I started working on the design of the 10MFAN "SHOWTIME" tenor mouthpiece when I released The Classic model.
This is for the guys that love my Category 1 mouthpiece The Classic, and want a piece that has much more power, brights, and punch. This is the perfect fit for my 2nd Category focussed mouthpiece. The Robusto is my 2nd Category spread mouthpiece and I now have the perfect piece for a focussed option, like I have with my other categories.
This piece is an incredible all-around mouthpiece that can do it all. I just have to say this because I really feel this way... this is an absolute masterpiece of a mouthpiece. Itís loud and full and can be played so quiet and take all the air you want when you want to play it as loud as you can.
Eric Falcon called me when he finished facing this last prototype, and was BLOWN AWAY! He said he MUST have one for himself as soon as I could get him one, because he wants to gig on it IMMEDIATELY. He was floored by how this piece came out and said he actually likes it more than The Robusto. (Thats blaspheme, I tell ya!...lol).
I am an old-school Gene Ammons, Dex, Sonny type guy, and this piece absolutely floors me. Itís more focused and a little more powerful than the Robusto.
The sound has so many options...it can be warm, mellow, powerful, brighter, punchier, etc... It does it all.
Not a Cat 3 piece, but can easily be used for jazz, R&B, funk, etc....Eric says for him, its even more versatile than the Robusto with more juice.
Its another unique design and Eric is putting a special facing curve on this to optimize the design.

Merlot----------spread, warm, and open sounding
The Classic----focussed, warm, and open sounding
Robusto----spread, warm, open with sizzle and more punch available than the Cat 1 pieces. Great all-around piece.
Showtime----focussed, warm, open with sizzle and more punch available than the Cat 1 pieces AND Robusto. Great all-around piece.
Black Widow----Powerful piece designed for the jazz player who wants more punch and brights than the Cat 1 +2 pieces. Easy to get into and control for a jazz player because of the design. Can be used for jazz or anything funky, and won't get overly bright.
Super Widow----This will be released in 10 days or so. Super powerhouse piece with WAY more punch and brights than the Cat 1 +2 pieces and the BW. Its for the player that likes higher baffle, lower beak, more focus, more cut, more brights---you know, SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO REALLY LET LOOSE!!! ￼Perfect for funk, pop, smooth jazz, Rock, R&B, etc....
