Saxscape mouthpieces are designed to maximize your expression,

About the Prototypes
3/25/12: About the prototypes: Prototypes were a way for me to make adjustments
to the machining process, without spending the time in doing a lot of finish
hand work. I only made tenor prototypes in .102 sizes and a limited
set of models (Slant, Downtown, Hudson, Fat Cat, and Xtra Dark). I
fully finish and check all other models and sizes for quality in hand finishing
and extra polishing. I should be finished with selling prototypes by the end
of April. After that, there may still be b-stock pieces with blemishes, but
the plan is to only sell the fully finished pieces, at full retail price, of
course with a wider selection. I will be selling
through brick-and-mortar shops in a few months where you can go in and test
the piece before purchasing. It's been my way of optimizing my systems and still
making some pieces available for sale.
The prototypes have a plain shank, whereas the finished pieces have the Saxscape
logo on a ring on the shank as in the photo above.
To everyone who's bought a prototype or b-stock on eBay -- you've gotten a
hell of a deal!
