Saxscape Hudson Model .113

Saxscape Hudson Model Refaced by Brian Powell to .113
I received this piece from a friend who wanted me to try it out. It was made by Ken Barry at Saxscape mouthpieces.  The person who owned it before me had Brian Powell reface it (I’m not sure why) It has berg like baffle in it that is medium high in my mind. When I first played it i used size 2 1/2 reeds and it was a bit harsh sounding when i blew hard. I moved to size  3 Java’s and that did the trick for me. It took some of that brightness away and gave the tone a nice thick core to it. I enjoyed playing this one although I’m curious as to how it played originally.  I wish i could play this piece for longer to see what it really can do. This was a joy to play on!  Ken Barry makes some great pieces. Check him out at
