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.

INTRODUCING SYOS ORIGINALS
After 5 years of work with musicians around the world, we decided to create the Originals line in order to easily bring our acoustic expertise to any musician, from the beginner to the professional.
Syos Originals are a streamlined collection of easy-to-play mouthpieces for every type of saxophone and clarinet. Pick a dark (Smoky), balanced (Steady) or bright tone (Spark) and get the sound that was promised immediately.
Already after very short time this mouthpiece feels like it is part of my body - I still discover its multiple possibilities which is exactly what I need to develop my own way to express and create with my instrument
Very pleased. Finally I can play the high notes easily on my Thomann soprano.
Less fatigue, I can play for a long time.
Très satisfait. Enfin je peux jouer les aiguës facilement sur mon soprano Thomann.
Moins de fatigue aussi, je peux jouer très longtemps
A real revolution between my lips.
Une vrai révolution entre mes levres.
I do not like plastic mp's. However, this mp gives me the concert band sound I need. It is open and warm; not edgy. A very nice feature is that the overall length is shorter than most other brands, which prevents having to push the mp past the end of the cork on my curved soprano. I don't know if that is by design, but it's a nice feature. The 5 tip opening (1.3mm) is perfect for me to play soft in the bottom register and in tune in the upper register with a 2.25 Legere reed. I'm happy with it but not a big fan of the ligature. It moves my reed when I push it on, and takes too much time to keep readjusting to get the tip of the reed where I need it. I stay 4 stars, but I'm giving a 5 because customer service was good about shipping a replacement after the original got crushed in transit.
Super satisfait !! Homogénéité, confort et justesse … bien conseillé . Petit bémol sur le couvre bec peut être … pas fou .
