This mouthpiece I can truthfully say far exceeded my expectations as a musician in terms of endurance and the maintaining the amazing quality of tone!!!! I understand that the muscles of ones mouth has quite a bit to do with the tone but there comes a time when the mouthpiece is an even larger factor. When I play through this mouthpiece sound and pitch are not even an issue for me! I can just concentrate on the music at hand. Since playing with this mouthpiece I have developed more of a sweet, clear, and solid sound!!! These are my honest opinions of this mouthpiece's effect on my playing and from the general public that I have conversed with!!!! This mouthpiece works with all types of musical genre as I have played different styles and can say it absolutely met my needs of a new approach in my new style of playing!
I consider myself a pretty experienced musician, having majored in saxophone music performance in college. I have used a C* mouthpiece ever since I was in 6th grade, and even still I find it to be the best alto mouthpiece I?ve ever played on. I find it as equally easy to control my low B flats as my altissimo B flats. I understand that the horn, reed, and ligature you use have as much to do with the sound you produce as the mouthpiece you use; however I have never used a more versatile mouthpiece in my years of playing. This is also the mouthpiece that most, if not all, of my saxophone studio in college, played on as well. If you?re looking for a quality mouthpiece, with versatility and control, then I suggest this one.
The C* is still the best classical sax mouthpiece. If you are playing anything from solo works to concert band music this is the sound you want. The sound is full-bodied and slightly dark. If you own only one classical mouthpiece make it this one. Incidentally, as with any mouthpiece, order more than one of the same model to try out as they all will play a little different (manufacturing tolerances?).
At my teacher?s suggestion, I bought this mouthpiece about a year and a half ago and immediately noticed a drastic improvement in my tone quality from the cheep mouthpiece I?d been using previously. Though the S80 is designed for classical playing, I found it versatile and durable enough for marching band as well. I have dropped it (regrettably) several times, and it has yet to be seriously damaged. My only two complaints are that it can be hard to keep clean and that it can be hard to reach the extremes of the dynamic range with it. I use a Rovner dark ligature and 3.5 Rico Royal or 3 Vandoren reeds.
The C* has been recommended to me by students and teachers alike. Playing on my C* with my selmer signet is an amazing combination. I can get a really nice sound from most reeds. The C* provides wonderful tone and I would never get rid of it. The C* is definitely a worthwhile investment.
