'Desert Island Mouthpiece' (like Desert island discs) but without the discs, and yes your sax would already be there.

If you had one only mouthpiece to take to a desert island....which one would you take, And why?

Jody Jazz HR because it is pretty flexible for me . . . and I assume the desert Island is likely to be hot so I wouldn't want a metal piece :)

Pillinger NYT for the same reason. It would allow me to mess around with indigenous reeds.

Hmmm.........(tricky!) I suppose it would depend upon whether I was playing my alto, tenor, bari or C-Melody.... Okay, we'll say it's my alto. Meyer 6M. It is the one mpc that actually works with my set-up!

Any, as long as it's metal so I can chop down trees, make animal traps, skin caught animals and then use its reflective qualities to signal to passing ships and planes!


Simples!

a stainless steel Lawton 9*BB so I could be heard by passing ships... and they could steer well clear of me..

My Otto Link Super Tonemaster. It's a 10 opening, been refaced, had the chamber opened out a bit and has a huge wedge baffle. Plays like no other Link. In fact, it plays like no other mouthpiece. Huge sound, loud and bright. Love it.

Perhaps you could sit in it and paddle to the mainland!

Does it still play like a saxophone or is simply useful for attracting passing ships? I am not sure wedge baffles are legal anymore.
I personally blow a Link 11 (Spinal Tap model) but it is too tiring for the desert island.

I'd pinch Gary Barnacle's Guardala (Super?) King that he's had opened up to about a yard. Loudest thing I've ever blown - by quite a long way. Hailing passing ships would be a doddle.

Rovner Deep-V. I like them a lot. BTW; John Laughter has one for sale right now and I'm really tempted to try to buy it. It's a #11 and my current Rovner is #8. A big step!?!?! That's why my hesitation.

Only if it's the inflatable model.

I'd take my Phil-Tone Aurora Alto mpc cos it just sounds right and would encourage the local natives to arrange my transportation tomainland USA so that I could arrange a shipment of mpc's to the local islands!

Natives on a desert island?
Any good repairer among them?

This is getting out of hand! You are exploiting the natives already! Introducing capitalism to this innocent, beautiful island. I must set down the rules, rule # 1. There are No natives on this island, just you (in a loin cloth with your chosen mouthpiece and your instrument in your hand) I will update/make-up rules as we go along and when they are broken.

Can you please make up rules involving uncomfortable keys (concert E)?
And are we sure we don't find ourselves trying to play a curved soprano with a baritone mouthpiece?

I'll still take the Phil-Tone Aurora mpc but just keep the secret of its quality to myself.............As Chris Huhne would say - "... it was my wife that suggested mentioning the mouthpiece to the local natives..." ;}
