The Meyer and Meyer Brothers Alto saxophone mouthpiece has been the mainstay of Alto Players for over half a century. For years these were carefully hand faced. Unfortunately, current production models lack the precision and attention given to those of past legend. The Phil-Tone Meyer is a corrected and customized version of the current Babbitt Meyer. The table is flattened, the throat is slightly enlarged, and a proper facing is applied for ease of play and rapid response. The result is a classic mouthpiece with a rich tonal palette that is never shrill or thin. Expect deeper lows, a strong midrange, and highs that project with clarity and resonance.
I have repeatedly played these pieces back to back with absurdly priced NY Meyers and they stack up every time every time in both playing experience and in the ears of critical listeners. There are slight differences but certainly not a three hundred, five hundred, or thousand dollar difference. Don’t get caught up in the vintage hype, there is another way.
