This a Ralph Morgan MLL 8* tenor saxophone mouthpiece. This use to be a ML model but the owner of the piece sent it to Erik Greiffenhagen to have the chamber made larger so now it is a MLL model. The tip opening of this mouthpiece is an 8* which for a Morgan is a .105. With the larger chamber I have to admit that I like this mouthpiece even more than when it was an ML. It has a big sound and the mouthpiece feels like it is vibrating when I play it. You would think with the bigger chamber it would be less powerful and darker but it feels more powerful to me. The bottom range notes are just lush and full sounding with a nice crispness to them. There seems to be a husky full quality to the notes that I love. The upper range rings nicely and it plays very smoothly and evenly all over the horn.
I wish I could spend more time with this piece but I have to send it back to the owner. This would be a great all round mouthpiece for all styles of music. I could get pretty darn loud with it. I think I will have to order one of these………… Let me know what you think. Steve
