Avel Sound Concept's hand finished Alto Sax Mistral Mouthpiece
The Mistral is a strong wind that blows from Southern France into the Mediterranean.
This hard rubber piece has a medium round chamber and a small rollover baffle. It is inspired by two of my favorite pieces, the Brilhart Tonalin and the Meyer Bros. It has a medium bright sound with rich lows, clear mediums and powerful, but not harsh, highs. This is a very versatile piece that allows you to easily shape your sound the way you like it.
Avel Sound Concept maker, Max Even: The word “Avel” means “Wind” in my local dialect from Brittany, France. For me, it all started with the famous quote by Paul Desmond “I think I had it in the back of my mind that I wanted to sound like a dry martini“. I got obsessed with it and I started the search for my sound.
