"A Great All Around Mouthpiece!"

One of my favorite saxophonists living has always been Lanny Morgan. The mouthpiece he uses is a modified Selmer Soloist E. When I found out that Selmer released a mouthpiece line modeled after the vintage Selmer Soloists, I immediately went ahead and ordered myself a Selmer Soloist E. As a jazz mouthpiece, I found it to be darker and fuller than my Meyer NY Limited Edition and Vandoren V16, which made me like it more. Not only was I able to sound closer sounding to my hero, Lanny Morgan, but I felt that I could better re-create Phil Woods older sound (growls) better on the Selmer E. It also works so well for me as a classical mouthpiece that I now only use this one mouthpiece. My setup with this mouthpiece is a Selmer Mark VI with a Winslow Ligature and La Voz Medium or Vandoren V16 #2.5.

"Awesome Piece"

I went out and got this mouthpiece since I was not getting what I wanted from my Meyer. I got the C*, and let me tell you this is the best hard rubber mouthpiece I've ever played. Gives a round and fat tone, with even intonation throughout all registers. It's extremely versatile as well I use it for jazz as well as contemporary and classical music. This mouthpiece is worth every penny.

"Good mpc... but it just doesn't give you what you want 100% of the time"

A few days ago I went shopping for a mouthpiece. I lined up a massive line of modern and old school mouthpieces such as Brillharts, Myers, E.Rousseau's, Selmers. I had the pleasure of trying out a Selmer Soloist F. It was nice. I had to play a fair bit before I really got into the mouthpiece. When I was playing with my best tone I sound like Kenny Garret. I really enjoyed that. However, I found this mpc to be a bit low on the responsive side. It was a toss up between this and the E. Rousseau JDX. So naturally, I kept going back and forth. It wasn't everytime I got a perfect tone out of the soloist, but on the otherside I was getting everything I wanted out of the JDX. As a result I chosed the JDX. It's not that this is a bad mouthpiece, not at all. If I had the money I would have bought this one too! However, I found it lacked consistency. Whereas I believe in having good tone and working for it, during a gig I don't want to think about how my tone sounds, I want it to be there. So the tone was nice. The responsiveness wasn't particularly great nor was the consistency all that wonderful. However, as someone said before, this isn't a beginner's mouthpiece and it should be kept away from beginners.

I recently bought a new soloist d for alto and it?s the bomb. Especially on my Mark 6 although it works well on my Yamaha 62 also. Great projection. super easy to play. Can go bright or dark depending on how you play it. For years I?ve been looking for one piece to take care of all my needs and I think I just found it. I?ve played Meyers, Dukoffs, jumbo Javas, Beechlers and this soloist is the best sounding, and easiest mouthpiece I?ve played on alto. Kind of a focused sound. Projects and responds way better for me than the Meyers I?ve used.

"A Beautiful and Expressive Mouthpiece..."

I have played on many mouthpieces through the years; Berg Larsen, Beechler, Dukoff, Runyon, Lakey and several others. They are all wonderful mouthpieces but are very limited to what they can do. Today I play on a Selmer Soloist G facing with Alexander Superial DC 3 1/2 reeds and an Oleg ligature on a P. Mauriat 66R Alto; I also use an Otto link Super Tone Master for the added brilliance that only metal can give. The Soloist is a beautiful and expressive mouthpiece!! I can have the power of Gerald Albright and Nelson Rangell, I can have the lush warmth of those velvety smooth alto players from back in the day; this of course is due to your experience and talent. I have found that this mouthpiece is very expressive and has a very wide palette of tone. I have heard many people complain about these only being goon for Classical music, but I'm tell you with a little bit of effort on you side and some experimentation with different reeds and ligatures these mouthpieces can do anything; Rock, Jazz, Hip Hop you name it. It all depends on your talent and what you bring to the table. For people who do not like metal mouthpieces or need something not so brilliant in tone I highly recommend these mouthpieces for those looking for a perfect all around ebonite mouthpiece, they have never let me down and I am confident they will do the same for you.

"Soloist Kicks Butt"

I love this mouthpiece. I'd been curious about it ever since Kenny Garrett came on the seen. I've been playing on it for about a year now. Wide dynamic range, with the F facing anyway. That's what I use. It's a dryer sound than most mouthpieces for most of those who use it. I use Alexander Superial 3 1/2 reeds. My sound is brighter than Kenny Garrett's though. Probably because he uses a Mark VI and I use a Selmer Refrence 54 and the different reed types. I wish I was a little darker actually. A different sound for alto. It's a nice lush tone with good texture. It's got a nice warm center with lots of body even around the edges. Even though it's dryer, It's full and big with just the right amount of edgyness. And the intonation is unbelievable. I tried a lot of different reed brands and strengths on it. They all sound different for me at least. It quickly became my favorite mouthpiece. I'm obsessive about my tone. I found what I'm looking for, for now anyway. The Super Session was a little darker and it had a unique tone as well. I'm sticking with the Soloist though. It has greater projection. Of course I'm playing in a rock band right now. I need projection. For a jazz quartet I might try the Super Session.

This is a great Selmer mpc. The tone is so rich! I play on a F facing one and it is so good to me. It produces sorta like a Kenny Garrett tone. Kenny Garrett play a refaced modern soloist by the way. This are great mpcs, don't hesitate to buy. I mainly used mine for jazz. I'm sure they're great for classical too because of the warm, rich tone.

"Good mouthpiece for old vintage saxes"

I recently acquired a beautiful Conn Artist Special alto sax made in 1922. The Selmer Soloist mouthpiece is a very good match for this horn. The whole range is even, from low Bb to altissimo D, and intonation is spot on. This mouthpiece would be a good choice for any old vintage American sax.

This is the mouthpiece you NEED to get for playing classical music. I am using a Selmer soloist F with a #3 Hemke reed.
