Bullet Baffle, thin ring in Back-Bore for resistance. This mouthpiece is great for Rock and high energy music.
Using the same baffle as the NY Studio this mouthpiece has an open Back-Bore bringing the excitement of New York City to life! This mouthpiece is dedicated to the New York Saxophone gods!

Similar baffle to the New Orleans, but with an open Back-Bore this mouthpiece has a warm delicious traditional sound. Growing up in Scituate, MA, later Berklee College of Music this mouthpiece reflects my life journey as a mouthpiece maker. Like the Phoenix rising from the ashes to once again make mouthpieces!
The Passion of this City and its inspiration to jazz music comes alive in this mouthpiece. It has a slightly shorter baffle then the New York, but has a ring left inside the Back-Bore to bring sizzle befitting the legendary French Quarter.
Has a Bullet Baffle and Open Back-Bore. This mouthpiece is slightly warmer then the Detroit Rock making it a great Blues piece!
Pieces with this Ring
Ring left in the Back-bore will have more resistance, but creates more punch, power and projection
Pieces without this Ring in the Back-Bore will be slightly warmer, yet more free-blowing.
*This fat bodied mouthpiece is similar in baffle and bore to the New York Studio with a slightly darker sound created by a larger outside body mass.

This mouthpiece has a shorter baffle then the Hollywood Studio and has a thin ring left in the Back-Bore. It is reminiscent of the NY Studio sound.
Sophisticated mouthpiece similar to the Hollywood Studio with the same baffle, but slightly darker as it has an open Back-Bore.
The New York Vintage is the piece that Michael Brecker used. (MB1) This is original Guardala. The blank is an original Guardala blank purchased from Dave Guardala's brother. I have a limited supply of these original Guardala blanks and until they are gone, any Vigilante tenor piece can be made if you would prefer a different model using this vintage blank with bite plate.
An Outstanding mouthpiece which is very versatile thus the name Hollywood Studio. It has a long baffle and a thin ring for resistance left in the Back-Bore.
