A vintage style mouthpiece inspired by the 1960's Blue Note Era.

The Sapphire is inspired by the Blue Note Era of the 1960’s.  It was designed by Phil after years of custom work on links from every era.  Its design is drawn from the Late Florida Slants and the Early Babbitt pieces.  Its floor is higher than a modern Link and its projection and color is greater.  It can blow dark and smokey with a rich core and has the power to project and cut through in more straight ahead situations.  The Sapphire is never tubby and it is very even through the range of the instrument. With its rich and colorful palate the Phil-Tone Sapphire fills a space like no other.

Every Phil-Tone mouthpiece is hand crafted by Phil, not apprentices.  Bores are adjusted and baffles are hand carved.  Each piece is carefully play tested for tone and response.  It is Phil’s commitment that for a mouthpiece to reach its full musical potential it must be heard, felt and adjusted accordingly.  As little as a thousandth of an inch separates an average mouthpiece from one that sings. A great instrument is a blend of science and art, understanding, and intuition. It’s not about machinery or numbers. At Phil-Tone it’s not just about the mouthpiece, it’s about the music.  
Because of the process involved in making every piece, Phil-tone maintains the highest quality control in the business.
