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.
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.
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!
The reason I say almost perfect is that I have trouble with the bottom only on this mp, and it is only on my alto. I have this mp on bari, alto and soprano and would recomend the soprano mp and bari mp to anyone, the alto just trips in the bottom. I have to focuse more on the bottom with the C* than my E Rousseau or Rico.
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!
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!!!
After a 15 year layoff, I decided to pick up the sax again. I started with a J/D Hite Premier mouthpiece, and while it's a great value and fine for beginners, I felt I needed something better. The Selmer lives up to its reputation. You're getting quality and I noticed an immediate improvement in tone. It's not a 'transition' mouthpiece. I expect this to work for me for a very long time. I don't know what the pros are playing, but this mouthpiece has a lot to offer for many types of players. Very satisfied.
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!
