This is a Phil Tone Rift 0.76 tip opening which is a 6. This mouthpiece is immediately appealing the moment you blow a few notes on it with a slightly unusual baffle and chamber configuration (its high initially, followed by an immediate dip and then eventually rolls into the medium chamber) you expect a mouthpiece that has a certain brightness but might be hard to control, however, nothing of the sort; for me it has the perfect blend of brightness and fatness.
The sound oozes out without much resistance and the altissimo jumps out at you with ease. For me the sound is in the Meyer tradition, but it plays like a highly tuned Meyer, with more refinement and the ability to push the sound in different directions. Im pretty sure this mouthpiece will be loved by jazz players as well as pop, funk and soul players alike!This is the Rift hard rubber mouthpiece for alto saxophone by Phil-Tone. The mouthpiece is designed with a medium chamber and features rolled baffle below the tip rail. These pieces are built for the straight ahead alto player who wants a warm centered sound but needs a little bit more power and projection. The Rift offers more than just sheer power. It is power with purpose, complexity and integrity.
With a sweeping dynamic range and formidable projection it cuts through space without becoming shallow or thin. Its voice will not be silenced.
The Rift supports a unique combination of mouthpiece design elements. It utilizes bore modifications with a rollover baffle and a special secondary baffle in the floor. This facilitates highs that are crisp and a deeply resonant low end.With its rich focused core the Rift is an easy to blow, but does offer some cushion to provide excellent control. The Rift is a versatile mouthpiece for those seeking additional power, and dynamics. This is one of the most colorful alto pieces in existence. Even the palm keys, which are too frequently thin, have texture and color. If you have any questions please dont hesitate to contact me and I will try to respond promptly.
Buyers from outside the UK will pay the configured rate for Priority International. Thanks for looking and good luck. Note: No Ligature, cap or reed is included, only the mouthpiece.
