In my last travel to the R&C factory, I had the chance to try also the new production of R&C-Maurino mouthpieces for baritone saxophone. Those MPC are inspired by the renowned Otto Link Slant signature from the ’50, so big large chamber mpc, round sidewalls and a horseshoe rollover on the tip. I had the chance to compare the R&C-Maurino with my old mouthpiece, that (by case) is a Slant Sig 9* completely original and that plays with a fat and robust tone. I was impressed by the sound quality of the R&C-Maurino that preserve the original feeling and tone response but with more complexity on the sound. In conclusion I’m really thinking to sell my old Slant (see next posts).
I take this opportunity also to notice that those beautiful MPCs are available in all R&C retailers.
