Sepia Tone Jazz Metal

The Sepia Tone Jazz Metal is Gottsu’s standard metal model. It is crafted from Gottsu’s vintage brass and plated with silver.  The Jazz Metal features a moderately bright, fat and edgy tone with good projection.


After making the Sepia Tone VI, an ebonite mouthpiece, I wanted to make a metal model. Because I play Tenor Saxophone, I own vintage metal mouthpieces, so I wanted to make a better mouthpiece than the vintage ones. That was how I started to make Jazz Metal.
