Thank you, and welcome to Phil-Tone by Le Son. Nearly two decades ago an obsession with achieving the perfect setup resulted in the creation of the first Phil-Tone mouthpiece. Since that time Phil-Tone has grown to serve the most demanding musicians across the globe. A steadfast commitment to needs of the individual player and a consistent dedication to expand both design and craft are the cornerstones of the Phil-Tone brand. This philosophy flows through the execution of each and every mouthpiece.
Phil-Tone mouthpieces are crafted by hand one at a time from safe and certified materials. Each mouth piece is balanced, adjusted, and extensively play tested in order to provide optimum performance. At Phil-Tone every mouthpiece is also individually evaluated from a musical perspective so that each player receives the best possible experience.
The saxophone mouthpiece is the critical point in which we begin to merge with our instrument and realize our fullest potential. My personal goal is to help facilitate this event. It continues to be my pleasure and privilege to be a part of the music of so many. At Phil-Tone, it’s not just about the mouthpiece, it’s about the music.

THE NEW Mosaic and Tribute LTD.
Players are asking for them so here they are:
Available only through direct sales is: The new Mosaic and Tribute LTD. These pieces have extensive handwork and deliver more edge, guts, and volume than the standard versions. On both models you will find significantly more baffle and a host of other small changes.
The Limited Edition Tribute rests somewhere between a great Florida Link and an EB. Some EB pieces I have played go past the area of bright and into the ugly bright range that wipes out the essence of a link. Not so with this piece. Its got punch, power and volume but maintains that classic link core and can still play warm when you want.
The Limited Edition Mosaic adds power and punch to another already loved mouthpiece. Its not as dark as it has considerably more baffle. Its a great balls to the walls piece that does'nt have to scream to be noticed.
These are not just named LTD. They are limited as production of them is costly and very labor intensive.
They come in bare brass. Any size you want over a 7. They are custom pieces but I will offer trials on standard sizes but there is a restock fee (sorry Ive gotta do it on these)
