Recently I was asked to double on alto saxophone for performances of Moussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition; I am usually bassoon III/contrabassoon. I hadn't played any saxophone for several years, alto saxophone in even longer and all that the orchestra could afford to rent for me was a band instrument from the local music store. So, I purchased the S80 C* mouthpiece and a Rovner ligature and was extremely impressed that using the exact same reeds (Vandoren #3, regular purple box) the instrument went from sounding like the local middle school marching band to something I could actually play symphonically. No, it didn't magically make it into a Selmer Mark VI, but everyone in the woodwind section and the conductor noticed immediately. The saxophone is getting returned to the store when the rental is up, but I'm keeping the mouthpiece for the next time I need to double!
All new Saxes come with "junk" mouthpieces because they know that the buyer will eventually buy their own mouthpiece. I recommend this S80 / C* "C star" opening as a great starter. It's worth the money especially if you have invested in a new sax or a pro vintage Mark VI. I'm a private teacher and I have parents of young students buy this mouthpiece because it's noticeable right away that the tone is darker, more mellow, more pleasing to the ear. Even parents who know nothing about music or the sax notice the difference. The reason is that the mouthpiece is made of hard rubber - not plastic. To add to my previous comment - I will even have students as young as 5th, 6th grader buy this because some of my students have chair placement tests even at that young age and when they test well - it's encouraging to them, they enjoy music, they practice more! So if you are going to invest in buying a sax, stretch your pocketbook out just a little more for this mouthpiece. Don't be cheap - it's that old saying - "penny wise, pound foolish? (Later add a Meyer mouthpiece for jazz when the player matures). Hope this helps!
hi im 15 and have used this mouth piece for about two years now and have played for five.with this mouth piece i went from my selmer lavoix sounding like any other of the saxophones at cheney high to the person that stood out and now i have 1st on most of my music this mouth piece has helped me out alot and it a must buy
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!
Thru my 21 years playing saxophone I've tried lots of different mouthpiece brands and models. When I play my Selmer S80 C*, I can feel the difference in playing free, with a nice and warm sound and really easy low register. I recommend this mouthpiece to all of my students.
