BLUE A.R.T.

• The most advanced mouthpiece material ever.  Expensive, but worth it!

• It’s blue for a reason. The pigment resonates like mad, and just happens to be blue.

• Named Blue A.R.T because…well, it’s blue. A.R.T for Advanced Resonance Technology.

• Amazingly, it resonates far more than hard rubber; it gets more volume!

• Wash it in hot water and leave it out in the sun; Does not oxidise like hard rubber.

PREMIUM HARD RUBBER

• The incredible sound of vintage hard rubber is well known.

• Bad sounding plastics like Delrin, ABS etc. are inexpensive and common now.

• We use pure latex hard rubber though, tapped from real latex trees!

• See the difference. Real hard rubber sands tan!

FIBERROD

• Fiberrod by Harry Hartmann sounds almost identical to hard rubber, some say better!

• Does not oxidise, turn green or smell when left in the sun and heat like hard rubber.

• Developed by Harry Hartmann of Fiberreed to meet Theo’s highest specifications.

24K PURE GOLD

• We use real 24K pure gold for the best possible sound in your mouthpiece.

• We add a tiny amount of hardener so it will last a long time! It’s still 24K gold though!

rhodium

PURE RHODIUM

• Rhodium is a member of the platinum group.

• It is one of the rarest and most valuable precious metals.  It is expensive!

• It has a beautiful silver color, but is much more corrosion resistant, than silver.

• Our Mindi Abair Signature Mouthpiece is Rhodium plated.
