    Hi all, I'm looking for some help understanding this Precision Crafted mouthpiece in my possession. I know that they were made by Phil Barone, but I cannot seem to find any other information about it. It looks like it was made from a Guardala blank. Is that the case? Are these mouthpieces...

    Hi there, I thought I make this thread directly to do with Eric Falcon's Warburton J tenor saxophone mouthpiece (I believe it was made back in 2009/2010). I found NOS ones at Brass and Woodwind, in Victoria BC, Canada. I sent the link to Eric and he confirmed it was his work. It has a golden...

    The Stephan Kammerer DM Origin, designed with David Mann, is just terrific IMO guys. I don't know that I'll ever lust after another metal piece. It's got everything I hoped it would. It lets me do what I want to do. It's a perfect compliment to the Theo Wanne Slant Sig hard rubber, and I'm quite...

    After 33 years playing the same Meyer 6M mouthpiece on my tenor, I’m looking to move to something bigger. Something that might give me access to altissimo notes, allow me to shape the sound a bit more, and project without the sound getting too spread. (Looking to bring out more buzzyness/edge...

    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!

    I recently acquired a Brilhart Ebolin tenor mouthpiece and I'm hoping to get some help figuring out its age. The mouthpiece was in the case of a 1968 Mark VI that I found at a garage sale. The seller told me it had been sitting in a closet untouched for at least 15 years. I've done some...

    I'm an intermediate player. Mostly Gospel, Blues and Jazz on a Conn 110M DJH Modified tenor sax. I use a Rico 2.5 reeds, sometimes a 3. A friend is letting me try out a couple mouthpieces to buy. I have been playing a Yamaha 5C for a long time and am a little frustrated with it. By comparison...

    Hey there! I just posted a similar post on the alto mouthpiece thread. One of the technicians that I frequent was trying to get rid of a bunch of mouthpieces that he had laying around. He had a bin of mostly no name stock mouthpieces and chipped up 4C's, and told me I could take anything I...

    OK, so I have this mouthpiece from back in my High School days which I recently unearthed from my parent's place and it looks like it is in outstanding condition. It's a Vandoren V16 metal mouthpiece stamped 92AH with a T95 tip opening. So I tried scouring Vandoren's site for information on...

    Greetings all! I recently came across this double ring super tone master and was hoping to get some advice on what to do with it. The tip, rails, and table are immaculate. It's a 5, so a pea shooter for most pros. I've never been a big vintage mouthpiece guy, so my questions are as follows: 1...
  11. What to Buy & Why: Mouthpieces
    to a better mouthpiece. Been playing tenor and bari on and off for over 40 years. Fast forward to 2010. I start playing again but quit because rehearsal was over an hour drive. After about a five year break, I picked up my tenor once again and started playing in a horn band. You know, Chicago...

    Hi there, I have a Berg Larsen metal 100/1 tenor mouthpiece that is refaced by Brian Powell. It sounds easier to player now (refaced to 0.101). It seals like crazy but at the same time I feel I like to have a bit more free blowing experience without reducing the strength of the reed when the...

    Hey, I'm currently studying music in University and I want to invest in a good tenor jazz mouthpiece/lig. I've played jazz before but always on whatever stock mp was available, as alto is my primary. I've been reading some reviews and opinions on which mouthpieces (and ligatures) are good or...

    So I bought this old Vox-branded, Beaugnier alto off ebay with the intent to restore. It was a cheap buy, which is good because the sax was in worse condition that I expected and the case has the worst smell I've ever encountered. There were several Brilhart mouthpieces inside the case, which I...

    Marmaduke ML (Medium Chamber) model has dark sound yet is not stuffy. Tony Lakatos plays 8*. He switched from a metal piece and back to a rubber piece. I do the facing and play test every piece. Tony Lakatos plays Marmaduke ML mouthpiece https://youtu.be/J_aNC_5vPL4...

    I recently acquired this used mouthpiece for a very reasonable price. It has a really fat sound, and is quite powerful. However, it has no markings on it whatsoever besides a small number "7" on the back which you can see in the accompanying pictures. It is also a fairly skinny mouthpiece and...

    Hello everyone. After searching for quite some time, I *think* I found the mouthpiece I am looking for (and will probably check it out in person, either way): http://www.pmwoodwind.com/instruments.cfm?c=2&instrumentid=4212&morepics=1 My question: these ones, I presume, are some of Phil's later...

    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...
