Thank you so very much Sir! You have positively influenced my actual real life to a degree that you cannot possibly imagine. I am so happy that I spent the time to research the possibilities of getting a custom Soprano … Read More
This is the classic Selmer piece, taken in partial trade. I have rebalanced it completely and it now sings.
The adjustments you made are perfect . I am now able to pop out all the top end notes without shutting down. It’s great. Thanks for knowing what questions to ask and what adjustments to make. I am very pleased with … Read More
Martin large chamber soprano mouthpieces are the choice of a large majority of Rascher-style classical players. And there’s a reason for that. These are elegant, warm, robust mouthpieces when they are correctly set up. This one, with a tip opening … Read More
Wonderful! Palm keys and everywhere else on the sax is in tune, and I can articulate the palm keys now. I even managed an altissimo G. Love the nice warm open tone I’m when I want that voicing, and I … Read More
Wow!!! I got the mouthpiece first thing this morning – what a revelation!! It’s fantastic – everything you said it would be, and probably more. Many thanks, Joe.
Really rare to find an original vintage Dukoff soprano ligature, and this one is in perfect, as new condition. This is the ligature made famous by Steve Lacy. It is solid and one of the great, ultra-responsive ligatures ever.. I’m … Read More
WOW! Low notes sound and high notes in tune. Low C, Middle C, and High C spot right on according to my tuner! Nice, warm sound. With its Missing Link mouthpiece, my Yamaha is like a whole new horn. Also, … Read More

Got the piece in the mail yesterday. Played on it for 20 minutes then decided to use it on the gig last night . My first reaction was ‘wow’. I seem to find myself taking in less of the mouthpiece … Read More

Wonderful piece, deep, full, but still resonate. Love the Marcas. Got to spend a good 3—4 hours on it yesterday, and I began to lock into it. Nice!!
I’m following up to let you know that I have received the mouthpiece, and am loving it so far! It really feels like I’m playing on a whole new horn. I wanted to thank you for being so accommodating.
I played your mouthpiece quite a bit today and have to admit: it’s really great. I can feel now what you say about one voice through the whole range, easyness of playing and intonation. Everything is great to me now. … Read More
I received today the Open Sky 2. First of all thank you for the super fast delivery across the ocean! So I had my first trial with it on my Yamaha 675 (straight neck, Marca Superieure 2 &1/2 reeds and … Read More
