You don't get specific mouthpieces that are best with a specific saxophone. Some people might argue with that, it's just my opinion. In some cases it's important to match a mouthpiece to a horn but this is mainly relevant in regard to vintage saxophones and modern mouthpieces which can have intonation issues on older saxophones.so is there a mouthpeice that is perfect for the sound of a yas 23 to make it sound jazzy?
We don't use snail mail and perfect cursive handwriting to communicate anymore like you did back in 1863. Someone ought to introduce you to texting. It's kewl!You're not a beginner? Really? How about using a little punctuation and a couple more upper case letters in your posts.
You may be taken a little more seriously.
Ah, but do you know it's "his" rather than "her"?Do you know if his native language is english?
I agree with you on thins one. The excessively brightness of the yamies will be, probably, a huge concern to you.yas23D: I'm from the write clearly, concisely, and correctly school of thought - we are not texting here. But, to mouthpieces and the YAS23 alto saxophone . . . I've found every 23 that I've played to be exceptionally bright, but decent saxophones for the price. So, I would select a mouthpiece that is warmer and less-bright to deal with the natural "edginess" that is the YAS23.
What would that piece be? Only you can make that choice because we all achieve different sounds and results from mouthpieces. I have mature saxophone chops and I prefer a Selmer S-80 C* (with a synthetic reed) or a Don Sinta (no model designation) with a #2 ZZ reed, or a Meyer 6S-Medium Chamber with a ZZ #2 reed, but that's just me. I use those pieces on all of my altos and they work just fine for me. I'll bet that if I put one of those on your 23, they would work well with it.
You can also change your sound by changing reeds. At today's prices, it won't be cheap - you'll need to buy full boxes to adequately evaluate a brand, strength, and cut (mainly because cane reeds are natural products and vary widely even among similar reeds), but in the end, it will be worth the price and time. A different reed can put some edginess in your sound (or vice versa). DAVE
