A small representative selection of Metal (including Solid Silver) Mouthpieces stocked for Soprano, Alto, Tenor & Baritone Saxes in many different Tip Openings.

A small representative selection of Ebonite (Hard Rubber) Mouthpieces stocked for Soprano, Alto, Tenor & Baritone Saxes in many different Tip Openings.

  

It is a fact that Mouthpieces will contribute or detract around 70% of the Sound/Tone of the Sax. The actual material, metal or Ebonite (Hard rubber) does not effect the sound as much as myth dictates.

There are basically two types of Mouthpieces: a) Straight through chamber or b) chamber with built in baffle & infinite variations on these themes.

 

It is most important to try/blow mouthpieces do NOT buy from mil order because a friend/tutor or your hero plays one. You may need a different make, tip opening etc. as your mouth is different & although Pros. Play 7 days a week & you may just play occasionally.

 

Allegro does NOT send mouthpieces or SOR basis. We sell NEW items & when mouthpieces are sent out they can be damaged plus health hazards in this age.

 

However, you try in the Shop & we will give advice ref reed strengths to match for optimum results.

Beware of mouthpiece 'Doctors' who for a large sum of money will ruin a perfectly good mouthpiece. Buy the correct mouthpiece in the first place.

 

We now list our STOCKED mouthpieces. (Subject to Manufacturers availability). The descriptions/comments are ours gathered from over 50 years of commercial playing experience.

 

Finally, we do sometimes have Secondhand mouthpieces including Bass Sax. Please ring or e-mail for current requirements.

BERG LARSEN

Although originally made in the United Kingdom Berg Larsen have now moved to Europe. Manufactured in Ebonite & Metal. They have a distinctive baffle in the chamber which projects the sound. For interest we have "Tubbys" last Tenor mouthpiece which was a Larsen Ebonite "140".in our opinion the Stainless Tenor is a super flexible mouthpiece which copes with everything including Altisimo range. Different tone chambers: 0 = very bright to 3 = mellow.

OTTO LINK

Probably the most famous Tenor mouthpiece in either Ebonite (Tone Edge) or Metal (Super Tone Master). Nearly all the past stars played this model. A straight through chamber with a big widesound.

EUGENE RUSSEAU

Ebonite Studio Models. Very distinctive smooth sound by famous player.

BOBBY DUKOFF USA

Yes, the first Mouthpiece to include a baffle. Although they look rather crude finish in the chamber & made of a "secret" Silverite Metal they have excellent intonatiion. Bobby Dukoff still alive today & producing these models.

RUNYON USA

Another old established Jazz model in Metal & Plastic. They have a unique removable baffle which gives each model two distinctive different sounds, very slim profiles.

SELMER PARIS

S/80 Models Ebonite. Very accurate in complete range. Thought of as a Classical Players choice but very flexible. Roy Willox still plays a D model for Jazz playing since his days with Ted Heath. Excellent on Sopranos. They have now recreated their famous Soloist model.

DAVE GUARDALA

Inconsistent supplies from this talented but eccentric producer make things difficult. The laser produced R&B & Super King Models for Tenor give excellent results, only one tip opening offerent. Certainly worth trying if you can afford.

BRENDAN TIBBS

Hand made Solid Sterling Silver models beautifully finished. Has been used by James Moody, Michael Brecker etc. etc. These are designed for Professional use & are worth trying.

BRILHART SELMER USA

Wide easy sound. Tubby used to use one in his Jaz Courier days. Yes, we have the photos.

LAWTON

Since Geoff died we bought the balance of his original finished stock & have a few left. Beautifully made, I played on an Alto model for many years. We are not sure if Jason, his son, will produce anymore Lawtons. He is currently "finishing" the remaining blank stocks. A very sad situation.
