"Bright classical sound"

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!!

"Beautiful Mouthpiece"

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.

"Great mouthpiece for any regular player "

I play alto sax and I am already outgrowing this mouthpiece. It is only slightly dark and bright. The main problem for me is the tip is too small. The sound is not dark enough for me however it is a great mouthpiece. If you are a player looking to upgrade from a 4c it is the perfect mouthpiece. Why? Because it is easy to play, will sound great in a band or solo setting. However don't use it for marching band. The mouthpiece will suffer. I haven't and never will. However if you are a person with a vandoren mouthpiece don't change. Its not as dark as vandoren mouthpieces.

the c* makes a great classical mouthpiece. none come close to it. great for classical music, it will really improve your tone. I play this with a rovner ligature and vandoren strength 3 reeds. the only thing I don't like is that it can be a pain to clean. no other mouthpieces I've had are as hard as this one to keep clean, don't know why either.

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 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!

"All new students should buy this mouthpiece (Selmer C*)"

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!

"Drastic improvement to even the cheapest instruments"

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!
