Another classy addition to the SR Tech mouthpiece range. This is a good 'jazzers' mouthpiece with a medium baffle and fairly large chamber, offering a big and open lower register sound while retaining a nice centred semi-dark tone throughout the rest of the range. It is similar in tone and response to the Europa mouthpiece but with a little more emphasis on the bass frequencies around the lower end of the sax. The tip opening is set up at 106 thousandths of an inch (or 7*) which is fairly regular for most jazz tenor sax players' needs.


The SR Technologies German Hard Rubber Tenor Legend mouthpiece is the newest addition to the SR line. The culmination of 10 years of product development, prototyping and evaluation, it completes the triumvirate of Legend German Hard Rubber models for soprano, alto, and tenor saxophone. Darker than the Europa, it features our own proprietary tip, rails, table, facing, baffle, chamber and throat. With the great resurgence today of hard rubber mouthpieces, it is perfect for those seeking vintage New York and Florida type mouthpieces, with unsurpassed intonation, response tonal complexity and color, harmonics, and subtone. The SR Legend Hard Rubber tenor mouthpiece has none of the tubbiness and stuffiness traditionally associated with vintage mouthpieces.


Complete with Rovner ligature and cap.



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.
