The 10MFAN original modern design answer for all you vintage Meyer mouthpiece lovers to enjoy without it being a copy
10M Fan saxophone mouthpieces are the brainchild of vintage mouthpiece aficionado, Mark Sepincuk. Every mouthpiecce facing is finished by Brian Powell or Erik Greiffenhagen. Here is what Mark has to say about these beautifully crafted pieces.
The 10MFAN original modern design answer for all you vintage Meyer mouthpiece lovers to enjoy without it being a copy: “ALTO MADNESS”. This piece is fantastic, and I wanted to bring back some “old school” here with some REAL character built into it! Its got a nice deep chamber with slightly scooped sidewalls and a rollover baffle. All of you vintage Meyer and Link lovers will really dig this. Its got a full-bodied sound with lots of CHARACTER and the right resistance to push against, for a piece like this.
Its all about the beauty of the sound. This has got a classic sweet alto sound and can be played pretty, or you can push it too and it can get punch!
Listen to the videos on my website and you will hear this. I can lay back on it for some Art Pepper, Paul Desmond, Sonny Stitt, Lou Donaldson, Johnny Hodges, etc… BUT—- you can push it for a more modern direction like David Binney, Dick oats, etc….. Dave Pollack is CRAZY about his Alto Madness mouthpiece. Check out his sound in all the videos I have up on my website.
DESIGN: Roll over baffle, round and deep medium-large chamber, scooped sidewalls.
