An absolutely amazing jazz piece for the price.

An absolutely amazing jazz piece for the price. The Rico Royal Graftonite pieces offer great projection and an even sound at a most affordable price.

Tone Chamber Style (A, B, or C): The tone chamber of a mouthpiece is the inside area of the mouthpiece. The size and shape of the tone chamber will change the tone quality of the instrument. With the Rico Royal mouthpieces, an "A" tone chamber will give a dark sound which is best suited for concert work, a "B" tone chamber will give a little more brilliance (better for using with most bands), and a "C" tone chamber will give a lot more brilliance and edge which is great for rock and jazz bands.

FACINGS
Facing (3, 5, or 7): The facing is determined by the distance from the tip of the reed to where it first touches the mouthpiece. The bigger the facing number, the farther back the reed goes before actually touching the mouthpiece. Changing the facing of the mouthpiece will generally change the volume of the instrument. With a shorter facing (3), less of the reed is vibrating, so the instrument will tend to be quieter, with a longer facing (7), more of the reed is vibrating, so the instrument will tend to be louder.

Good for sampling, not good for playing.

Pros

  • Inexpensive

Cons

  • Difficult To Use
  • Poor Quality

Best Uses

  • Practicing

Comments about Rico Royal Graftonite Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I have 2 Ricos for tenor, and bought a couple for alto.
They don't play easy, your embouchure has to be right on.
They are good for sampling different chamber and facing configurations, only because they're so cheap.
With that knowledge you can move on to higher quality mouthpieces.
A better MPC for beginners would be the Brilart Ebolin, it's much easier to play.

Comments about Rico Royal Graftonite Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I bought and use the Grafonite B7 for Tenor sax,weekend gigs. It is an outstanding jazz mouthpiece once matched to the correct reed for your playing ability. I thought I could get the same response on the alto and bought the B5, it didn't work the same. The sound is too edgy and it blows too easy, without much resistance, making it hard to control. A larger A chamber size might work better on the alto. They are still a good mouthpiece for the money. I recommend starting with an A5 size.

A good cost effective upgrade to basic rubber

By George Hostler

from New Mexico

Comments about Rico Royal Graftonite Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

The mouthpiece arrived a couple days ago, a C7 faced one. I wanted something akin to a metal mouthpiece, with greater volume and more brightness. The mouthpiece is definitely a value add and will go a long ways for someone into jazz. About the only negative is the side that mounts onto the cork, the rim had a sharp edge and gouged the cork. To correct, I used a sharp knife to remove the ridge and chamfer it, which fixed it. Other than that, I am well pleased with this mouthpiece.
