Yamaha Custom Ebonite Mouthpiece - Soprano Saxophone
Yamaha's ebonite mouthpiece seems to be designed with a classical agenda in mind; Large chambered and with a narrow tip (check the numbering system used here- even the higher numbers are quite small in comparison with most other makes). Their default tone comes across full, rounded and without significant edge or brittleness.
Excellent high quality ebonite mouthpieces as supplied with Yamaha Custom saxes.
Supplied without cap and ligature. We recomend a Rovner or BG ligature.
For a first upgrade, or more advanced playing in a clean/classical style, the Yamaha custom is well worth considering. These 'pieces are large chambered for a full tone and come in relatively narrow tip openings for ease of playing. Customs are one of the easiest soprano mouthpieces to work with, nicely in tune & full sounding throughout the registers. Controllable, and warm, they serve well as a 'blank canvas'- freeblowing and effortlessly expressive without too much of it's own character colouring a player's sound.
