The Crescent model was designed with the “Coltrane” sound in mind. The sound of this mouthpiece is reminiscent of the John Coltrane album “Crescent” circa 1963. It features a slightly smaller tip opening than other models. It had a large bore and a slight baffle. Tip opening 106”.


Supplied with a Rovner style cap and ligature


Staff Review


"Dave Guardala Crescent. Reminiscent of the John Coltrane sound, this model was inspired by the album "Crescent," circa 1963. I did some careful measuring and found the Crescent equated to an Otto Link 8 but despite this relatively large tip opening it feels remarkably free-blowing. Tonally, it has a basic warmth, breathiness and 'body' to it, whilst giving out a huge amount of power and brightness on top. It is this wonderful mixture that made me immediately fall in love with it. I really do think this is one of the best mouthpieces I have ever tried – so I bought one for myself! Michael Brecker used a Guardala Studio mouthpiece back in the early 80s but unfortunately it is no longer available. Despair not! Although the Crescent looks slightly different internally, to the Studio, I found that I got that same basic sound that Brecker achieved (of course you need to have his sound well established in your head!); vibrant, rich and with a bit of edge on the surface."
