Words from the artist:
"It's beautiful! It's blue! It has this unique sound, precise and with perfect intonation across the register. And it stays warm."
I often changed mouthpieces out of curiosity but also because in the end, even if I found a sound good, it was not my sound...
Now that I have my syos mouthpiece I think I'll take a long break
This mouthpiece sounds amazing and has a very unique sound. Couldn't be happier :-)
It's very easy to play when you find the appropriate reed. It's a pleasure to play, it makes a beautiful sound. It's not too bright, a little bit dark in the low notes. Wonderful.
At this point, this is my primary piece and it fluctuates least during cold-hot temps, of my tenor pieces. I literally recommend it to any sax player i run into.
The circular baffle and medium chamber of Sylvain Rifflet's Signature mouthpiece provides a dark and quite focused sound, with power and flexibility.
Sylvain Rifflet 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.
Artist Set Up :
Instrument: Super Balance
Reeds: Rico Reserve 3.0+
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.
