Phil-Tone Intrepid mouthpiece for tenor sax
It projects while maintaining a balanced buzz and warmth through the range.
Tip opening: .105" (Like Otto Link 7*)
The powerful, fearless, and bold, Intrepid is now offered in limited numbers. While it looks a lot like the Sapphire on the inside a lof of new things are going on. Rather than a rollover, it sports a Reso Chamber style flat angled step baffle. This gives a big bold and colorful tone with texture and a great buzz. The window is also longer than in other Links (and the Sapphire) There is a lot of handwork in this piece. The Intrepid. It is vibrant, powerful, and projects while maintaining a balanced buzz and warmth through the range. It is a beautifully voiced piece for a discerning palate.
Here are the mouthpieces we recommend:
Intrepid for tenor sax: Reminds us of vintage Otto Link pieces from the 40's and 50's. Colorful and powerful, with warmth throughout the entire register.
Eclipse for tenor sax: A power-piece, that a lot of our funk/rock/blues players fall for. A lot of mouthpieces lose their core or focus if you push them too hard, but the Eclipse can take it.
Equinox for tenor sax: Think of this as an “Early Babbitt” but with more focus. This mouthpiece plays ‘dry’ with more sizzle and edge, but without sounding like a Guardala or Berg Larsen.
Rift for alto sax: This mouthpiece has more of a punch than the others, because of the double baffle. A lot of pieces like this become a bit too sharp, but the Rift gets the job done without compromising the warmth of the tone.
Solstice for alto sax: Reminds us a bit of vintage Meyer pieces, with a round chamber for plenty of warmth. We like this model because it can take a lot of air, and you can push it more than other mouthpieces. A very ‘West Coast’ sound.
Custom Meyer for alto sax: This is just a standard Meyer that we send to Phil, and he refaces. The result is still a Meyer, but a really, really good one.
Holy cow det er et fedt mundstykke! Havde aldrig troet jeg skulle bruge så mange penge på et mundstykke. Men efter at have spillet på mit Otto Link i 15 år ville jeg gerne prøve noget andet. Og det her er ubeskriveligt meget bedre på alle måder!
