SR Technologies Legend ebonite mouthpiece - Soprano Saxophone
- in stock
The SR Technologies Soprano Legend Hard Rubber mouthpiece is designed about the polycarbonate model of the same name, Low baffle, large chamber, round throat and wide window produce a warm, flexible tone sustainable from pianissimo to fortissimo in all registers. Seem to be particularly stable when it comes to intonation too…
A very strong piece on soprano. Extremely big sound, very easy blowing throughout the horn. The overall response also felt quite dark, thickening up the tone of the sop nicely and helping counter any thinness at the top of the horn
For anyone doubling on larger horns its worth noting that the Legend has an extremely large profile so should probably make life easier if alternating saxes…Jules@sax.co.uk

SR Technologies Mouthpieces
We came across these mouthpieces through the recommendation of professional players. I wasn't sure how the polycarbonate resin material would effect to overall tone. My previous experiences of plastic based materials have been disappointing. But what a sound! Bright, edgy but still with a great rich tonal core; it is incredibly free blowing and responsive. My personal favourite is the L-85, the slightly larger tip opening gave helped create more body to the tone. Plus if you get caught by some trigger-happy trombone players, it doubles as a small bullet proof vest! But seriously it is great for funk and lead work, bring it on Maceo Parker!
Hand cut from top quality German ebonite to reproduce the tone & response of the much sought after vintage Meyer mouthpieces. Nice soft undertone with a massive amount of power when pushed. Enough to compete with most metal mouthpieces. The greatest dynamic range of any we've tested and our favourite ebonite model.
The SR Alto Legend and L-85 mouthpieces are based on the design of classic "New York" mouthpieces. The "Legends" are identical except for tip opening. The Legend tip opening is .078 inches and the L-85 tip opening is .085inches. The Titan has a .076 inch lay with a slightly raised baffle for faster response & brighter sound.
