V5 Series Mouthpiece
These mouthpieces features a smaller than normal bore and a flat baffle, very much like a traditional mouthpiece from the saxophone?s creation. This gives a tone that is very infrequently too harsh or shrill but rather gives a pleasant and rich tone. The medium sized chamber gives a full and rounded tone but also offers a core of sound which gives the saxophone its expressivity.
This small bore mouthpiece offers accurate intonation and a clear articulation across all the range. Because of the small bore, the resistance makes the instrument easy to play without using a huge amount of air. This means that slightly more effortless playing can achieve a wonderful timbre and a superb richness of sound.
