  • How to Choose a Saxophone Mouthpiece

    Choosing your Mouthpiece It sometimes takes me about 2 weeks to really know if a mouthpiece is right or not and so it is not always a good idea to make that decision in a shop, however most retailers let you try out a mouthpiece at home, as long as you use a mouthpiece patch. This is usually a sale on ... Read more…
  • Mouthpiece Charts

    Saxophone Facing Comparisons There are quite a few mouthpiece comparison charts out there, but most are not very user-friendly so I created this one based on some of the most popular tenor mouthpieces used by saxophone players today. One important thing to be aware of is that the response you get from any two saxophone mouthpieces with the same tip opening ... Read more…
  • Alto Mouthpiece Comparisons

    Scroll for more tracks I have gathered together some frequently recommended (and some not so frequently) alto saxophone mouthpieces. Most mouthpiece comparisons you hear are not always the exact same piece of music, so here I have attempted to play the same phrases on each which should help you decide on the basic sound differences. Most of these are readily available ... Read more…
  • Mouthpiece Material

    Mouthpiece Material: Does it make a Difference to the Sound? Yes and No (but mostly no) Yes | No | Listening Test As we know from reading about whether the material of the saxophone itself can make a difference to the sound, it is the air column vibrating not the walls of the instrument (unlike resonant instruments such as guitars, pianos and drums). ...

  • PPT Soprano

    As with the tenor and baritone mouthpieces, my reason for developing the PPT soprano saxophone mouthpiece is not commercial, I just wanted to get the best soprano mouthpiece for my own needs. I had been using a vintage Selmer Soloist which I really enjoyed, but it did not quite have the rich darkness that I love so much about a ... Read more…
  • PPT Alto

    Due to overwhelming demand we have now introduced the PPT alto mouthpiece in Onyxite. This is not just a scaled down version of the tenor, the concept is slightly different. My inspiration for these includes the Brilhart Tonalin and Meyer Bros. New York so they do not have as high a baffle as the tenor pieces. In keeping with the PPT ... Read more…
  • PPT Tenor

    My concept behind the sound is a mouthpiece that can deliver not only that very fat warm almost vintage sound, but also a more modern sound with nice sparkly edge, sometimes both at once. I was after a really versatile mouthpiece that could deliver lush subtone for vintage jazz as well as screaming harmonics for rock and R & B. ... Read more…
  • PPT Baritone

    As with the tenor mouthpiece, I was looking for something that doesn’t yet exist – a versatile mouthpiece for baritone sax that is capable of extreme dynamics from a gentle whisper to a gutsy roar. Up until now I used several baritone mouthpieces for different styles of playing: a Lawton, Berg Larsen, RPC and (my favourite) a vintage Otto Link ... Read more…
