Optimized succession of the A5-S mouthpiece

andriotti, 27.09.2016
I've played throughout the last years on the predecessor model A5-S, which has already convinced me of the playing characteristics, the quality and the sound.
The new model has a slightly larger chamber, hence the designation S + (Small Chamber Plus).
This affects several things (as I find positive):
- It can be pushed on to the cork with alto saxophones, which have a ring in front of the cork at the S-bow. This extra space is very welcome, depending on the instrument.
- The intonation is even more balanced, especially the middle C and Cis, as well as from the high D to Fis (at least on my instrument).
- The sound is still clearly focused, but gains in flexibility and warmth. The sound palette is slightly wider.
Altogether, the A5-S + is a great mouthpiece for traditional and modern jazz (perfect for Leadalto in a big band and as a soloist), but is also suitable for other styles such as funk, pop, etc.
For a classic Jazzsound I would recommend the 5er railway opening.
It possesses the already familiar from the predecessor model
Good playing characteristics (speech, articulation, dynamics, even sound over the registers, etc.).
I play it with ZZ sheets strength 3.
The difference to the previous model is also a little taste. There will surely be players who will stay with the old model.

Good sound

Pascal LR, 18.04.2018
Homogeneous beak, its round. Lack a little precision in the acute on the accuracy but nothing dramatic.
23/05/18> I rectify my assessment ... after 8 days of work on this beak more problem of accuracy in the treble ... it's ok.
