Super Jazz alto mouhtpiece, easy to play and blow
Paul014, 18.11.2018
This product is well designed and very well manufactured. It seemed to play best with a Vandoren MO ligature and Forestone Hinoki MS reed, or the Rico Jazz select. It responds very well and produced a big colourful tone with excellent technical quality. It is serial numbered, a further sign of quality control. The oversized box its sold in is poor and risks damaging the facing. They wasted money on the lavish box art to. Although its a shorter mouthpiece there were no tuning issues or trouble making a consistent tone from the lowest to highest notes. Being honest I was not totally impressed on the first playing but got used to it and enjoyed using it for 2 years. Unlike some other brands it did not change colour and stink of sulphur nor seem to play worse. This is a good reliable product made from decent materials. I cannot think of a meyer or link I've tried that was as good as this ever. You can find many playing reviews on YouTube of happy owners playing jazz and big band, not one negative comment. My son used this mouthpiece aged 10 to learn alto in preference to a Vandoren Optimum (a very easy mouthpiece to control).

Very satisfied
Schlumpfine, 08.01.2017
So, after playing with the Yamaha 4C for two and a half years, my teacher has given me a new mouthpiece, which is better suited to my sound desires. After a few back and forth try, I finally ended up with this one.
I am really very satisfied - it speaks to me great, my sound sounds nicer (is of course always a matter of taste) and I come much closer to my wish sound.
Which is perhaps also interesting: The MP is quite tight, so the cork at the S-bow really needs regular cork fat, if one uses this MP.
Overall I am very happy with it.
