Description

MERLOT HARD RUBBER: WARM, OPEN, RICH, FULL-BODIED PIECE WITH PURITY, POWER, CLARITY, AND DEPTH

VERY PERSONAL AND CLASSIC SOUNDING. INCREDIBLE BLUE NOTE ERA SOUND OF THE 50’S AND 60’S AND A VERY MODERN SOUND IS AVAILABLE FROM IT AT THE SAME TIME FOR THE PLAYERS WHO CAN BLOW BRIGHTER!
FOR MODERN GUYS THAT HAVE THE MERLOT VIBE: THINK BERGONZI, FRAHM, POTTER, MINTZER, SEAMUS BLAKE, MARK TURNER, ETC….. YOU CAN ALSO GET A STEVE GROSSMAN OR BOB BERG VIBE FROM IT TOO, IF YOU HAVE THOSE GUYS IN YOUR HEAD. I WANTED A WARM, FULL SOUNDING PIECE THAT WASN’T TOO DARK OR STUFFY AT ALL. THIS HAS A BEAUTIFUL CORE SOUND AND IS INCREDIBLY FLEXIBLE WITH ALL THE SOUND SPECTRUM IT CAN OFFER! ITS A WARM, OPEN MOUTHPIECE FOR ME. IT DOES NOT HAVE THE TUBBINESS OR STUFFINESS OFTEN ASSOCIATED WITH HARD RUBBER VINTAGE MOUTHPIECES! I MADE THIS TO SOUND WARM YET WITH PLENTY OF WARM POWER WHEN YOU PUSH IT. IT HAS THE LOWEST BAFFLE OF MY 3 MOUTHPIECES AND THE ALTISSIMO SING WITH A WARMTH AND FULLNESS ON THIS PIECE. THEY DO NOT GET THIN OR EDGY.
LISTEN TO THE AUDIOS OF JOEL FRAHM, THEN TOM MITCHELL, THEN JEFF RUPERT, AND THEN JEFF MORRISON IN MY MERLOT AUDIO SECTION. THIS WILL SHOW YOU THE INCREDIBLE SOUND SPECTRUM IT OFFERS! FAR MORE FOR ME THAN ALL THE WARMER CATEGORY VINTAGE MOUTHPIECES. I WANTED TO MAKE A WARM PLAYING TENOR MOUTHPIECE THAT DIDN’T SOUND JUST LIKE A 60’s SLANT, BUT DOES EVERYTHING THEY CAN DO, AND MUCH MORE. MY PIECES DON’T PUT YOU IN A “SOUND CORNER” AND MAKE YOU SOUND ONE-WAY. MINE OFFER WAY MORE FLEXIBILITY, DEPTH, AND CLARITY TO THE SOUND—–AND WITH MEANING! JOEL FRAHM IS AS PICKY AS THEY COME FOR ACHIEVING THE PERFECT SOUND FOR HIMSELF, AND HE HAS GIGGED ON AND RECORDED WITH MY MERLOT AND ROBUSTO HARD RUBBER MODELS FOR OVER A YEAR AND A HALF NOW. MY MERLOT SIMPLY OFFERS HIM MORE THAN HIS SLANT SIG CAN POSSIBLY OFFER. THE SOUND CAN BE VERY CLEAN OR FLUFFY DEPENDING ON HOW YOU WANT TO PLAY IT. THE HIGH END RELEASES THE SOUND AND DOESN’T MAKE YOU SOUND AIRY OR TUBBY ON THE PALM KEYS. YOU CAN MAKE IT SOUND LIKE THAT, BUT IT WON’T DICTATE THAT ON ITS OWN. THIS PIECE DOES NOT MAKE YOU PLAY “ONE WAY” OR PUT YOU IN A SOUND CORNER LIKE THE VINTAGE MOUTHPIECES. YOU CAN EASILY GO FROM STAN GETZ TO JOEL FRAHM TO BOB BERG WITH THIS PIECE. LIKE A FINE WINE, YOU WILL DISCOVER THAT THIS PIECE WILL CONTINUE TO GET BETTER AND BETTER FOR YOU WITH TIME!
FINALLY, MOUTHPIECES THAT CAN GET BOTH THE VINTAGE VIBE AND MODERN VIBE!
