“The Showboat” alto mouthpiece:
Great powerhouse mouthpiece that combines classic Phil Woods with a modern power and punch. More cut, power, more free blowing, and more brilliance, to the sound than the Daddy-O model. It takes it to the next level, for the guys that want that. Think 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s Phil Woods here with more brights and pop available, if you need that. Great for jazz and well-suited for contemporary playing! Such a fantastic lead alto mouthpiece sound! More punch and highs available in the Showboat model than in the Daddy-O model. It’s a shorter and higher baffle compared to the Daddy-O model. Its got all the volume anyone would ever need, but can also be played to a whisper. The sound is thick and full throughout. Think Phil Woods here with more brights and punch! Much more aggressive than the Daddy-O model, by design.
DESIGN: Medium height long baffle with straight sidewalls and a round medium chamber
