Product Details

The Johannes Gerber VINTAGE SLANT tenor saxophone mouthpiece is modeled after the classic 1950’s tenor sound. The sound is characterized as warm and rich in harmonic content - darker but lively - true and transparent. While many of the vintage pieces of the past play very well, they are also known to be inconsistent - they were finished by different craftsmen at the factory and the internal and external dimensions changed from time to time - no two are the same, and it's becoming harder and harder to find a good one in original condition.

Johannes Gerber compiled a database of vintage mouthpiece's measurements over many years and used the data from his favorite mouthpieces during the conception of the Vintage Slant.

The medium-large chamber is finished with beautifully sculpted concave side-walls and a medium ‘New York’ era roll-over baffle, resulting in an evenly balanced sound through the range of the saxophone. Projection and power are excellent for this type of design and the precisely finished facing and rails facilitate fast articulation and control.

Several saxophonists ordered the Gerber VINTAGE SLANT as a backup to their original 'slants' and ended up liking it more. Some described it as the perfect substitute for their ‘No USA’ slant Links.

Craftsmanship bar none: Johannes Gerber is world renowned as a true master craftsman of saxophone mouthpieces. We have measured and inspected some of the most expensive saxophone mouthpieces in today's marketplace and have found none that compare to Gerber's accuracy, consistency, and perfect finishing - what you see in the photos is what your mouthpiece will look, and play like.

Material: We have developed a modern equivalent for the famous 'vintage hard rubber' from the 1950's, with properties closely related to the material used for the vintage Otto Link and Meyer mouthpieces from from the past. Follow the TECH link for more information.
