Selmer has kind of high prices. You'll never out grow the s80 its a very traditional mouthpiece. It's basic in the fact that its very middle of the road. It's classical, but still it gives a sound that could easily be used for jazz. Maybe not at a professional level, but I know a great deal of teachers around here who still play on their C* simply because it's a very good piece. The 4CM is not a bad mouthpiece. I haven't read much in the way of reviews of it, but I have played on one. It's a very loud mouthpiece, with a little more bulk to the tone to it. I would say the C* is the better of the two to learn on.A selmer s-80 c* is like 110 bucks without the ligature, how can it be a basic mouthpiece at that price? And since the yamaha custom 4cm is made for yamaha horrns would the "cutom 4cm" be better then the selmer one? I mean the custom yami one not the regular one. And what do you mean by bright?
I'll second that. My Rousseau New Classic Alto MPC is great on my YAS-52. Very easy blowing across all registers...I personally recommend Rousseau mouthpieces. Dr. Rousseau designed his mouthpieces around Yamaha saxophones, so hence, they play exceptionally well with them.
Hm. I had no Idea. That probably explains why my usually tame YTS 23 will outplay pretty much anything I cam match it to when I've got my Rosseau on it.I personally recommend Rousseau mouthpieces. Dr. Rousseau designed his mouthpieces around Yamaha saxophones, so hence, they play exceptionally well with them.
ehhh i rocked up with a PMS Dave Guardala King hahaha. I liked it but everyone wasnt too happy.I believe the YAS-62II is a model which comes with the 4c. The custom series gets a 4CM. That being said, the 62 is definitely a bright horn, so I would stay away from mouthpieces which are also bright. E.g Jumbo java, you said that you were in High School, right? If so, your director will certainly not be happy if you show up for a classical group with a Jumbo Java and a Yas-62. I'd recommend a very basic Selmer C* s-80. A great mouthpiece that will be fine for all styles.
I'll third it.I'll second that. My Rousseau New Classic Alto MPC is great on my YAS-52. Very easy blowing across all registers...
