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.

I recently purchased a Meyer 5M to use as my jazz mouthpiece after several colleagues recommended it. The first thing I noticed was that the ligature that it comes with is worthless. I threw it away because it didn't fit the mouthpiece at all. The mouthpiece itself is very free blowing and responds very quickly. The tone is very bright - perfect for jazz, and it projects very well. The problem is the mouthpiece is very hard to control and nearly impossible to play in tune. Intonation is VERY inconsistent. The facing of the mouthpiece was also quite uneven, which I was extremely unhappy about. A brand new mouthpiece should not need refacing immediately. As far as versatility goes, it won't really work well for classical music. It's far too bright. There are also unpleasant overtones in the sound and some notes sound "choked." Overall very shoddy workmanship. Definitely not worth the price.

Try a Few of them

By 

from Culver City

Site Member

Comments about Meyer Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I just auditioned three Meyer alto 7MMs. One is going right back, two are excellent, in different ways. So I agree with all of these reviews in one way or another. However, none of the three would I call shoddy. They are well-made and fit the reed nicely. The ligature is indeed worthless. The point is, try several of them and pick the characteristics you like. If you don't like any of them, well, that can happen with any mouthpiece, but if you find one you like, you'll have a really nice mouthpiece for much less than some of the $280+ alto mouthpieces out there.

Great Mouthpiece, Great Service

By 

from Mexico, Mexico

Site Member

Comments about Meyer Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

This is my first mouthpiece and I absolutely recommend it for everyone. I bought the 7M Mouthpiece and it's a charm. Free-blowing and it has a dark warm tone but proyection is not compromised. Also the delivery service was excellent. The product was delivered on time and in perfect conditions. Sadly there is no variety of Mouthpieces here in Mexico; so if you're gonna buy it without testing, I recommend this product and services for other who can't go to store directly. Also the price is fair enough.

"Awesome Mouthpiece!!"

By 

from Marshall, VA

Site Member

Comments about Meyer Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

This is an awesome mouthpiece, there is no reason to purchase a vintage Meyer when these are the same. Don't be fooled into thinking that these are no good because they are mass produced and not hand finished. The mpc is just as good as the vintage ones, however in any manufacturing you could get a lemon and if that happens just send it back and get another. I play a mid twenties King alto and I purchased the 5L and found it to be a little loud: sent it back and purchased the 5M. Total satisfaction. The perfect combination of sound and edge. My Meyers 5M and my 1926 King and I are going to be very happy for a very long time.

Best Alto Mouthpiece

By 

from Green Bay, WI

Site Member

Comments about Meyer Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I have played many different brands including Jody Jazz HR, Otto Link, Jody Jazz DV's and Berg Larsen's, on both tenor and alto. I can say from my experience playing these different brands that these stock Meyers make some of the best mouthpieces on the alto. They play perfect right from the box without any added bull involved. High notes are effortless and low notes are perfect, great mouthpiece for sub tones. They sound great on my Yamaha YAS-82zUII, and Vandoren Java Red 2.5's. Get this mouthpiece!

Impressive

By

Comments about Meyer Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

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!

Great Mouthpiece!!!!!

By 

from New York, NY

Site Member

Comments about Meyer Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

Great Mouthpiece!! Love it! I am an intermediate saxophone player who is learning sax. I bought this mouthpiece used at a pawn shop in my area. When I chose this mouthpiece, it was like love at first sight! This mouthpiece has a Grover Washington Jr like sound when I play it. To get the most out of this mouthpiece, I play it with a rico Orange Box Strength 2.5 reeds. It is not recommended for beginners, due to the open tip. And for those of you who posted negative reviews, you can't just buy a mouthpiece online, you have to personally and physically buy a mouthpiece. Mouthpieces in person are not the same as the mouthpieces shown on the internet. Different mouthpieces are manufactured differently, some tables may be even and others may have it perfectly level. If the mouthpiece tip or table are not even, it can be fixed, the methods mouthpieces are fixed is called mouthpiece refacing!!! Just keep it to a mouthpiece refacer, My Advice to people who are investing in mouthpieces: Always buy them personally so you can try them out.

What's Happened to JJ Babbitt?

By 

from East Coast Conservatory

Site Member

Comments about Meyer Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

Today's Meyer mouthpieces (along with their cousin, Otto Link-both made by JJ Babbitt & Co) are a shadow of their former self. There are TERRIBLE inconsistencies in the production. I ordered three 7M's and even the best one of the batch had an asymmetrical facing and has some problems. Before I bought the 7M, I had a 6M that was practically unplayable. When I strap on my teacher's OLD Meyer, it plays like a dream. I suppose "they don't make 'em like they used to" applies here. If you order enough pieces to try, you MIGHT find a decent one. Save some more cash and buy a Vandoren V16, JodyJazz HR, or Selmer Spirit

INCONSISTENT AND SHODDY

By 

from Virginia

Site Member

Comments about Meyer Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

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.

Excellent All-Around Mouthpiece

By 

from Vallejo, California

Site Member

Comments about Meyer Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone 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.
