  2. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Good day all, I recently got a Vandoren Optimum tenor mouthpiece and I would like to take the best care of it. What case/pouch is recommended and which environment should it be kept in to maintain its luster and quality? I read that it shouldn't be kept within the sax's case, although this could...

    This mouthpiece was in the case of a YTS-23 tenor that I bought and I'm trying to find out what it is. The markings are pretty well worn and getting a good photo is proving to be very difficult, but I'm hoping someone can recognize this and tell me about it. Thanks.
  4. Tenor mpc
    So I recently began playing Tenor after 10 years of casual alto playing. On Alto, I stayed with my meyer 5 ever since beginning on it so I decided that this time, with Tenor I would start with the mouthpiece process upfront. Boy o boy is the process involved. Trying with different reed...

    Seems like some pretty interesting stuff. I don’t own a tenor at the moment, so I haven’t been able to play any of their mouthpieces so far.
  6. Alto mpc
    Hey guys, I'm currently going into junior year of high school and I've been selected to be the lead alto in the jazz band and the 1st alto in wind ensemble. I'm using the Yamaha 4C that came with my YAS-52 and I've been using this mouthpiece for about 3 years now. Now I'm looking for an upgrade...
  7. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Hi all, I bought a Jumbo Java A35 in hopes of gaining a brighter, more powerful sound. For the past eleven years, I've played on a Meyer 5, but I feel I've done all I can with the mouthpiece. So I got my Jumbo Java, and my first impression isn't what I expected. There's way more resistance...

  9. Tenor mpc
    A few of my favorite players, Oskar Guojonson, Trygve Siem, and Chris Speed, are playing wooden mouthpieces made by George Pfister in Berlin. Does any one know anything about him? How to find him? How to grab one of these pieces? He seemingly has no online presence, and flying round trip to...
  10. What to Buy & Why: Mouthpieces
    Recently I bought a Tenor Selmer Mark VII, but a mouthpiece was not included. Therefore, I‘m searching for the right mouthpiece. I really like music from Kamasi Washington (I presumed that he plays a Metal Berg Larsen), but I also like the typical Jazz-sound (like Otto Link). I used to play on a...

    I currently play on a Meyer New York anniversary 6m with 3 Vandoren ZZ reeds. I play lead alto in a few bands and would like to be able to project when needed. Currently my ZZ’s allow me to do this, but the sound I get is too harsh and edgy, and the reeds are too hard and make playing quite and...
  12. Alto mpc
    A lot of popular vintage mouthpieces come in smaller tips and people tend to reface them to open them up. Think Selmer soloists, Meyers, brillharts, whatever. Looking back on the greats, especially on alto, most of my favorite players (pre 70’s) played on small tips. Desmond, Art Pepper on the...
  13. Reeds
    I’ve come across several posts where people rave about the response of old Rico brown box reeds or V-cuts. One of the reasons I’m curious is that I know Paul Desmond played on them, strength 3-3 1/2. I’m not trying to sound exactly like him or anything, but I’m certainly curious how the reeds he...
  14. Eb Alto
    So I've been playing in HS since 4th grade and am possible going to get an upgrade from my bundy ii this april. I've got my heart set on the JeanPaul AS400, which seems to be a phenomenal intermediate horn, especially at the pricepoint. That comes with everything I would, but eventually I'd like...
