Customer Reviews

Not Just A Student MouthpieceI am using this as a professional mouthpiece. I have been told by those that hire me they like my sound. My range is two octaves higher than the high Eb. I have tried expensive mouthpieces and they are excellent but since I am not as rich as some people I can't afford $300.00-$700.00 for a mouthpiece and since I have been playing this Rico I have lost all motivation to put the money aside for something that can be lost and is devastatingly hard to recover all because I got use to playing something expensive. Eventually the musician is not just the customer but someone who has to pay dues to get where they are. I follow the k.i.s. method when I practice and get use to the same mouthpiece, and the same horn. It makes things easier for me and my response is quicker because of familiarity.5Inexpensive high baffled piece that works!A real bright, edgy piece. At a tip opening of .095, it's not too big for intermediate players to blow. If you want to try out a high baffled piece, but don't want to spend a lot of money experimenting with your sound, this is a great buy! The more experienced player, may be interested in the M7 (.105), or the M9 (.115)5Good mouthpiece for the priceSurprisingly good Mouthpiece. 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. I use it for a King Super 20 tenor and a Buescher C-Melody tenor, with a Rovner Ligature. It has good projection, tone balance in all registers, and just the right amount of resistance to make playing enjoyable. I also have the M5 in alto and soprano, and work well for those too.The odd gray color is not my favorite, but I can live with it, I guess!5Inexpensive - Bright - PowerfulMy take on this mouthpiece is that if you are like me and you use Meyer mouthpieces like the M7, this Rico M9 is an entirely different animal. This seems to be "difficult" to control, probably because I am no expert. I imagine that the variety of sounds I can get out of this piece is wider than my go-to mouthpiece. It has a very different baseline timbre than the Meyer. It took me about 30 minutes to adjust to it so that I could simply play a full range of notes. Like other people have mentioned, a softer reed could help. I had to pull out a Rico Med. reed to get a full range, and could only hit low C at full volume.5Why spend huge $$$ when this is available?I'm truly astounded by the projection, medium-bright sound, and feel of this piece. I bought it for my vintage c-melody and it works perfectly with a Rico Jazz Select 3S reed and off-the-shelf brass ligature. Tons of power when needed, but good subtone as well. Great response from bottom to altissimo. For around $25, you can have a mouthpiece that I think is the equal of many more expensive jazz pieces.5Surprisingly good for the price!For the price, this mouthpiece has a surprisingly good sound. I read reviews on it prior to purchasing and they said similar things. I would recommend this for beginners as well as seasoned players.4Loudest mouthpiece I've ever had...Loudest mouthpiece I've ever had, cuts like a knife at the gigs. Plays easy with a soft reed. Tone is secondary.5Not The OriginalStill a very good mouthpiece, but not the same as the original issue. According to Rico the term "Metalite" references a proprietary material and design intended to mimic the qualities of a metal mouth piece while being lighter, and cheaper. The original was made from tough Polycarbonate composite with a textured "sand cast" surface, but the new issue has the shiny appearance of a Bakelite type plastic. Aside from aesthetics, a textured surface is not as vulnerable to scratches and is easier to handle. I suspect that the phrase "Durable; will not chip or crack" in the ad is from the original mouthpiece, and there still may be truth in it, but I notice that the strongly stated Lifetime Warranty that dominated the back of the old maroon box, is gone from the newer grey and white box. The design and dimensions of this newer issue are essentially faithful to the original. The production however, is not quite as fastidious as evidenced by a discontinuity on one rear side of the table. Still, this mouthpiece is in all ways superior to the "low cost" non-metal mouthpieces from China. At present, the Amazon depiction still shows the original product and is not an accurate representation of the current shiny product.4Great Jazz/Rock MouthpieceThis mouthpiece, at this price, really makes you wonder why any one would consider shelling out $300+ for a mouthpiece. While I would concede that such mouthpieces are better (in some ways!) are they 10 TIMES BETTER? This mouthpiece does what a mouthpiece should do: gets the sound I want, the control I want, the intonation I want. I went with an M9 model. I don't have problems with controlling it. (However, I grew up on a Selmer E mouthpiece with 4 (or 5 if I could find them) reeds.) This gives a good chops workout with a 2.5-3 reed - and all the volume you could ever want. Ok, all the volume you could ever want in an acoustic setting. If you need more, get a microphone!5Beautiful bang for the buckFirst mouthpiece I ordered the dimensions were off. It wasn't cut right. got a refund and ordered another one just like it. Dimensions are correct on this one. Cut very well. Sound is phenomenal for the price. Quality is exceptional. A real value and a real bargain to up your sound on your saxophone. Beautiful higher register and very fat lower register. You can't go wrong with this mouthpiece.5
