Great mouthpiece

Andrew6481, 09.03.2014
I play mostly Jazz, using a 7* tip opening. For a sax quartet I am in I found this mouthpiece to be too loud and too much effort (classical repertoire). After doing some research I decided to buy a Vandoren TL4 mouthpiece. It's perfect, not too loud but has presence if pushed, a nice pure clear quality too it, not stuffy like some classical mouthpieces. Highly recommended, and played with some Vandoren blue box 3 reeds. I can imagine some might find this a little bright for classical. Also worth trying is the TL3, very similar but better for those who want a smaller tip opening and even less volume.

Fine

Horst D., 10.07.2015
One step forward.
If you have played the Yamaha, Rico or similar cheap plastic mouthpieces, the sun can rise.
The sound is pleasantly round and can be used for all styles. It also tolerates all possible leaves, so no bangs.
The easy response can be different as well.
I like the way to modulate the sound.
Of course, this is even better with larger opening, but I agree with this middle way very well.
But, man / woman should not forget that larger web openings also bring a plus volume. The necessary musculature of the lips, in order to be able to play larger path openings, must also be built up first.

So, rather a moderate mouthpiece like this. Here the intonation can be better controlled, my lips last longer and I do not have to bite.
I play an expression saxophone.
