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.

Powerfull mouthpiece
rjacorreia, 18.12.2019
This is an easy playing and beautiful mouthpiece with a lot of power. It has a bright sound suitable for pop rock gigs. I wouldn't choose it for jazz nor classical.

Gutes Mundstück mit gewissen Schwierigkeiten
FabioD, 02.06.2012
Ich habe das Mundstück jetz seit ca einem halben Jahr, und kann von mäßiger Zufriedenheit sprechen.

Mängel:
Nr. 1: Das größte Problem, welches ich mit dem Mundstück habe ist die Blattunfreundlichkeit. Wenn ich z.B. 5 Stück neue Blätter probiere kommt es immer vor das ca 2-3 auf diesem Mundstück unspielbar sind, was mit der Zeit sehr teuer kommt und sehr nervt.

Nr. 2: Die Wölbung des Einlaufs ist nicht entsprechend dem originalen MB II. Ich habe es einmal mit einem original von Dave Guardala handgemachtem Brecker II verglichen & der Innenraum sieht komplett anders aus, was auch zu klanglichen Unterschieden führt. Das original hat viel mehr Focus im Sound. Das Handmade MB II von PMS Music ist jedoch wieder identisch mit dem von Guardala.

Hat man jedoch ein gutes Blatt gefunden & auch eine Weile auf dem Mundstück geübt, da es Anfangs sehr schwer zu kontrollieren ist, macht es richtig Spaß. Man hat einen lauten, durchsetzungsfähigen brillianten Sound. Ich werde das Mundstück einem Refacing unterziehen, um die Blattfreundlichkeit zu verbessern.

Im großen & ganzen ein gelungenes Mundstück mit kleinen Mängeln. Wenn ich mich nochmal entscheiden müsste würde ich aber lieber ein paar Euro mehr ausgeben & dafür das handmade Modell kaufen.

On s'y croirait !
SebioJazz, 02.10.2012
Il est idéal pour envoyer du son, puissance et clarté sont au rendez-vous.
La finition est très bien, le bec respecte le son original de Mike et après c'est à vous de faire le reste !
Mais sachez tout de même que Michael Brecker, ce Grand Monsieur restera à jamais irremplaçable !!! RIP
