    Default Tenor Mouthpiece Website

    Hey Everyone,
    New website is www.neffmusic.com
    I just got a piece back from Ed Zentera and decided to put a recording on there. I'm always trying different pieces so I figured I'd see if this might help any of you out there who are like me. I have 8 tenor piece right now and am trying to decide what I want to keep and what I will sell. I'm not looking for any feedback on my playing at all. I'm just playing what ever I feel at the moment. This is in no way suppose to be a studio type recording just me goofing around. I am interested in what you guys might think of the sound or tone of the piece. This is just a hobby for me so as I have time I'll post more recordings. I hope this will help some of you out there(although it might hurt those of you with GAS ) Let me know how the website works. thanks, steve

    Wow, what a player you are!
    Very impressed. I have the feeling you'll sound great on just any mouthpiece, I am now curious to hear you on others.
    Well done and thank you!

    Sounds very nice to me throughout the range of the instrument. I agree with rispoli, though: it would be good to hear more tracks with other mouthpieces. Otherwise, it's hard to comment on the mouthpiece; impossible to know what aspects of the sound are due to the mouthpiece, rather than to your playing style, embouchure, breathing, etc., recording hardware, the instrument, neck, etc., etc.

    Steve's a KILLER player and I've always enjoyed his big, focussed sound when he's been over to check out mpc's here.
    Great guy to work with too, so if he has mpc's he's selling that he says are GREAT players but just not the sound he's looking for...believe him, he knows what he's talking about.

    Nice soundclips...always great to hear you!

    WOW. sounds great even with the built in mic.

    at teh beginning it sounded to have a bit more edge than I liked, but then it settled down, nice resonant full sound. is that the Barone he called the "standard" a berg with out the problems?

    Great idea!!!

    The one clip you have on there is excellent. You can really hear the nuances in the mouthpiece.

    I look forward to you posting the others

    Very nice, Steve. Nice sound and you sound very comfortable on the mouthpiece.

    hey, thanks guys. The mouthpiece is the NY model. I'm going to put more clips on later this week when I get a chance of some other pieces I have. Steve

    Steve,

    Good stuff! I'd like to hear the other pieces up there too.

    Isn't having a smoking section in a restaurant like having a peeing section in a swimming pool?

    I'm both incredibly impressed and honored. Steve is a very discerning client (as are many other SOTW-ers). It was a real pleasure to work with him on this particular mpc project - especially to be able to hear the results. I sincerely look forward to any comparative analysis.

    Congatulations, your playing is exceptional!, so much that after listening to your clip I found this Barone NY on ebay and just won the auction :

    Ed, I might also send you this Barone if I also find it a bit too bright.

    Ok, I posted a new mp3. It's with a Guardala MB II new production from WWBW. Let me know what you think. Can you hear a difference between it and the Barone or No? I have a question also for you audio experts out there. Right now I'm about a foot away from the mic. Would you get more of the characteristics of the mouthpiece where I am or should I back up and record from across the room. I just figured doing it close would be better. Thanks, Steve

    I can hear a difference.

    Barone is more Link-like, rounder, warmer. A little fatter in the lowest register, too.
    You play so effortlessly on the Barone (better facing?), very fast tonguing comes admirably easy. You really enjoy playing it.

    MB II was not so bright as I expected. But a little brighter and somehow narrower than the Barone. Narrower but not thin, I think. Lower register not so fat as with the Barone.

    Anyway on both pieces you definitely sound like yourself. I just like the Barone more.
    Very fine playing!

    I like the Barone better as it has a lush quality that the Guardala lacks. The Guardala does have a bit more power, but it's not as full.

    Are you using the iMac internal mic? Btw, how do you like using iWeb?

    I also posted an example of the first 20 II-V-I licks that I'm selling on another thread on soprano so some of you who asked can get an idea what these sound like. Thanks, Steve
