Soprano Saxophone Mouthpieces
A few factors need to be considered before you choose a soprano saxophone mouthpiece. The first factor will be your budget; soprano saxophone mouthpieces can range anywhere from $20 to $500. Other things to consider are the material it's made from and its shape design. Some saxophonists prefer the feel and dark sound of a hard rubber mouthpiece while others lobby for the durability and bright sound of a metal mouthpiece. As for shape, mouthpieces with wider tip openings make for a clearer, louder tone while narrow tip openings are usually easier to play.
