Ponzol Vintage Model Aluminum 105 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece (NOS)
Back in 2015, the Ponzol Company packed up some boxes of mouthpieces, put them in storage and forgot about them. We recently found these and are offering them at a discount. These are New Old Stock mouthpieces that had never been sold. These are brand new mouthpieces and we will include a ligature and cap. There is no packaging.
Peter Ponzol Aluminum Vintage Model Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece. This model is precision machined from aluminum, hand-faced, and anodized for a beautiful gold color finish. The Vintage Model features a larger chamber with lower baffle for a darker core tone with some edge. It is the darkest of the Ponzol mouthpiece models. The aluminum models have a lighter and sweeter tone than the stainless models.
Peter Ponzol has always been concerned about mouthpiece materials and how safe they are for a player to put in their mouth. Most metal mouthpieces on the market are made of brass or bronze alloys. Because these alloys can have any number of various metals and materials in the metal, they may not be safe use unless properly plated. Chemicals used during the plating process are also not safe. As the plating wears on a mouthpiece, the player may be exposed to unsafe metals or metals they may be allergic to.
This model is made from aluminum and the surface is anodized. This is a similar material and process used on high-end cookware. It is a durable and lightweight mouthpiece.
Tip opening measures .105. Includes a Rovner Star Series ligature and cap.
