"Good Bright MPC, However it Lacks Control"

I've had a Jumbo Java for the past year, I didn't test it out before I got it, I just bought one because it sounded like what I wanted. Who can resist a metal sound with a rubber feel? I bought it, and it's exactly as it says, the biggest bore, and the fattest chamber! Most ligatures don't even fit it. I had trouble making a tone out of it at first, I mean moving from a Selmer C* to this we're talking mega chamber difference. It wasn't until I started playing a link on my tenor did I really start fully filling the chamber on my A35 Jumbo Java (and I had to drop to a 2.5 size reed (from 3.5)). Here's the problem. I thought I controlled this mpce. Last week I did a gig and had it recorded. When I went back and listened to it, I realized my tone was all over the place. Generally, my high register sounded absolutely fantastic.... My lower register however sounded crap. Even my altissimo C's and D's were clear. In conclusion, I think my verdict for this MPC is that it's really good as a solo mouthpiece. The tone you get will never blend with anyone else. It's a very loud mouthpiece, however, if this is what you want then you'll have to put in alot of work to balance out the sound.

"Worth it!"

I switched from metal Link 7* to the A35 on my alto 10 years ago and have played it since. Man, this is one of the best HR's out there and the price is right too. Of course, there are some vintage ones you can't beat (Selmer Soloist, old Meyer etc), but for this price it's one of the best. Though I would not recommend this piece for beginners as it may be hard to control the tone- it's huge. As for me- I love it!!!

"sings like a bird"

I used to play on a hand made guardala king for alto and it was a great sound but I just couldn't handle the metal vibration on my teeth anymore and a mouthpiece patch darkened the sounds so I heard about this moutpiece from saxophonist Mike Phillips and its exactly as he said. it gives off a metal sound with the comfort of a hard rubber. so I've been playing on it for a year in a hlf now and i still love it. theres no other mouthpiece out there that compares to it. I used Vandoren Java for a while and it made it sing like a bird but when I switched to the Java filed reeds it sang like a Phoenix lol

"Loud and fat"

I bought this mouthpiece a while back. I have the A75 model, and it takes a good embouchure to get good sound out of it. Its open enough at the tip to really make some noise, but the best thing about that is that it sounds really terrific. Its very very bright, sometimes a bit too bright on the highest notes in the natural range. Altissimo works well for me on this piece, probably because of the mad bright overtones. I play lead alto in a big band and it serves me well when I need to lead the section. Articulation is easy and precise, projection is so good that the horn sounds amped. Intonation is on par with most of the better jazz mouthpieces. Really kicks with Alexander Superial reeds, but what doesn't? Does pretty well with Java reeds too. Too hard of a reed makes it more difficult to have a good dynamic range, but it can whisper and scream with a free-blowing reed like a Java or Superial. The only problem I've had with this piece is that it can get to chirping a lot if your reeds aren't just right or if you're weak in the lips from playing for a long time or from inexperience.

"Loud and Rich Sound"

I bought the Jumbo Java A45 about two to three years ago and it is by far the best mouthpiece I've ever had. It is as close to a metal mouthpiece as you can get without buying a metal mouthpiece, it has a large barrel with a open tip for a loud rich sound, then pairing it with Vandoren's ZZ Series Reeds (3)which are extremely flexible has given me a very smooth and rich sound. I highly recommend this product.
