Mouthpiece Advice

Almost all student saxes are supplied with a very basic plastic mouthpiece, many of which are poor quality. If you want to start your sax playing career on a classy hand made ebonite model from the World's leading manufacturer then a Selmer (Paris) S80 is a great option. Just ask your teacher! Easier to blow, improved tuning, better tone and more dynamic. Choose the smaller size C*.

Small tip openings make for an easy blow but restrict the tone & dynamics quite severely as you develop your embouchure. To continue progressing you need a wider tip opening and a size E is ideal as your first "really good mouthpiece,".  To ease the transition it is fine to step down a reed strength for a little while, until you get used to your new mouthpiece. Ultimately you will find it easier to blow with improved tuning, better tone and dynamics. Sizes F, G & H are for more advanced players.
