ESM Alto Sax Mouthpiece Classic MR
without ligature and capsule
We have added a new variant to our saxophone mouthpieces for soprano, alto, tenor and baritone in all “Classic” and “Jazz” series. We have provided the pin with a metal ring made of polished brass.
Tests by well-known musicians showed the following properties:
1. Significantly higher efficiency
2. Better projection and fullness of sound with unchanged energy supply
3. Rapid response and increased selectivity, which is particularly beneficial for virtuoso playing
A positive side effect of the ring is the resistance to breakage if the mouthpiece is improperly glued to a cork that is too thick. Furthermore, the "Classic" Alto mouthpiece equipped with a ring developed into an excellent tool, also for the sentence leader in the big band.
We manufacture the saxophone mouthpieces with metal rings in the most common tracks for all model directions.
We developed the 'Classic' saxophone mouthpieces together with Joachim Rinke, teacher at the Frankfurt Conservatory. For alto and tenor there are openings 5, 5 *, 6, 6 *, 7 and 7 *. Those with larger track openings are specially designed for big bands. Classic mouthpieces are also ideal for jazz musicians. They have a big tone and are strong, light and soft in the treble, even in the harmonics. The mouthpieces have a lot of substance, are intonation stable and particularly reed-friendly and offer a good alternative to metal.
The 4 * Alt Classic was specially developed for schoolchildren with Michael Unger (“Talking Sax”, music teacher).
No. 6 Alt with an opening of 1.80 mm is a recommended all-round model and is also suitable for a modern style of play. It is safe in response and intonation and has a balanced, full tone. That is what Claus Raumberger, music journalist and author of ‘Das Saxophon’, also says.
Together with Michael Unger from ‘Talking Sax’ and music teacher, we have developed a mouthpiece especially for schoolchildren - the 4 * Alt Classic with an opening of 1.50 mm. It has an easy response and is very suitable for beginners.
