Reviews around projection (5.00 of 5)

  • Really bright sound, with fantastic projection

Reviews around tone (5.00 of 5)

  • It took a quite a bit of woodshedding to get a good tone out of this mouthpiece, but it's still bright if you're not careful
  • It makes a very bright sound and I would recommend long tones for at least a month to get used to it.

Reviews around m9 (5.00 of 5)

  • I found this M9 version a lot easier to play, and more responsive, especially in the lower register, where the M7 was lacking.

Reviews around reed (4.03 of 5)

  • It is one of those that you need to find the right reed for (2.5 VanDoren Green Java in my case) and give a second try if it does not work for you the first time
  • Honestly, I really don't like Rico reeds, so when I snagged this mouthpiece for the price I did (it was quite a bit lower than it is here
  • Sounds above average when paired with a good reed, but doesn't sound great
  • The larger tip opening allows for a softer reed if you want to play low notes as well.
  • Read remaining 6 reviews for reed

Reviews around bite (3.22 of 5)

  • Low notes and subtone are a bit difficult obtain.
  • It took a quite a bit of woodshedding to get a good tone out of this mouthpiece, but it's still bright if you're not careful
  • The tip has a taper on one side and just a nice bit of flat lip on the reed side that seems to help me out.
