Sepia Tone VI Marble

The Sepia Tone VI Marble features a brownish-orange marbled pattern that swirls through the dark ebonite, as well as an 18k gold-plated brass ring.  The material is a custom-made hard rubber, so each mouthpiece has a different marble pattern.  Mixing the black and orange-colored hard rubber 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I originally made this model simply to pursue the beauty of the mouthpiece; it did not cross my mind to introduce this mouthpiece as a Gottsu model.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 new Gottsu model. The design is the same as Sepia Tone VI, but there are some changes have been made in order to accommodate the marbled material, as well as the addition of a brass ring.
