Super Classic I 360 TAM Alto Sax Mouthpiece is similar in design and sound as the original SC I. It's precision machined, produced utilizing TAM technology. It's 18kt Heavy Gold Plated and offers players a dynamic centered sound
Designed by master artisan and mouthpiece model maker Gary Sugal, the SC I360 TAM alto mouthpiece is slightly darker than Sugal’s SC II but, versatile enough to be used by today's saxophonist who plays straight-ahead jazz and is now available at an affordable price.
The Super Classic 360 TAM has been designed via a Technologically Advanced Methodology (TAM) and is built around technologically advanced molding, that deliver advanced prototyping parts. The results are a fine crisp smooth flat surface finish and outstanding resonance along with close tolerances.
The Super Classic I 360 TAM utilizes Sugal’s proprietary copper metal formulation (94% pure copper body) to resonate without sounding gritty or nasal.
Although the technology used to create the mouthpiece is dramatically different than CNC machining the results have proven to be delightful. This model is perfectly suited for all levels of musicianship and as noted above is available at unusually competitive pricing.
Sugal now laser enhances the side, tip rails and body of all his mouthpieces. The Sugal Super Classic I 360 TAM features Sugal’s famous parallel refined mini–tracks allowing the metal to breathe or expand for spot on intonation and maximum resonation.
The Sugal Super Classic I 360 TAM mouthpiece has a rich, bright, powerful, centered sound with lots of bite when called upon.
It also features a medium to large chamber with a machined raised roll-over snow-hill styled baffle allowing for a solid full-bodied focused cutting centered sound. Aspiring musicians, young and old, will find this mouthpiece to be totally free blowing.
Reminiscent of the great Cannonball bop alto sound, the Super Classic I 360 TAM has an ease of playability and attains the altissimo register with ease.
Players will find that the overall dynamics and blend of Sugal's preparatory natural copper material eliminates that brittle, nasal resonance found in most competitive models.
