Sepia Tone is the first model of the Gottsu Sepia Tone series. This model is the only Gottsu model that is made from a mold rather than carved out of a block of material. It is made with silicone rubber, a custom rubber composition mixed by Gottsu. The mouthpiece produces a bright tone and is easy to blow, so it is good for beginners.
This model is from before I decided to implement 5-axis machining center. I invented the material called silicone rubber to pursue vintage mouthpieces, and pursued easy blowing for this mouthpiece. I was planning to terminate the model when I introduced Sepia Tone VI. However, many people, especially beginners, love this model, so I continue to make it the same way.
