Mouthpiece Cafe NYC 6 Alto Mouthpiece

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 Read More…

LAW MCB 6* (Prototype)

I received this piece a few weeks ago from Laurie Waldron in the UK. He’s been making great tenor mouthpieces for awhile and now he’s taking a shot at some alto mouthpieces.
