Jeff Coffin - Syos

Jeff Coffin

My Syos Bass Clarinet mouthpiece is amazing! I previously had a Charles Bay MOM model but I had a most unfortunate accident and it broke in half after falling. Syos sent me a bunch to try and this one replaced it and I actually like the qualities of it more than the Bay! It’s versatile, it speaks quickly, it’s great for us doublers moving quickly from horn to horn, it cuts, but it has a nice organic sound with lots of overtones. What’s not to like?!? I hope you’ll try it and like it as much as I do…
