Sepia Tone VI Marble

The Sepia Tone VI Marble is the marbled version of the standard VI model.  It features a unique brownish-orange marbled pattern that swirls through the dark ebonite, as well as a 24k gold-plated brass ring.  Mixing the black and orange-colored hard rubber, as well as the addition of a brass ring to the shank, causes the mouthpiece to produce complex overtones.  The VI Marble has a focused sound and a slightly stronger sense of resistance (hesitation) in comparison to the Sepia Tone VI. 

I originally made this model simply to pursue the beauty of the mouthpiece; it did not cross my mind to introduce this mouthpiece as a Gottsu model. However, many professional saxophone artists tested and enjoyed it, and they wanted to have one of their own. Therefore, I decided to introduce it as a new Gottsu model. The design is the same as the Sepia Tone VI, but some changes have been made in order to accommodate the marbled material and brass ring.
