The balance of carefully designed and produced dimensions and facings gives HITE mouthpieces their extreme flexibility, superior intonation patterns and comfort through out the entire range of the instrument, at all dynamic levels. J&D Hite professional model mouthpieces are made of top quality hard rubber and are personally hand-finished and tested to ensure consistency and playability. Our baritone mouthpiece is recommended for a variety of playing situations: concert and stage bands, sax quartets, studios and show orchestras. It has a flat, modestly raised baffle. The table is angled in such a way that the tip of the reed is centered on the bore of the mouthpiece. This improved design gives the bari a rich lean sound rather than the old style spread, heavy tone. Both high and low registers are enhanced, and tonal flexibility is facilitated.
