The more I play it, the more I like it

Was skeptic at first, but now this is the first mouthpiece in 6 years that I like more than my old Meyer. It can do everything my old mpc can do, and I no longer struggle to cut through in a big band. Return policy makes it worth a try at least.

Simply Great!

Performs very well!

Great job

Love that fact you never have to soak the reed initially , just play

Ténor Smoky

J'ai mis quelques temps à apprivoiser Ténor (Yanagisawa) et Smoky (en blanc, ça pète !).
Le choix des anches est également important.
A présent, j'ai trouvé le son que je recherchais avec une émission relativement facile, mais toujours un peu fragile.
Il reste toujours à travailler.

super !

Comme un nouvel instrument

Je suis très content de ce bec qui produit le son doux et mat recherché. De plus, il élargit la palette dynamique de l'instrument, facilitant l'émission notamment dans le registre pianissimo souvent employé quand je joue des ballades.
Accessoirement, combiné à la sourdine Saxmute et l'anche Légère "french cut", il est facile de rester dans une faible pression acoustique quand je veux travailler sans déranger les voisins... Ce qui donne à ce bec un intérêt supplémentaire pour l'étude.

Reed holder

Reed Holcers

SYOS reed holders hold the reeds securely while allowing them to be effortlessly removed even if they are stuck. They also keep the reeds free from staining unlike many reed-holders which promote blacck dirty looking marks. Get the coloured reed holders avoiding the black (if they still make them). The variety of colours allows for colour-coding if you use multiple mouthpieces.

Très bien

Anches 2,5 et 3 Conformes à mes attentes pour sax ténor.

Excellent mouthpiece.

I found the perfect result with smooth and clean sound

Great reeds, great company to deal with

I love these reeds! I also really appreciate Syos. They know how to do business and treat the customer right. I would never hesitate to purchase from them. They are great.

Get to know the mouthpiece

I bought a Todd Marcus Bass Clarinet SYOS mouthpiece.....Was looking for something with lots more projection than a Vandoren B44. Reading the other reviews and checking out Todd's live videos, I liked what I was hearing and reading. I've played many styles of music over 35+ years, predominantly jazz, Latin and a few others mixed in. I was previously using Java #4 green box tenor sax reed on my B44 Vandoren and struggled to be heard in a jazz combo/big band scenario.

When I received the SYOS mouthpiece I struggled to even make a sound, was producing squeeks everywhere...I was confused and was considering a refund. However, I came back to the SYOS a few days in a row, gradually dropping reed sizes. I'm now playing on a #2 Vandoren Blue box OR #2 Legere Signature......And am getting what I wanted. I get So much more projection with an increased dynamic range (double). I can't imagine going back. Has cleared up the fuzzy notes on my Wooden LeBlance Bass Clarinet. I Love it...Recommended....Expect to Drop a couple of reed sizes.. Be Patient.

Excellentes

RAS, les anches remplissent parfaitement leur fonction !
Produit excellente

It's perfect for everything I needed. Boosts my power and gives me increased range. Overall one of my favorite mouthpieces to own.

Great all-rounder

I bought this after drinking beer and watching Tivon Pennicott play on this mouthpiece. I was convinced that if I bought this then I could sound like him. When was sober I regretted ordering it and nervously waited for it to come. But I was not disappointed! I do NOT sound like him, but I am delighted with this mouthpiece. It is very easy to play and delicious in the lower register. But it still has power when pushed and a nice little edge. Is this due to the secret ripples inside? I’m going to stick with this for some time and get to know it. Also…amazing value!

The Best Soprano Mouthpiece

I am a 86 year old retired musician and have not played for a long time.
Last year I decided to take up the soprano again and tried a couple of top
brand mouthpieces but I was not a 100% happy. I came across SYOS 3D
printed mouthpieces on Dan Forshaw YouTube channel and thank's to him
I decided to try the steady with a 7 tip opening, Incredible that is only way I can describe it it is the best mouthpiece I have ever used on a Soprano Sax
The steady gives you a full dark sound but also bright and power when you

need it.

très facile, la seule difficulte yrouberej

Très satisfaite

J'utilise mon nouveau bec Syos signature Yanick Coderre pour alto, chaque jour depuis sa réception. J'avais un meyer ouverture 5 qui était bien aussi, mais le Syos est bien plus facile à jouer. Je l'ai pris en ouverture 6, j'aime le son un peu plus brillant et la bonne projection. J'en prendrai certainement un pour mon ténor.

Young and Old

I am young as a player if you count up the hours. I’m old though- 66- and I’ve had a flute nearby since I was a 17. Around 30, I got my first sax. One or another of those has been close to hand too. But I’m a terrible practicer and I play along with records. It adds up after awhile though- you don’t put in that many hours playing without becoming a very good listener. I had an Otto Link to start my soprano adventure. It was okay. That was the problem. I kept seeing ravines about SYOS so I began asking them which one to get. When I said that what I was after was “character”, Spark was their immediate reply. I know that as my capabilities grow, this mouthpiece will grow with me. It has that”core” that emerges as I warm up. (Long tones, long tones, long tones!). One teeny nitpick- these 3D printed products have a texture to them and I understand it would be too expensive to polish them smooth. I was concerned initially that the reed wouldn’t seal well on the table. It hasn’t been a problem at all. I’m
very happy. I can tell I’m happy because I’ve stopped shopping for soprano mouthpieces!

A very good mouthpiece

I was a little bit not shure about the quality of this mouthpiece but I was very suprised how easy I could play with it. Easier than other more expensive ones. It gives a very steady and modulable sound. I'm really happy with it.

Replacement of Selmer Metal

I tried so many mouthpieces, but I always came back to my old Selmer Metal C. The Parthenopem is the first one, that gives me the clarity of the old Selmer and then the bit of more warmth that I hoped to find.

Parfait

J'aime ne plus avoir à visser quoi que ce soit. Parfait sur mon bec syos. En même temps, l'inverse aurait été étonnant. Perfect fit avec mon anche légère. C'est moins le cas avec mes vandoren qui sont un peu plus épaisses. La ligature ne va pas aussi loin mais laisse vibrer l'anche dans son intégralité. Je pinaille un peu. Le produit est bon et à bon prix.

Bec puissant et chaleureux

Un bec au son chaleureux et puissant , avec la facilite à jouer dans le registre aiguë et garder un don homogène sur l’étendu du spectre sonore et jouer “smooth"dans les graves et Groove tendu dans les médiums aiguës et sortir les harmoniques sol à do aisément.

Ottimo, bella dinamica bel suono
