"Ebonite mouthpieces for jazz in the tradition of the famous American alto saxophone mouthpieces of the fifties. Available in two different chambers, S (small) and M (medium). The small chamber is designed for strong projection, articulation and timbre; a fine choice for a lead player. The medium chamber is designed for flexibility, accuracy in pitch and articulation; the alternate choice in sound."
"Small Bore: S series mouthpieces have more timbre than the M series, and they offer a strong predominance of medium harmonics as well as great accuracy in pitch and articulation. They have a strong and bright sound with excellent density."
"Medium Bore: A rich, accurate and very centred timbre provides the M series with great warmth and a lot of expressiveness. These mouthpieces offer easy control and excellent comfort."
"The A5 is very comfortable, great blowing and ease of articulation."
"The A6 is the ideal balance between richness of sound and ease of production."
"The A7 is the the perfect balance between power and dynamics."
"The A8 and A9 have exceptional ease of emission for a mouthpiece of this opening. Very powerful and homogenous throughout the entire compass of registers. Perfectly adapted for soloists and acoustic jazz."
