This mouthpiece is truly amazing. I have had mine for seven months now and have had absolutely No problems. It is truly the best I have played on. I purchased the C*. It is definitely the mouthpiece for any player and especially the one who is ready to take their music to the next level. I am definitely not ashamed of this purchase. You may not be ready to spend this much money on your music, but it is definitely worth it. You will immediately notice the tone quality change. YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!
This is one of those mouthpieces that are easily mastered and are good for those who want good tone quality for ensemble and classical playing. The best reeds to use on this mouthpiece are by far, Vandoren Traditional. I?ve tried so many other reed s on this mouthpiece but none even come close to Vandoren. The square camber of this mouthpiece provides easy blowing and great intonation. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for something better but maybe not someone who wants a jazz or pop saxophone sound.(the sound this mouthpiece produces is very unbright and neutral sounding sax sound. It doesn't come too close to the sound of professional sax players such as Kenny G or Gerald Albright.)
I find this mouthpiece to be a beautiful first step towards a great classical sound if you are a High School or Middle School player. However, once at a University, I believe it is very important to find a mouthpiece which will exemplify the type of player you want to be. If you are a jazz player, you will have to find a better mouthpiece for jazz- this will not do. If you will be primarily a classical player, you need to decide if you will be playing mostly Broadway-type gigs, band gigs, or orchestral gigs. I do not find the Selmer C* (or the Larry Teal) to be appropriate- in my case- for the dark, rich sound needed to blend and tune with an orchestra. For that, I recommend a mouthpiece with a much larger chamber, and not a small chamber (such as the LT or C*) shaped either in a circle or square (as these two mouthpieces are). I have found the Caravan mouthpieces to blend with orchestra and produce a rich, dark sound- not found with this mouthpiece. In fact, I have even been told my sound is "too dark" in some cases... One more suggestion, if you are in MS or HS and are considering buying any new mouthpiece, be sure to buy about 3 at first, try them out, and then return the two you didn't like. WWBW has a great policy with this and it is the ONLY way you should buy any mouthpiece. It is quite possible to get a "dud" mouthpiece (relatively speaking) and to counter this, try 3 out first!!
This was my very first purchase of a mouthpiece; my old one was getting chipped and cracked.
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.
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!
This mouthpiece is fantastic for the junior high and high school player. It gives you just the sound you need to be successful on auditions and sound warm,dark, and well rounded playing with your wind ensemble.
It shouldn't be used for Jazz band because it lacks the projection and flexibility you need.
I had much success with this through college. But when playing improve and jazz you need something with a larger opening and chamber.
I recommend it to all my students and they are very successful with this no matter what sax they are playing pro level or student.
So if you are in school or just want the best sound for your auditions for legit, concertos, or wind ensemble don't hesitate and buy this mouthpiece and do a lot of long tones!
I purchased a Selmer c* when my band director recommended that I step up to a higher level mouthpiece. There can be resistance at first, but the c* plays great with a Rovner ligature and Vandoren #2\2.5 reeds.
This is the mouthpiece I started playing on and it worked great for the first 6 years of my career. I started on a C* which is for the most part the basic beginner/intermediate mouthpiece of this style. I played on it for everything from jazz to classical music. Later on as my style improved I found it limiting a bit and ended up switching to a higher end mouthpiece with more versatility and better play. This mouthpiece produces a good tone without the necessary control that it takes a while to acquire. I would highly recommend this mouthpiece for any beginner, but perhaps not for anyone who has more experience.
