The sound of hard rubber with the projection of metal.
With the Aluminum Vintage Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece, Peter Ponzol has faithfully re-created the dark, husky, free-blowing sound of the famous vintage mouthpieces. Since it is made of aluminum it is lighter weight, but yields more projection and response without sacrificing the tone. A CNC lathe is used to cut the mouthpiece's basic shape. Then the mouthpiece is hand finished and tested for the right sound and feel. Included with the mouthpiece is a Rovner ligature and cap.

Comments about Peter Ponzol Aluminum Vintage Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:
Surprisingly lightweight but don't let that turn you off. This is unique piece. A littler darker than the II V I model that is one of the pieces this replaces thus making it not quite as loud and a little closer to a Link. Chamber appears to be slightly larger and begins sooner than my II V I. This piece sounds a bit like it was made of hard rubber but has the projection of a metal piece. This is ever so slightly mellower than the stainless steel version and has a bit more "fuzz" on the sound. Piece is not stuffy and plays evenly throughout the registers. Reed friendly. Primarily recommended for acoustic Jazz players. Not for guys that want to rock out and or get super loud.
