Words from the artist:
"My Syos mouthpiece is uniquely comfortable for me. I can easily access my altissimo while also blowing through my low subtone notes with ease."
So first of all I´m a huuuge Tivon fan. Love his sound, so I decided to buy this mouthpiece. Normally I play Theo Wanne Ambika 9 that I really like and has been my main setup for years, quite dark too. And decided to give a try to this mouthpiece after trying some other ones for alto and being suprised for the good. And I was super not impressed with this one (bought the 9 size), miles but miles away from my usual setup, and from other brands at the same price with kind of the same sound concept, stuffy, sonically not very flexible. Played it a few times and it´s in the closet right now.
Hi! I'm sorry you don't like Tivon's mouthpiece. It's true that this model is quite resistant. If you want a nice dark sound with no resistance you should try the Smoky.
yes! great sound and great comfort. this mouthpiece is so easy to play. you can play smoothly but with a good low register, or go for some funky parts. i'm tempted to increase the strength of the reeds because i'm no longer afraid of getting the low notes out and i'd gain more control and accuracy. i've been tempted by the formidable Tivon Pennicott.
Phenomenal experience with the wonderful people at SYOS! From customer service, to helpful website, to an amazing product! The Mouthpiece is so responsive, straight blowing, full tone and controllable! Thanks SYOS!!
I found the customer service at syos to be excellent. Though the website is very informative, I still had some questions, which were answered within minutes! Selecting a mouthpiece can be difficult and complex even under the best conditions, but syos provides plenty of guidance to help simplify the process. Shipping was prompt, with tracking information supplied.
Absolutely love it. The tone, the power, very easy to play, it was exactly what I wanted
The circular baffe and small chamber of the Tivon Pennicot Signature model offer a dark and compact sound with slight resistance.
Tivon Pennicott 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.
