Better than my Meyer!

    Comments about D'Addario Woodwinds Select Jazz Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

    I was surprised by this mouthpiece, how well it plays and how free-blowing it is. As a private teacher, this is a great suggestion for students just beginning with Jazz or accomplished players too. Even though it's slightly more expensive than a Meyer, totally worth it. Sounds great with a Rovner ligature.

    My New Main Tenor Piece

    By 

    from Atlanta

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about D'Addario Woodwinds Select Jazz Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

    Word of mouth on the new Select Jazz mouthpiece was full of praise, so I decided I had to try one. All the "hype" was true, this is a fantastic tenor piece. Very free blowing, lots of dynamic range and better on the high notes than my old Berg. This is now my main mouthpiece for tenor.

    I would recommend this for any level player

    Comments about D'Addario Woodwinds Select Jazz Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

    As someone who has been playing for almost 20 years, and teaching for 8, I am wowed by this mouthpiece. I've been played by on it for over a month now, at least 5 hours a week. The entire range of the horn not only speaks easily with a good tone, but also in tune! Which is just so hard to come by in a jazz mouthpiece.

    Before I tried this, I was using just a standard Meyer (the one I got forever ago in middle school). I never had a complaint with it. Got the sound I wanted, good intonation, easy speaking. Then I tried the Jazz Select D7M. I've come to realize I only like my Meyer because I didn't know any better. I'll never play on my Meyer again.

    For my students, I had them try the Jazz Select beside a Meyer, a Berg 100/1, a Selmer Spirit, and about 3 different Vandoren. 7 out of the 9 liked the Jazz Select, without my prompting them for an answer. Plus they actually sound good, and in tune, on this mouthpiece.

    Don't let the old dudes who play saxophone pontificate the lie of "Don't play Rico/D'addario". Those people clearly haven't tried the reeds or mouthpieces lately. I'm in the market for a new alto jazz piece and you can bet your butt that I'm going to try the Jazz Select for alto before purchasing and wasting my money on a crazy expensive piece that just doesn't play the way I want.

    TL;DR - Jazz Select is awesome, consistent, and absolutely worth trying it if your local store has one in stock. If they don't, demand to try one, it'll be worth it.

        Outstanding Mouthpiece

        Pros

        • Excellent right out of the box
        • Free blowing over the entire range of the horn

          Comments about D'Addario Woodwinds Select Jazz Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece:

          I've seen a lot of hype about the D'Addario Select Jazz mouthpiece, and it totally lives up to it. This is a truly amazing piece right out of the box. Very free-blowing and in tune. The high palm keys have always sounded thin for me, but I get a nice full sound out of them with this Select Jazz piece. Pretty sure this will be my main tenor mouthpiece going forward. Highly recommended.
