  1. Mouthpiece Maintenance, Modification & Refacing
    So, I was lucky enough to pick up a recent V16 T9 metal piece "Large Chamber" for a silly price. - For those that don't know, the Large chamber is marketed as a 1940's style mouthpiece - I have always wanted to see how these things play, and although a 9 is outside my comfort zone it is a...
  2. Alto mpc
    Hi everyone! I'm currently looking at a Dukoff Super Power Chamber D6 for alto and was curious as to its validity as a legit piece and not a fake. I noticed this stamping error that I'm hoping will clue me in as to whether it's the real deal or not!
  3. Ligatures
    I play a yanagisawa metal mouthpiece, and lost the ligature it came with. Naturally I'm looking to upgrade now.
  4. Ligatures
    So I've been playing on the metal Yanagisawa sopranino mouthpiece and looking for a ligature. The mouthpiece appears to be a similar size to the HR nino pieces but can't be sure. Anyone have any experience in finding other ligatures for this piece that fit?

    Which would be a good Dukoff Hollywood type mouthpiece? Hi, I am looking for a metal mpc in Dexter Gordon sound direction. Any recommendation? Thanks!
  7. Ligatures
    Hello everyone, I have two of these ligature with exactly the same problem. When you actually tighten the ligature the nut gets loose and you cannot tighten it more or loosen it anymore which makes the ligature useless. The main issue is that the nut is not attached to the screw. I received my...

    Curious if anyone does this.
  9. Baritone mpc
    Does anyone have a Baritone London? What metal did you pick. How do you like it / can you describe / have clips? I used to have a Ted Klum facing on an average piece, and it was SO AWESOME. Still loving my Drake, just wondering if anyone has taken the $775 plunge.
  10. Alto mpc
    Hello reader! My main genre of choice to play is funk, and I don't think my mouthpiece can do the job for the style I am interested in. I currently play a Jody Jazz HR, and I am looking for a different mouthpiece with completely different characteristics. I am in search of a metal mouthpiece...
  11. 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...

  16. Alto mpc
    I think I have a selmar mouth piece (black plastic) and I'm interested in the metal mouth pieces. I've seen some other saxophones in my school use metal but I don't know anything about them. What would be the advantage of metal over plastic?

    I have read much controversy about this, just looking for more opinions. I've always liked the sound and feel of metals on tenor and Bari, and I have geard some very good tones on metal prices. Thoughts?

    I have stumbled upon a selmer metal mouthpiece at my local sax shop. It is used, but seems to be in good condition. I have played on metal pieces before (tenor and Bari), but not on alto. I hac found that there is quite a bit of controversy over a metal alto piece, but for Arguments sake, I'm...
