Sepia Tone VI Custom

Sepia Tone VI Custom is the high baffle version of the Sepia Tone VI.  It produces a brighter and larger sound than the VI, and is designed to make more sound with little blowing. This mouthpiece is good for fusion style jazz or for people who have a metal allergy but want to have a powerful sound like with a metal mouthpiece.   


I received many requests to make a mouthpiece from hard rubber that has a high baffle, especially from professional saxophone players.  I was also curious to make a metal-styled mouthpiece from hard rubber, so I began making the Sepia Tone VI Custom.  The Baritone model has a long-shank, thicker tip-rail and side-rail and bigger body than the Sepia Tone VI.  I designed the Tenor model from scratch; it is high-baffle but has a larger chamber, so it is easy to produce low notes. The Alto model’s design is the same as the Metal HL2018, but I changed the program slightly and thickened the side-rail in order to accommodate the material.
