Pure sounding excellence.
Anonymous 30.03.2016
I bought the 'Concept' last April (2015) as an alternative to the Selmer S80 'B' I had used for most of my soprano performance during the past twenty years. At first the slightly greater width, designed to help facilitate the change from alto/tenor to soprano when doubling, felt odd and I was also surprised that my Vandoren Classic 3 felt very soft considering that, on paper, there appeared to be little difference between the facings or tip-opening of these two mouthpieces. Once I changed to a Vandoren Classic 3.5 reed things started to work as they should.
On my Yanagasawa Elimona soprano (1992) this mouthpiece sounds very pure and 'classical'. Response is lightning fast, facilitating crisp articulation when required but also allowing long, seamless, legato passages where the notes just flow, effortlessly. The timbre is equal over all registers and I also feel that the intonation has improved. The altissimo register speaks freely as do low 'pianissimo' passages. I consider this mouthpiece to be fantastic for the Classical and lighter styles of Jazz that I normally play but it might not have the presence and power required when a more aggressive performance is required. Yet again the Thomann price was far the best - thanks!

Got this with FL XL GD ligature for SC992. The tone is so sweet, the piece easy and free blowing and can project if you want. I had tried the Concept in person before buying. It's so comfortable. I'm satisfied with it but wish it came in different (bigger) tip openings.

Nicht nur für Klassik
KHHS 06.03.2017
Ich hätte nie gedacht, dass ein so enges Mundstück etwas für mich wäre (habe bisher ein Otto Link 7 refaced gespielt), aber aufgrund guter Rezensionen und aus Neugier habe ich es dann doch probiert. Ich verwende dieselben Blätter (Hemke 3,5 evtl. 4) und Ligatur (Rovner dark) wie bisher.
Die Klangfarbe ist über den Tonumfang konsistent: für Klassik super, für Jazz nicht immer ideal. Dennoch spiele ich das Concept jetzt ausschließlich, denn es erleichtert die Ansprache und Intonation deutlich. So kann ich mich mehr auf andere musikalische Parameter konzentrieren, was dann wieder auch im Jazz die Flexibilität zurückbringt. Der typische Sopran-Charakter kommt mehr zur Geltung. Aber auch ein Paul Desmond-artiger Ton lässt sich sehr gut machen. Im Vergleich zum Link ist die Intonation insgesamt ausgeglichener und der Ton in der höchsten Lage runder und voller. In der tiefen Lage (C abwärts) spricht das Link noch etwas besser an, aber das ist vermutlich auch eine Frage der Gewöhnung.
