Guardala mouthpieces are synonymous with quality manufacturing and design. They were made famous by Michael Brecker creating his own amazing sound on his own models with the MB and MB II.
Shock waves were sent through the jazz community in the 1980s. Superior sound could be reached through precise, high quality and innovative CNC technology. This opened the doors to previously unheard of levels of precision. Guardala mouthpieces are a combination of computer accuracy and professional handcrafting expertise.
