OVERVIEW

A high end dream!

Surgical grade stainless steel. High end software for CAD CAM design and the best CNC machines has made this new mouthpiece possible. This design, together with the new material, results in a darker warmer sound, with even greater projection. Even if you have one or more Ponzol mouthpieces, you owe it to yourself to try the M2SL.

Versatile. Excellent!

Comments about Peter Ponzol M2 Stainless Steel Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

Any comments about mouthpieces are extremely subjective. The following is my subjective experience: I like this mouthpiece a lot! I have a Vandoren V16 metal, Link, Link NY, Berg rubber - this has become my go-to mouthpiece for big band and rock/funk. I compared it to Dukoff (too bright), Lebayle Studio (sterile), and settled on the Ponzol. It really opened up my M6's mid register (D and E flat) like no other mouthpiece. The altissimo is readily available but does take a little more control than on some of my other pieces. The lower end definitely requires more support, it just takes practice. One negative (for me) - the reed tends to collect more saliva, which can make the piece bark. Sound? I can get it to scream, blend, be bright, relatively dark (but this is not a dark mp). The sound is very focused, which I love. Until this mp, I was having a hard time being heard over the sax section (and those darn trumpets), but I can cut through now. I'd give this a 5 star rating, but that would mean I'd found the perfect mouthpiece, and I don't think that exists. For me, this is very close!

Comments about Peter Ponzol M2 Stainless Steel Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I'm another person who doesn't usually write reviews, but here I am. First, thanks to WWBW's trial policy which is well worth the extra few dollars to try up to 4 MP's at a time. I have spent my entire life playing on Hard Rubber. With the band I'm in now (10 piece Rock and Roll with some R&B) I have been called on to solo more. Where my Vandoren T75 was cutting it, I thought it was time I should branch out. The opening on the T75 is 105 and I was leery of going to 110 so I trialed the Ponzol with 105,a Guardala MBII which is 110,and a Guardala Crescent, 105. The sound man for the band actually made the decision with an emphatic thumbs up when he heard the Ponzol. I can do anything with this piece with ease and with much more projection than before. It blends well with the other 4 horns and when I want to solo, wow! From softer ballad solo's to screaming in the higher and altissimo range it has never been so easy or sound so full and appealing. I would have liked to try the 110 Ponzol as the 105 was so easy to play. Bottom line is if you're like me and afraid to make the move and get confused after reading review after review, you will not be sorry you tried a Ponzol! A suggestion would be to try both the 105 and the 110. Love this rich looking very high quality mouthpiece!

Great, great mouthpiece

Comments about Peter Ponzol M2 Stainless Steel Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I've been playing the M2 110 for about a year and I am really satisfied with it. When I try another one of my other mouthpieces (Link 8, Dukoff 7) I am always a bit startled at the difference. The Ponzol has the edge of the Dukoff but with much wider tonal range. And the Link sounds so stuffy compared to the Ponzol. Honestly, I can't imagine playing anything but the Ponzol. The construction is flawless with nice even tip to accommodate every style reed. I've been playing Rico Royal 2.5 reeds with the stock Rovner lig and they sound just right. I just bought a new Yamaha 82Z (silver) and it sounds incredible with the Ponzol. Sigh......

Amazing Mouthpiece

Comments about Peter Ponzol M2 Stainless Steel Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I've been looking for a mouthpiece like this for a long time. It's very versatile. Easy to play from PP to FF, Lower to Altissimo. It plays in tune, and the sound is fantastic! It blends well with the sax section as well as other horns, and instruments, acoustic and electric alike and when it comes to your solo you can just play BEAUTIFULLY and loud. The range of sound colors you can produce is amazing! Don't worry if you have to tune it at the middle of the neck cork (slightly out compared with bigger chamber mouthpieces). I observed this and Peter told me it's ok as far as the mouthpiece is well adjusted with the cork. I replaced my cork and it worked just fine. I use it with Vandoren ZZ #3 for a darker more jazzy sound and Vandoren Classic # 2.5 reeds for brighter sound and ease of articulation

Amazing Mouthpiece!

Comments about Peter Ponzol M2 Stainless Steel Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I've been playing sax for 43 years-all as an adult. I've played or trialed quite a list of mouthpiece brands over the years. I've always wanted to find a big/full, somewhat darkish , but very loud mouthpiece- kind of an early 50's R&B tone. Usually the very loud ones tend to have a thin or shrilly sound, and the big ,darker sounding ones have no volume. The Ponzol M2 Stainless 110 tenor piece has all three qualities I want. I've had this one since Dec. 2008. It has a beautiful, rich tone and able to go from very loud to soft subtone at will, and when miked can easily "compete" with loud keys, bass, drums and guitars. Altissimo notes play easily.As loud as it can get ,it never gets shrill on the upper register. Most surprising is how dark and warm this piece can sound in the middle and lower register considering the high baffle- truly baffling! it can be used successfully in a jazz setting or a loud rock setting. If I want to brighten it up a bit, I use a different lig, such as the BOIS ring ligature, which is the perfect size for the Ponzol and really frees up the vibration of the reed.The Rovner Lite lig which comes with it has a "taming effect" on the sound. More tonal variations also come with different brands and sizes of reeds. I prefer 2.5 Rico Royals or Vandoren ZZ's for cane and Fibracell 2.5 for synthetic. The facings, tables and tips are as good as any refaced piece I've owned. It is therefore quite reed friendly. I initially balked at the relatively high price, but for me, it is well worth it to be able to obtain the tone , potential volume and ease of playing I like. I am quite content with this mouthpiece. Sometimes I'll do a comparison test of a few of my favorite mouthpieces and I'll ask my bandmates or my WIFE which mouthpiece they prefer, They always pick the Ponzol- and my wife is quite particular!!
