This is the best all-around mouthpiece for getting a dark, warm sound. It is appropriate for playing classical, or anything where you don't want the volume and edge of a metal mpc. It is great for practicing, because it's easy to play. I have tried this against many other plastic mpcs, and this one is so much fuller and warmer in sound, it is just a world of difference!

PERFECT!!!!!

Comments about Selmer Paris S80 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I have played on a Selmer since I first jumped to Tenor in 7th grade. I am now a Sophomore in High School. I now have two of the Selmer mouthpieces for tenor, and 1 for alto. This is the best Hard Rubber mouthpiece out there. I have a S80, Eddie Daniels (Rovner) Ligature, and I am using a 3.5-4 Vandoren reed. This is the perfect setup. However, you will want to experiment, and find the right one for you.

Excellent Classical Mouthpiece

By A.C.

from PA

Comments about Selmer Paris S80 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I purchased a Yamaha tenor sax three years ago and had been playing on the stock mouthpiece that it came with because I didn't really know any better. However, my teacher, who is a very experienced sax player, recommended this mouthpiece to me to help provide me with a richer, warmer sound. Let's just say I can't imagine why I ever played on anything else! This mouthpiece is a necessity for musicians at all levels because it provides you with a beautiful tone for classical playing. I expected it to be somewhat difficult adjusting my embouchure to this mouthpiece, but after a few days it felt perfectly comfortable and natural. I would also recommend that you purchase it off this website because of the discounted price, as this mouthpiece tends to be a bit pricey. Even so, it was well worth the money! However, if you are interested in jazz, this mouthpiece is probably not the one to try. But for classical, it's the only way to go!

If you want to take a step up, the s80's your piece

By James Skretta

from Pella, Iowa

Comments about Selmer Paris S80 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I've been playing the saxophone for 9 years now, 6 of the years on alto with a beginner mouthpiece but have been on tenor for three years now. My director recommended a C** to help my tone. The second I tried it, I loved it. Since then that's all I've used in my classical playing. On a 3.5 reed, you'll get a very dark tone that is wonderful for solo material. It's done so much for my tone as well throughout my range!!! You'll be amazed too! -- But if you're interested in jazz, definitely find something with more of an open tip.

great product!

By jonathan-p9GoP

from houston tx

Comments about Selmer Paris S80 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

Excellent performance! This mouthpiece held up very nicely considering the amount of use it was given. I played an average of 90 minutes every day and I never had any problems with wearing out or fading. I would recommend this as a perfect piece for an intermediate to expert level player. thanks again "Selmer" for delivery your customers with an excellent quality product at an excellent price!

Very nice

By Ben-sfwOs

from Indianapolis, IN

Comments about Selmer Paris S80 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I am a big fan of this mouthpiece. I bought it after two years' experience and my tone instantly improved. I had been using a Yamaha 4C, a beginner mouthpiece, and my tone instantly got better. It cut out the airy and raspy quality that the 4C had. My tone also became much more full and rich. I am now entering into my fourth year of playing. I have found heaven with this mouthpiece, Rovner Dark ligature, and Vandoren 3 reeds. I also enjoy playing on 3.5s but the sound is a little stuffier because they are so hard. It should be noted that I have a Yamaha YTS-52, a top of the line intermediate sax, that I believe is no longer in production. I note this because I have found that this mouthpiece does not improve sound on pro level horns as much as it did on mine.

This is the best mouthpiece to have for marching and concert band!

By Rebecca C

from Tallahassee, FL

Comments about Selmer Paris S80 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

This mouthpiece allows you to have a dark, deep, rich tone for any kind of playing. I bought one for high school marching band and I was amazed by the sound that it produced! You will be too with the Rovner C* S-80!

Comments about Selmer Paris S80 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I ordered the Model F because it had a "reasonable" tip opening of 0.091," a medium facing, and a large square chamber without much baffle. I figured it would be a reasonable mouthpiece to use, to suit my sound and style requirements. Not biased too much toward jazz/rock, rendering it useless for classical, or too "classical" rendering it useless for anything else, and a fuller sound than usually accompanied by an 0.091" opening. I was using a Rico Royal #B5 (0.095" opening, medium facing, medium chamber) with a 2.5-3 Rico reed (Jazz select, ZZ, Hemke, etc.). The playability and sound were good, but the sound was a little on the bright side and it noticeably thinned out below low D. It was a moderately loud mouthpiece, but this did not present a problem. In comparison, I find the Selmer S80 mouthpiece to be a good quality mouthpiece, even though the Rico is great considering that it is so cheap. S80 F playability is good, the sound is rich and full throughout the range. Mouthpiece envelops much of the cork to get it into proper tune, but not overly so. Rich full sound is maintained at every note. Intonation is very reasonable. Not quite as loud as the Rico and somewhat darker, but the tone is there. I only have a well-working Jupiter 787GL Tenor. The above observations and comparisons were made using a Jewel fabric ligature with both mouthpieces played at concert pitch and the ligature and reed properly and consistently placed. I highly recommend the S80 Model F.

A good mouthpiece to start

By Pozo

from Vinaros, Castellon, Spain

Comments about Selmer Paris S80 Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I play the tenor sax for about 4 years and this mouthpiece is good when you start. My facing is C*. Low notes are not difficult but it's hard to do altissimos. I usually play classical music, but if you prefer jazz, try another mouthpiece (like the Otto Link).
