Warm, pure, focused, even sound with very good power Focussed, warm, rich, full sound with a warmer power and a beautiful deep core top to bottom. Very flexible!
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.
“THE CLASSIC”: Warm, pure, focused, even sound with very good power Focussed, warm, rich, full sound with a warmer power and a beautiful deep core top to bottom. Very flexible! It can get a classic Blue Note type of vibe. Getz, Mobley, early Sonny, etc., but also Chris Potter, Joel Frahm, Seamus, etc. The sound is more focussed than the Robusto model. The sound is even and pure top to bottom and projects well out to the audience. Always retains a rich, focussed sound no matter what volume level, full tone or subtone.
This is an incredible straightahead jazz mouthpiece. Fantastic altissimo for a lower baffle mouthpiece and the intonation is amazingly locked in.
The Classic model can get more punchy for me than the Celebration Model, as the chamber is a little smaller than the Celebration.
DESIGN: This piece has a short baffle, extremely scooped out sidewalls, a higher floor than the Robusto, and a wider med-large chamber.
