Staff Review

Made from a unique ebonite/resin blend, these mouthpiece seem light and fragile but they play like monsters. Whilst extremely free blowing, the projection on offer here is huge. Aimed directly at those looking for the coveted Selmer Soloist, the sound is focused and rich with harmonics. An advantage that I felt this mouthpiece had over the Link copy AIZEN make was its versatility. When blown normally I got a warm fuzzy sound with crisp edges, a la Joe Henderson, but when I pushed it a bit more the sound became much more robust and hard hitting. I tried a 7* for this test and found the tip felt surprisingly small so those looking for a more resistant set up may want to try a tip opening or two larger than usual.  Matthew - sax.co.uk
