Possibly the best "All Purpose" mouthpiece around!!!

Saxmadness, 19.02.2016
Let's be honest, if you're looking for Guardala MPC's chances are you're coming from the 80's (until now) side of Jazz, unmistakably Michael Brecker and/or Branford Marsalis and so on... You're looking for an edge (whether on the dark or bright spectrum of sound) not easily obtainable by chance or from many brands out there. You like metal MPC's but many are scared by Dukoff (i personally played them for almost 30 years now and i love'em) and not totally satisfied by the rounded sound of OttoLink... Well, this is definitely the way you want to go! The idea of putting the "Studio" and "MB" together really gives this MPC something that both puts you at ease in terms of resistance, sound projection, quality and "Cut through" when soloing. The material is incredible and though the inside features are quite unusual, the sound speaks for itself. The response and attack are just incredible, everything is so well defined. Quick passages are heard note by note now! Last concerts with Mike Stern proved me right as by the time i had to "come out", effortlessly, intentions just came alive. So far i played with Java Red #2 and Rico SJ #2 Medium and Olegature ligature. My sound was always (between various instruments) a mix of Sanborn/Marienthal/Brecker but this MPC let me play WAY more than that. If you think about an MPS Guardala, stop thinking. Grab it and enjoy yourself more than you were used to!!! Cheers, Sam.

Good mouthpiece with certain difficulties

FabioD, 02.06.2012
I have the mouth now for about half a year, and can speak of moderate satisfaction.

Defects:
No. 1: The biggest problem I have with the mouthpiece is the leaf unfriendliness. If I eg 5 pieces new leaves try it comes always before the ca 2-3 on this mouthpiece are playable, which comes with the time very expensive and very annoying.

No. 2: The buckle of the inlet is not according to the original MB II. I once compared it with an original Dave Guardala handmade Brecker II & the interior looks completely different, which also leads to sound differences. The original has a lot more focus in the sound. The Handmade MB II by PMS Music is, however, the same as Guardala's.

However, if you have found a good sheet & practiced for a while on the mouth, since it is very difficult to control at first, it is really fun. You have a loud, powerful brilliant sound. I will subject the mouthpiece to a refacing to improve the leaf-friendliness.

On the whole a successful mouthpiece with small defects. If I had to decide again, I would rather spend a few more Euro & buy the handmade model.
