Today is April 6th and it is the Birthday of Gerry Mulligan. Today is a great day to give an unofficial glimpse of our new mouthpiece for baritone saxophone. This is just a preview of the prototype from phone pictures of progress from our craftsmen. Official information and photos will be out when production starts later this Spring.

Morgan Mouthpiece Company will start production on this model this Spring. We will use this mold with our pure rubber formula. These will be handcrafted to perfection by some of the most experienced mouthpiece craftsmen in the world. If you are a fan of M.C. Gregory baritone saxophone mouthpieces, this will certainly be one to try. More information and photos to come in later this Spring.
