Going to order now. I had some of these as a sample ages ago and they lasted better than anything else. I am currently using Gorilla tape which is presumably toxic ..

Patches arrived today and they look great. Shipping was fast (got here faster than it takes to send something to the next state...go figure). Thanks, Mike.

Well, over three years (!) after Mike sent me two patches to test, I finally stuck one on my mouthpiece tonight (kept mislaying them, then never got round to testing) after playing. So still not tried Mike's but at least I stuck one on, after removing my usual type and cleaning the gunk off the mouthpiece!

Got my FAM mouthpiece patches today. They are exactly what I wanted and needed. A mouthpiece patch that is super thin, stays in place and provides grippy surface for top teeth.

Thanks Mike for a wonderful product.

I heard mouthpiece patches help people switching from a double lip embouchure to a single lip with teeth on mouthpiece. It cushions the teeth as if the top lip would.

Hi Mike,
I've been using your patches since you first started selling them and would recommend them to any Sax player. As they do my collection of mouthpieces is growing so I need to order some more, they are a great product,
Thanks.

Just PayPal'd you Mike - hoping your patches can withstand my rodent teeth because not much else can! If this fails, I'll be rounding them off with heavy-duty sandpaper.

eeeeeeeeehhhhh........

That is probably true, but Mike's patches are thin. To do what you want, get two patches. A thick soft patch (black ones) and put one of Mike's on top for your teeth.

Mike, are they the same size for all sax types? I need 5 alto and five tenor.
Thanks, David
Yes, the same size. We all have approximately the same size mouths after all :)

I can answer that. There is one size. They work just fine on both tenor and alto.
Thanks Houndawg :)

Yes, absolutely true, so I hear! Thanks soybean.

Hi Mike,

Hope patches are still available? They're the best I've ever come across, and I've run out! Have you got them into any music stores local to Bristol yet?

Thanks,

David
