This chamber is suitable for saxophone sections or soloing with a combo.The Large BoreThe design of this bore favors the low to medium high frequencies of the instrument. This style of baffle induces a moderate air speed which lends itself to producing a dark sound suitable for close-miked or classical situations.

Beechler mouthpieces have been well reviewed by saxophonists and educators for decades. They don't come out with "new and improved" models because they don't have to and unfortunately have not expanded their line to include soprano and baritone saxophone mouthpieces (which one would think, they would do quite well). My first teacher gave me a Beechler alto sax mouthpiece about 30 years ago. I played this model into my twenties (the sound was instrumental-pun intended-getting me accepted into Eastman School of Music). In my twenties I strayed seeking the Sanborn sound. I wanted edgy with projection, something that not only aided in playing altissimo, but promoted it. I played Dukoff, SR Tech, Guardala and ended up with, ironically, a metal beechler. But something was missing (when recording using a metal moutpiece, I produced a thinner, pitchy sound). I was sacrificing sound quality for "shock and awe". Then recently I had an epiphany. I immediately got on wwbw.com and ordered a hard rubber Beechler like I used to play. No one beats their price or customer service and they got it to me in a matter of a few days. When I blew that first note, it was like coming home! It was like I never stopped playing it. Wonderful undertones and harmonics flow from it. Ease in all registers. Altissimo notes jump. Warm but with a welcome bit of edge. Most importantly, it plays in tune in all octaves. Very versatile. Soft ballads to obnoxiously loud, chaotic, edgy fusion. I can not speak highly enough of this wonderful mouthpiece. And by the way, it cost only $75.99 as compared to hundreds of dollars like my other mouthpieces that are collecting dust in a drawer. Anyone want to buy a used, pricy, metal mouthpiece? I am sticking with my Hard Rubber Beechler....Just like Jay from Spyro Gyra...
With just the right kind of reed & ligature setup, you can achieve a good fat warm tone coupled with rich & bright projection that can be found in metal mouthpieces. Every note actually sings beautifully! No doubt about it, Beechler definitely makes the best mouthpieces in the world.
I've played Otto Link, Berg Larsen, Selmer, King, Van Doren, Brilhart and other mouthpieces for about 50 years now. Some were better for me in some ways, others in other ways but there was never "one" mouthpiece that did anything and everything I wanted it to. Over the past couple years I had begun to listen more and more to Gerald Albright's sound. Very bright but still with richness and depth, not tinny like some. I wanted to get that brighter sound and that's why I ordered the Beechler. But I was so pleasantly surprised, actually awed to discover the flexibility it offers. Just a slight adjustment of the embouchure and the sound goes from very bright with richness and depth to very mellow and expressive. Then I added a Van Doren Optimum ligature and I'm in heaven. I got the s8. Fabulous is an understatement.
This is one of the brightest sounding rubber mouthpieces I've ever tried. In fact, it's almost just as bright sounding as its metal version. It sounds wonderful, and the price is a deal well beyond any other expensive mouthpieces such as SR technologies, Jody Jazz or a Guardala mouthpiece. It's so cheap yet it's so amazing. I'm still trying to get over how great this mouthpiece works while it being so inexpensive. Might I also point out that several highly popular saxophonists use this mouthpiece whose names are: Gerald Albright, Dave Koz, Kenny G, and many more. I will advise you to look up these musicians and listen to their sound to understand the tone of this mouthpiece before you buy it. But overall, if you?re looking for that kind of sound, this mouthpiece will not disappoint you.
This mpc is an 8m, perfect if you like the big bright sound or the powerful low sub tone. B flat its there no problem. I have played a 7 * Lakey for years but this mpc gives me everything the Lakey has but a little more excitement than metal.
