Selmer Clarinet and Saxophone Mouthpieces

When selecting a mouthpiece, it is necessary to take into account both the musician and the instrument. Although seemingly simple in shape, the mouthpiece is actually quite complex and crucial to getting good results. Poor sound is sometimes blamed on the instrument when an improper mouthpiece is really at fault. Also, a good mouthpiece can noticeably improve any instrument’s sound.

Mouthpiece Anatomy

The relationship between the chamber, baffle, bore, facing length and tip opening subtly affects musical and acoustical characteristics – sonority, fullness, volume, accuracy of pitch, and response. Any variation no matter how minor – will produce quite different results.

A mouthpiece varies as each musician varies: selecting the right one depends on the desired musical results, the player’s embouchure, and the instrument. A bad combination of mouthpiece bore and clarinet bore or saxophone mouthpipe could spoil pitch accuracy, tone quality, and response.

Players should not always choose the easiest-playing mouthpiece. A better choice is one that allows total control of reed vibrations and may offer some resistance.

Once the mouthpiece has been selected, the next task is choosing a reed. Always try to adapt a reed to the new mouthpiece’s features; a reed that gave satisfactory results with another mouthpiece will not necessarily work with this one.

When selecting a Selmer mouthpiece it is important to not only consider the physical characteristics (chamber, baffle, bore, facing length and tip opening) of the mouthpiece, but also the musical and acoustical components (sonority, volume, purity and ease of blowing). We know the selection of a mouthpiece is unique to the individual player, but below are detailed specifications to help you select the best combination unique to your desired requirements.

Henri Selmer Paris Soloist Mouthpiece for Alto & Tenor Saxophone

The Henri Selmer Paris “soloist” hard rubber mouthpieces are a modern copy of the famous model made during the 1950s. This vintage design features a long scroll shank with a horseshoe chamber that became the standard equipment with the now legendary Mark VI saxophones. The Soloist mouthpiece embodies all the qualities of a rich, easily modulated sound, which still remains centered. The Henri Selmer Paris Soloist mouthpiece remains homogeneous and warm across the spectrum of playing styles. A favorite among jazz musicians, soloist mouthpieces also allow classical musicians to play with greater flexibility. It also delivers a high degree of accuracy, particularly in the attack of both low notes and those on the higher end of the instrument’s register.
