Full Description

These quality precision made mouthpieces come in three different styles
R - Series: Large Chamber, versatile, roll over baffle
S - Series: Medium Chamber (horseshoe) inspired by vintage jazz pieces
E - Series: Medium Chamber, long roll over baffle, based on early Babbit and Links, versatile warm subtone

Both mouthpieces come in 7* (.105") and 8* (.115"). Precision made from quality hard rubber. Be sure to check out our range of BSS Saxophone reeds to match with these beautiful mouthpieces.

Here's what Jack has to say about these incredible mouthpieces:

S - Series: I’ve been very lucky in my life to enjoy some incredible classic mouthpieces and was constantly on the search for something that had tonal homogeny throughout all ranges, but that I could get plenty of volume out of. The S-Series hard rubber tenor mouthpiece is a result of the fruits of that search and I’m proud to share a design that in my opinion encapsulates a remarkable amount of core, depth and evenness for a ‘jazz’ mouthpiece while still having the ability to cut. It’s a reference to the great ‘horseshoe’ chamber pieces of the past, but made for the modern player.

Creating the BSS line of mouthpieces has also given me an opportunity to approach the boutique market with a fresh methodology. After a lot of research, we partnered with one of the most technically advanced CNC machine shops in the country, giving us the ability to dial in an unbelievable level of precision and absolute consistency piece to piece. No need to worry if you are going to get a ‘good one’ because they are all great. In addition, every single one is hand finished at the shop and personally play tested by yours truly.

I couldn’t be much more excited to share with you my first mouthpiece offering which represents for me the pinnacle of my product design over the past years and a milestone for Boston Sax Shop.

R - Series : There is something very intriguing about large chamber tenor saxophone mouthpieces. When they are right, they offer an incredible amount of spread and flexibility in tone that just can’t be beat.

However! Finding that perfect piece in vintage form and in a more modern tip size can be a challenge. Personally, I struggled for years to find a Reso Chamber model Link that once opened up retained all the characteristics and potential that I knew these pieces could have. Throughout the years of hunting, purchasing and paying for refacing I only lucked out on one! Inspired by that piece I spent the better part of a year to re-imagine it with power of CNC technology and after many prototypes, found that perfect balance of baffle profile for the larger chamber in bigger than vintage tip sizes. The R-Series is the large chamber mouthpiece for the modern player.

For me, the R-Series is simply put: lush. Yes, I know that's an esoteric word but I really think it fits! The large chamber provides a free and spread sound and the medium roll over baffle gives it plenty of power to project without losing the warmth and width of the tonal centre.

The E Series is the all-rounder: the piece that can both cut through a loud band but still whisper subtone on a ballad. Inspired by the tonal characteristics of the coveted ‘Early Babbit’ transitional Links I really wanted to find that perfect balance of brilliance and warmth that the best vintage ones have. The end result (after many many prototypes) ended up with a interior profile that utilizes a unique longer roll over baffle. As opposed to the shorter and higher baffles found in the vintage models, I find the gentle roll over shape to provides an equal amount of power without sacrificing evenness which is so important to me. The end result is once again, incredibly versatile: punchy, warm and easy to play!
