FATBOY mouthpieces are fatter than the original Guardala’s. The elliptical shape allows the mouthpiece to have a larger size, with a lesser increase of weight. The resulting size/weight ratio is the only way of producing a “BALANCED SOUND” with a mouthpiece larger than the original Dave Guardala Mouthpiece. The additional weight can give more resonances than the same model without. All other dimensions are the same as standard model.
