I bought a used sax recently
A metal Guy Hawkins #8 was included.
I am such a new player that I can't use it well yet.
I was thinking of trading it in for a nice rubber mouthpiece.
I like the bigger mouthpieces. I am 6'4" and a huge mouth
I think the little metal mouthpiece feels wierd.
my question is two fold.

1) What is a general consensus of Guy Hawkins MP? They seem nice.
2) Any sugestions for a bloke with a huge mouth in the way of rubber?
I play blues and rock mostly.

THANK

The guy hawkins are pretty nice, I played one for a period about two years ago, but my girlfriend started using it and we broke up, and I never saw it again. The Guy Hawkins is a good piece for blues and rock, and if you like it, you might try the rubber Guy Hawkins Pieces, those are bigger in there exterior dimensions than the metal ones

I have a 7 Guy Hawkins that I used for years. Talking wit the Late John Van Wie, he described it (and I agree) as a compromise between a Link and Dukoff.

The Guy Hawkins pieces are generating interest. I had a client in Florida order an 8. I sent him two to compare and he bought both. I think of them as more of a straight ahead piece (this guy plays cruise ships) For more cut, try a LeBayle Studio hard rubber. As previously stated, hard rubber pieces are larger. The studio has a baffle that gives a lot of power for blues and rock playing. The SR Tech "Europa" may do it for you, too.
