“We saxophone players spend a lot of time in pursuit of a “voice” on the instrument. We spend a lot of time dissecting the unique voices of the great masters and emulating them trying to unlock their magic and absorb a bit for ourselves. Then we move on to finding our own, unique voice.
The ultimate pursuit in the great hunt for THE ONE mouthpiece that fits you is to find a mouthpiece that allows your “inner sound” – the sound you hear in your head when you think in saxophone – to come forth with effortless ease. I’ve owned and played some fantastic mouthpieces throughout my career. But withAaron’s “Stubbie”, I feel I’ve found the mouthpiece that wasmade for my voice. I’m attaining MY sound, without compromise. With effortless response and a wonderful depth of nuance and array of color; from post-bop to funk and soul, I just love the way this mouthpiece plays.
Find your voice, too. Play a Drake…”
