No metal is needed to get a very bright and powerful sound. With a high step baffle and medium chamber, the Spark for Tenor is free-blowing, with a clear sound that travels far!
I really like the Spark. I ordered a 7 and it's very easy to play and my intonation is better than the old Dukoff 6 (metal) that I've played on for years. It's a great overall sound, but I'm also going to try out a brighter mouthpiece and see which I like better.
My soprano mouthpiece is a Scott Paddock signature model, and I love it! I was very intrigued by the new line of original mouthpieces and I was looking for one for my tenor, that is why I chose it
You guys seriously have to try SYOS mouthpieces. I don't have anything more to say. They are phenomenon. Period.
Great team, very attentive and excellent advice for choosing a mouthpiece. I was hesitating between 2 openings, I took the most open... regretting my choice, I was able to exchange without any problem!
Don’t hesitate to order your next mouthpiece from Syos! 5 days after ordering we received it and our son loves how his vintage Martin Tenor plays and sounds!

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.
