We are very proud and excited to release the Retro Revival "SHORTY," a truly accurate replica of the "Short Shank", "Table Stamp, "round chamber" soprano mouthpiece. Over the years, this highly sought-after mouthpiece from the 50âs became the industry's favorite and is still the standard bearer for soprano mouthpieces. This spectacular performing mouthpiece meticulously hand crafted by Eric Falcon is CNC milled from the best German rod rubber.
Anyone looking for a great âscroll shankâ, knows how rare and difficult it is to find a tip opening larger than a âDâ. Retro Revivalâs "SHORTY" is available in tip sizes from âDâ to âHâ. Our personal search for an original âscroll" took close to three years to then find an âFâ that performed well. In our opinion, these new replicas play better than the originals as everyone has a hand finished facing. Master craftsman Eric Falcon improved the facing in comparison to the originals so there is a noticeable efficiency and sparkle to every SHORTY that will certainly impress. Intonation is the first concern crucial to soprano mouthpieces' performance. SHORTY's harmonics will prove amazingly stable, with just enough resistance to keep the pitch locked, a clean positive response in the palm keys and popping articulation in all registers. Please refer to our video examples of Bob Sheppard and others play testing the "SHORTY".
Iâm sure you can feel our excitement to finally offer this beautiful performing soprano replica. We are certain the "SHORTY" will fill a long standing void in the market eliminating the expense and frustration we have all experienced.
