We have tried most every mouthpiece available, and time and again found this piece to be the best all-around alto mouthpiece for people who are looking for their first good mouthpiece for a wide range of playing situations. Meyers are ok but have poor quality control, and Selmer C*'s are just mediocre and also often have poor facings. A good Meyer is great, but a Yanagisawa HR in a 4 or 5 opening does what a Meyer does, only with much more consistently great workmanship. You get a nice, medium bright tone that projects well without being too harsh for wind band settings. Works well for ensemble and jazz work. If you're only going to have one alto piece, and you're playing more than classical sax, there are many worse places to start than this.
I tested out the Meyer Richie Cole Alto, Meyer G Series 5M Alto, and the Yanagisawa Hard Rubber Alto #5 mouthpieces. I chose the Meyer G Series 5M since it is the closest thing to my 1972 vintage Meyer 5M that I have played for all these years. The Yanagisawa was not as clear and crisp for me. It felt a very fuzzy feeling and sounding. I have a Yanagisawa #5 metal on my tenor that is a fabulous mouthpiece. Mouthpieces are very subjective however based on so many factors like reed, ligature,the person, etc.
