Phil-Tone Custom Woodwinds and Theo Wanne Inc. are proud to announce what we hope to be the first in a series of collaborative efforts from the great Northwest. Aptly named “The Tribute”, this endeavor is our way of paying homage to many jazz saxophone legends as well as to a mouthpiece that holds a special place in musical history.
It began as a vast collection of vintage pieces. From this we chose the very best metal vintage Florida for analysis. Through the use of laser mapping, 3d printers, and months of trials and adjustments the goal was achieved; a piece with the richness, color, and vibrance, of the vintage original without modernizations or added “steroids”. The Tribute can whisper or project with attitude. Always complex, always full, its versatility and precise construction opens endless avenues of musical articulation.
No cap or ligature included. If you need something we recommend the Vandoren Optimum Tenor Ligature for V16 Metal Tenor mouthpieces or you can also use the Theo Wanne Enlightened Tenor Ligature. Click oh the "Ligature Option" if you would like to add one of these to your mouthpiece purchase.
The opening is a 7* (.105)
This mouthpiece works very well with the P. Mauriat PMXT-66 R UL or Eastman 52nd Street tenors!!!
