Manufacturers Description

“Robusto”: for me, this is greatest all-around hard rubber jazz
mouthpiece I've ever played

very personal and classic sounding. incredible blue note era sound of
the 50′s and 60′s and a very modern sound is available from it at the
same time!

for modern guys that have the Merlot vibe: think Bergonzi, Frahm,
potter, Mintzer, and Seamus Blake. you can also get a Steve Grossman or
bob berg vibe from it too, if you have those guys in your head. I wanted
a warm, full sounding piece that wasn’t dark or stuffy at all. with
alexander ny or vandoren blue box reeds, it will play its darkest but
never stuffy or dull. this has a beautiful core sound and is incredibly
flexible with all the sound spectrum it can offer! it can open up and
let loose without getting bright for me. it does not have the tubbiness
or stuffiness often associated with hard rubber vintage mouthpieces! i
made this to sound warm yet with plenty of power when you push it. it
has the lowest baffle of my 3 mouthpieces.

listen to the audios of Joel Frahm, then Tom Mitchell, then Jeff Rupert,
and then Chris Potter in my Merlot audio section. this will show you the
incredible sound spectrum it offers! far more for me than all the warmer
category hard rubber vintage mouthpieces. i wanted to make a warm
playing tenor mouthpiece that didn't sound just like a 60′s slant, but
does everything they can do, and much more. my piece don’t put you in a
“sound corner” and make you sound one-way. mine offer way more
flexibility, depth, and clarity to the sound—–and with meaning! Joel
Frahm is as picky as they come for achieving the perfect sound for
himself, and he has gigged on and recorded with my Merlot and Robusto
hard rubber models for a year now. my Merlot simply offers him more than
his slant sig can possibly offer. the sound can be very clean or fluffy
depending on how you play it. the high end releases the sound and
doesn't make you sound airy or tubby on the palm keys. this piece does
not make you play “one way” like the vintage mouthpieces. you can easily
go from Stan Getz-Joel Frahm-bob berg with this piece. like a fine wine,
you will discover that this piece will continue to get better and better
for you with time!

finally, mouthpieces that can get both the vintage vibe and modern vibe.
