Back in the 70's I had a Meyer 7MM that I used all through high school,and NTSU Jazz Lab Bands. Yes, Cannonball played a Meyer 5MM, but it was the old New York Meyer 5MM which is like todays Meyer 7MM with a tip opening of .081", todays Meyer 5MM has a tip opening of .071". I needed at least an .080" tip for Lead Alto Saxophone in the USAF Band of Flight Night Flight Big Band. This Meyer 7MM is perfect, just like my old one from the 70's. It's fat, warm really projects, when you push it, the tone gets soulful and greasy, perfect for the blues. Heck, I can even use this piece for classical concert band, and then go right to the swing big band Glenn Miller tribute, with "In The Mood". J.J.Babbitt is still making these with skill and care. Never when you try out 2 different mouthpieces, will they be exactly the same, it's always a great idea to try out a bunch and pick out the one you love the most. Mine just feels right, like Phil Woods New York Meyer 5MM, .080", My Meyer 7MM Is a .081" tip opening, with Vandoren Java 3 1/2 green box reeds, and 1963, Selmer Mark VI alto Saxophone. Jazz Heaven!
If you buy this mouthpiece, you are buying a name, nothing more. The production is not consistent or of good quality. So many of the facings turn out asymmetrical and the curvature of the tip doesn't always match that of standard reeds. Buy one of the Vandorens or Jody Jazz pieces of similar build.
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.
I bought this thinking it would be strictly a jazz mouthpiece. I not only use this for jazz band, but for concert band as well! The notes do not fade away like on my old mouthpiece. They remain consistent in all registers. The articulation is very exact and the tone is "clean" for classical and "dirty" for jazz. It is also very free-blowing. I have the 6m and I use Vandoren Java 2.5s. I am looking to try the Alexander Superials sometime though. I would not hesitiate to buy this mouthpiece!
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.
