I thought I would put up a comparison clip of my 3 favorite tenor mouthpieces so we could hear the differences in their sounds. The three mouthpieces are a Theo Wanne Kali, a Jon Van Wie STM Link and a LAW Buzzer. All three mouthpieces are around a .110 tip opening. They were all done on the same recording with the same reed. I edited the recording to take out the time I took to change the reeds and make sure I was in tune. This is a cool idea.
LAW Buzzer, JVW Link, Kali Comparison
I wish I had thought of it sooner. My go to tenor mouthpieces for any R&B or pop gigs has been the LAW or Jon Van Wie STM Link. The Link has always had that penetrating focused sound that I find cuts right through on almost every gig. The new Theo Wanne Kali plays great. I wish I could take it on a gig to really test it but here in my studio it sounds terrific. It’s cool because although it is bright it sounds fatter and smoother than the JVW or Law. Let me know what you think by making some comments if you are interested. The picture order from left to right is Kali, JVW Link and LAW.
