metal mouthpiece

  1. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    I'm curious on your guys opinion on this- I personally think they're both great mouthpieces but I recently purchased my first Theo Wanne (Durga 4) and I'm leaning that way for sure :treble: :cool: I do a brief comparison here:

    Has anyone tried a Landreth piece? Any thoughts? During a late night insomnia-induced ebay shopping trip a few weeks ago, I purchased a Landreth Modern Vintage 7* tenor mouthpiece. It still hasn't shipped yet and I haven't been able to find out much about them, so I'm wondering if anybody knows...

    Hi there, Has anyone tried Gear4Music's own metal sax mouthpieces? The price is amazing (if it's actually any good)! £42.99 . They also do soprano, alto and bari metal mouthpieces for similar prices...

    Hey everyone. So, I have this little question that I think might be useful for future mouthpiece shoppers. Background: I am looking to purchase a used mouthpiece (specifically, a Phil Barone Hollywood, 7/7* for tenor saxophone). Currently, I play an Otto Link Tone Edge (you know, the modern...

    Hello. After several years of not playing, I'm returning to practicing saxophone and learning jazz music. Currently I'm playing a Selmer Reference 54 tenor, with an Otto Link hard rubber (6 opening). It's a sweet mouthpiece if I want to play Paul Desmond/Stan Getz-sounding tunes, and it's one...

    Hi everyone, I recently purchased a new metal tenor moutpiece from amazon (link below), however something isn't right and being relatively new at the tenor sax I'm not really sure what. When I unpacked it and put on my #2 RICO tenor reeds on, it didn't fit correctly. It was too wide for the...

    I am lost in the long dark tunnel of searching for a mouthpiece. I have looked at a few different metal mouthpieces and was wondering what you guys used. Please include the size of the mouthpiece and what kind of sound you get out of it. Thanks! Here are some I have been looking at: Berg...

    Hello I play on a link STM 7 with my tenor, wich is very good for playing "classical" jazz to my sense: the sound is round, warm. But when I try to play more funky (I'm in a funk band :) ), the sound is not as crunchy, loud (even if I blow a lot), as I'd liked. I know it's not so easy to give...

    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...

    Hi everyone, I'd like to hear your opinion about the New Vintage Otto Link metal tenor mpcs: how do they compare to the usual modern STM or NY link? Are they worth the extra-bucks? Thank you in advance!

    Should I stick with 2-21/2 Vandoren Javas for my metal Ottolink or go up to 3-31/2 and play the same size on Tenor as I play on my Alto? I've heard you should stick with low numbers on metal mouthpieces. any opinions, questions?

    Hey all, currently looking for a metal (jazz) mouthpiece for my yamaha custom EX alto. I really want something a tad brighter than the meyer I have now, and definitely something with more body and projection. I want a LEAD alto piece. What kinds of experiences have y'all had with different pieces?
