A MODERN TAKE ON A CLASSIC DESIGN
Aizen endeavors to bridge the gap with its mouthpiece, drawing inspiration from the renowned Gregory model. Featuring a subtly curved side wall, a low baffle, and a medium chamber, this piece produces a luxurious, dark, and warm tone. Designed for effortless playability without any sense of strain, the ASGR Alto Sax Mouthpiece accommodates a wide range of playing styles. Particularly effective in the middle and higher registers, it allows players to achieve the exquisite dry-Martini Paul Desmond sound.

I was actually quite surprised how much like Desmond's sound it was. The piece was actually very resistant I found, even going to a soft reed on a 6 was still a hard push, which gave it that dry dark sound that Gregorys were famous for. It also accounts for the very centered and focused core it gives, almost like a classical mouthpiece, but the sound around that was much larger with more projection. It is also has quite a lot of top end in the sound as well, not necessarily brightness, but this edge that just floats at the top of the sound which really brings out the top notes. Also the profile of the beak of the mouthpiece is quite thin, like a Berg Larsen, Selmer Concept or Lebayle AT etc, and the tip rail is astoundingly thin which should make for great performance. Interestingly, I usually suggest either trying a tip opening larger than normal on an Aizen but I definitely wouldn't try that with this one. Overall an interesting piece, which will have the 'Take 5 sound'. - Matthew - sax.co.uk
