Words from the artist:
"My Syos mouthpiece provides the same tone as my older mouthpiece but is easier to play and the sound is more powerful and wider!"
"I played on a Theo Wane signature Mindy Abair opening 8 metal mouthpiece. I really like the sound of this mouthpiece and its design as well as the fixed ligature. I had the nice bright sound I was looking for but it projected a little too much and when I played in restaurants it bothered the audience nearby. I could play softly but it required a lot of jaw effort that was quite tiring in the long run.
I saw the video of yanick Coderre and it seemed to be what I needed.
I chatted with syos for the opening I wanted to take less open for fear of encountering the same problem as with the Theo Wane but I was advised MORE open because syos mouthpieces are easier to play.
I admit that I was a bit confused but I listened to the advice I was given otherwise why ask for advice.
I'm 3 gigs in with my syos and it's really great I can have a brilliant sound but also it can be soft and warm when I blow less in it. Really thanks for the advice and kudos for the design.
I had a little trouble with the ligature at first but I found the trick to getting it right so it's fine.
I prefer to use the metal mouthpieces because they are thinner and more comfortable for me but it's personal and I'm getting used to it. And finally I'm not a fan of the design it's a bit big and I took the gray color it looks like a plumber's pvc fitting the material is cheap.
But in the end I'm happy with my purchase".
Everything in this mouthpiece is here to help you get a big sound: big step baffle, extra large chamber, even more so if you pick a big tip opening. Be careful though, it requires strong embouchure and sufficient air flow.
Yanick Coderre 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.
