  2. Alto mpc
    Hi, I have been playing alto for awhile and have been playing on a s80 c* (older model) I have been entering the realm of jazz recently and i love it. I really want to get a ‘jazz’ mouthpiece. I am really stuck in a tough decision between the daddario select jazz, meyer usa, meyer ny 100th...
  3. What to Buy & Why: Mouthpieces
    So, life long Link player here. My current piece is a GS 7* Reso. But, for my main gig, I really need something that sounds like a Berg. Ideally it would have the same size and shape as my Link, but that aggressiveness and grit of the Berg (think Sam Butera/Jr. Walker). Any thoughts about where...
  4. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Since commercially available 3D printed mouthpiece have become quite popular over the last few years, I think it's important to discuss how safe they are to use. The manufacturers gladly dismiss this topic by stating they only use materials that are certified as food safe. But the thing is, due...
  5. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    As I have started to teach beginning private lessons (most of my previous lesson students when I was in college/gigging were adults learning or high school students), I have noticed that basically every student has the same mouthpiece- a Yamaha 4C. I guess about 15 years ago when I started...
  6. Tenor mpc
    I’m looking for someone to help me identify the rough age of an older Tone Edge Tenor piece that I have. I’m aware that the straight sig. pieces were made first in Florida and then Indiana, from various moulds, and finished with differing baffles - and that the evolution of Tone Edges wasn’t...

  8. Tenor mpc
    Hey people. I'm looking for a mpc for the Tenor 66R (P. Mauriat) for these next months. What mpc works great or makes a positive difference in this sax? I want an edgier, brighter sound. As some of you may know, the 66R has this warm, dark and maybe too spread - sound. I wanna balance that...
  9. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Having purchased a Super Session soprano mouthpiece from an authorised dealer, I wondered if the rather irregular finishing (and thick uneven tip) was really 'to spec'. So I emailed Selmer customer service. Here's a picture of it: And here's the reply: Après vérification avec notre Chef...
  10. Reeds
    Tried a few different red 3's as well as some stronger reeds... Don't want to cause pains. Thanks. :)
  11. Baritone mpc
    I'm probably about to pull the trigger on a Buescher Big B baritone. Unfortunately I'm buying online and haven't played it or any horn like it. I'm getting a little worried about the vintage bari "pickle barrel" mouthpiece intonation issues I've been reading about here, where old baris only play...
  12. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    Has anyone compared these two tenor mouthpieces?: Phil-Tone The Intrepid vs Drake Reso tenor. I'm looking for a new mouthpiece and considering one of these. What is your experience on these? How do they compare in tone, responsiveness, versatility, loudness, edge and darkness of sound?
  13. What to Buy & Why: Mouthpieces
    I have been playing the saxophone for almost two years since the beginning of high school and i struggled a lot in the beginning to get rid of the airy sound. One day, I found a very beat up mouthpiece in the mouthpiece bin and decided to used it (after disinfecting it) because I had left mine...
  14. Bb Tenor
    As much as I really like my 7* Link, it doesn’t really fit every scenario I want to play in. I understand 10ms are very picky with their mouthpieces, so I figured I’d ask you guys what mouthpieces usually go well with the 10m as to avoid buying one that won’t get along with the horn. (I heard...
  15. Embouchure & Tone Producing Basics
    I'm a beginner. Many years ago I had a Jupiter alto but only took to it for a little while before moving on to a wind synth. Then, not quite two months ago, during this (four month isolated) pandemic I bought a TON of cheap saxes on Amazon. Two altos, two sopranos, and a tenor. They are all...
  16. Alto mpc
    Hi everyone! I'm currently looking at a Dukoff Super Power Chamber D6 for alto and was curious as to its validity as a legit piece and not a fake. I noticed this stamping error that I'm hoping will clue me in as to whether it's the real deal or not!
  17. Tenor mpc
    Anybody playing these? I'm playing a Four **** refaced to a 6* by Nicolas Trefeil and really like it, it did take a little getting used to
  18. Clarinet
    Anyone has any experiences with Gigliotti Advantage mouthpieces? I'm thinking of picking one up and was wondering what the differences between the A1 and the AS1 was? Thanks!
  19. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    I'm needing a mouthpiece for an alto I was recently gifted (YAS 23), and I'd like something more open and cutting than the brillhart that it came with (duh). On another note, I'm considering shopping for a new tenor. I've been without for about 8 years, and as a tenor player, I've got the itch...
  20. Tenor mpc
    Does anybody have experience with these? They are available on ebay for a hundred dollars. I wonder there's no info on the internet. Here's the reference link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/383149012481
