TED KLUM HANDCRAFTED FOCUSTONE TENOR SAX MOUTHPIECE
The FocusTone Handcrafted line represents the culmination of 30 years of experience as a mouthpiece craftsman and is available in Brass, Bronze and Sterling Silver. The current generation features a slightly larger chamber than the classic med-large chamber mouthpieces of the past but maintains a specific baffle length and profile in order retain the focus, and ‘grab’ that Ted Klum has come to be known for.
Every aspect of these lovingly created mouthpieces is done by hand from one piece Lost Wax castings from Ted’s own proprietary CAD design. Considerable time is spent making sure the fit and finish of each FocusTone is perfect and up to the playing standards of Ted himself: no small thing for those who are familiar with Ted’s reputation.
The customer has the option of three materials, each providing subtle nuances in terms of response and color. Brass tends to be more lively, whereas bronze has a slightly darker resonance which many players also desire. Solid Sterling commands a higher price which many of our customers tell us is their favorite due to the presence of more upper partials in the tone.
