CT SCANNED vintage saxophone mouthpiece reproductions:
New digitally scanned vintage saxophone reproduction mouthpieces.
Falcon Woodwinds is starting with an incredible original Florida STM tenor reproduction, and the other popular models will become available after this.
This is the project that I am helping with along with Doug Webb and Eric Falcon of Falcon Woodwinds.
We are proud to announce the first of the CT SCANNED replica mouthpieces.
We have started off with a phenomenal vintage ORIGINAL Otto Link STM NO USA 8, NO SERIAL model that the 3 of us agreed on as being the perfect candidate for the Florida replica tenor STM mouthpiece. I would describe this as fat and colorful with punch...in other words, the CLASSIC metal Florida Link vibe. This is not a Link on steroids, this is a classic faithful reproduction using 21st century technology and traditional hand craftsmanship to deliver the result the finest timeless Links delivered.
I am helping Eric Falcon and Doug Webb on this project as a consultant, and I will be in charge of shipping and marketing. This is completely separate from, and completely opposite of, what I produce for my own 10MFAN mouthpiece line. Honestly, it will be nice to have a hand in both the original design mouthpiece world, and the vintage reproduction world. Happy to be involved in both endeavors, and passionate to not mix the two.
This project is about CT SCANNING the finest vintage saxophone mouthpieces between the 3 enormous mouthpiece collections we have, and release what we consider to be the best examples of those models to the public. CT SCANNING is as accurate as you can get. Eric will be hand finishing every mouthpiece himself, and we will be offering this model in silver plate.
In addition to the incredibly costly process of CT scanning a classic Florida STM, we are aiming to reproduce the original facing curve geometries and finishing styles in order to reproduce a truly authentic playing experience and harmonic spectrum. The goal of this entire project is to remake a set of timeless classics as faithful to the originals as possible. This Florida Link will not be 2 halves soldered together. We can cut the correct geometry while using todays 5 axis machining technology. This machine technology helps us create an incredibly consistent end result.
The first 100 orders will be offered at an incredibly generous set price of $499 including USPS Priority mail shipping with insurance WORLDWIDE.
After the first 100 have sold, we are aiming for the price to be set somewhere around $599 plus shipping. We expect the first 100 orders to sell within 4 weeks or so, so place your order to reserve this price for yourself. I will post once the first 100 orders are all taken.
You will need to make payment up front by contacting me to place your order. We are looking at launching the first 100 finished mouthpieces in about 5 or so weeks from when the order has been placed. When Eric has completed the pieces and they are plated, they will be sent to me, and then I will send them out to the clients.
We use CT SCANNING because it reaches a resolution and detail level impossible to match with hand measurements and traditional modeling methods. (In other words, we've removed eye-balling and guessing from the equation).
CT SCANNING is accurate to 3 microns!
We are setting the record straight with the 1st full line of CT SCANNED mouthpieces, that are as accurate as can possibly be.
There is nothing in the marketplace like this, and we are very proud to be producing the most as-close-to perfect, accurate reproductions available to players EVER.
No built up baffles, no modified chambers, no changes to the sidewalls, no changes to the throat squeezes, no raised floors, no altered beaks, no long facings, no window adjustments, etc, etc.....
This project is about truth (no mods other than the slight angling of the table to get all the different tip openings ), and accuracy with every single model we release.
The first piece came out great and we are immensely happy to now be taking orders.
We will be offering these tenor mouthpieces initially in tip sizes 6, 6*, 7, 7*, 8, 8*, 9, 9*.
Silver plated body with black tooth plate.
I am shipping the mouthpieces myself from Florida, and I want you to have the utmost confidence that you will be dealing with me directly with the shipping.
We do not have a finished plated product to show you yet, but needless to say, it will look exactly like a Florida STM tenor mpc in silver plate with a different name on it.
THESE WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE NAMM SHOW WITH ERIC FALCON AND DOUG WEBB, ALONG WITH MY ENTIRE LINE OF 10MFAN MOUTHPIECES.
