    Comments about Yamaha 5C Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

    I purchased this mouthpiece to replace the poor quality mouthpiece that came with my son's Etude EAS-100 Student Alto Saxophone with Accessory Pack.
    This mouthpiece made a huge difference in his sound quality and in the ease of his playing. His fellow band members even commented on how much better he sounds, what better recommendation is there?

      Comments about Yamaha 5C Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      Bought this for my Freshmen HS son in marching band and concert band. I (we) heard that upgrading the mouthpiece can help improve sound quality and ease of play - well, we made the right choice. It's true a new (better quality) mouthpiece does improve both; and this one proved it to my son. I (the father) can also hear the difference. Our recommendation is for beginner and student players research what you can and if in doubt and your budget will allow, purchase this Yamaha mouth piece - you'll notice an improvement as well.

      Comments about Yamaha 5C Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

      I bought the product to try a larger tip opening. I have found that Yamaha mouthpieces sound best on Yamaha sax (imagine that). I was disappointed to find no ligature in with it. I have had more trouble finding ligatures to fit my mouthpieces than I care to remember. I like to keep my gear in sets but I have to share a ligature now with my 4C mouthpiece.
