Sound is not the easiest thing to describe, my priorities for saxophone sound in order of importance are as follows:
- BEAUTIFUL :: The saxophone is one of the most beautiful instruments there is, the sound should be big and rich and beautiful.
- DYNAMIC RANGE :: It should be easy to play up and down the horn, soft to loud.
- EDGE :: Everyone has different tastes and perceptions, but some edge on top of the sound is desirable. Each mouthpiece is extensively play tested and the facing curve adjusted until it meets exacting musical standards!
Each mouthpiece must pass the following tests!
- The mouthpiece must respond with the slightest amount of air and support from the embouchure.
- It must play evenly from top to bottom, meaning, adjacent notes must center in the same way.
- At medium volumes it must have a round and pleasing sound.
- Most importantly for a Jazz mouthpiece, at more extreme volume levels the sound has to hold together and develop some real power!

Hi Ron -
Got home last night from the Florida tour I was on. The piece came to the house on Saturday while i was out.
I played it for six hours today!! I am amazed at the comfort level and the incredible low end. WOW!!! The altissimo flies out. It allows so much flexibility and focus on the music and improv creativity, vs. technical having to think about making a mouthpiece respond. WOW!!!
Just wanted to let you know that I got the tenor piece safe and sound and it is
awesome. Absolutely everything you said it would be and more.
Thanks so much,
Hi Ron, Received the Bari mouthpiece today..WOW! Smoking does not capture the right feeling...INCREDIBLE more accurately describes my reaction.Great mouthpiece all the way around! Cuts like a chainsaw.. I cannot out blow it with full lungs of air.. Wonderful!
Thank you for your time to craft such a great MP!!!
