Russ PaladinoI'm very excited to share news that my friend and mouthpiece genius, Rafael Navarro, has now opened his website for business.
I cannot speak high enough praise for his work....but don't take my word for it....take the word of Wayne Shorter, Bob Mintzer... moreI'm very excited to share news that my friend and mouthpiece genius, Rafael Navarro, has now opened his website for business.
I cannot speak high enough praise for his work....but don't take my word for it....take the word of Wayne Shorter, Bob Mintzer, Bob Franceschini, Walt Weiskopf, Joel Frahm among others.... all of whom are endorsing his new line of tenor mouthpieces. I encourage players to go to his website and learn about these beautiful mouthpieces.
Personally, I have been fortunate enough to be playing a Custom Bahia 10* hard rubber for about a year now, and it's is far and away the best piece I've ever played. I've played every major and boutique brand along the way. I also play a Metal Bahia 9* which is incredible as well....So much so that it was difficult to decide which to play, so I play either interchangeably, depending upon how I feel. less
