Phil-Tone Solstice Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece (.076) (NEW)
FREE SHIPPING AVAILABLE IN THE US.
The Solstice is a great alternative to a Meyer setup. It has unparalleled versatility, a beautiful sonorous tone but can deliver attitude when pushed. There is no piece better to deliver the West Coast Vibe.. but the Solstice does not stop there.
A solstice signals the change in the seasons, just as this mouthpiece marks a departure from the traditional jazz alto setup. The Solstice harkens to the days of the ”West Coast” school of sound, made famous by such greats as Art Pepper, Lee Konitz, and Paul Desmond. The sounds and styles of these greats inspired the creation of this mouthpiece. The Solstice has a rich core and a full harmonic palate, while also possessing a lively and lyrical quality. There have been several modern attempts to approach the West Coast sound but the majority leave the player with a stuffy, dull, and resistant piece. The Solstice plays open, full, and with ease. Its ringing, centered tone provides a unique avenue towards expression and opens the door to new possibilities. From flowing bossa novas, to the jazz quartet standards, to a beautiful, lyrical, emotional ballad…the Solstice does it all.
Played “Straight ahead” The Solstice accepts a strong airstream and projects extremely well. Its time to step away from the Meyer and its countless clones. Explore a new level of depth and color with the most versatile alto mouthpiece available at any price.
