    This is my first "real" recording with the M60 - at least it's a real song. I don't have a good mic, yet - I used a very old Samson wireless unit that records with some hum. I used a Metalite M9 with a Vandoren ZZ 2 1/2 reed. The name of the song is "Warriors" and I'm posting it, "warts and...
  2. Multi Sax!
    I have been flip flopping saxes a lot over the last few years and I have been settled down on alto for about 2 years. I'm just starting my junior year in high school and it turns out that our jazz band (which I have been in on alto for the last 2 years) needs a bari player. We have 2 tenors and...
  3. Alto mpc
    someone on e-bay was selling these older large metalites and: What The Hell; this is a monster! and I havent even dared to go fullout yet and I am allready in need of a repaint for my house and the neighbours on my left and right! This is perfect, I have to play with (among other) 7 trumpets...
  4. Runyon ONLY
    I just wanted to post that this mouthpiece has made be so unbelievably happy. Soprano rookie here, just for fun, jam with friends here and there. I got a cheap Allora soprano from WWBW, bought a metalite M7, Rico H Lig, Legere 2.25 Tuning was all over the map, could not play with others. So I...
  5. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    I've got a metal Otto Link STM 6*, but I think I get to much spread in my tone. It sounds like a sinus, taking away much overtones. I've also got a Vandoren T25 with a great sound, dark and full bodied with some edge. So basically I've got my classical/ensemble mouthpiece all set, but I'm not...
  6. Reeds
    Hi everyone, INTRO: I play a Cannonbal Big Bell Global series with a Fat Neck. This gives me quite an open tone. But here`s the "problem" I play in a sort of a brass band, and sometimes i`m up against 7 trumpets and 3 trombones. I`m not completely alone but my fellow sax players cant play...
  7. Baritone mpc
    I play bari sax for marching band, but the problem is that I have no mouthpiece to use. I play on a metal Otto link in all other settings. So, I don't have another bari piece to use, and I can't spend any more than about $25. At first, this sounds ridiculous, but Rico offers two great...
  8. Mouthpiece Maintenance, Modification & Refacing
    Hi there, I have a alto metalite M7 and mainly use plasticover number 3. The thing is i found that the sound is so smooth/pure/clean (i hope i describe this clearly), as if it sounds like soprano sax in many smooth jazz CDs. When i tried it, the sound was like blended in, didnt stand out. It...
  9. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Hey all, I had gotten curious about why the metalites had been discontinued so I decided to write someone at Rico with some questions. Suprisingly, I got a rather fast response from them. Here was there response: "Hello Joshua, Thanks for the email. I appreciate the feedback and have...
