Welcome to the Family!
Saxophonists who endorse Corry Bros mouthpieces:
"Loving my P-Wave Bari mouthpiece! I had been after a vintage mouthpiece for so long but to no avail and had got my heart set on a metal piece, however, the P-Wave ebonite gives all of the brightness and depth I had been after.They are free blowing in all registers and very comfortable to play due to the slimline shape. The full dynamic range is extremely easy to achieve as are altissimo and effects whilst providing an awesome full and rich tone.
The Corry Brothers have set a benchmark for the modern mouthpiece whilst keeping all of the qualities of a vintage bespoke piece."
