Tenor Signature Saxophone mouthpiece - Max Ionata
Words from the artist:
"I’ve to be honest, when I played the first time a Syos mouthpiece, I was pretty skeptical because I didn't imagine a 3D printed mouthpiece could play so well! Together with Pauline, we worked for a few weeks to make the perfect mouthpiece for me and my horn. This piece allows me to play all the notes I think in my mind and for the first time in my life finally, I can just think about playing music!"
I have always been exploring the origin and inflections of sound. The sax mouthpiece is like a brush to the artist. Words to the soul that get in and never get out of the heart of those who listen. Through the saxophone sound, we convey our values, our strength or our tenderness, our impetuousness or our sweetness. For all these reasons, Max Ionata, a great man I hold dear, could only make a magnificent product like this one. Thank you Max, thank you Syos.❤️❤️
Thank you for this lovely review :)
This mouthpiece has a medium but low step baffle coupled with a small chamber. It's perfect for a nice warm and focused sound with still a lot of projection.
Max Ionata plays with a 7* 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.
