Patterned after the sound of King Curtis, a combination of the Detroit and Texas sound, the Guardala King tenor sax mouthpiece incorporates a high baffle and a small chamber. The Guardala King fits well in mainstream Bebop, jazz, and contemporary pop.
The Guardala metal tenor saxophone mouthpieces successfully and faithfully reproduce the sound and response of the some of the true legends of saxophone playing.

I was a little skeptical about this product at first because of the large tip opening. But when i played it, it was the best mouthpiece i have ever played, the others are(ce winds, beechler, and a jody jazz HR). It was free blowing, the intonation is great, and its projection was just right. I reccomend this product to every Tenor Sax Player.
I just got this piece tonight and played it for some time. It has a nice bright edge to its tone yet nice and smooth. Great smooth subtones and makes altissimo easy to reach. It definitely gave me a more modern in combination with my cannonball tenor. No dislikes thus far. I luck forward to building a relationship with this mpc as I put my Vandoren HR to rest for a little while.
I have several of the handmade Guardalas in various models & I can honestly say that this laser trimmed variety is as good in virtually every aspect. Speed of response, intonation from altissimo to sub-tones, flexibility, thickness of tone etc. The one area where it doesn't equal the handmade pieces is its volume. It is still, however, very loud & outblows any Berg, Lakey, Dukoff or Freddie Gregory I have tried. I have used this piece since July in my Soul & Blues bands on both my MK VI & Keilwerth 'Shadow' with equally excellent results. To be perfectly truthfull, I don't envisage ever changing back to the handmade ones, as the slight difference in volume can be overcome with appropriate mixer & PA applification. As if all this wasn't enough, it comes at an unbelievable price as well!!
