10mfan *DELETED* - MERLOT Metal Silver Plate Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece

"MERLOT": WARM, OPEN, FULL-BODIED PIECE WITH PURITY, LOTS OF POWER, CLARITY, AND DEPTH

RICH, FULL BODIED, WARM AND ROUND WITH LOTS OF CLARITY, DEPTH, AND POWER. VERY PERSONAL 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.

I WANTED A WARM, FULL SOUNDING PIECE THAT WASN'T DARK OR STUFFY. WITH ALEXANDER NY OR VANDOREN BLUE BOX REEDS, IT WILL PLAY DARKER 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 TOO BRIGHT FOR ME. IT DOES NOT HAVE THE TUBBINESS OR STUFFINESS ASSOCIATED WITH HARD RUBBER VINTAGE MOUTHPIECES!

I MADE THIS TO SOUND WARM YET WITH PLENTY OF POWER WHEN YOU PUSH IT--NOT STUFFY AT ALL. IT HAS THE LOWEST BAFFLE OF MY 3 MOUTHPIECES, AND A WIDE,FULL SOUND WITH PLENTY OF POWER AVAILABLE WHEN YOU WANT TO LET LOOSE ON IT. LISTEN TO 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, DOES MUCH MORE THAN THEY CAN DO-AND DOESN'T PUT YOU IN A "SOUND CORNER" AND MAKE YOU SOUND ONE-WAY. MINE OFFERS WAY MORE FLEXIBILITY, DEPTH, CLARITY, AND WIDTH TO THE SOUND--AND IT DOES IT WITH MEANING!

JOEL FRAHM IS AS PICKY AS THEY COME FOR ACHIEVING THE PERFECT SOUND FOR HIMSELF, AND HE HAS BEEN ON MY MERLOT MODEL FOR ONE YEAR NOW. HE PUT THE SLANT LINK IN THE DRAWER, AND HASN'T LOOKED BACK. MY MERLOT SIMPLY OFFERS HIM MORE OF EVERYTHING, AND HE IS THRILLED ABOUT THIS. 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-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!
