The Mosaic was inspired by the hard bop and colorfully rich ballads of Dexter Gordon. It is not a copy of any piece but could best be described as a cross between a Dukoff Hollywood and a Stubby. The Mosaic presents a broad, thick and textured tone. It can safely be said that it has the thickest and most colorful tone of any piece…anywhere. When pushed the Mosaic can become an “In your face” type of piece. It is extremely flexible and always a pleasure to play.
The Mosaic comes without ligature. We recommend the Vandoren Optimum Ligature for their metal V16 Tenor mouthpieces. If you would like this ligature with the mouthpiece, click on the "Ligature Option" when ordering and we will get one out with the mouthpiece.
The tip opening is a 7* (.105"). Custom tips can be requested.
This mouthpiece works very well with the new Andreas Eastman 52nd Street Tenor!!!
