I have limited experience with Phil Tone mouthpieces, but the four I’ve owned all seemed to like harder reeds than other mouthpieces I have with comparable tip openings, possibly he puts somewhat longer facings on his mouthpieces than some other makers. Most recently I acquired one of his Jazzmaster pieces in a trade, and it really doesn’t like the same reeds as my Tenney Jazzmaster in the same tip opening. Similarly the Eclipse, Mosaic and Tribute I had seemed to like harder reeds than the original Link and Dukoff pieces they were “modeled” after. Has anyone else found this to be true?
