The future is here!
A brand new concept in designing and manufacturing saxophone mouthpieces by new French company SYOS. With a host of well known international sax artists rushing to sign up and now playing them, it is hard to ignore the impact this brand are having on the saxophone community. Brilliant technology and personal design combined with accurate 3D print.
There are two categories of mouthpiece available:
1. ARTIST SIGNATURE MOUTHPIECE. An Artist model - choose a model the same as one of the SYOS artists if you admire their playing/ sound - you can choose to have it made in a different colour and with a variety of tip openings! PLEASE NOTE we have a variety of models (artist models, tip openings, colours) in store for you to try. You'll be able to get a good idea about the various levels of brightness, power, darkness, warmth, softness etc available by trying a few in one of our private practice rooms. We can then help advise you in both an Artist model or a full custom model. Artist models cost £175 in store.
2. CUSTOM DESIGNED MOUTHPIECE. A fully custom bespoke designed mouthpiece to match your own sound and playing concept. Nick and Bob at Curly Woodwind can assist you in designing your mouthpiece (sound, playability etc) using the SYOS online questionaire and our own experience of playing many different models. Don't be worried! SYOS will make a custom mouthpiece for you and you have 30 days to test. If you find it's not quite right (eg top notes too bright, bottom notes too stuffy etc) SYOS will revise the design and make another piece for you - if you're still not happy within the 30 days you can get a full refund! Custom models should cost 299 Euro but you will get a discount using our code CURLYSYOS when you order direct from the syos website
Please feel very free to contact us and discuss anything at all regarding these exciting new mouthpieces - we totally appreciate it can be a daunting decision to make, particularly ordering a custom piece, we've been through it ourselves!
