Comments about Meyer Richie Cole Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

After my vintage Strathon died after 20+ years use, I had to find a replacement. I had a Yanagisawa HR 5 that came with with my 901 alto but had not played. I ordered a Vandoren V16, a Meyer G, Meyer Richie Cole, and a Jody Jazz HR* . All were 5 facings. The Yanni sounded good but the facing was too closed and could not be pushed. The Vandoren V16 seemed thin in the lower registers. The Meyer G also seemed thin. To my surprise, the Jody Jazz was not very free blowing. All were "good" but not exceptional. However, the Richie Cole hit out of the park. Luscious sub tones, beefy lower register, and easy to play very softly. It can be pushed until it screams with an edge that is still pleasing. Altisimo was stupid easy. It also played in tune throughout the full range of the horn. What more could you want than a very flexible mouthpiece that sounds great, that is easy to play, and plays in tune. Your mileage may vary, but I have found nirvana.

Comments about Meyer Richie Cole Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I tested out the Meyer Richie Cole Alto, Meyer G Series 5M Alto, and the Yanagisawa Hard Rubber Alto #5 mouthpieces. I chose the Meyer G Series 5M since it is the closest thing to my 1972 vintage Meyer 5M that I have played for all these years. The Richie Cole was not as clear and crisp for me. It felt a little fuzzy. Mouthpieces are very subjective however based on so many factors like reed, ligature,the person, etc.

Meyer Richie Cole Alto sax mouthpiece

Comments about Meyer Richie Cole Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

For those of you out there professional or otherwise this mouthpiece will give you that Cannonball Aderley/ Phil Woods/ Richie Cole sound you've been searching for. Superb projection/warm lush core/superb response in all registers. Altisimo just pops out. Reed lays up even on both sides of the face so that blowing is a breeze. Best jazz mouthpiece I've come across in long time, possibly the best ever. Great for r&b as well as jazz. Spend the money, you won't be disappointed.

Good intonation, free-blowing, solid in all registers, good tonal center. I have some of my more advanced students playing this Meyer and doing well on it. Now if I can just Richie's technique too!

Comments about Meyer Richie Cole Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

This is definitely one of the best jazz mouthpieces I have ever played. My regular Meyer 5M was just not cutting it anymore. My friend let me try his little collection of jazz mouthpieces. I lined them up and closed my eyes. Played each one, one at a time. The Richie Cole model Meyer totally blew me away. This Mouthpiece is not reed picky, absolutely free blowing and can play way up into the stratosphere in the altissimo register. Not only is the response good, but its intonation is spot on. These qualities packed into one mouthpiece allow for an unsurpassed level of expression and can adjust to any tonality. This mouthpiece in combination with my Mark VI beats everything else I have tried.
