Description

This exciting new tenor model features the essential design elements of a vintage HR Otto Link Slant with specially calibrated modifications for the modern saxophonist. The rollover baffle and floor delivery points have been specifically designed for optimal airflow and to create a beautifully balanced overtone series. 

This mouthpiece features a slight undercutting of the sidewalls and a medium or large chamber.

This is THE mouthpiece for jazz saxophonists looking for a vintage feel with a modern delivery.

"Son of Slant" is made from our specially engineered Hybrid Vintage Resin Material, which incorporates a small amount of ceramic into the resin, this enhances the acoustic resonance while also contributing a beautiful vintage aesthetic. 

Each mouthpiece includes the Aaron Drake Signature ligature, which has been specifically designed for this model.

"For me the Large chamber still has great projection, while pinning down a good general depth of field. This allows for a smooth transition into an even subtone that's very easy to control all the way down to Bb. A highly playable mouthpiece. Like the Medium chamber there is a wonderful vibrancy to the whole playing experience, allowing the player to control extremes of dynamics very easily."Jim@sax.co.uk
