I have an Keilwerth ST90 and played the standard mouthpiece for 4 years then on the advice of my tutor bought one and what can I say I love it I use a Vandoren java #3 and i could hit altissimo up to C i believe. Well worth the money. As for Jazz it is so free flowing when partnered w/ a Rovner ligature. Great for marching band it is because it has very good control you can go from PP to FFF w/out a hitch.
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.
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!
I fist got this Meyer 7 mouthpiece upon my teacher's request. First, I felt a little bit sorry for buying this mouthpiece, because I didn't try it before I bought it. Then, when played my sax, I could feel the immediate response; I could produce dark and rich sound without sacrificing the brightness of the tone. I've also tried Jody Jazz and many other prestigious mouthpieces, however, only a few of them could be compared to this mouthpiece. I love this mouthpiece!
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 have tried many jazz mouthpieces and my Meyer M6 is my favorite. This piece allows you to blend and solo with control and freedom. I did own a M5 for a while and I felt restricted. So I went up to a six. I have also tried Beechler Diamond Inlay pieces and that didn't compare with a Meyer. For a student that can't afford several pieces for different styles this is perfect. You also want to make sure that your piece works with the sound of your horn. Keep in mind that Meyer's are all hand-crafted and vary a little bit so it is a good idea to order at least two to compare. Good piece.
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!
If you put the work into it this mouthpiece will return the favor. Also, along with Cannonball, don?t forget that Phil Woods uses one too.
2 Weeks ago I got a large-chamber size 7 to go with my #3 Vandoren Javas and DAMN this mouthpiece puts you in the driver's seat. I have more tonal, dynamic and pitch control than ever. This mouthpiece will do anything you selfishly ask of it: sing, smolder, scream, soar---it doesn't matter. But definitely for improviser's who want warmth and roundness combined with freedom.
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.
