This is a Sakshama “lost wax” florida link metal mouthpiece that I received from Sakshama Koloski a few months ago. He was gracious enough to let me try one of his mouthpieces. I put lost wax in quotations because I’m not sure exactly what that means. This mouthpiece is a great example of a great playing link. For me it had a thicker brighter sound to it. It reminded me of more of a John Coltrane, Jerry Bergonzi, Walt Weiskopf type sound. That is the sound I was reminded of when I played this mouthpiece. This mouthpiece had a .108 tip opening on it. The Vandoren Java 2 1/2 reeds I had felt too soft so I went for the Java 3’s. Unfortunately, I was in a hurry to send this back because of a trip I was going on and forgot to take any pictures of it. It’s been sitting on my hard drive since August but I thought I’d put it up for those of you who are interested. Let me know what you think.
