    Curious how do you feel after playing it for a few months?
    Now I will say to all of you youngster what i heard when i was a kid from an old-timer. He said, 'Son, you're young and growing and I'm old and going. So have your fun while you can.'

    One year later the Jury is in. After playing the Sakshama alto G mpc a few months I found the .100 tip too much..

    I sent it back to trade it for an identical .090 tipped model, it's much closer to the original feel and sound I was looking for. The response and tone is more than equal to the original DG studio that I played for yrs.

    This mpc has become a keeper.

    Wow! You played it for a few months and Sakshama let you send it back to exchange for another mouthpiece? I've never heard of a mouthpiece maker doing that before!

    Hi Steve he charged me a reasonable fee...my orig .100 btw was completely unblemished and still looked new, I'm sure who ever he sells (or sold) it to will be very pleased

    Sakshama is an awesome guy to deal with. I had a very positive experience buying a mouthpiece from him a few years back.

    I am still so pleased with my Sakshama Alto G. I just had my VII alto restored and the 2 together are simply amazing, the best alto sound and smoothest response I ever had on the horn.

    I've done that, if demand exceeds supply, I'll take in a used PPT, obviously it can only be sold on as used though.

    I hear ya Pete... My Sak G had been carefully played with a patch and for all purposes was still like brand new. But I'm sure Sak disclosed the fact it was pre-owned..

    BTW, I'm talking to a SOTW'er that absolutely loves your PPT, The player is a monster, that mpc sounds like a KILLER to me. He raves about it..!!

    You have some fantastic mpcs on your site.!! Congrats man.
