Here is my review of a custom hard rubber tenor saxophone mouthpiece that Eric Falcon made. A friend of mine sent me this to try with 2 metal links as well. This is an example of a great hard rubber mouthpiece. I actually have played this mouthpiece for about a week now and love it a lot. (It hasn’t left me horn) It is the type of mouthpiece that sounds great on a laid back jazz gig but also has enough kick to it that you can push it into overdrive and get some nice volume on a funk or rock gig.
I emailed Eric and asked if I could order one myself. He just sent me two to try which I look forward to reviewing. The new mouthpieces are under the Warburton name. I will do a review and clip of those very soon. The recording of this mouthpiece is a great example if you want to hear the difference between HR and metal. This clip has a thicker fatter sound to it than many of my metal mouthpiece clips. That’s a sound that I love! Nice, thick and textured. When I go up high it sound nice and round just like I like my high notes to sound.
I don’t go into overdrive on this clip but I have a lot in the past week and it sounds great in that kind of setting also. This is a beautiful sounding mouthpiece. Great Job Eric…………….
