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!

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!!

Comments about Selmer Paris S80 Series Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

My son asked for these for his sax ... he will not open them as his Christmas present until New Year's, but I am certain he will be excited. He did a lot of research before he decided on these items.

Comments about Selmer Paris S80 Series Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I bought this for my birthday because my old Yamaha mouthpiece chipped during marching band. When I received this it arrived very quickly and I played it for hours. It is much easier to use and produces a much cleaner warmer sound. It also comes with a mouthpiece cushion in case you wanted to know. I bought the C* and I would recommend this to anybody.

Comments about Selmer Paris S80 Series Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

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.

Beautiful Mouthpiece

Comments about Selmer Paris S80 Series Alto Saxophone 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

By

Comments about Selmer Paris S80 Series Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

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.

Good quality

Comments about Selmer Paris S80 Series Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

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.

Comments about Selmer Paris S80 Series Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

Before i bought this mouthpiece i was playing on a Yamaha 4c. Then i was to upgrade. I went to my local music store and tried out mouthpieces i narrowed it down between a Vandoren and this selmer. but i chose this one because it gave me a very good steady sound, very good intonation.

Nothing better for School auditions

By 

from Pittsburgh PA

Site Member

Comments about Selmer Paris S80 Series Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

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!
