Update: The Bill Evans Signature Tenor Sax Mouthpiece

Mouthpiece fans, even though we are still working on it, we are closer than ever to getting the first prototype copy of the “Bill Evans Signature” tenor sax mouthpiece finished. It really plays great, feels and sounds like my mouthpiece. We’ve been working on this for over a year, it’s incredibly exciting. I have never played a mouthpiece that plays as good as mine, EVER, and I’m not going to release one that isn’t exactly like mine; we’re almost there. We are working on the logo, packaging etc. A lot of things go into making a mouthpiece, but let me assure you, the BES (Bill Evans Signature) will blow everything else out of the park. This I know. I’ve tried everything else! :)

Hi Bill

I love your sound and intonation !!

You always sound right on pitch

What are some good tuning exercises to keep the tenor centered

Hi Ed,
keep your embochure loose, and do some long tones starting at the bottom of the horn to the very top , being very conscious of your sound. Try to keep each note the same volume and in tune by listening to the previous note. All the best ! Bill
