Description
Steel mouthpiece for complex overtones.

Beechler Metal BELLITE Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece
The Beechler Metal Bellite alto sax mouthpiece is cast from the finest surgical steel. Surgical steel is a specific type of stainless steel, often used in medical applications, made out of chromium, nickel and molybdenum. The chromium gives the metal its scratch and corrosion resistance, the nickel provides a smooth and polished finish, and the molybdenum gives greater hardness and helps maintain an edge. Only instead of slicing surgical patients, you'll be slicing through hard bop and modal jazz changes with surgical precision.

The material is resistant to corrosion, breakage, or change in playing characteristics due to environmental considerations. The hardness of this metal provides an ultra fast response time to bring out the brilliance of the overtone series. The Bellite Alto features a medium high baffle and open chamber, which supports a brilliant contemporary sound as well as a subdued ballad sound. Ligatures and caps are provided with all Beechler Gold and Bellite models.

Order today with the no-risk assurance of our Total Satisfaction and Low Price Guarantees!

"Nice but not for me."

I spent several months playing this piece on my Selmer Reference 54 and I could never get the high notes to open up. They sounded thin unless I blasted really loud. It's important to me to get a good sound at all dynamic levels. Nevertheless I kept trying. I thought maybe I just wasn't used to it yet. I thought I liked it on the rest of the horn until a heard a quality recording of myself recently. It was very revealing. I'm not a Dave Koz fan like some of you are I chose it because I like Eric Marienthal's tone from Chick Corea Elektric Band. My tone was actually too compact and it wasn't rich enough like his is. And every once in a while a big loud squeak would pop out. I've had a couple of people tell me, I like when you do that I think it sounds good. I hate it though. I think its cool when you can do great altissimos but when you're squeaking on accident there's a problem. My ego won't live with that. The low notes were pretty lush but I of course want to sound good on all the notes. I've given up on metal mouthpieces for alto. Our airstreams just aren't built the same and neither are our embouchures. Everyone's different. I also found out a long time ago by looking at Beechler's website that Marienthal, Dave Koz, and just about every other well known sax player who gets radio play and uses a metal Beechler have custom made ones. The ones they're playing have been adjusted to their own specifications and may even be completely different.

"Beechler Bellite 7 Facing "

Absolutely outstanding. I cannot tell you how pleased I am with this mouthpiece on my Mark VI. The lows moan and resonate beautifully, producing sexy subtones. The highs soar and sing with ease and clarity. Not to mention that fat, fat, fat altissimo I get from this piece. Just a stunningly robust, bright, POWERFUL, modern sound all around. I will never play another mouthpiece again. Also, the response this mouthpiece gives is instant. I've played hard rubber mouthpieces all my life, so I don't know if it's the switch to metal, or just this particular mouthpiece, but wow, everything on the horn just pops immediately no matter how hard you pound the notes. The only complaint I would have is that I wish they would include a chrome or gold-plated ligature with the mouthpiece instead of a black powder-coated lig. Still works great, though. Do yourself a favor and buy a Beechler.

"Very nice piece but definitely only for advanced players"

I thought this was a really nice mouthpiece when I received it. However, never having played on a metal mouthpiece, I wasn't sure what I was getting into. I would highly recommend this mouthpiece for advanced players and intermediate players who have had significant experience with metal mouthpieces. I consider myself an intermediate player but like I said, I never used metal before. I ended up returning it because it wasn't right for me at this time.

I have been playing Alto Saxophone for 15 years now and have been using a metal mouthpiece for 7 of those years. I was playing a Runyon Smooth Bore #6 mouthpiece and was having some problems with the sound that I was getting. As bright sounding as it was, I was not satisfied with the sound so I finally spent the money for an upgrade to this mouthpiece. I wanted to recreate some of Dave Koz's sound and also paired it with the #3 Rico Plasticover reeds. I thought that I would need more time to get used to the mouthpiece, but I was wrong! Right out of the box, it gave me the sound I wanted with the power and tone I needed. The only difference between the mouthpieces was that I could not blow the heck out of it and produce the same sound, like I could with the Runyon. But, this being said, now that I am not concentrating on lung capacity and airflow, I was able to focus on tone and the altissimo register. Definitely buy this mouthpiece - it is well worth the wait!!!

"most amazing mouthpiece ive ever tried"

I have tried a Meyer 6 and a Runyon Bionix 8 and I was not satisfied with either of them. I fell in love with Dave Koz's sound and decided to take a gamble and get the Beechler. When it first arrived I couldn't believe how small it was. It?s about the size of a typical metal soprano mouthpiece. It took me about 5-6 weeks to get the mouthpiece to purr. It?s very different from any mouthpiece that you ever have or will try. Over all I would recommend this mouthpiece to every one, but only if your going to put in the time to master it.
