"I thought it would make sense to compare this to the Mindi Abair as potentially this box is already ‘ticked’ in terms of Theo having a mouthpiece in the brightest alto line. However, I can hear the differences, and feel the differences in terms of response and brightness. This one for me has a tad more edge on the top and the overall timbre seems to have just a degree of extra brightness. Whereas the Mindi seems to naturally (and to my surprise) carry a fair bit of weight and depth in the lower reaches, this one just kicks out straight away, in all registers! If you’re simply looking for the maximum power, projection and brightness, perhaps on the basis of coming through all the other instruments around you, this mouthpiece is the one!" - Jim Cheek (Sax.co.uk)
