FJ-IV - Limitless Expression
The FJ-IV by MACSAX was designed for today's contemporary saxophonist. The contemporary music scene poses a unique challenge to saxophonists: they need powerful projection but do not want to sacrifice a rich and expressive sound. The FJ-IV provides a huge, thick, and expressive sound with unparalleled projection.
The FJ-IV was designed to provide a sound that easily projects in all situations and is rich with harmonics and overtones. This allows contemporary players to play comfortably and know they will be heard. Unlike many loud mouthpieces the FJ-IV maintains a great core and a strong bottom end. Nothing is lost in the name of projection.
Besides being very powerful the FJ-IV has been designed to be extremely efficient. Of the many unique design elements, perhaps the most striking is the enlarged window. By widening and extending the window more of the reed is activated therefore creating more harmonic richness while also creating a free blowing and easily controlled sound.
Each FJ-IV mouthpiece is CNC machined using the absolute latest technology from the finest raw materials and is precision hand finished to ensure the highest levels of consistency and attention to detail.

We've all gotten used to reading the manufacturer's description of their products and trying to filter out the hype from the truth. After purchasing this mouthpiece and playing both at home and on a gig next to the guitar amp and without a monitor, I can say that I find everything they say about this mouthpiece to be true. It is powerful but retains a very full, rich sound at volume. It is very consistent through all registers. It is very efficient to play and easy to control. Eric told me it is designed to get a Brecker-ish sound but wasn't as bright as the JodyJazz DV I played previously. He was absolutely right. What I also found was the profile of this piece is the most comfortable I've ever played. That might not be the same for everyone but it sure is for me. Yes, you CAN believe what they say about this piece.
