Testimonial from Cleave jr.Guyton

Testimonial for AIZEN

For the past twenty years or so, I’ve been looking for a distinct,traditional, "old school sound." I’m finally elated to have found that sound playing Aizen mouthpieces.

Aizen not only has what I’ve been looking for but they are easy to play in all genres of music and the pitch is just wonderful.

I find that the sound is fat and even through all ranges of the horn from low B flat through the altissimo register.

Aizen mouthpieces are the one for me and I’m happy to know that my lifelong search is over."
