Zagar?...vibraloy is not exactly black, but its a dark grey sort of colour.

This is possibly the stupidest way to select a mouthpiece yet devised though.

Find the one that works for you, and then paint it if you have too! Or just stick to hard rubber...its already black. Jumbo Java? Sounds like metal;)

You could try to get a mouthpiece black nickel plated. That would be pretty slick looking.

Maybe you should go back to bed, and don't get up until you realise that looks does not matter? :)

I play a metal Rovner mpc that is black. I don't think they are produced anymore. On their homepage they only show brass coloured mpc:s.

Is there anyone who makes an aluminum mouthpiece? You could get one of those and have it anodized. Of course, it would eventually poison and kill you, but that's the price you pay for picking a mouthpiece in such a specious manner...

You really shouldnt worry about what color your mouthpiece is...

I hate to see someone buying a mouthpiece for its looks. It's tiny...and usually in your mouth, so buy one that sounds good.

Me, too. Besides, your options for a black metal mouthpiece are few and far between. If you're hung up on black, get a good hard rubber piece; there are dozens of models to choose from.....daryl

yes, but the tone, think about the tone!
Forget about the tone ... who cares -- it's all about looking stylish! I am still waiting for a solid gold mouthpiece with diamond inlays! If Paris Hilton would play saxophone mouthpieces wouldn't look so dull and "functional"! :x

That's a great way to select a mouthpiece...
At least in the sense that it restricts drastically your viable options to just 2: Zagar Cool/Hot School and Brancher B series. They are also quite different, the Brancher being much brighter.
I have a Cannonball Raven and aesthetically speaking the Zagar is a perfect match. Sonically I don't think so, I like that piece in other tenors but not so much on the Cannonball (the bronze SBB is, but isn't black). Since looks is your driving factor I think a Zagar Cool or Hot School is a safe bet. And also a very afforable one.

p.s. Lookwise the Saxscape slim profile is black and as close as it comes to a metal piece. Another option...
