OVERVIEW

Helps you achieve that that "West Coast" vibe.

The Solstice harkens to the days of the "West Coast" school of sound, made famous by such greats as Paul Desmond, Art Pepper and Lee Konitz. The sounds and styles of these greats inspired the creation of this mouthpiece. The Solstice has a rich core and a full harmonic palate, while also possessing a lively and lyrical quality. There have been several modern attempts to approach the "West Coast" sound but the majority leave the player with a stuffy, dull and resistant piece. The Solstice plays open, full and with ease. Its responsive, ringing, centered tone provides a unique avenue towards expression and opens the door to new possibilities. As well as the "West Coast" vibe, the Solstice offers extreme levels of versatility and can easily hold its own in lead situations. From flowing bossa novas, to the jazz quartet standards, to a beautiful, lyrical, emotional ballad…the Solstice does it all.

FEATURES
  • Incredible versatility Popular "West Coast" vibe Sweet and powerful tone Handcrafted and play tested

    Comments about Phil-Tone Solstice Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

    I've been playing the Solstice for jazz and light pop for around 2 years. It is the best alto saxophone mouthpiece I've ever played. The Meyer and Meyer-style mouthpieces just don't work for me--and I tried a bunch. Phil-Tone recommended the Solstice, and my only worry now is that I don't have a back-up Solstice yet in case something happens to my mouthpiece. The Solstice can help you produce a beautiful tone, Desmond-esque, but can also project pretty well. Great for jazz combos, big band, even concert band/classical with the right reed.

      Comments about Phil-Tone Solstice Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      The Solstice is a fantastic mpc. It is amazing how it can capture the Desmond sound yet with a slightly lighter reed it can go in a different direction making it a really versatile mouthpiece. I've got a Solstice 6 and absolutely love it.

          Comments about Phil-Tone Solstice Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

          All of Phil's mouthpieces are great, so you don't have to worry about getting a bad one ( like Meyer, Otto Link, Dukoff) He makes them all by hand. I have this mouthpiece is size 6 (.076) and it's fantastic. If you like the Paul Desmond/Art Pepper/Lee Konitz... basically the West Coast sound, then this mouthpiece is your best bet. This mouthpiece puts out plenty of volume too, unlike other West Coast mouthpiece like MC Gregory. I wouldn't use this piece for rock or r&b, but it's an A+ for combo jazz and even classical music if you get a smaller tip opening. I like Rico Select Jazz 3s on my 6.
