Words from the artist:
"I love my Syos mouthpiece. It’s kind of scary how accurate and precise this thing is from top to bottom."
I am very happy with my mouthpiece. It plays effortlessly and is very powerful at the same time. For me, it sits in the sweet spot between being able to play with a soft and warm tone (but not too dark) and 'gritty' with lots of power. This was exactly what I was looking for.
Great mouthpiece, free blowing, powerful, and with just enough darkness, exactly as I expected it to be when I ordered it.
After listening to SYOS artists and picking the style I thought was right, I was really excited to find the Michael Wilbur mouthpiece. The sound, intonation and projection of the mouthpiece is just what I’m looking for when playing in a variety of settings.
A low and long step baffle paired with a medium chamber gives the Michael Wilbur Signature a deep, powerful and flexible sound with great playability.
Michael Wilbur plays with a 9 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.

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.
