Easy blowing, warm and dark. I wanted something dark for soprano to tone down the high pitch. Low Bb comes out effortlessly. Its very even with intonation and I'm enjoying it so far. Got the Smoky in a 7 tip opening and I play a V16 3 reed. Takes a bit of power to blow, but the tone is worth it
Soprano Originals Saxophone mouthpiece - Smoky
Having already owned several Syos tenor mouthpieces, this is my first soprano mouthpiece and I am very satisfied. Very good response, warm sound and good intonation.
Hello to the Syos team,
I am very satisfied with the mouthpiece. It responds easily and produces a nice sound.
Currently, I am still testing a few different reeds, Legere Signature, Legere American Cut, Fibracell.
Do you have any other advice for me?
Dear Wilfried, we are really happy you like the mouthpiece! Our customer support will get back to you shortly :)
innovative work of art, très elegant, a pleasure to play on my sax

WHAT IS SYOS?
THE GAME CHANGER
Syos stands for Shape Your Own Sound. The technology and the science behind our saxophone and clarinet mouthpieces come from years of research in acoustics at Ircam, the worldwide reference in terms of sound technologies .
The meeting between Pauline, PhD in acoustics, and Maxime, PhD in auditory perception, started the creation and development of a new and original way of crafting instruments.
Using proprietary material SCAL3D we craft mouthpieces with the highest degree of precision, with improved resistance and durability and the largest choice of chamber geometries, baffle types and colors on the market.
Made in France, Syos mouthpieces are played by an ever-growing roster of artists worldwide.
Syos ships to most of the countries in the world except those of South America and Central America, Iran, Nigeria, North Korea, Sudan, Syrian Arab Republic, Turkey and Russia.
As the mouthpieces are made-to-order, please expect a manufacturing time ranging from 3 to 5 days. The delivery time then varies depending on the destination country and if you choose an express or regular shipping.
