Description
An absolutely amazing jazz piece for the price. The Rico Royal Graftonite pieces offer great projection and an even sound at a most affordable price.

Rico Royal Graftonite Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece
RICO ROYAL GRAFONITE
TONE CHAMBERS
Tone Chamber Style (A, B, or C): The tone chamber of a mouthpiece is the inside area of the mouthpiece. The size and shape of the tone chamber will change the tone quality of the instrument. With the Rico Royal mouthpieces, an "A" tone chamber will give a dark sound which is best suited for concert work, a "B" tone chamber will give a little more brilliance (better for using with most bands), and a "C" tone chamber will give a lot more brilliance and edge which is great for rock and jazz bands.FACINGS
Facing (3, 5, or 7): The facing is determined by the distance from the tip of the reed to where it first touches the mouthpiece. The bigger the facing number, the farther back the reed goes before actually touching the mouthpiece. Changing the facing of the mouthpiece will generally change the volume of the instrument. With a shorter facing (3), less of the reed is vibrating, so the instrument will tend to be quieter, with a longer facing (7), more of the reed is vibrating, so the instrument will tend to be louder.

"Awesome"

This mouthpiece is proof that there can be an affordable mouthpiece that is professional level. Great for jazz, the hard material makes a bright, natural, projecting sound that is great for a soloist. I recommend it with a rovner light ligature to get a good bold sound. The only reason I started to think about giving this product four stars is because of how bright and wild it can be. It can sometimes be hard to focus. Great for a professional.

I included this mp with my order for a Guardala MBII just to try: I've chosen an A5 to play baroque and have an alternative to the Selmer E I have with my SA 80 II. Imagine my surprise when I placed my RICO Royal 3 reed with the leather BG ligature and started to blow! Easiness and uniformity of tones were coming out from the horn in a very clean way; also the dynamic is very good: I placed the Selmer metal ligature and found it very balanced and louder, brightening the tone a little too. I was even able to play smoothly on to overtones and altissimo, as well as to the low notes! I Love it! Next order I will try a different measure. Highly recommended!

I am shocked by how well this 13$ piece sounds and plays. On my Martin tenor my B5 RR outplays anything else I have, also pieces costing 30 times as much. This is a truly excellent design, volume, projection, fullness; intonation is all there, no corners-cutting. Unbelievable. I have now 6 of those, the B5 is my favorite followed by the C7.

"very comperable to "high dollar" mouthpieces"

The value of this piece is unbeatable! It is not hard at all to get the volume and projection out of this mouthpiece to rival many metal "high dollar" mouthpieces. I use this both in combo work and in a big band setting. It's great for solo work! I have no trouble producing a nice bright sound that resonates in all ranges and all volumes. Altissimo is no problem at all with this mouthpiece. You won't regret giving this piece a try. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because it does take a little getting used to out of the box. It will take a little practice time to really be able to control this mouthpiece, especially while playing at low volumes. This is not a student mouthpiece.

"Good facing, needs chamber mod; great price"

Rating based on potential of the "C" chambered pieces. The pieces I've owned have had consistently good facing curves, but do not project well. Filled in the ditch behind the tip rail a little bit w. crazy glue, and projection and brightness improved. Added a baffle insert like a Runyon spoiler (fuggedabout the metal tail) and I had a very focused and responsive jazz piece with bottom to top response. A little bit of bore out at the back of chamber helped also, but difficult to do, this material is very tough. Same thing on an "A" chamber a bit darker and less projection, but some might like that.

These have been around for years, and I finally tried one. What a surprise! I thought of these as "gimme" mouthpieces - the ones that come with the saxophone, but nobody really uses. I finally tried one, and was blown away. While not the most exciting or complex tone, these are still great mouthpieces. Very stable, very consistent, and excellent intonation. I have quite a collection of mouthpieces, and this one holds its own with my Selmer and Otto Link. Now, if Rico would only bring back the Metalite...

"great mouthpiece"

Don?t be fooled by the price of this mouthpiece. Many people pass by this mouthpiece because they think it is for students. This mouthpiece has a great sound. It has a big husky sound that can get very loud, depending on the facing. On some of the biggest facing(s) I can get really high in the altissimo. The design of this piece is brilliant. Don't over look.

I recently started playing the sax again after 20 years (I got a cheap chinese copy tenor for $307 all included) and replaced the mouthpiece with a Yamaha 5C* (about 0.082" tip opening) which improved the tone 100%, but recently got a Grafonite B7 (I think about 0.102" tip opening), and wow, what a difference - takes some chops and a couple of weeks long tones but can get a rich full tone out of a pretty crappy instrument; plus with this much play, it helps to get some of the out of tune notes near pitch. At less than twenty bucks, you can get a pro sound - if only I had a pro musician to go with it. The wide opening on the -7 series makes this a loud mouthpiece - tell your family and neighbors to beware if you go for the -7.

"I recommend this mpc highly. Great projection and tone (ie., C5). I use it with an old Buescher TT."

I've been using this mpc for 2 years now with great results. Its now my main mpc for my Buescher TT beating out my old OttoLink STM. I find that I can get great tone and LOUDNESS without too much effort. In my performances (mostly Blues) this is a plus. Recommend it highly.

I am considering this mouthpiece but have heard that when buying a mouthpiece it is best to try a variety in order to achieve the most personally desirable sound. I don't want to blindly choose a tone chamber and facing combination when there are so many options available. Would it be possible to test a few before deciding on one?

You have some used Graftonite tenor pieces listed on the website, but the facings are not indicated. I'm looking for a C5 and for a C7. Can you help me?

I do not understand the your facing method with this product so I am not sure which one to get. I am a high school student who has been playing for over a year and am very good enough for and Intermediate type but which type of facing would you suggest for me?
