Gene Ammons vibe!!! Spread, fat, warm, with punch when pushed.
10M Fan saxophone mouthpieces are the brainchild of vintage mouthpiece aficionado, Mark Sepincuk. Every mouthpiece facing is finished by Brian Powell or Erik Greiffenhagen. Here is what Mark has to say about these beautifully crafted pieces.
“ROBUSTO”: Gene Ammons vibe!!! Spread, fat, warm, with punch when pushed. I designed the Robusto to be my personal tenor mouthpiece—-and it is. For me, this offers the perfect blend of lows, mids, + highs, and has a rich color palette and wide dynamic range. The sound has a really great classic warmth with beautiful punch available when you want it. More power, punch, and brightness available than the category one Celebration and Classic mouthpieces. This has a timeless “hard bop ny tenor sound” and a modern Jazz sound is available from it at the same time, with a nice classic sizzle on top when you want it. Plenty of room to let loose with this piece. It offers great body and depth. it’s clean and powerful with a huge, full body of sound.
Like all my mouthpieces, the sound “opens up” beautifully as you push it.
This piece is designed to release the sound up in the palm keys. The Celebration will stay more warm up there and the Robusto will let loose for the guys that need more punch and brights up there.
DESIGN: This has a medium height, medium length baffle, flat sidewalls, a nice med-large chamber, and the floor drops after the baffle. The altissimo sing with a fullness on this piece. They do not get thin or edgy for me. This piece is a phenomenal all-around straight ahead jazz hard rubber mpc. My hard rubber Robusto absolutely smokes the vintage slants, resos, and early babbitt links, for me. Much more depth, body, and core!
