Soprano Saxophone Mouthpiece Sound Samples
At Madison Saxophone we love Otto Link, Meyer and Selmer mouthpieces! These mouthpieces represent the standard in the saxophone industry. All three companies have kept (for the most part) the same basic design over the years. Although, at times, each company incorporated slight changes in their basic design (slightly more baffle, higher floors, slightly larger or smaller chambers) which resulted in a different sound and feel.

Notes on the recording: The sound samples were recorded with a Yanagisawa soprano saxophone, Selmer Mark VI alto, tenor, baritone saxophone, and La Voz medium reeds or Roberto's Winds 2.5 Medium reeds. The tip openings on the mouthpieces ranged from .058"-.062" for soprano, .065"-.075" for alto, .090"-.100" for tenor and .110"-.120" for baritone. The microphone was a Electro Voice Re20. The examples were recorded over a period of five years and the recording levels/reverb amount vary slightly from sample to sample.
