Considering there are so many other brands of mouthpieces out on the market today, it is often quite difficult to find a great mouthpiece which satisfies everything one may need. With brands like JodyJazz, Vandoren, and Selmer fighting for the dominance in the market, it's nice to find a piece that's been around for a while and has proven its worth. I have used a Meyer 5m on my alto for several years and it has never faltered. A great mouthpiece for jazz, the hard rubber Meyer mouthpiece has been used by many great saxophonists, such as my personal favorite: Cannonball Adderley. It performs great while hitting the altissimo register, playing subtones, or simply playing some great bebop. My setup, for jazz, is a yas-82z, Vandoren optimum lig, and either Rico jazz select reeds or Superials. A perfect balance of having a very free and open sound, while still having a bit of resistance, the Meyer is a classic jazz mouthpiece which I would recommend for both students and professionals alike.
Yes, there is no such thing as a perfect mouthpiece. However, in my opinion, this one is extremely close to my idea of a perfect sound! Due to my love of a rich, thick and smooth sound, I ordered a Meyer 5 with a large chamber. Wow, what an astonishing mouthpiece! This has such a rich, luscious sound that it makes listeners literally want to melt. In addition, intonation on this piece is straight on, for other mouthpieces I have tried before do not come close. I definitely will not be buying another mouthpiece for a VERY long time!
I had been playing a Beechler hard rubber piece (dM) and it was okay but I needed to step up. My teacher suggested checking out the Meyer Hard Rubber and so I did. I ended up going with a 9M that gives me a great, open, warm sound. It is fairly responsive and I generally love the sound I get out of it.
I would rate this piece a four and half. I did have to have my sax teacher do some work on it to open up the piece a bit. There was too much back pressure in the upper range esp. Overall I love it and have not really been interested in changing it.
I have been playing saxophone professionally for the past 15-yrs and have played many different mouthpiece; Berg Larsen, Beechler Diamond Inlay, Otto Link, Dukoff and just last week I purchased a Meyer 5M. Let me tell ya, these mouthpieces are excellent! I see why Phil Woods, Grover Washington jr and many others use these mouthpieces. They are very versatile and cover a lot of ground.
Many people have stated that you need to try several to find one that plays well. All I have to say is I played on two a Meyer G Series 5M and a Meyer Standard 5M. I decided to go with the standard it had more of the tone I was looking for while the G had more warmth, the standard just suite my playing variety better.
Just buy one and play it, no need to try out several before you find one, if you need to do that then perhaps you should invest in more practice.
The only downside I have about these mouthpieces is the ligature; it tears up my reeds somethin awful. But with a little adjusting the problem was solved.
I bought a Meyer 5M yesterday and it is one of the best things I have ever bought. It's a great piece. One thing I like about it is the volume. You can play really loud with it. Another thing I like is that it's free blowing. It plays the moment you start blowing air through the horn.
