Search on "Spectruoso" and you should get some hits.

I had a 350SP for a while - big and fuzzy, just like Joe Lovano and his sound. <rim shot> I didn't find it flexible enough to be able to get any other sound out of it. Sold it to Littlewailer, as I recall, and he reported a completely different take on it.

That's a tenor mouthpiece, looking for soprano only, hence why I posted here.

Francois Louis SOPRANO mouthpiece reviews?

Mea Culpa. The subforum name was not visible when I read your post.

I was once interested in the sop' 'piece as the SP chamber seemed similar in design to Fred Lamberson's Fmaj7 which I enjoyed very much on my Selmer and Yanagisawa sops. My Borgani Jubilee sop, however, is not so happy with a smaller chamber volume.

the search function works well but only here

https://www.saxontheweb.net

top in the middle where it says google custom search. All the other search boxes don’t give you the results of this one.

This post is mentioning the Spectruoso Soprano

Since a few days I use the Francois Louis Spectruoso 215 Signature model with Rico Jazz Select 2S.
All I can say is that I like it very much. Tone is fat, bright and dark - I think it'll work fine for traditional, fusion or smooth jazz.
It's so easy to play, good intonation and maximum control.

The last 3 years I played on a Bari 80, which has a beautiful tone too, but darker.
My soprano is a Mark VI 130.000

I tried a SP215 soprano in the store I sometimes work in a while ago and was very very impressed. I have a Mouthpiece Café Slant Supreme on my soprano that I love but if I'll ever buy another piece to my soprano I will consider an FL. I didn't have my own reeds with me so I grabbed a V16 because I found an open box of 3s, never been into V16ns but that setup was a great match and it played amazing. To me it had a bit of resistance but in a very comfortable way.
