Guardala MBII Tenor Saxophone MouthpieceThe Guardala MBII tenor saxophone mouthpiece helps you capture the fusion sound that defined the 1980s. The Guardala MBII offers plenty of edge but also reproduces the fat, bottom sound associated with the greatest tenor saxophonists of the last 25 years.

This mouthpiece is GREAT! It has very good intonation, resonance, and tembre from top to bottom of the sax. I just love the mouthpiece. I had order four of them for me and my friends. They also love this mouthpiece.
Could be a good piece but it is quite open. Puzzling that there are no tip sizing options. I guess they may envision a system with a very soft reed (2.5).
Great CNC'd mouthpiece at a great price. Very consistent. Fantastic sound that can be shaped to fit the style of music.
I bought my MB II and it is the greatest sounding mouthpiece in the world. Just put it on your sax and blow one note. You won't be able to put your horn down. I have tried at least 15 mouthpieces from WWBW and this is the one I have been looking for. Bright, beautiful and easy to play. Frazier
I have been playing professionally for around 15 years from jazz quartet, to rocking bar cover band, to big band and everything along the way. I have played a Runyon 8 metal for the past ten years. It has served me VERY well. I still like the super high (Lenny Picket type) altissimo it provides in the right blues/funk settings. That having been said, my MBII arrived yesterday after a lengthy backorder and some fabulous customer service and I quickly went to work on the beauty. I play Rico 2.5 on the runyon 8 but its tip opening is about 15 thousandths less than the MBII. I sound good but was working pretty hard and had fuzzy tone down low and at low volumes. I bought some Rico 2.0 today and WOW! I have never had such clear lows and even tonal color throughout the entire range of my horn (Selmer series II no laquer). Altissimo is not as easy or clean as the runyon but the tonal center well more than makes up for it. I will get used to the MBII just like I did the runyon. This piece is not for the beginner. Be warned. But, with the right chops, it is well worth the money. Happy Playing.
Once I played on this mouthpiece I will never go back. My first mouthpiece I ever used was a Otto Link and this mouthpiece is way beyond that. This gave me the tone that I have searched for forever. Amazing mouthpiece and I suggest everyone to give this a try.
Was not impressed when I first played this MP with the included ligature. Was about to send the MP back when I decided to order a BG metal ligature. What a difference a ligature makes. The ligature that comes with this MP is pretty much a "Throw away". The MBII has just the right balance of edge and body. The sound has a good "core" to it. Intonation is the best I have ever played. Low notes don't honk and the altissimo is easily jumps out.
It might be an unbelievable mouthpiece. I never got to put the MBII to the playing test. Are you serious WWBW for sending out a ligature that you can't put a reed on with? That ligature could barely fit a toothpick, let alone put a reed on! Let me look through my home inventory of ligatures to try to find one that will fit the mouthpiece... or go to the local music store to buy a usable lig for a trial piece. I am embarrassed for WWBW for sending out an incompatible ligature for what might be a great mouthpiece! Get a WWBW product specialist to select a ligature that can be used for this mouthpiece. It might improve your sales for the MBII!
I have played on the Studio mpc for years now and finally was able to order the MBII.
It plays like a Guardala. Free blowing, powerful,
and in tune. Slightly larger overall sound with a greater ease of blowing. More ballsy in the low register which is pretty amazing since the Studio is a powerful mouthpiece in it's own right.
There are sites that have $600 and $700 copies of these mouthpieces, but I don't see the reason to pay more.
I am very demanding when it comes to mouthpieces and Guardala has definitely spoiled me.
the workmanship on these mouthpieces is flawless to my eye.
I have read that, in blinfold tests , the CNC mpc is picked about half the time,in the comparisons with the old handmade pieces, so again, why pay north of $1000 for a funky looking old mpc, when you can have a great looking new one.?
I wanted to try a mpc that could cut through a bands sound in the rock genre and this one has definitely done just that. This thing is loud, I mean it is really loud. Make sure that when you order this piece you order a few of them for trial because each one is completely different. The first MBII (gold) I tried was extremely free blowing and so bright that I immediately said "nope" not the one and the middle register just sounded thin with no core.Brecker had core throughout all of the registers. The second mouthpiece I tried was much darker and still had the edge. Also, the sound had core in the middle register and a little back pressure which I like.I was sold on #2. The final MBII I tried was bright but not as bright as the first one so that one was a no go for me.This last one had no middle register core to the sound.
The plus to all of the MBIIs I tried was that the altissimo register speaks easily and same with the lower register. I can only play this mpc for a limited amount of time because it is so loud.I'm planning on wearing ear plugs when gigging with this mpc.
