Due to the huge success I have had with these ORANGE ULTEM pieces for the last six months, I am now making these Ultem mouthpieces available all year round in all of my alto and tenor models, in all of the tip openings. They can now be ordered directly from my website.
I want to thank my friend Ron Coehlo for trying out this material first. He really found a great resonant and super stable material for mouthpieces, and I encourage all of you to check out his RPC mouthpiece line. Ron makes beautiful pieces! I’m happy to be offering this material because it really is outstanding.
These hand finished, semi transparent orange mouthpieces are only $365 each for alto, and the tenors are only $385 each just like their hard rubber counterpart that I offers.
***A DISCLAIMER FOR THE ULTEM MATERIAL***
Some of the Ultem pieces will show some machine marks on the inside of the Ultem pieces because they are semi transparent. Its NOTHING to worry about. Any marks are from a tool path change and it does not affect anything. It’s part of the process when making the orange pieces because of the material. (We cannot hide that because it’s see through). It just depends on how difficult the particular model design is to cut with the tooling paths. Some models like the Classic and Robusto rarely ever show a mark because they are more open designs internally. If you see tool path marks, don’t fret, just play and have fun with the mouthpiece. My Chameleon mouthpiece always shows a little divot mark just under the table. Again, it affects absolutely nothing.
I play test EVERY PIECE myself, so I know for a fact that NO mark you see will affect the playability of any the mouthpieces. That is for sure. I am all about the playability and sound of my pieces.
