Having read the first review on this I decided to step up from my beginners mouthpiece and I am so glad I did. I was very happy with the piece which came with my tenor but the Etude is something else. From first putting it on it was so much smoother and a really easy controlled blow. Hardly any fluffed notes yet, onwards and upwards....
I found this to be an excellent mouthpiece for a beginner that wants a really good starter mouthpiece as well as a more experienced player who wants a cheaper alternative to an Otto Link Tone Edge mouthpiece. A sound which is rich, vibrant and darker, and ideal for Jazz, Blues & Latin music. I preferred with filed reeds - broadest tonal palette.
