Mouthpieces

ASC’s designs are modern mouthpieces rooted in tradition. In this line of mouthpieces, I am taking the best features from tried and tested designs and blend them into unique modern mouthpieces.

I also offer customization of tip opening, facing length, facing curve and baffle height if you want your preferred mouthpiece parameters copied onto an ASC design.


SOPRANO SAXOPHONE


“Easiest playing piece I tried thus far. Not overly bright nor dark. Right in the middle. Great job and fantastic piece!

SCIROCCO – S$178/US$135

The Scirocco is a warm and powerful Mediterranean wind that comes from the Sahara.

This hard rubber piece has a small chamber with a squeezed throat. It is inspired by the legendary Selmer Soloist mouthpiece of the 50s. It has a sweet, warm sound which is neither too bright nor too dark. The facing curve makes it easy to control from pianississimo (ppp) to fortississimo (fff).

Available in the following tip openings (+/-.002″):

6 (.060″) – 7 (.065″) – 8 (.070″)


ALTO SAXOPHONE


MISTRAL – S$188/US$140

The Mistral is a strong wind that blows from Southern France into the Mediterranean.

This hard rubber piece has a medium round chamber and a small rollover baffle. It is inspired by two of my favorite pieces, the Brilhart Tonalin and the Meyer Bros. It has a medium bright sound with rich lows, clear mediums and powerful, but not harsh, highs. This is a very versatile piece that allows you to easily shape your sound the way you like it.

Available in the following tip openings (+/-.002″):

5 (.070″) – 6 (.075″) – 7 (.080″)


TENOR SAXOPHONE


“It is FANTASTIC!!!! I really couldn’t put the horn down once I started playing. It’s everything I asked for. You really nailed it, man. I mean really.

Congratulations on producing such a work of art. You are the man.

“Your Foehn was so much fun to play! The tone is so thick and colorful. The altissimo range is a breeze to play. It projects almost as well as a high step baffle mouthpiece. This will definitely be my go to piece when I need to be loud.”

FOEHN – S$198/US$145

The Foehn is a dry, warm, down-slope wind blowing in the Alps.

This hard rubber piece has a medium-large round chamber and a customizable rollover baffle. It is a crossover between a Slant Sig and an EB. It has a medium sound with lush lows and powerful highs. This piece is fitted with a very responsive facing curve for projection and the right amount of resistance to push against for better control of the altissimo register. This piece is at ease in a variety of situations from big band to pop music.

Available in the following tip openings (+/-.002″):

7 (.100″) – 7* (.105″) – 8 (.110″)
