Recently I moved from Tenor Sax to Alto Sax in a stage band. Normally for this setting I would use a Meyer #5. However, my daughter pilfered it for school band work. As an experiment I decided to try a Syos Alto Sax Steady in a 6 opening. I probably spent more time than necessary debating 5 vs 6 openings but the larger opening won in the end.
The Steady is very easy to play and gives excellent response from top to bottom. I use Fibracell #2 reeds and it is unbelievable how well this mouthpiece works. Low B ( as well as Low C# and Low B flat ) comes out smooth and clear. I can pop out altissimo notes with more ease than my Meyer ( or Dukoff or Selmer Soloist or etc... ). It is just a joy to play.
I was so impressed I got a Steady for both my Baritone Sax and B flat Clarinet. Will probably get one for my Tenor Sax at some point in the future.
In addition to the Steady playing amazing, it is also cool that they are available in so many colors. It is nice to have a splash of color on the sax line in the Stage Band. My Alto is an early 60's Mark VI and the red looks great with the honey gold lacquere.
There is a positive economic angle as well. At
It is perfect and easy to play with a soundwhich is not out of the ordinary but good
Il est parfait et surtout facile à utiliser avec un son, certes, qui ne sort pas de l’ordinaire mais bon
I had heard about the Syos mouthpieces and I was tempted to buy a Steady 7 model, and I must say that even if I was a bit adventurous as I had not had the opportunity to try a Syos mouthpiece, I am really satisfied with this mouthpiece. It is versatile and I use it for jazz as well as for brass band and it is suitable for all situations. I must admit that I would have liked to try the other models in the collection to get an idea of the differences. In the meantime I recommend the Syos mouthpiece brand which I am sure will surprise you.
satisfait de mon bec
J'avais entendu parlé des becs Syos et je me suis laissé tenter par l'achat d'un modèle Steady ouverture 7 , et je dois dire que même si je suis un peu partie à l'aventure dans la mesure ou je n'avais pas eu l'occasion d'essayer de bec Syos , je suis vraiment satisfait de ce bec . Il est polyvalent et je l'utilise aussi bien en formation jazz qu'en musique de rue et il convient à toute les situation. J'avoue que j'aurais aimé essayer les autres modèles de la gamme pour me faire une idée. En attendant je recommande cette marque de bec Syos qui vous surprendra j'en suis sur.
