Great powerhouse mouthpiece that combines classic Phil Woods with a modern power and punch.
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.
Powerhouse player model: Showboat mouthpiece. Great powerhouse mouthpiece that combines classic Phil Woods with a modern power and punch. More cut, power, brights, and brilliance, to the sound than the Alto Madness and Daddy-O models. It takes it to the next level, for the guys that want that. “The Showboat” mouthpiece: Think 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s Phil Woods here with more brights and pop available. Great for jazz and well-suited for contemporary playing!
Such a fantastic lead alto mouthpiece sound! More punch and highs available in the Showboat model than in the Daddy-O model. The Showboat has a longer facing curve than the Daddy-O model so it’s freer blowing for the player who wants that brilliance up high when pushed. This has a medium height+, med-long baffle and straight side walls. It’s a shorter and higher baffle compared to the Daddy-O model. Its got all the volume anyone would ever need, but can also be played to a whisper. The sound is thick and full throughout.
Think Phil Woods here with more brights and punch!
Much more aggressive and the modern guys who play funk, blues, pop, and smooth jazz love this piece. Yes, you can get a Sanborn vibe with it but with a little more warmth and body!
