Got the mouthpiece, and so far it is fabulous! Broader sound than the C*, great response, excellent altissimo, even sound throughout – easy to control and plenty to lean on when I want to. Thank you!

After playing the mouthpiece for a couple of days I found that it has beautiful dark color to the tone, round and clean with a bit of resistance. High notes are not a problem with this mouthpiece! Also, I’m really … Read More
The Bari came today… I blew it for about 30min or so and it feels great. Still has the thing of my other one, but like you said the top register is not so choked, the bottom speaks well, – … Read More
I look forward to spending time with this piece. It’s a very nice contrast to the Riffault. I think it’s got what I want for the electric setting that I often play in, while not sacrificing good tone quality. I … Read More
Your Missing Link mouthpiece is a thing of beauty. The tone is warm and dark. The ML makes my soprano sing. Thanks for the extra attention and for opening up the ML a bit.

Wednesday was an organ trio gig and I ended playing the soprano only sporadically. But last night I took only the soprano and had a blast! After playing one mouthpiece for almost fifteen years the Metropolitain required a few small … Read More
