What they say

These mouthpieces features a smaller than normal bore and a flat baffle, very much like a traditional mouthpiece from the saxophone's creation. This gives a tone that is very infrequently too harsh or shrill but rather gives a pleasant and rich tone. The medium sized chamber gives a full and rounded tone but also offers a core of sound which gives the saxophone its expressivity.
