David Mouton - Syos

David Mouton

My new custom made mouthpieces they’ve designed for me gives me the ability and freedom now to express myself on another level! I was looking for a mouthpiece that can be as versatile as the music that I perform and Syos delivered! Thank you Pauline Eveno & the entire SYOS crew for your amazing work on my soprano, alto and tenor mouthpieces!
