The Hoss for Tenor Sax
This is the new Saxquest Hoss mouthpiece for tenor saxophone. The Hoss was designed in the spirit of the  slant duck bill Berg that we have had in the shop. 
 
The construction of the Hoss showcases straight side walls and a wide open medium/large inner throat. Leading away from the inner throat there is a classic “Bullet Chamber” configuration which shapes its way into the steady angle of the mouthpiece’s floor and baffle area. The combination of the chamber and floor shape allows air to move through the piece with a lot of speed and efficiency. If you are looking for plenty of projection and power when desired you will quickly fall in love with the Hoss. It can play with a sensitive warm character or can easily achieve all the awesome nastiness you need. Due to its flexibility this mouthpiece works great for solo players in a big band as well as work in rock and R&B groups.  
 
Like our other mouthpieces the Hoss was  manufactured in collaboration with mouthpiece maker Eric Falcon. It is made from ultra-premium solid German bar stock hard rubber. It is turned on a CNC controlled high precision lathe and then milled on an absolute state of the art 5-axis vertical mill. Shaping of the throat, baffle & tip rail; profiling of the chamber; under-cutting of the side walls, and cutting of the window is all accomplished using three strokes per pass. This results in fabulously tight tolerances which leads to incredible consistency from piece to piece. All mouthpieces are then hand finished by Eric Falcon.
