Product Overview

The Ted Klum “New York Model Alto Mouthpieces”, made from the finest German ebonite (hard rubber) and hand finished, these mouthpieces are the newest addition to our line of alto pieces and are created from CAD design that was based on Ted’s personal vintage “Fat Boy” Meyer Bros. from the 1950’s. 

Ted’s design is not simply a copy but another proprietary design that stands shoulder to shoulder to with the best vintage designs. Suffice it to say the first few prototypes have greatly exceeded our expectations and have been described as tonally rich, balanced and flexible with plenty of power and projection.

Now available -- special order -- a larger chamber New York model with sterling silver tone ring! We have a limited number of these possessing a wider and larger chamber with slightly more scooped side-walls. They have a deeper, fuller more Tenor-like tone while still retaining power and protection. Be sure to select "larger chamber" and "sterling silver tone ring" before adding to your cart!
**NOTE** The larger chamber model is only available in black.

Optionally includes a solid silver tone ring which is pressure fit to the mouthpiece so it can be removed off and on.

Fulfillment of this model is usually 3-5 business days.

    Ted was very helpful in recommending a mouthpiece and tip opening that would work best for what I was wanting to accomplish. The order was fulfilled quickly, it has the rich sound that I was hoping for and is finished to perfection. I ordered a marbled blue ebonite with a silver ring and it's an absolutely striking piece of craftsmanship.

    This mouthpiece is a work of art. Unbelievable responsiveness, dynamics, depth of colour, and soul -- this timeless piece has ended my mouthpiece search. Eloquent descriptors aside -- this mouthpiece is just plain fun to play! It is inspiring to play a mouthpiece that is so easy to play and enables me to fully express myself. Congratulations Ted on such a magnificent feat!

    The New London Gold tenor mouthpiece has been a major find for me... nothing comes close. So I decided to order Ted’s NY Model Alto piece. It just came and I must say that I’ve never been happier! UNBELIEVABLE!! I’ve been playing an early 1970s HR Meyer 7M that was customized for me by Frank Wells in ‘77 when I was on the road with Buddy Morrow. That mouthpiece set such a high standard for me that I have never been happier with anything else. . . Until today! My god, TED YOU ARE THE MAN!

    Best alto MPC (for me) I have used so far. Can actually hit some altissimo notes with this that were too difficult on Alto for me with other MPCs.

    Ted has struck the perfect balance between response and efficiency, balance of colour and flexibility. This is the new standard in modern alto mouthpieces and without doubt the best alto mouthpiece I've played, new or vintage.
