Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

Picked up this mouthpiece for my son who is beginning on alto based upon reviews and price point. Wow! What a nice little mouthpiece. My son struggled for a few days with the mouthpiece that came with his school horn and what a difference when this Forbes Debut arrived. He likes practicing and the household enjoys listening now that this mouthpiece is in our household. Thanks!

Very warm sound!

Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I purchased this based on information I read online about student-level saxophone mouthpieces. I am a band director...and while I'm not a saxophone player, I am always interested in keeping up on instrument proficiency so I can recommend things to my students. I've been playing on a Hite mouthpiece on my alto for about 2 years. While significantly better than a typical stock mouthpiece, I still wasn't as in love with it as I was with their clarinet mouthpiece...something didn't seem quite right. The Hite, while versatile, had a tendency to be very bright--almost edgy. I bought the Fobes to compare. THIS is the mouthpiece I was hoping to get when I bought the Hite. The Fobes Debut is much warmer, and slightly darker-sounding than the Hite, with the same versatility. I tried a variety of reed types (Vandoren blue-box, V16, and ZZ) to see what styles I can get out of the mouthpiece, and had success with all. I plan on recommending the Fobes Debut to all my students!

Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

This is the best value for the dollar of student mouthpieces on the market. The quality is outstanding. With a good metal ligature students have a wonderful mature tone.

Fobes Debut Alto mouthpiece

By

Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

Looking great out of the box, this played great to with a Rico Reserve 2 reed held on by a Rovner Mk3 ligature. The tone is excellent. I'm not sure who would know if this was being played professionally as it has no weakness I could find, except maybe for altissimo notes. But I've only played it for 5 minutes and it's totally exceeded my expectations for the money. Mr CW Fobes is genuine!

Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

This is an outstanding product and an incredible buy. If you didn't know better, you'd swear that you were playing a hard rubber mouthpiece costing three times the price.

Best Student Model Out there!!

By

Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

This model by Fobes is the best out there for the student on a budget. Listen, this thing is great. My teacher let my try one out for one lesson, and it was absolutely stunning the difference this made on playing my classical literature. Now, I'm no classics snob, but this mouthpiece truly helped me grow to a deeper understanding of what this music is all about. Tomorrow my teacher will show me the pro-model. I'm pretty sure I'll buy it if I can get the cash. Check out clarkwfobes.com for the man's page. It's not a very good-looking page, but let me tell you this is one of the best buys you can make. I'll bet the pro-model is even better.

The Best!!

Comments about Clark W Fobes Debut Student Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I took advantage of the free trial of the Debut from Clark and Fobes. I've often wondered why student mouthpieces were inferior to hard rubber - but now I know, there's no good reason. It's about the design, and a plastic mouthpiece can sound every bit as great as one made of hard rubber. I'm sticking to my Debut for the clarinet (for now). I might go back to the Vandoren 45 on a big band performance, but I'm testing the versatility of the Debut, and it seems to be measuring up just fine. As for ease and evenness of response, all expectations have been surpassed. Intonation is great, too, and the sound is lovely.
