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.

Prima
Horst D., 10.07.2015
Ein Schritt nach vorne.
Wer bisher die Yamaha,Rico oder ähnliche günstige Plastikmundstücke gespielt hat, für den kann die Sonne aufgehen.
Der Klang ist angenehm rund und für alle Stilrichtungen einsetzbar.Es verträgt auch alle möglichen Blätter,also keine Zicke.
Die leichte Ansprache können andere auch.
Mir gefällt am besten, wie man den Sound modulieren kann.
Natürlich geht das mit grösseren Bahnöffnungen noch besser aber mir sagt dieser Mittelweg sehr gut zu.
Aber,Mann/Frau sollte nicht vergessen ,dass grössere Bahnöffnungen auch ein Plus an Lautstärke mit sich bringen. Die nötige Lippenmuskulatur, um grössere Bahnöffnungen spielen zu können, muss ausserdem erst mal aufgebaut werden.

Also, lieber ein gemässigtes Mundstück wie dieses.Hier lässt sich die Intonation besser kontrollieren, meine Lippen halten länger durch und ich muss nicht beissen.
ich spiele ein Expression Saxophon.

Klassisches Mundstück mit dem man auch ein wenig Druck machen kann
Helmut aus S., 18.03.2010
Ich spiele normalerweise auf meinem Tenor(YTS 875EXB)ein guardala studio und ich liebe dieses Mundstück. Nur kann ich mit diesem mundstück leider nicht mit meinen schüler ensembles mitspielen da man sonst von den schülern leider nichts mehr hört. Somit war ich auf der Suche nach einem Mundstück das vom Barockquartett bis zu Swing&modernen Stilen einsetzbar ist.

Nachdem ich ziemlich alles probiert habe was es auf dem markt gibt war das TL4 das absolut beste für meine Zwecke. Super leichte Ansprache in allen Registern- auch im tiefen bereich ist ein ganz sauberes piano möglich.

Der dynamik bereich nach oben hin ist ok,aber natürlich nicht mit jazzmundstücken vergleichbar.
Intonation ist super,und nachdem ich nun auf Alt,Tenor und Bariton dieses Mundstück spiele fällt das wechseln unheimlich leicht.
