The most revolutionary and newest proprietary saxophone mouthpiece chamber design in the marketplace

Mark has been passionately working on this concept design for a very long time, and it is with the availability of 3-D printing technology, was able to make this dream come true.10M Fan hard rubber mouthpieces are the finest available in the marketplace, OCTAGON SERIES offers different, original mouthpiece designs for less money as an option for players who can’t afford the hard rubber versions.


This mouthpiece was designed for a killer straight ahead classic tenor sound, with lots of warmth, really good power, nice resistance to push against, and FOCUS. But, it can also be used for pop music which is blowing everyone’s minds right now, because the baffle is low and people don’t understand how I could make a piece that could do this with this design. That’s what making innovative original designs is all about!!! Because of that focus, the intonation is locked in. If you want less resistance, just go to a softer reed. Think Bob Berg, Pharoah Sanders, Coltrane, focus! It’s incredibly heartwarming to be able to put out this piece because it is so different from all my 10MFAN hard rubber mouthpieces. This piece will have more focus like a vintage metal Link…. and for me, more power and body available.

There are lots of fat sounding tenor pieces out there, and hard rubber 10MFAN mouthpieces certainly fit in that category, but  many players over the years are looking for something that has much more focus, where the sound stays right in front of the player,  and doesn’t get spread…..but still with a really big sound available when you want it!

The Cabernet has resonance, fullness, focus, and  power. It won’t be as wide sounding as a Slant or a Reso Chamber, because that’s NOT what I wanted here. I wanted more focus with this piece, but also really good power. This is different from anything I’ve put out, and I’m very excited about it. This piece has a low rollover baffle that allows for so much beauty in the sound, but still with plenty of presence and  sparkle to carry that beautiful, rich classic tenor sound.

The vintage Link players who wish their sound had more focus to it rather than spread, will LOVE this piece. This mouthpiece is going to please players who are using a whole TON of different straight ahead tenor mouthpieces. This piece just KILLS! Just listen to the videos that continue to come in, that I am putting up on my website. You can hear for yourself how the peace sounds.


First off, my pieces are all original designs that offer my proprietary octagon chamber with chamber panels. 2nd, these pieces have REAL weight to them! They actually weigh MORE than my German bar stock hard rubber mouthpieces! They are made with 100% infill so they are stable and solid. That was super important to me. 3rd, they are hand finished by two of the best and most respected refacers out there, Mr. Brian Powell and Mr. Erik Greiffenhagen. That was super important to me, because the mouthpieces play properly that way….plain and simple! The tables are flat, and the rails are symmetrical and measure properly. The baffles are hand worked so that the pieces play their best. We do not remove all the 3-D printed lines on the inside floor of the mouthpiece because there is no need to remove more material when the pieces play perfect, after they are hand finished. To continue to grind the floor makes no sense, so we don’t do that. Next, what is the price. You cannot buy original design mouthpieces with this octagon chamber and chamber panels that are hand finished by Brian and Erik, anywhere. If you know anything about mouthpiece design, most of the magic happens at the chamber!!!

These are mouthpieces using state of the art 3-D technology and design. These are not done on cheap home machines. Again, we use 100% infill with the mouthpieces for ultimate stability…NO shortcuts! These mouthpieces have real weight, a truly unique octagon chamber with “chamber panels” all around on the inside of the chamber, and are 100% infill, so they are stable. This proprietary design concept has never been done in the mouthpiece world, and it continues to carry on with my 10MFAN design commitment to innovation over imitation.


An absolutely killer lead alto mouthpiece for the modern player! The vintage Meyer alto guys will go crazy for this piece, because it is a great lead alto mouthpiece with a low baffle that has that classic alto sound… but with extra punch, some brights available, and great altissimo. It is focussed and not intended to be a fatter, more spread sounding alto piece. The sound of this piece will go straight in front of you right back to the back of the room!

For those of you on Meyer-style pieces, who want a little more focus and power, you will love how this piece plays. It’s got a ton of depth and colour, a solid core, and it stays incredibly stable even as you push it to the extremes. A rock-solid core and very balanced sound. It’s so much fun to play!

The vintage Meyer and Brilhart players will LOVE this, but it’s really going to please players who are using a TON of different alto mouthpieces.This “FIREBALL” mouthpiece has a low baffle. It just plays great for classic jazz, or modern music!



OCTAGON SERIES mouthpieces are all rollover baffle designs for everyone to enjoy. A lot of players don’t like step baffles. The designs of these mouthpieces are so unique on the outside and inside just wait till you feel how the sidewalls and floor go into the chamber with the “chamber panels”. It’s never been done before in the mouthpiece world, and these two models are just INCREDIBLE. These models were designed for something very specific and definitely worth a try!


The design of the outside and inside of the mouthpieces are completely original. They have a very modern look to them.


Hand finishing is VERY VERY VERY important for quality control! 3-D printed pieces often do not have flat tables or proper facing curves without being hand finished. The great Brian Powell and Erik Greiffenhagen do all of the hand finishing on the current HR 10MFAN mouthpieces, and that will continue with the Octagon Series. The tables will be flat and the facing curves will measure properly. On 3-D printed mouthpieces, you will see the lines of filament because that’s how they are built. These pieces aren’t polished or painted. They are matte black, and the rails and tables and baffles are perfect. PLEASE ALWAYS USE A TOOTH PATCH - it will maintain integrity of the tip for long term use. 


The problem with many 3-D printed mouthpieces, is they just don’t have the resonance that players are looking for, and many sound so thin and one-dimensional. Mark tried a ton of different material options, baffles, chambers, floor heights, and a bunch of other variables to make sure the Octagon Series had that depth and resonance we seek as players. The sound is rich, resonant, and has tons of depth and colour. There will be a proper balance of low’s, mid’s, and high’s in each model, according to the desired performance of each model.
