  1. Baritone mpc
    Hello! I just discovered Bob Gordom's playing, and I'm in love with his sound. I'm wondering if anyone knows what he was using. All the pictures I can find show him using a white mouthpiece that looks like maybe a Runyon, but I'd be interested to know its size, etc., or if that's not a...
  2. Tenor mpc
    I was just wanting to get some information and opinions (if possible) on an old mouthpiece I was given. I have not been able to find anything on it online so I might already have my answer. I was also told it was a vintage. But it is a tenor Runyon #6 and it has a grey/metal band around the...
  3. Runyon ONLY
    Born the 4th of July in 1907, Santy Runyon would grow up to totally revolutionize mouthpieces and shape the growth of the saxophone and jazz throughout the 20th century. He was a pivotal figure in the growth and development of the instrument. (Along with people like Brilhart, Guardala, and...
  4. Alto mpc
    I'm visiting my parents in Moscow, Idaho, and stopped by Keeney Brothers, which is a great local music shop. Not a huge selection of wind instrument gear, but they sometimes get interesting things, especially since the University of Idaho is home to the Lionel Hampton School of Music and Keeney...
  5. Runyon ONLY
    I just wanted to post that this mouthpiece has made be so unbelievably happy. Soprano rookie here, just for fun, jam with friends here and there. I got a cheap Allora soprano from WWBW, bought a metalite M7, Rico H Lig, Legere 2.25 Tuning was all over the map, could not play with others. So I...
  6. Alto mpc
    A few weeks ago I decided to buy a Runyon Custom (not the jazz) with the spoiler, to replace my hand-customized yamaha 4c (I'm primarily a tenor player, and according to most of my teachers and peers I'm pretty good, not to be vain, so please don't take my alto setup as if I'm a noob)... I had...
  7. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    So I'm still playin on a selmer c* and I need a new piece. I play lead in the band, but the combo wants to check out rock, funk, and smooth jazz. I have a dark sound, want a brighter one and have read tons of forums on this. I have come down to these two mouthpieces, the jumbo java and runyon...

  9. Runyon ONLY
    I will let the pictures explain. All I know is they are both marked Runyon. The white one has no other markings, but appears and plays to be about the same tip opening as the black one (9). Any help would be great! http://s1184.photobucket.com/albums/z324/steperry1/
  10. Runyon ONLY
    I play a stock Meyer 6M right now. I have wanted something brighter for a long time but really wanted to master this thing first:banghead:. I hear Quantums are great on tenor but haven't heard much about them on alto. I'm thinking of trying the Quantum or Smoothbore. Does the Q have a small...

    Hi people... Any suggestions on which Runyon shall I get? For alto sax...
  12. Ligatures
    Looking for a Francois Louis Ultimate ligature for my Quantum Bari piece, not sure what size will fit it though. Anyone have an ideas? The shops near me don't carry all the sizes, and they're way overpriced, so I have to order online.
  13. Soprano, Bass and Misc. mpc
    I've been bored lately and decided to make a small video of my new Runyon Custom Spoiler soprano piece... I just used a small crappy digital camera to make this and the vid/sound is not perfect but you can get the general idea... www.facebook.com/v/1454272669333" /><embed...
