Here is what Ponzol's website has to say:
INTRODUCING THE NEW SILVER LINE MOUTHPIECES:
In keeping with my goal of making mouthpieces that not only play well, but that are made from safe, food grade materials, I am pleased to introduce
this new line of inexpensive Ponzol mouthpieces.
These are the replacements for the hard rubber Vintage line. Made from a high quality synthetic material
containing no sulfur. At the moment there are the following models available:
ALTO C* (Square chamber model)
ALTO 5 (Meyer style)
TENOR 5* (Link Style)
These mouthpieces come with a standard ligature and cap. By keeping the amount of openings to a minimum, I am able to offer these at the amazing list price
THE CUSTOM MOUTHPIECES ARE BACK IN DELRIN !
For 20 years I have offered a line of mouthpieces called the Custom. In the past they were made of Ebonite (hard rubber). Ebonite (hard rubber) was
developed to make bowling balls and has as much as 30% sulfur, which out gasses. This is why the color fades and they begin to have a sulfur odor. I
discontinued the Custom mouthpieces three years ago because of the material. I tested many materials and finally found Delrin, a high tech synthetic
material that is FDA approved for food use, so you can imagine how safe it is to play. Delrin has many other qualities which makes it a much better
material for mouthpieces than hard rubber. Delrin actually costs the same as stainless steel. The older Custom mouthpieces were patterned after my
brass M2 mouthpieces. The new Custom mouthpieces in Delrin use the same computer program as my stainless steel models. The perfect mouthpiece for players
who don't like to play metal but want a modern mouthpiece with a similar response and sound. Available in one tip opening for soprano, alto, tenor and
I am sticking the Silver Line Ponzol Tenor on the same shelf as the HR Link Tenor mouthpieces.
And the Silver Line Ponzol Alto goes on the same shelf as the Meyer Alto mouthpieces.
