Berg Larsen Metal Tenor Sax Mouthpiece
The tip opening is the distance
between the tip of the reed and the tip of the mouthpiece, measured in thousands of an inch. Generally speaking, the wider
the tip opening, the softer the reed that may be used. For most beginners a narrower tip opening will result in a clearer
tone and more consistent intonation. 90: Close / 95-100: Medium Close / 100-105: Medium / 110-115: Medium Open / 120-130:
The degree of edge or brightness the player obtains is dictated by the size of the tone
chamber. The more 'baffle' that is built into the tone chamber, the more edge the tone will have. A '0' tone chamber will
have the most edge and a '3' will have a more mellow tone.
The term 'SMS ' or 'M' indicates
the choice of facing. The SMS, or French facing is usually shorter with a steeper curve. The 'M' or American facing is slightly
longer with a flatter type curve.
Berg Larsen stainless steel mouthpieces are known for increased life and their
diverse tonal quality. Due to the hardness of the metal and the highly reflective finish, they are able to maximize projection.
With the many combinations of tip opening and chamber, these mouthpieces can produce whatever tone you are looking for, from
bright and edgy to smooth and dark. Includes cap and ligature. Mouthpieces are SMS (European Facing) unless otherwise specified.
