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.
So often in soprano mouthpieces one is forced to choose between ease of intonation and range, depth and control of timbre. How can you sing if there is just a fixed shape to your sound? My Dayna Stephens mouthpiece has allowed me to whisper or scream without losing control of a focused dark sound that can become challenging in the smaller instrument. Working inside a shorter standing wave also typically becomes challenging for intonation when you feature a "phat" sound for your aesthetic preference. This mouthpiece responds effortlessly with my voicing and I can achieve good intonation even with wide intervals and with my early apprenticeship on a new member of the saxophone family. Thanks so much for letting me get drawn into the sound, and learn to sing on the soprano. Bravo!!
Nachdem ich einige verschiedene Mundstücke von Syos ausprobiert hatte, bin ich bei diesem Mundstück angekommen und war vom ersten Moment begeistert. Es ist wie gemacht für mich, ohne dass ich jetzt sagen könnte was genau das Mundstück perfekt macht.
Ich spiele es (tip opening 6) mit Vandoren Java Red (3) und einer Ligatur von Rovner (dark).
Und genau diese Konfiguration hat alles verändert. Meine Intonation sich deutlich deutlich verbessert und meine Töne sind stabiler und stimmen viel besser über den gesamten Tonumfang. Die hohe Randlage mit den palm-keys fühlt sich nicht mehr anstrengend an und klingt auch nicht mehr dünn. Insgesamt hat es für mich die richtige Balance zwischen Widerstand und Power. Dabei klingt es nie blechern schrill oder näselnd.
Für mich also ein Volltreffer und der Kontakt und die Abwicklung bei Syos war erstklassig.
I have an old conn stencil soprano and could never quite get it in tune. Tried mouthpieces after mouthpieces. Finally. This pieces make it easier to play and the tone that it gives is amazing!
Once again I have trusted SYOS and bought a MP . This time for my soprano.
It was a very good idea.
It sounded great, effortless blowing, just what I was looking for to take the edgy metallic sound off my playing.
The SYOS crew were very supportive and they didn’t let me down. Great costumer support!
I’ll be buying again!
Soft, pleasant and somewhat dark. Fixed my perpetual intonation on the soprano. For once, I’m playing in tune!
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.
