Testimonial from Kris Brownlee
If I had to describe this mouthpiece in one word, it would be “bold.” As a smooth jazz artist, I look for a tone that makes me stand out from the
pack. And this mouthpiece does just that. The bold and dark tone is not dull, but very open and resonant.
The altissimo register speaks with ease and never closes up. This mouthpiece has plenty of volume too.
The large chamber handles all of the air I can throw at it without hesitation while keeping the core sound intact.
Thanks Aizen for crafting such a masterpiece.
