I played my soprano on and off all weekend….couldn’t get enough of it. The mouthpiece is great! I can’t think of anything I would want changed, including the beak. Intonation throughout the range is really good, based on my ear … Read More
The mouthpiece arrived just over a week ago and it’s magnificent! My wife is very happy with it and she sounds great. So far she’s using Hemke #2 reeds because that’s what she could get locally but she’s ordered some … Read More
Joe, dear brother of the brother- and sisterhood of the straight horn. How do I find the words to say thank you to you for the great work you have done and the change in my life this virtually does … Read More
I got the mouthpiece yesterday, and had a chance to give it a good run this afternoon. It is amazing, thanks! The tone is fat and complex, lots of volume, very easy blowing. I had a great time with a … Read More
Dear Joe, the mouthpiece arrived last Friday afternoon. I’ve been playing it nonstop and It’s fantastic. You met all my requests in terms of the sound I was looking for. It was a pleasure to deal with you Joe.
Your mouth piece came in the mail about an hour ago and everybody is right, you are the real thing when it comes to soprano mouthpieces. The intonation is way happening, it has such great response etcetera etcetera. I have a … Read More
WOW, The fullness & beauty is far better than what you described on the Alma! The emotional value of the sound is thru the roof! The projection on the upper register normally takes off, forcing me to hold back. The Alma … Read More
So I’ve spent some time on the piece now, found a good reed and so on, and man it’s just so good. Big, round, warm, woody, yet still retains great forward motion and bite. It’s relateable, yet unique! Low Bb … Read More
Wow Joe! I am impressed! I love this mouthpiece. It has eliminated several problems that I didn’t seem able to get past. Now I can concentrate on my sound and not have to worry about whether or not the notes … Read More
I received the Missing Link last night. I played it a bit with Rico Jazz Select 3M like you suggested, and it played very nicely from the bottom to the top with much thicker sound than I could ever play. … Read More
The mouthpiece has arrived a few days ago. It seems to be exactly what I needed. And such a huge potential! Stretches the limits of the possible, prompts experiment, stimulates the ear, etc, etc. Bravo maestro!
I received the mouthpiece yesterday and had a chance to play it last night. Overall, I’m floored. It matches my Keilwerth beautifully. I could have searched for years without finding its like. Even my wife had to stop in the … Read More
Damn ….this piece plays GREAT!!! Joe I think you’ve made a piece that has combined the best of two worlds.Very linkish in sound quality and yet it also has the Selmer thing happening.Man, I wish you made tenor pieces!
Joe Giardullo, you’re not a man of your word. You promised me the Open Sky 2 was a wonderful mouthpiece and it’s not true. It’s the MOST AMAZING, RESPONSIVE, SWEET and POWERFUL, FLEXIBLE, COMFORTABLE and EASY soprano mouthpiece I ever played.
I just wanted to let you know that I love the mouthpiece! Absolutely what I was looking for. Again, thank you so much for the great piece.
Bravo and fantastic!!! Before I use the Missing Link with the reed, I used it with a used Rico Plasticover 3. It’s already so great. Then after I changed to Marca, it’s even better. . Normally, it’d be quite difficult … Read More
The piece arrived in this afternoon’s mail. It is everything I was hoping for – and more. I haven’t had a LOT of time yet with it, but I picked one reed I’d been using lately, slapped it on the ’26 Martin … Read More
