Mouthpieces.

For producing a sound, a mouthpiece is as essential as the reed.

Choosing the right mouthpiece is essential, as it will determine the sound’s attack, the quality of its tone, projection and roundness. Experimenting with all the possibilities that a mouthpiece can give you will result in a large and diverse array of sounds, styles and colours.

The Makers.

Wether you're looking for a Saxophone or a Clarinet mouthpiece, wether you'd like to try a Vandoren, a Selmer or a Rico-D’Addario, wether it’s for Classical or Jazz, you'll be able to find all of them in our online store. Our extensive collection features different makers, models, openings and materials so you can find your ideal mouthpiece. A mouthpiece comparison chart is available, giving you the possibility of comparing different makers and openings, from the most basic to the most exclusive.

A perfect marriage./h2>

We'd like to remind you that different combinations of reed and mouthpiece can give you different results. For example, a longer table requires a harder reed while a shorter table will benefit from a softer reed, and a larger tip opening will require a softer reed while a less open beak would need a harder reed. Make sure you choose the right reed for your mouthpiece, so you’re able to control expressivity more dynamically.

Mouthpiece Glossary

The Table: : The flat portion of the mouthpiece that the reed sits on, and the ligature clamps the reed to. The Baffle:The portion of the mouthpiece directly behind the tip rail. The shape of the baffle determines the brightness or darkness of the mouthpiece, as well as its "buzz". The Chamber: : The open area in the middle of the mouthpiece between the floor and the bore. A large chamber produces a fat & spread sound, while a small chamber produces a more focused sound.  The Floor: The inner portion of the mouthpiece behind the baffle and before the chamber. The higher this section is the more projection the mouthpiece has. The lower it is, the darker the mouthpiece will be.  The Tip Opening: The distance between the reed and frontal rail. The larger this opening the more air one has to blow into the mouthpiece; the smaller this opening the less air one has to blow into the mouthpiece.
