SR Technologies Fusion Mouthpiece - Tenor Saxophone
Fusion Tip Opening: .108 inches
Fusion 115 Tip Opening: .115 inches
Similar in design to the SR Tech Pro but with a significantly higher baffle, giving a brighter/punchier default tone. Excellent harmonic response- an ideal mouthpiece for fusion and R&B playing….
The Tenor Fusion and Fusion 115 are identical except for tip opening. The Fusion tip opening is .108 inches and the Fusion 115 is .115 inches. With their high baffle and large throat the Tenor Fusion mouthpieces provide the superb altissimo, responsive lows required by contemporary players.
This mouthpiece really surprised me. To look inside one might think it would sound like a Dukoff or DG King; bright and edgy. However, unlike some high baffle mouthpieces, which can sound rather thin, the Fusion retains plenty of body but still has some edge. The bottom end, was a little difficult to control, but this is balanced by effortless and responsive harmonic and altissimo register. Overall these are incredibly well-made and finished mouthpieces, and are surely one of California’s great sax secrets
SR Tech 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!
