Mariela Versola - Syos

Mariela Versola

I feel and sound like myself on my SYOS mouthpieces. I can take them on any gig or recording session and trust that they will deliver consistency, response, and flexibility. The best of parts of my other mouthpieces without their drawbacks, at a price I can feel good recommending.
