Overview

The EBO mouthpieces are the further evolution of Peter Ponzol' hard rubber traditional and vintage mouthpieces of the past 20 years. Ponzol began refacing mouthpieces when he lived in New York during the 70s. Many of his first customers were friends who were well-known players, and whose names are legends today. He kept a book of the dimensions of their mouthpieces before and after he worked on them. For example, one day Pharaoh Sanders showed up at his W. 54th St apartment with two shopping bags full of mouthpieces. Most had belonged to Trane and Eric Dolphy. All of these dimensions were written down in his book.

In 1980 he moved to Europe and lived in many places before settling down in Germany. He had boxes of stuff in Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, etc. The box with this book got misplaced for many years and only recently turned up while looking for something else. No one has the mouthpiece dimensions that he has. While he had many of these dimensions in his head, there are many special facings in his notebook that he had forgotten.

Ponzol has found a common denominator in all the great playing hard rubber mouthpieces he measured and worked on and has used these to make this new version of his Ebonite mouthpieces. The material is the highest grade German Ebonite. You will be amazed at how these mouthpieces play and respond. In keeping with his concept that there are only one or two tip openings that have the magic relationship to the chamber design, the EBO Alto is available in a 75 opening and the EBO Tenor in a 105 opening.
