Don’t Pigeonhole Mouthpieces; Show their Diversity

643 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Aquarian
Recently I was checking out YouTube videos of players testing and demo’ing tenor mouthpieces....

Ever notice how a player is demo’ing a Wanne Ambika automatically starts playing “In a Sentimental Mood” at like 40 bpm? Or a player demos a Durga and jumps straight to his best Lennie Pickettisms? Or a 10mFan Boss demo often goes straight toward growling and Clarence Clemons?

Each mouthpiece probably has a strength in a certain sound concept to be sure, but here’s a request to show the diversity of the mouthpieces in some of these demos.

“But Beautiful” on a Durga....“Yes and No” on an Ambika.... “Confirmation” on a Ponzol M2..... “Quarter Master” (Snarky Puppy) on a 10mFan “Classic”....

Not a sermon, just a thought....
