This is a Peter Ponzol M1 that I purchased just for the heck of it. I have tried a bunch of M2’s but never a M1( Maybe in a store once) This is a really nice piece. It a bit brighter than the Ponzol ML tenor mouthpiece I played before but a bit darker than the Ponzol M2 mouthpieces that I have played before.
If you listen to the sound clip you can hear that I get more comfortable with it as I play it. I only played it for about 10 minutes but when I finished the clip I was feeling like i wanted to play it some more and that I hadn’t reached the full potential of the mouthpiece. I used to love the ML but this might be my favorite now of the Ponzol mouthpieces. It has a smoothness to it that I really loved. The real test is to play it out on a gig though. I’ve played many mouthpieces that sound great in the practice room but when you get out on a gig you can’t hear yourself. Listen to the clip and you can decide for yourself if you like the tone of it. Let me know what you think. Steve
