Full, open feel with rich core, and centered tone.

The Solstice harkens to the days of the “West Coast” school of sound, made famous by such greats as Art Pepper, Lee Konitz, and Paul Desmond.  The sounds and styles of these greats inspired the creation of this mouthpiece.  The Solstice has a rich core and a full harmonic palate, while also possessing a lively and lyrical quality.  There have been several modern attempts to approach the West Coast sound but the majority leave the player with a stuffy, dull, and resistant piece. The Solstice plays open, full, and with ease.  Its responsive, ringing, centered tone provides a unique avenue towards expression and opens the door to new possibilities.  From flowing bossa novas, to the jazz quartet standards, to a beautiful, lyrical, emotional ballad…the Solstice does it all.

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.
