Vague question, again . . . soprano? alto? tenor? etc. Plus, this section is for saxophones, not mouthpieces and accessories.

I've owned Links, Yanagisawa, Runyon, and Dukoff to name a few. None worked for me as well as hard rubber, but that is SO personal that it really doesn't matter. What works for me will most likely not work for you - and THAT is consistent among most players. DAVE

I think it's a valid question if you're talking price.
What's the best all-round mouthpiece for the money , say under $100.
I got a closeout Bamber from WWBW for cheap.(forgot how much)
JD Hite for around $26 is supposed to be good.
Rico's used to be around $15 and for that price they can give you something to play around with.

Bobsax: The question was about METAL mouthpieces . . . and price wasn't part of it; neither was the size of the saxophone.

While I don't usually recommend MY mouthpieces to others, I would most likely make one recommendation for sopranino and another for tenor, etc., etc.

Can we all agree that the size of the saxophone MAY have some bearing on what mouthpiece may be involved (and what answer would be provided)? DAVE

I would have to agree that Size of the Sax, and the expierence of the player need to be questioned. The reason I say expierence, is becuase I have checked the threads he has started so far, and their seem to be alot of begginer questions. So I would deffiantly say that the players expierence should be questioned.
Few questions.
1) Expierence?
2) Horn, what are you playing on?
3) Alto, Tenor, Bari, Soprano, Bass, C-mel, Sopranino?
4) budget?
5) Style of music?

All these questions should be anwered before help can be adminstered.
