"Before Syos, I was playing my Meyer 6 for 14 years. I never thought I would change it. However, when I met Pauline, told her what I was looking for in a mouthpiece, and got to try a few of these pieces for the first time, my jaw dropped. I was surprised by how familiar it felt to play on these pieces, but also have that extra boost to my sound without sacrificing the original character. After deciding on my final custom model, I knew that this would be the next chapter in my sound. Now, I finally feel free to play however I want. This company is very serious about what they're doing!"
