Why spend more money, if so

Jochen aus P., 02.05.2012
If the Bobby Dukoff mouthpieces are known as a 'Roaring Piece of Iron', it is by no means exaggerated to call the Rico Metalite a 'Roaring Piece of Plastic'. One should not be deterred by the habitual color of the mouthpiece, there are really nicer colors than this mouse gray. But with the color, the circle closes towards Dukoff. Not only the inner life - which has more influence on the sound than the material itself - but also the color are strongly inspired by the Bobby Dukoff D series.

If you are looking for a penetrating, harmonious sound and do not understand the mouthpiece as an investment, you will find it here. This mouthpiece is a serious alternative to others, but the 10X cost. By the way, Mindi Abair is supposed to play a Rico Metalite on her soprano ...
Now to the mouthpiece itself. The mouthpiece is due to its material extremely stable and insensitive. I moved to the Metalite M7 after a year Graftonite B5 and do not regret it. The changeover was much easier than expected, despite the significantly larger opening of the railway. It has fully met my expectations. The tone in the lower octave is simply awesome - you can play loudly and quietly, the volume is there and the overtones are clearly audible. In the upper octave, this effect is somewhat weaker and the highest notes in the M7 version require a lot of training and a good approach.

In my opinion, the most beautiful tone is associated with neutral to dark filed leaves. I have achieved good results with Vandoren Traditionals, Vandoren JaZZ and Hemke (caution, ligature low enough!). The Vandoren V16 has not worked well for me. A test with Vandoren JaVa and La Voz is still pending.

A great choice for a price of laughter.

Roberto Palenzuela, 16.11.2012
Did you buy a Chinese soprano saxophone and the mouthpiece it brings is harmful? Here is the solution.
These mouthpieces, as I said in my commentary on Baritone Metalite 7, are good looking and cheap, remembering their sound to the Dukoff D metal mouthpieces, sound aggressive with a brilliant sound and a beastly projection. I have tried many nozzles and I attest that these RICO nozzles are the best cheap option to metal nozzles. The only counter I have is the tip of the mouthpiece, all the models I have tried Rico Metalite its tip is too thick becoming a bit uncomfortable until you get used to it is clear, (in the soprano is the less you notice , Obvious, because it is already thinner in itself than one for example of tenor).

I am very satisfied with these nozzles.
