"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!

"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 classic classical mouthpiece"

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?).

"This is the only mouthpiece I play on"

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.

"Beautiful Mouthpiece"

by DiTomasso - 1/13/2014 10:01:24 PM  Share

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.

"Perfectly Suitalbe for Ensemble and Classical Music..."

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.)

"Almost Perfect"

by Jeff - 3/22/2010 11:21:40 PM  Share
Musical Experience: Style of Music: Hometown:
6 year student Jazz, clasical, blues, soft rock, country moore, ok

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.

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.
