Jody Jazz convert

Comments about Selmer Paris Soloist Tenor Saxophone Mouthpieces:

I must say about 2 years ago when I started playing again, I drank the cool-aid and listened to my friends about the Jody Jazz line of mouthpieces. I played them all and they are fantastic (after reading this review, please understand I still feel that these are good pieces, but not the best anymore). Recently my friend was playing his Tenor and his tone was amazing, it had a crisp mellow tone that really resonated with me. I looked and he was using a Selmer Soloist HR E facing. He uses a Yani and I play a Yamaha, so I asked him if I could try out his piece on my horn. I disinfected the piece and played it on my 62-iii. I was blown away. I am somewhat ashamed to admit that I wasted a lot of money on Jody Jazz pieces after playing this Selmer Soloist. This mouthpiece single handedly plays better than my Meyer HR 7, Jody Jazz DV 7*, CHI 7, and HR 7*. There is no comparison, the tone was amazing, the altissimo was flawless, the lower register was clean. It almost felt like I had a new horn. I immediately ordered one, not only for my tenor, but also my Alto and it was flat out amazing as well. I hate to say I wasted a ton of money on my Jody Jazz equipment, but honestly I did as the sound did not compare. You should not do the same (learn from my very expensive mistakes), I encourage you to try out this piece before you buy another mouthpiece. The price is reasonable and the WWBW return policy is fantastic. Try out this piece and you will not be disappointed.

BEAUTIFUL!!!

Comments about Selmer Paris Soloist Tenor Saxophone Mouthpieces:

So I was in search of a new mouthpiece and a good friend recommended the soloist and I got to say I am not regretting my change! The tone I get with vandoren traditionals and the v12 is amazing I love this mouthpiece for classical!!!! I still haven't tried it for jazz mainly because I haven't found a good reed that I really like to go with the mouthpiece but I highly recommend more people to try the Soloist mouthpiece. I give you my word that you will agree it was the best choice you ever made!!!

Comments about Selmer Paris Soloist Tenor Saxophone Mouthpieces:

I bought this before school started and I thought it would just be temporary until I got a new Tenor because mine was getting worn down. When I first played it I was amazed at the amazing tone and intonation! I fell in love with it and have been using it for about 2 years now and love it!!!!!

GREAT MOUTHPIECE

By 

from San Francisco

Comments about Selmer Paris Soloist Tenor Saxophone Mouthpieces:

this is truly a great mouthpiece. it has a full sound rite away, and if you like sub tone you can get it out with ease. i like the tone on this mouthpiece because it's not like the other brands. on Meyer the sound is to thin, on a rubber link the high register is to hard to work with plus its not powerful enough, on a metal link the sound is not warm enough, but on the soloist it gives enough of a warm sound and the sound just pops out and it's also phat and round it's a great mouthpiece well worth the price.

Fantastic

By

Comments about Selmer Paris Soloist Tenor Saxophone Mouthpieces:

I love this mouthpiece. My preferred setup for jazz is an F facing with a Vandoren Java 4 reed. Sometimes I'll use a regular Vandoren 3. It's round and warm, Dry and dark and it's easy to play. It's a great cross over mouthpiece for those who play both jazz and classical music. That is unless you're looking for something bright. I like mellow. It's certainly not a Dukoff or a Guardala if that's what you're looking for so if you're into pop jazz you probably won't like it. This is totally straight ahead although those who come to listen to the rock band I sometimes play with think it sounds great. So does the band leader. With the java reed I sound a lot like Joe Lovano and with the regular Vandoren I sound a little more like Joe Henderson. An east coast sound. My shiny black Cannonball Stone Series sax makes it even darker with just the right amount of light overtones especially with the Java.

A Beautiful Mouthpiece...

By

Comments about Selmer Paris Soloist Tenor Saxophone Mouthpieces:

I was given a Selmer Soloist years ago by Joe Henderson; which I still own today. Lately it has been leaking the sulfur from it though so I decided to purchase a new one, I purchased the H facing. This new model is not exactly like the vintage one I was given; quality has changed since 50-years ago, but it is very nice. I have played many mouthpieces throughout the years; Dukoff, Berg Larsen, Runyon, Beechler, I have settled on this mouthpiece and an Otto Link New York for that extra brilliance that only metal gives, the Selmer Soloist is one of those mouthpieces made for those who truly know how to shape their tone into what they want. I use Alexander Superial DC 31/2 with an Oleg ligature and play on a P. Maurait 67R Tenor. This setup has given me the power I need for Gerald Albright when needed and the smooth lushness of Stanley Turrentine and Joe Henderson when needed; of course I sound different; I am not them and everyone's morphology and embouchure is different, but it has allowed me to have any tone I want. This mouthpiece is beautiful and has a very wide palette of expression depending on your technique and talent. It can be very dark, in the middle of the road and even very bright, once again depending on the talent you bring to the table. For those who do not like metal mouthpieces, I highly recommend this mouthpiece to anyone looking for a great all around ebonite mouthpiece. It will certainly get the job done for you.

Cleaner than vintage Soloist!

By 

from USA

Comments about Selmer Paris Soloist Tenor Saxophone Mouthpieces:

I got the E facing (.95 - .100 I think). It replaced a 1962 C* Selmer Soloist that was getting pretty grungy. (Therefore this is "cleaner"). At first, the larger tip was harder to play. Changed to a La Voz medium soft and it sounds pretty much like my older rubber piece. The vintage soloist line is known for ease of use and the ability to give different tonal qualities depending on the player. That's what they're aiming for here in the newer Soloist model. And despite popular opinion, lots of great jazz has been played on hard rubber pieces. I still have to put on a metal piece to wail the best, but this one gets a bit closer than my C*, in case I don't want to change. And it does not have any of that metal shrillness. This would be a good choice for someone who plays a variety of music and does not often find it necessary to cut through loud guitar amps to be heard.

Amazing mouthpiece

By 

from Illinois

Comments about Selmer Paris Soloist Tenor Saxophone Mouthpieces:

I bought this mouthpiece after hearing about how good the S-80's are. I decided on this and haven't regretted it; Amazing tone quality which makes a crystal clear sound. I recently switched from a low end mouthpiece that couldn't keep up with my abilities. This mouthpiece is in a class of its own. The Soloist is great for jazz. I just slap on a Vandoren Java and get a great sound. Not too dark but not too bright. As a classical mouthpiece it's also great. I get quality I've never heard of with this and traditional Vandorens. I was not expecting this much of a difference between what I had to this mouthpiece but this mouthpiece has some power. My dynamics have also greatly improved. This mouthpiece can play nice and soft or over the entire band. I can play every note with ease even in the altissimo registers. Everyone I know has commented on how good my tone is and how my playing has improved. This is a must buy.
