Comments about MACSAX Bob Sheppard Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:
A great sounding mouthpiece! (8 opening, Selmer Mk IV 90K, "Vintage" Rico Jazz Select 2H reed.) Brings out a lot of color, with clarity, roundness and focus. Decent volume possible but to my ear, this is not a "screamer" R&B mouthpiece. This is a mouthpiece for a complex sound and a rich, full palette of colors. I don't play much altissimo, so the "normal" range is the most important for me and this piece delivers. It is one of the more expensive hard rubber mouthpieces out there, but not the highest. I have never been a fan of the Rico H ligature and use a Vandoren Optimum instead. Otherwise, I'm going to say with this one, you definitely get what you pay for. I'm keeping this one and will use it exclusively for my quartet and quintet gigs.
