THIRD CATEGORY: FIRST OPTION
“BLACK WIDOW” tenor: “Cross-over” mouthpiece.
Powerful player, great cross-over piece for the jazz player looking to be able to comfortably get over to the more rocking’ stuff, and the more pop/blues/R&B player looking for more fatness in their sound with really good power to it. The Black Widow is a powerful “cross-over” moderate height baffle mouthpiece with huge depth and a vibrant core sound, that can be used for all settings from quiet to nasty funk. More powerful and has more brights than my other models, but is not as bright as a Guardala type piece. This was done on purpose because its my cross-over model. My REALLY bright piece will come out in the Fall of 2020, and its called my Super Widow. If you like that type of balls to the wall bright and punchy piece…stay tuned. This Black Widow model was designed for the jazz guys to use easily, and its also a piece the pop/smooth jazz and funk players will love. Its got some resistance built in so you can color the sound the way you want. A piece thats too free blowing is harder for that. It has become clear that many players want a “cross-over” category piece that is different from the other models. Something easily used for jazz stuff and for guys playing commercial pop, blues, smooth jazz, rock, and funk type of stuff too. Not super bright, but powerful.
The Black Widow will be loved by jazz players looking for a powerful piece that can be used for straight ahead stuff+++, and also the more commercial players looking for another design option for a powerful piece with a longer and more moderate baffle height design that isn’t overly bright at all. This piece is incredibly versatile. This 3rd Category Black Widow mouthpiece has been a super hit so far.
DESIGN: Flat sidewalls, and a medium height very long baffle, and medium large chamber that blows closer to a medium chamber.
