Marmaduke Jazz Alto Mouthpiece
The entire Marmaduke range are extremely well made & designed pieces. The Jazz Alto is one of the closest sounding mouthpieces I have found to the classic vintage NY Meyer. I felt that though it was not to be as warm as a Meyer it did offer a slightly brighter edge & rather greater flexibility. When pushed this piece really has a lot of punch; ideal for most gigging alto sax players on the modern scene. For me it proved a perfect balance of free blowing with a touch of slight resistance.
Its intonation was extremely good from top to bottom and overtones/altissimo proved very easy to achieve. A mouthpiece I feel is very suited to people after the Cannonball Adderley or Phil Woods sound.
