This mouthpiece is offered with only one facing. This is neither an oversight nor a matter of economy. It is the result of countless experiments with professionals and students. The facing of a mouthpiece can be changed to favor most aspects of playing, such as high register, low register, brilliance, bolume, easy response, etc. But any such favor must be bought witha proportionate decrease in some other characteristic. This tends to produce an unbalanced tone quality. And because experiments on mouthpieces during the last few decades were aimed at increased brilliance and certain "edge" in the tone, the main loser in the bargain was the tone's exressive beauty. And over all the ado about facings, we have almost forgotten the interior dimensions.

 

* We are often asked to help find a ligature that fits this mouthpiece. It is much larger than your standard hard rubber baritone sax mouthpiece. We have found that the Rovner Bass Sax 4R ligature (LRBR 4R) seems to fit the best. Please select the 4R option. *
