Re: Saxgourmet Fat Boy and Florida Mouthpiece review
Thanks for your kind words, Chad. As a matter of clarification, yes, the BASIC blank is the same for both mouthpieces. Of course, the baffle, facing curve, and beak shape are entirely different, as is the chamber size. Hence the significant difference in sound. The soon to be released Blues Blaster is also made from the same blank, but has an entirely different baffle, beak, chamber, and facing curve.
The blanks are machined from a solid bar of bell quality brass. I hand face each and every one of them and play test each one here in New Orleans.
We're currently awaiting a shipment of Blues Blaster blanks, as well as the blanks for the Low Blow baritone mouthpiece. We will have them on eBay and at www.nationofmusic.com, our retail site.
