  1. Baritone mpc
    I've been playing a Sumner Acousticut 3 on bari for a couple of years now, and I was wondering if anyone here could provide a little more information about it. I've checked out most of the posts here on SOTW, but there really isn't much regarding the bari mouthpieces. I know I could take it in...
  2. Alto mpc
    Ok - vintage mouthpieces are notorious for having incorrect size markings. But I always wondered if I could trust my impression that even in the newest and high priced pieces the official sizes differ a lot for the real size of the tip opening. Ted Klum's homepage says +/- 0.0015 tolerance -...
  3. Soprano, Bass and Misc. mpc
    I'm trying a Dukoff D 6, Bari Gold 6, and a Selmer Paris Classic Metal 5 mouthpiece on my soprano antigua winds sax. The Selmer seems incompatible, out of tune with itself even within the octave. The Dukoff has a sweet pop sound, but to get the notes to speak easily, I have to hold the sax at a...
  4. What to Buy & Why: Mouthpieces
    Hi everyone, This is my first post on the forum. As of yesterday I am the proud owner of a Series III Alto Buescher True Tone and have begun to try to play the saxophone. The Buescher did not come with a mouthpiece and I bought 2 heavily discounted Selmer Jazz metal mouthpieces from sax.co.uk...
  5. Soprano, Bass and Misc. mpc
    Hi there, I'm a beginner in soprano world. I got a Borgani curvy today (from 90s) and found out my tampered Berg Larsen 60/2 (which apparently has bore / chamber or even the tip opening opened up further) is giving my a bit of hard time on top C and generally speaking a bit hard to keep it...
  6. Tenor mpc
    I am a high school tenor player using a Yani 991, if that matters. My two main mouthpieces are a Selmer C*, for classical, and a yani HR 5, for jazz. On both I use a Java green box 3.5. Yes, i know those are really jazz reeds, but i don't play much classical sax (hence saxOONIST). I am...
  7. Clarinet Mouthpieces
    I am about to begin playing clarinet. I have been playing both bari and alto for about 5 years and have always want to try playing clarinet. I currently use metal mouthpieces only. Would it be easier to get the right embouchure on clarinet if I continued using metal? Are there any companies out...
  8. What to Buy & Why: Mouthpieces
    Any recommendations for a good++ mouthpiece for Jazz with a small tip opening? Amanda is using a C* and it's good for classical but her private teacher recommended she get a 'Jazz' mouthpiece. She is playing a Yamaha YAS-61 Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
  9. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    I currently play the super Gonz II #8 ( 115 ) and want to try a Silver Shocka. They only have a #8 in stock which is 100 in there facings, and this is a Med/Large chamber? How is big a jump going to affect my playing...harder reed? How about ability to clearly hit the highs and lows? Should...
