This mouthpiece was inspired by a famous Al Hirt Jet-Tone mouthpiece. The rim is wide and relatively flat and has some undercut going into the cup. The cup is shallow (similar to Bach E). The entrance to the throat is open, so it yields plenty of air flow and a nice big sound. Slotting is excellent with the JT AH. It is kept in stock in the Legends JT blank, which is a perfect balance: enough mass to enhance slotting with a big core, but not so much mass that the sound won’t sizzle! Although this design was inspired by a piece played by the legendary Al Hirt, it is not an exact copy. This piece has the Legends enhanced throat (#27), enhanced throat cylinder length, and the Legends S backbore. This piece is great for legit or lead playing.
