This is a MP that I will be having delivered from the US in the near future, and would like to get an opinion what is a fair price for this piece, as I will be selling it on.
Thanks in Advance.


Saxscape SL "Slant" .102 (7) Tenor Sax Mouthpiece, Serial Number 1865, HR profile, Delrin, B-Stoc
Saxscape is making available some prototype, used, and b-stock pieces that were in the shop but are different from the Pro Series pieces that will be available thru my website at www.saxscape.com. They have been fully play-tested for quality, but may have cosmetic blemishes or other markings. Most prototype pieces have more hand work than usual since they were used to arrive at the concepts for the other pieces, and each one is guaranteed to have its own unique sound and response.
This piece is inspired by the Otto Link Slant Signature and the Freddie Gregory Mark II mouthpieces. It has a fairly high rollover, scooped sidewalls, and medium chamber. The Saxscape SL is a very flexible piece, combining great tone, evenness, power, projection, quickness, great altissimo, and precise intonation.
About Delrin:
FDA appproved for food contact -- no health concerns about epoxy baffles or metal plating
Chemically very stable
Extremely durable
Used successfully in the highly regarded Lamberson mouthpieces

These are excellent value pieces, I have an XtraDark prototype. I have 2 pieces that I use on my 10M a Theo Wanne Brahma which is easy to play and very versatile, ideal in band situations, but when I want to play for myself I always choose the Saxscape, I paid £70 for mine, worth every penny.

I can't wait to try the saxscape, it sounds interesting. I have a JJ.DVNY #7 also coming from the states, which I hope to use to replace the #8* JJ. I am using at the moment. Also 2 10Ms a 48 and a 58 so I'll be selling on the 58 10M and the MPs I don't need, but I may finish up keeping the Saxscape. I should have them in a couple of weeks.:thumb:

I have communicated with Ken Barry (who makes Saxscape mouthpieces) several times - he is a top man and I am amazed at the quality of mouthpiece that he produces. I have tried most of his Tenor output apart from the Slant, Naima and Fat Cat - the Link inspired pieces. It is just that Phil Engleman's pieces have a unique quality to them where it feels he is breaking new ground apart from the Tribute that he produced collaboratively with Theo Wanne. Especially the Delrin seems to have the advantages of Hard Rubber but none of the disadvantages - excellent tone, very resonant, and much tougher to boot.
