New for 2023, the Bluebonnet 2023 is an updated version of the original Bluebonnet.
The MACSAX Bluebonnet Classical Alto Mouthpiece lives up to it’s name. Just as the Texas Bluebonnets blend effortlessly and beautifully into the Hill Country, this mouthpiece will blend just the same into an ensemble. Its darker tone will add a bit of color to a saxophone section, rounding out its sound and providing low, warm frequencies to the overall ensemble. While this mouthpiece is warmer than the Castilleja, we retained the responsiveness that makes both the Castilleja and the Bluebonnet so great.
Material: German Ebonite Rod
Tip Opening: .062"
Facing Curve: Medium-Short
This mouthpiece does not include a ligature.
The MACSAX JALAPEÑO was created to be a mouthpiece for a player who wants cut through the band with clear, even tone. The sound of this piece is bright and projecting, while maintaining a thick core sound we all like in a mouthpiece. This piece was designed to be played in pop or rock settings, but it is also extremely fitting for a soloist in front of a big band or in a jazz fusion group. If you are looking for a piece to make you stand out in the crowd, the JALAPEÑO is the piece for you.
Each MACSAX JALAPEÑO is made from a solid rod of brass with a green marbled hard rubber bite plate which is CNC milled for a very consistent and high quality mouthpiece.
The Lonestar is the only bari piece you will ever need to achieve a warn round bari tone that effortlessly blends into any big band or small combo setting. When you put this mouthpiece on your horn, you will make any ensemble instantly sound full and complete.
The MACSAX QUESO Tenor was created to be a mouthpiece for the contemporary tenor player that provides a powerful and projecting sound. Unlike many contemporary mouthpieces the QUESO does not sacrifice a fat and luscious core for projection and higher overtones. This mouthpiece has a well defined center at all dynamic levels that makes it perfect for any musical situation but is particularly suited for rock and contemporary music. The result is a mouthpiece that is easy to play with enough projection to allow you to be heard in any situation.
Each MACSAX QUESO is made from a solid rod of brass with a red marbled hard rubber bite plate which is CNC milled for a very consistent and high quality mouthpiece.
"The Queso provides a very comfortable way to cut through any type of band with ease and fluidity. The majority of bands I perform with are Salsa and Latin Jazz Ensembles. The Queso is an easy way to battle through these powerful and loud groups with out stressing so much."

"The SOCO is responsive and brilliant with out being harsh. The SOCO gives me the flexibility to play in the 1930's- 1940's swing style I love so well, and then seamlessly transition into a brighter sound for brass band, funk and rock gigs."
