  1. What to Buy & Why: Mouthpieces
    So, life long Link player here. My current piece is a GS 7* Reso. But, for my main gig, I really need something that sounds like a Berg. Ideally it would have the same size and shape as my Link, but that aggressiveness and grit of the Berg (think Sam Butera/Jr. Walker). Any thoughts about where...
  2. Bb Tenor
    Not long ago I made a thread talking about my decision to buy either a Selmer Mark VII or a Cannonball vintage reborn. As you can see I got neither, as my opinion was swayed by literally one youtube video (Link below) and I fell in love instantly. I took to Reverb and found a nice looking...
  3. Tenor mpc
    Hi, I am trying a Slant Tone Edge (seems and was told is vintage), which sounds incredible despite chipped tip. While trying to identify the piece, there are two aspects that are intriguing and I have not been able to find an answer to explain them despite extensive search. First , it has a...
  4. Tenor mpc
    I recently acquired my first tenor (having played only alto and bari) and have been struggling with tuning and intonation. The horn is a 1953 Pan American that I won in an auction and immediately sent to George Jacobs (Jayelid here on SOTW - great guy to deal with btw) and the horn is in good...

    Would appreciate everybody’s input on this mouthpiece. Slightly slimmer body then a slant signature I have. Do you think this is a Florida or a Babbit? Pleasant surprise in a horn I just purchased. First post here. Thanks for your opinion.

The MacSax I had custom finished with 2 coats of silver colored nickel for...

  9. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    I'm digging a bit deeper into the history of my favourite mouthpieces: I own a Tonemaster from the 40s as well as Double Rings from the early (NY) and late (Florida) 50s. My pieces have lost the gold plating, but I find there is brass underneath. I have learned about the geometry of the...
