Before you buy your next mouthpiece, ask this question. Is the maker a player and is every mouthpiece play tested? I also use CNC machines in my production, but don't let anyone tell you that the mouthpieces come off the machine ready to play. It's just not true! I play test every mouthpiece and make the final adjustments by hand to insure that each mouthpiece plays as intended. Who should find the mouthpieces that aren't quite ready, the maker or you?
All Ponzol mouthpieces are designed, finished and tested by Peter Ponzol. Every metal and Custom mouthpiece comes with a Rovner ligature and cap.
INTRODUCING THE NEW SILVER LINE MOUTHPIECES:
In keeping with my goal of making mouthpieces that not only play well, but that are made from safe, food grade materials, I am pleased to introduce this new line of inexpensive Ponzol mouthpieces. These are the replacements for the hard rubber Vintage line. Made from a high quality synthetic material. At the moment there are the following models available:
ALTO C* (Square chamber model)
ALTO 5 (Meyer style)
TENOR 5* (Link Style)
These mouthpieces come with a standard ligature and cap. By keeping the amount of openings to a minimum, I am able to offer these at the amazing list price of $95.00.
The new stainless steel soprano mouthpiece is now available in the 65 opening. A photo will be up soon. Suffice it to say that it looks just like a smaller version of the alto mouthpiece. Powerful and warm.
The new stainless steel baritone is now available in the 110 plus opening. A photo will be up soon. Suffice it to say that it looks just like a larger version of the tenor. A new design with a chamber between the old M1 and M2 models. Full robust sound with warmth and power.
It's very difficult to put into words what a mouthpiece sounds and plays like. The only way to know what works for you is to try it. The M2 Plus is the brightest of my mouthpieces, and the Vintage the darkest. Yet I've had players tell me that they found the M2 dark and the other models bright. Since these are very subjective terms please don't be afraid to try different models.
