Words from the artist:
"I've played hundreds of soprano pieces, and each one always had a trade-off between that "dark, core sound" that I love and managing the intonation (which is so difficult on a soprano). My Dan Forshaw Signature mouthpiece has solved that problem. The medium chamber has a well-rounded tone that performs well in jazz and classical music whilst also providing excellent tuning control. This is the best soprano mouthpiece I've ever played and I highly recommend it."
A mouthpiece with a dark and warm sound, stable and comfortable with a sligth resistance.
Dan Forshaw plays with a 5* tip opening.

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 at IRCAM, the worldwide reference in terms of acoustics and 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 designing 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.
Syos mouthpieces are played by an ever-growing roster of international artists.
