Rascher mouthpiece question

5479 Views 9 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  kingsaxello
I have often heard that Mr. Rascher said that he was opposed to the "new" smaller chambered mouthpieces being used for classical music. Now, I understand that he said this in lessons, master classes, etc, but I have also heard that he wrote an article about this or gave a speech. I've never been able to find any concrete info about this, so does anyone have any information about where/when this happened, or was it just a philosophy that he espoused?

Rascher has written about this at least several times in different articles. I can give you more specifics about where you can find these after I get home tonight. I can give you one specific one right now, though. In the October, 1954 issue of The Instrumentalist, he has an article entitled "Thoughts About the Saxophone Mouthpiece".
Sure...drop me an email and I can send it later tonight.

A rovner lig fits Rascher mpc's just fine. That's what a lot of people (including myself) use. I really only know of a couple people that use an inverted metal lig anymore.
