Product Overview

The New Ted Klum Florida Model Hard Rubber Tenor is based on the core geometry of several of his most favorite vintage, O.L., Tone Edge pieces.

Machined from the finest, German Ebonite and hand-finished in Little Falls NJ, this medium chamber design provides the tight, powerful, projection that so many greats have employed over the years. It is even throughout the registers and has a fine balance of brightness and warmth making it suitable for many types of playing. 

This model has instantly become one of our top selling pieces and is available in the classic Black (most vibrant) as well as Black/Green or Black/Red marbled (slightly warmer) ebonite. 

Each one is hand-finished and signed, sand blasted and polished on the outside and comes with a cap and ligature.

Typically ships in 3-5 business days.

    I got the Tenor Florida HR model blue marbled. Best mouthpiece I’ve ever played. Great craftsmanship. I will order some more in the future!

    Sound and response

    I got this mouthpiece knowing TK was a master mouthpiece guy. I wanted to recapture the vibe I once had on a HR link. This piece is as close to it that I can recall. I think he nailed it. It has the classic vintage hard rubber sound but I can do my thing on it and it responds!

    There’s something about playing a mouthpiece that when you look at it and play it, you know the geometry is absolutely perfect. My bottom end sounds great and the palms sound as full as I’ve ever heard them. Thank you Ted! This amateur player salutes you for your commitment to your craft.

    Florida Model Hard Rubber Tenor 7

    Posted by Gary Robertz on Sep 1st 2020

    I received my Florida tenor hard rubber mouthpiece about a week ago, and it has been exactly what I was hoping for and more. I’m not a big-shot musician with a famous reputation, but I’ve played sax for 50+ years, and this mouthpiece is outstanding. I was immediately impressed with the consistency of response across all registers. The tone is just what I want to sound like, and I find that I can change the sound by varying the reed or adjusting my embouchure and voicing. Right now I’m working on developing my altissimo range (geezers can learn new tricks too), and I’m making a lot of progress with this mouthpiece. I’m having so much fun playing it - it’s hard to put down. Thanks for the great product!

    Ted, I have four different models of tenor pieces from you that all play wonderful. This Florida model is so on point That I am truly without words. The best I can put it is that I can’t put the mouthpiece down, it plays that well. Thank you for perfecting your craft, it has truly brought joy to my life.

    Florida model 7*

    Posted by John Zangrando on Mar 6th 2020

    I have been playing professionally for many decades this mouthpiece is just a ton of fun to play. Brighter reeds like a LaVoz med hard. Let me play pop or r&b or straight ahead. Put on a Boston sax shop 3 and play post bop and standards. Reed flexible. Fat sounding palm keys, effortless non tubby bottom, Just a great tenor mouthpiece.

    The best link IÕve ever played. Thanks! Looking forward to getting a tonamax. Klum pieces really are the best. Excellent efficiency with just the right resistance to shape the tone. Very fun to play!

    Florida #8 hard rubber tenor sax

    Posted by Arthur Camacho on Jun 25th 2019

    Hello, I am extremely happy with this mouthpiece. It is easy blowing for a rich sound. So far it is the best mouthpiece I have come across. Usually I have found mouthpieces great on certain occasions but this one is for all occasions. I started out on clarinet and studied with Manuel Valero from the BSO. He had a unbelievable sound which I strived for. I got close but the "popping " sound was difficult to achieve on the tenor. This mouthpiece is making that goal reachable. Highly recommend this mouthpiece. I've spent much more money on others that don't come close to the Florida model. Artie camacho

    Florida Model HR

    Posted by Ray Javier on May 26th 2019

    After what seemed like an endless search I am now excited to pick up the tenor sax and now let the other horns get some rest. This mouthpiece did not let me down as many others have. It easy to blow, provides a warm robust sound, and is not afraid to scream when the time is right
