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.

"Changed my sound from begginer to professional!"

Words can't even explain how much this mouthpiece can make such a difference. I?ll just say that if you?re looking for that pro-like bright alto sax sound this is where it's at for you. I bought the model #7 and Rico plaster cover reeds #3 which is the exact set up a sax pro named Dave Koz uses. I would always wonder how he made such a great sound, but now I know: it's all because of the miracle sound the Beechler brand gives.

"Pleasant surprise is all I can say. Bellite 5"

Weekly jammer Jazz Aurora, Colorado

Wow, once when I was young and inexperienced I bought a Dukoff D6. What a mistake. If you don't know why I say that, buy one. I hid that horrid thing away and played on a Meyer 5 since then, and recently a guy was interested in a trade (his Bellite for my Dukoff). The only reason I agreed was the Bellites are worth more, and I planned to sell the piece and cut my losses. Received it TODAY, liked the way it looked, the ligature works great, better than many stock ligs out there. Slap it on, shudders remembering the sound of the Dukoff, the intonation problems, the dreaded chirp every now and then. Start playing, my god this thing plays great. Smooth, not harsh, I would say not contemporary, just good saxophone sound. The subtones are great, full on low notes are powerful. I will say as far as the low notes go, there is a lack of lower overtones which hard rubber pieces do have. The only adapting needed was about 4 minutes long in which the mid range notes sounded a little, let's say "Dukoff-ish". Quickly went away. My common trouble of getting F#3 to sound is nonexistent. The altissimo, incredible. I can get 6 octaves out of this baby no problem. Multiphonics are very hard to speak. Slap tongues are good and loud. Circular breathing is easy due to the back pressure. Octave chords are easy (not sure if anyone else plays those). Great mouthpiece with only a few minor trouble spots like the multiphonics and lack of overtones in the low notes.

"A Metal Mouthpiece That's Worth It's Weight in Steel!"

I've held off for a long time trying out a Beechler metal for my Selmer Super Action 80 Serie II, simply because I've always used hard rubber and believed that it allowed me to have a much more open, full blasting sound. Well, I finally purchased the Beechler Beelite metal #7 and I am so impressed with it. I admit that the sound isn't as open as a typical wide tipped hard rubber, but what it makes up for is in intonation and crispness! I believe that Intonation and a pure sound is much more important when you really want to play with your soul than any loud, forceful, open hard rubber sound can provide. One of the main reasons I disliked metal was because I believed that they take the "breath" sound away from the horn, well the Beechler is one such metal that is not like that - it still allows the horn to breath! This is important. When the horn is put to a mic, it sounds Soooo sweet and powerful with a Beechler metal. You may have to get used to it if you are switching over from a lifetime of the hard rubbers like I was, but now I'm working to perfect it and I tried to go back to the hard rubber in comparison and there just is no comparison anymore for me and the sound that I'm looking for. Don't listen to all the hype about this mouthpiece, if you really are interested, you have to find a sax store and take your own horn in and try one out - which is what I did before I paid the money to purchase one. Now the only thing is that I believe that the ligature that comes is okay, but there are other ligatures that allow this mouthpiece to work so much more effectively - you need to experiment with that ligature reed setup once you get the mouthpiece, in order to find out what works best!! Don't not try this one - you owe it to yourself if you are looking for a quality sound to try it.

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.

"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 bought 2 Beechler Belite mouthpieces; a #6 and a #7. I started playing on the #6 at first and loved it but a few months ago, I switched to the #7. Both plays amazingly. The #7 however plays better for me. this mouthpiece gave me the control and freedom to express myself the way I always wanted to.It's a very "free blowing" mouthpiece with great response over the whole instrument. Great altissimos too! I've been using the Legere synthetic reeds with it and they work beautifully. It's great for contemporary styles of playing but I find that it works good overall. It's very versatile. If you are looking for a mouthpiece that enables you to create magic, then this is the one for you!!

I purchased a Beechler Bellite mouthpiece about 2 months ago, and I'm happy to say I've been quite satisfied. The piece (a Beechler Bellite 7) is very responsive, brilliant sounding, and warm. It plays evenly from the lower register all the way up through the altissimo. The mouthpiece can be applied to a variety of styles and truly provides for a unique sound. It can easily achieve a modern, contemporary sound, with the desired edge, but without the shrillness that comes from other metal mouthpieces.

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.

"the Beechler 8"

I was playing on an Otto Link 8* because it was my first step in the metal mouthpieces it is a really great mouth piece and the altissimo and its tone is great but I felt like something was missing, but the thing that made me want to switch was the ligature on the Otto Link it would not secure tightly at all and the reed would move it. It was not tight enough, and I had been listening to Boney James a lot and I loved his sound and I wondered what mouthpiece he used for his alto and I looked it up on his site and saw that he uses a Beechler 8 with Vandoren V16 3.5 with a Winslow ligature so I decided to buy the mouth piece and I just received it 2 days ago and its every thing my Otto Link wasn?t right now I'm using Lavoz medium with my Beechler witch of course is Gerald Albrights setup except he uses a diamond inlay but I still get the same sound and its beautiful, but I expect my sound to change once my Vandoren V16 reeds come in. and I'm finding that the altissimo is kinda hard but I guess it because I'm not use to the mouthpiece yet but I expect it to be on it in a couple of days because I love to play altissimo notes so I'll be okay over all I give this piece an 10 out of 10 and my link a 7 out of ten hope this helps.

I am happy to say that Beechler has outdone itself with this mouthpiece. The Beechler Bellite I purchased a few months ago has helped me tremendously in producing the sound I've been aiming to reach for the longest time! Major Pros: *Great air flow and high response: I can't say how many times I've used a mouthpiece and had air pressure quickly build up in my head. This mouthpiece eliminates that problem. *Produces a bright, rich sound many jazz players are looking for. *Altissimo notes and overtones pop out with ease. On my first try with the mouthpiece, I was able to hit partials in the overtone series I couldn't reach before with just my older mouthpieces. It actually helped with training my ear to hear the overtones and finally hit those "missing" partials on my older mouthpieces. Minor Cons: *Mainly a reed issue: if you have a reed that's too soft, you'll definitely find yourself squawking notes a lot. Too hard, and you'll find yourself playing very airy. Once you find the right reed that suits your needs, it's well worth it. *As with all metal mouthpieces, it's quick to cause fast condensation in it and your horn. If you have constant moisture issues with your saxophone, this may become a small problem if you don't have swabs or pad savers handy.
