Tenor Signature Saxophone mouthpiece - Max Ionata
Words from the artist:
"The first time I played a Syos mouthpiece, I was pretty skeptical because I didn't imagine a 3D printed mouthpiece could play so well! We worked 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!"

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 8 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.
Bec avec un son précis, équilibré, plutôt chaud avec une grande facilité d'émission; je n'ai jamais connu de bec qui permettent de sortir les notes graves aussi facilement avec un timbre riche.
I am very satisfied and comfortable using this mouthpiece, the sound has more body and i can easily get the low and high register note without pressure.
Sounded just I expected, very easy blowing and big sound
I'm very happy with this mouthpiece!
Easy to play and very nice sound. Great!
I already own two SYOS mouthpieces but wanted to try a smaller tip size and as I like Max Ionata thought it was worth a try. The mouthpiece arrived quickly and met all my expectations, as many people have commented a good mouthpiece is one which gets out of the way of your playing. I feel comfortable playing all over the horn and love its rich sound, not too bright and not too dark. There is a very good review by Nick Mainella on YouTube, worth checking out. All in all very pleased.
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.
