uncomfortable with metal mouthpieces, and i loved the jumbo javas on alto and tenor, so, is there any HR bari mpc as bright as a jumbo java?, it should exist, so you guys may know, thanks!
  6. Soprano, Bass and Misc. mpc
    Hi everyone. Recently I bought a 1920 buescher tt curved soprano, and I was looking at mouthpieces. There are a lot of options, so I was wondering if I could get any recommendations on a large round chambered hr mouthpiece. Something dark and full but with some punch.
  7. Tenor mpc
    I've been using metal pieces for a while, mostly in large tips (10*) and it feels good but I'm interested in trying out a dark, hard rubber, large chamber piece that is (ideally) affordable. I've been VERY curious to maybe pick up a Drake Bergonzi 10* or a Son of Slant Large Chamber in the...
  8. Mouthpiece Maintenance, Modification & Refacing
    Hey Sax on the Web! I've been in marching band for several years. During these years, my private teacher has told me not to march my hard rubber Selmer C* mouthpiece because it warps the mouthpiece. Instead, I've had to suffer through on a plastic B5 educator mouthpiece during the season. Is...
  9. Mouthpiece Maintenance, Modification & Refacing
    Hi guys, So I've got a hard rubber mpc, and my metal ligature has managed to scratch the surface. I know it's only a cosmetic thing, but I would still like to know if there are any cheap-ish ways to either fill the scratch or possibly "colour it in"? The scratch isn't very deep, maybe 0.5mm...
  10. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Some discussion of another thread has lead me to post this thread, rather then hijack it. When I was playing alto in ninth grade, I switched from my S80 C* mouthpiece to a Meyer 6M, Small Chamber (wonderful mouthpiece). I used this mouthpiece in both concert band and the jazz ensemble. My...
  11. Alto mpc
    Does anyone have any information on the Conn Connstellation hard Rubber mouthpieces? I picked one up recently in a mixed box of mouthpieces. All I can read on the mouthpiece is Conn Connstellation 5. Looks to be a large chamber piece. Has vertical denim pattern facing. Sweet hard rubber smell to...

    Hi, I have this old Babbitt "artist" tenor mouthpiece. It plays just like an otto link HR. Does anyone have more info about them and when they were made?
  13. What to Buy & Why: Mouthpieces
    hey :) I'm a freshman in HS and this will be my third year on sax - I'm looking to buy a mouthpiece to use on the sax i'm renting from the school (right now the mouthpiece I'm playing on is a cheap one provided by the school, literally a ten dollar plastic piece of junk). in grades 7 - 8 i...
  14. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    How are they? Will I magically sound like him, just like THAT?!? Kidding, of course, but I'm curious how they sound. Right now I have a couple Otto Link rubber Tone Edge pieces, that are great. That nice smooth 'rubber', or 'not-metal' sound, plus just enough grit and cut to the sound...
  15. Mouthpiece Maintenance, Modification & Refacing
    I've read in numerous threads here that soaking your mouthpiece in Coke works just fine to remove stubborn calcium deposits. But I'm haunted by the scary story that used to make the rounds that Coke dissolves teeth (which would at least put the kibosh on buying a mouthpiece made of teeth, even...
  16. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hello all, I've been learning up some repair chops on old garage sale clarinets. I've got about half a dozen full repads under my belt now on old Signets and the like. Well now I'm doing a repad for someone, but it's an old hard rubber Pedler. Before I get to cleaning the body of this I...
  17. Alto mpc
    currently I'm using a link STM (6*), and its nice, but my backup piece, a Buffet hard rubber that came with my backup horn, is starting to be more enjoyable to play for a funky horn section. its less "in your face" than the link, which is buzzy and loud. I'm wondering if it'd be worth it to...
  18. Alto mpc
    Hello all. I have an hard rubber alto mouthpiece that I was told is a vintage Wagner. The ligature is a silver one-screw model - not sure if it's original, although the mouthpiece has maintained its original black color under this lig and has faded somewhat in the exposed areas. There are no...
  19. Ligatures
    hey, i use a hard rubber link on my tenor and i just bought a lebayle LR ligature (the one that looks like a napkin ring) and it was advertised that it would fit a rubber link, but it feels too small and won't even fit on the piece with the reed off. i tried someone else's lebayle lig on my...
