  • 1. “I have seen and spoken to many players who enjoy playing on the various model Dave Guardala mouthpieces, and I have seen a few of the vintage Dave Guardala MB1’s sell on Ebay for well over $1000 dollars. I had a chance this year to meet Nadir Ibrahimoglu, who besides owning a very successful music shop in Europe, has been crafting and refining the Guardala mouthpieces. Nadir offers mouthpieces called the “Dave Guardala Reborn”, as well as his own line of mouthpieces under his name. Although I traditionally enjoy playing on a hard rubber or metal link, I wanted to see how Nadir’s mouthpieces played. Nadir offers such models as the Crescent, MB II, BM, and FAT BOY MBII – each with their own tonal characteristics. Original: http://www.bestsaxophonewebsiteever.com/namm-2015-saxophone- roundup-2/#sthash.B9F0PZRm.dpuf After speaking with Nadir, he told me to check out one of the mouthpieces that will be released soon. The piece Nadir gave me I believe was a FATBOY, but with a different facing. Although I prefer hard rubber mouthpieces, this mouthpiece was incredibly free blowing, took very little air to gain a full sound, and was easy to articulate. While playing through the horn chromatically, the mouthpiece offered an even scale, which was appealing since I find some metal mouthpieces tend to either get too bright or thin when you start playing in the palm keys. This was not the case with Nadir’s mouthpieces. Overall, I can see that Nadir takes his work very seriously and will not display or offer a mouthpiece that is not playing up to his standards. If you are a “Guardala-holic”, and are looking to find the right model for you, check out some of Nadir’s mouthpieces, and I am sure you will find what you are looking for.”
