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.
