I received this piece a few days ago from the guys at Mouthpiece Cafe(Brian and Eric). Everyone knows that I’m a big fan of Brian Powell’s work so when I heard they were coming out with their own line of mouthpieces I just had to try one. I really love this NYC mouthpiece. It has a great blend of a bright sound and a fat tone. Many mouthpieces that are brighter sounding can also be thin sounding. To me this one has a singing quality about it up high. The notes just sound beautiful.
It has the perfect amount of resistance for me. I feel like I’m blowing against something and the tone is shapeable. This one is a keeper for me. i wanted to do another clip recorded the way I recorded all my other clips so you could hear how it sounds in comparison to the other clips. I pretty sure that youtube compresses the audio when it uploads a video so here’s another audio clip for you to compare. I took down the youtube version just because I felt it didn’t show the true quality of the sound.
