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.

    Excellent mouthpiece

    Posted by Joe on Feb 25th 2019

    The Florida HR tenor mouthpiece is a really great all-around mouthpiece. The tone is beautiful and can be made brighter or darker with different reed choices.. I found it to be reed friendly and was able to play very soft reeds and very hard reeds on it. It's super comfortable to play and the sound remains consistent from the low end of the horn into the altissimo. Great work, Ted!

    Ted Klum Florida HR

    Posted by Brandt G Peterson on Feb 22nd 2019

    I purchased this mouthpiece based on my positive experience with a TK FocusTone Precision tenor piece, which I bought used, and which put an end to more than a year of searching for the right modern metal Link-type piece. The Florida HR shares the characteristics that make the FocusTone such a keeper: it's really even throughout all registers, is very responsive and easy to play, and it's very reed-friendly. The table, tip, and rails all look perfect, and it plays as though that's the case, too. TheFlorida produces what I think of as a really nice classic tenor sound. It's got a nice balance of warmth with a little brightness that, to me, makes for a core sound I think of as "sweet." It is flexible, offering plenty of color without stepping on the sound of the horn/player combo (again, classic tenor piece). It's not tons different than the FocusTone, still focused but maybe a bit more spread and, to my ears, a little richer and sweeter at the core. I'm very happy with it, and for me it is a good value at this price.

    The Florida Hard Rubber Tenor is in my opinion just an outstanding mouthpiece.I like the cut down Beak and the response is just fantastic. A beautifully crafted mouthpiece with Ted's trade mark tip rail workmanship.
