Re: Rollover Baffles
A rollover baffle is a short convex curve (sometimes it can be a short flat surface) beginning at the tip rail of the mouthpiece and then it drops quickly to the straight baffle producing a brighter edge to your sound without changing the charateristic sound of the mouthpiece. You can have a "fat" sound with some edge if you want. Depends on the general "sound-characteristic" of the mouthpiece that has that modification added. Some mouthpiece manufacturers incorporate it in their design as a standard feature. If it's done properly it can really enhance the texture and projection of your sound. If not, it can really mess your mouthpiece up! Someone had asked if the Beechler incorporates a rollover. The answer (if it's a Bellite) is yes. It's a very subtle rollover if you look closely. Would suggest having rollovers done by someone who really know what they're doing. It's not a casual exercise in filing and sanding. Does this help?
