The best way I can describe this mouthpiece is: Its a medium chamber, medium height step baffle with straight side walls. It has the body and great intonation of a well made medium chamber mouthpiece, and the punch, brights, and sparkle of a small chamber mouthpiece. Such a fantastic combination. The perfect lead alto mouthpiece that can be used for jazz or the more ripping stuff. This to me is the perfect “all-around” mouthpiece that can do it all from straight ahead, bop, hard bop, R&B, smooth jazz—you name it!
This is the first 10MFAN alto model I will introduce and it is the one that I am personally using. Its called THE SHOWBOAT, as a tribute to my alto hero, Mr. Phil Woods. Most of you know his album, “Live from the Showboat”, and its simply stellar. If you haven’t checked it out, you MUST! Cheek to Cheek—ridiculous!
THE SHOWBOAT is a complete joy to play. Nothing at all to do with a Meyer design, and I am proud of that. People will ask what it sounds like, and my answer is, it sounds just like what I envisioned my personal alto mouthpiece to sound like and play. The feel, the sound, the flexibility…everything. Full, powerful, clear, and strong.
