Excellent beak that allows both a classic sound and a jazz game
Jean-Claude822, 30.03.2013
I remembered the excellent Soloist with whom I played on my soprano some fifty years ago. The current Soloist is long shank, and for my alto Beaugnier "Special Perfect", which must date from before the war, when the tuning fork was at "la" 435 Hz, I would have needed a Spout short shank to match the current 440 Hz. So I had to shorten the tenon a few millimeters by filing it. But it is obvious that on a newer sax, foreseen for the pitch 440, this problem does not arise absolutely, because on my sax tenor, which dates from 1975, I do not have this problem with my Soloist and I Could keep the "long shank" without any problems. The sound of this beak is very round, but if you decrease the strength of the reed, it becomes brighter (= more nasal).
Obviously the musician who desires a very modern sonority, much more nasillarde, it is better that he choose a mouth intended for.

Very good mouthpiece - watch out with track opening!
Saxophilist, 01.08.2017
I ordered the Selmer Soloist in the opening E and F. I was somewhat surprised by the fact that the railway openings and the length of the railways seem not to correspond to the official data. Selmer apparently has changed this in the meantime:

The E has a web opening of 1.85mm, the F 1.95mm. Track length is at both 24.00mm.

Both mouthpieces are excellently processed (here you can see that Selmer changed the production process) and intonieren very well on my Selmer Serie 3 saxophone. The F comes to me a bit more towards the opening of the railway. I play with jazz on a Vandoren V16 blade of thickness 2.5.
Along with the D'addario Select Jazz (D6M) mouthpiece, this is currently my favorite. The Selmer has the nose on the front, the D'addario has more power and the typical Meyer sound. The sound of the soloist mouthpiece is warm and malleable, but not too loud. It is very versatile. Intonation is very good and balanced.
