    Saxophone:
    Yanagisawa A902
    MP: Yanagisawa 5
    Reed: Vandoren (blue box) Traditional 3
    Lig: stock

    I tend to get a pretty even, dark, tone throughout the registers, therefore, it's my classical set up.
    It's only cool until Kenny G does it.

    I believe it was a fault with only a certain batch, right now I have no problem with it! :P

    I know what you mean though, I have a friend who had a gurgler... :3

    sure thing, but I am playing a prototype and not the exact final version, so i can only speak for myself and for this particular mouthpiece, although it is the final prototype and possibly the same the finished product.

    so:

    SD20 = Selmer Diastema 20th Anniversary (that what I've been told anyway)

    It is developed by the members of the Diastema Saxophone Quartet:

    Soprano - Phillipe Lecocq
    Alto - Christophe Bois
    Tenor - Philippe Braquart
    Baritone - Eric Devallon

    currently it exists in Alto and Tenor only, I'm not sure the plan for soprano and baritone, I will ask my teacher about it (Phillipe Braquart)

    I have both the alto and tenor but I'll concentrate on the alto one for now.

    equipment used to test: selmer Serie III, Vandoren 3/Rico 3, BG traditional Gold Plate/ super Revelation
    original mouthpiece :Vandoren A28

    in short: think a cross between a AL3 and A28

    appearance:

    it doesn't look like a selmer mouthpiece at all, it has a round chamber and a somewhat concave interior


    immediate reaction to -

    sound: very colorful, rounded and lots of depths
    articulation: clean
    homogeneity: very even
    tuning: spot on *

    *my teacher told me the mouthpiece is designed to cancel out the tuning problem on the Serie III on the middle A to C#, which are constantly 13-20cent flat when the rest of the saxophone is in tune, and what do you know? IT DOES EXACTLY THAT! awesome!

    thoughts after 1 week:

    sound: even more colorful and rounded but dynamic is lacking a bit on the louder side... (pppp - f)
    ariticulation: incredibly clean
    homogeneity: getting a bit thin up top but bottom is fantastic!
    tuning :not an issue
    general thought: getting a bit uncomfortable...it is different, the whole back pressure and tuning works differently and it is not as brilliant in sound as A28

    thoughts after 1 months:

    sound: color retains very well, the rounded sound is even warmer, the louder side can now be obtained (pppp-ff)
    articulation: all registers very clear and clean
    homogeneity: the top end now is very brilliant and solid and the bottom end is poweful, jumps from top F to low Bb/B have no troubles at all and tone is all very nice including the middle C#
    tuning: will never be an issue again

    thoughts: I'm gonna stick with this mouthpiece, this is a fantastic mouthpiece, it is easy to control and does what I need to achieve.

    conclusion:

    the mouthpiece is very very different to everything i've played, it took a month of practicing around 5-7 hours a day to get use to it, coming from the A28, it has a lot more angle in the beak and you need to focus a lot more to get a very attractive sound, a friend of mine who plays a S90 170 said the same thing about the change to SD20.

    it has the same tip opening as the A28 and it is really not as loud but the sound is a lot more focused.

    A very good thing about the SD20 (for me) is that when you are playing the alto mouthpiece, it is similar to playing a very large soprano mouthpiece( S90 170), making the doubling of alto and soprano extremely easy for me and the tenor mouthpiece is like a small baritone one ( B27) so that makes the lower end accessible as well, the alto and tenor SD20 are also very similar so there is no problems at all to go from soprano to baritone.

    1 thing i don't like is the tip, in true selmer fashion, the arch at the tip is very deep and neither Vandoren nor Rico reeds would fit right on it...

    this is a great embouchure trainer as well, since it requires a lot of attention to every aspect of how the mouth is "attached" to the mouthpiece.

    I would consider the SD20 as a dark sounding mouthpiece but it is able to punch!( i really like that)

    i better go to bed...it's 4 am here

    so I guess thats the end of the very brief review. You really need to test it out yourself, after all, we are all different!

    If you have any questions feel free to ask here or find me on facebook and send me a message


    over and out

    happy easter everyone!

    Yo2

    P.S. if you would like photos of the mouthpiece, I would be happy to take some and post them here.

    Bari:
    Unison 5005 low A
    silver neck
    Otto Link Tone Edge, 8*, hard rubber
    Rico Royal, 3.5
    Although a newer horn, it has a classic sound. Great tone, free blowing horn with great ergonomics. The silver neck I just acquired gives it just the right amount of additional edge, although it sounded great with the original neck, too.

    Ok, this makes me a little uneasy because I see some awesome horns on here. Let me see..

    Vito Tenor
    S80 *C Mouthpiece

    Armstrong Alto Sax (anyone else get one of these?)
    s90 mouthpiece i think.

    I forget offhand what kind of soprano...ha! Don't feel like lookin' right now...

    But as you can see, not a lot of money in the horns. I wish I had some to do so. But I'm proud of the sounds I can get out of these horns when I work.

    Thanks!
    Chuck
