THE LEGENDARY BRILHARTS ARE BACK!
The distinctive features of the Carlsbad Ebolin models have been faithfully preserved, encompassing elements such as the white bite plate seamlessly integrated into the black ebonite, the 'Brilhart' stamp positioned at a slant across the barrel, the model designation stamped on the shank, and the serial number imprinted on the right of the table. What adds to the significance of the re-emergence of this iconic mouthpiece is the use of the original molds from Arnold Brilhart's Elkhart production in the 1950s. Each mouthpiece undergoes meticulous individual hand-finishing, ensuring the attainment of the highest possible quality. The Tonalin models, renowned for achieving an excellent balance of warmth and edge, gain a new lease of life through the revival of the authentic production methods. This presents a remarkable opportunity to acquire a piece of musical history.
Arnold Brilhart's legacy in mouthpiece craftsmanship spans various locations, from New York to Carlsbad in California and subsequently Great Britain. Saxophone virtuosos, including the likes of Lester Young (Ebolin model) and Charlie Parker (notably the white Tonalin, and also the Ebolin), have left their mark on Brilhart models. While not all models may be in current production, the return of the Ebolin is a cause for celebration, offering enthusiasts a chance to reconnect with a classic piece and its storied history.

I have an old Brilhart and was very curious to try these new ones when they arrived. Straight away, these feel a tiny bit brighter and seem to have a bigger sound than my old one. The overall feel of the mouthpiece is good, easy to control and the sound is consistent. Although the design and material is the same, there is a clear difference between the two mouthpiece. The new one has a bigger sound and a lot more brighter than mine, and that's perfectly fine. I'd recommend to anyone who wants a mouthpiece that they can play without much effort and don't require a massive sound. Tommy (Sax London)
