SECOND CATEGORY: FIRST OPTION
Gene Ammons vibe!!! Spread, fat, warm, with punch when needed.
I designed the Robusto to be my personal tenor mouthpiece—-and it is. For me, this offers the perfect blend of lows, mids, + highs, and has a rich color palette and wide dynamic range. The sound has a really great fullness with beautiful punch available when you want it. More power, punch, and brightness available than the category one Classic mouthpiece. This has a timeless “hard bop ny tenor sound” and a modern Jazz sound is available from it at the same time, with a nice sizzle on top when you want it. Plenty of room to let loose with this piece. It offers great body and depth. it’s clean and powerful with a huge, full body of sound. Like all my mouthpieces, the sound “opens up” beautifully as you push it. The altissimo sing with a fullness on this piece. They do not get thin or edgy for me. This piece is a phenomenal all-around straight ahead jazz hard rubber mpc. My hard rubber Robusto absolutely smokes the vintage slants, resos, and early babbitt links, for me. Much more depth, body, and core
DESIGN: This has a medium height, medium length baffle, flat sidewalls, a nice med-large chamber, with the floor dropping slightly after the baffle.
