Taking into account Keilwerth instrument architectural differences, and before I begin the trial process of yet another mouthpiece, I\'d be interested to hear educated guesses on the kind of sound, or sound tradition (person) I might expect from a Caravan or Morgan/Keilwerth alto combination.

\r\nComments are much appreciated. This is a great resource, btw.

\nI don\'t have experience with either on alto, but my experience with Morgans on tenor is that they are very flexible, and occupy a middle ground between the focus of the Selmer/Vandoren mpcs on the one hand, and Rascher/Buescher/etc. mpcs on the other. My 3C and 6C tenors have quite large chambers, but are neither tubby nor unfocused-' + '-both have a great deal of tonal clarity. I\'ve been curious about Caravans, but have never gotten around to trying them.\r\n

    \nThat\'s dead on...I think that they (Morgans) can be played in either style. Caravans are darker and much more resistant. And yes, Caravans and Rascher pieces are (obviously) in the Rascher tradition, although there are some French/American players (most notably Steven Mauk) play Caravans on soprano.

    \r\n Hello ,
    \r\nI\'m a new member of this forum and play mainly classical tenor sax in a woodwind ensemble ; after trying different mpc\'s , the Morgan 3C became my first choice (almost French like , warmer than the S80 and with more projection ) ; my second choice is a otto link tone edge 6 , for more popular music .
    \r\nFor alto , nobody talks about the Lebayle Classic mpc ! Last year we did a blind test with a lot of classical mpc\'s at the "saxophone winkel" and this mouthpiece was the absolute winner . A briljant tone and good projection . My daughter plays it and is very satisfied .
    \r\nNobody here plays this mpc ?\r\n

    \r\n Default Caravan mouthpiece trial\r\n

    \r\n Hello everyone:
    \r\n
    \r\nI ordered 2 Caravan mouthpieces on trial from classicsax.com (one Large Chamber and one Med Chamber) as recommended. The Large chamber Caravan is noticeably shorter than the medium chamber Caravan. Can anyone account for this difference? Just curious...
    \r\n
    \r\nAnyway, the Large chamber piece does play quite a bit darker than my Optimum; less upper overtones. The medium chamber one didn\'t offer enough of a difference for me to spend much time with it.
    \r\n
    \r\nI wound up having to play on a much harder reed than I\'m used to in order to get the mouthpieces to work for me. On my Keilwerth, as recorded, the large chamber Caravan sounds quite a bit more "nasal/reedy" and "tubby" ...not as focused. Though very even, I think I\'d describe the tone as wide (oval) rather than round. This is especially noticeable in open notes and in the lower register. The upper register is beautiful! Effortlessly dark and warm. Voicing and response for the altissimo register is significantly different; not as easy as what I\'m used to with the Optimum. Intonation is within the natural tendencies of my instrument though I have to make adjustments more often. The tonguing/response feels (and sounds) sluggish, even after spending quality time with it. The playing experience is in line with the Rascher I\'d played before but a little more focused.
    \r\n
    \r\nI had one of my advanced students try the Large chamber Caravan on his Cannonball alto and the piece plays and sounds beautifully for him on that instrument; round, dark and rich. The same is true when I play the Caravan on HIS instrument. His alto is quite a bit heavier/denser (mine is nickel) and lacquered so that may account for the difference in response and sound. My experience with tonguing and altissimo on his Cannonball were the same as before.
    \r\n
    \r\nI called Mike (Lomax) who\'s worked on a couple of my stock mouthpieces and asked him to send me a couple of his pieces to try out. I also ordered 2 Bilger Classical pieces (a Gold and a Gold*), which should be in this week, to compare. I\'ll post my observations when I\'m through. I\'m saving the Morgan for last...\r\n

    \nThe larger chamber piece needs to be shorter to provide correct intonation on modern horns. Remember - the Caravans are designed to be Rascher style pieces for MODERN horns, unlike the Rascher piece (which is a copy of a Buescher).
    \r\n
    \r\nI\'m curious as to where you got the Bilger pieces. They\'re hard to find these days.\r\n

    \r\n I have a question which has probably already been covered. I am playing alto in the local community concert band. I am using a Hite with a Rovner light lig and all is well. I have tried several other m/p\'s from WW & BW to see how they compare but the Hite still seems to do the best job for me. Has anyone compared a Hite to a Selmer Paris Larry Teal or Meyer Hard Rubber alto m/p? If so did you find that either one of these responded better than the Hite? Thanks.\r\n

    \nI like Hites. The Larry Teal will be a darker piece, but it will have a much closer facing than the Hite. The Hite will probably have a much more even facing than the Meyer as well. The Meyer and the Hite (the Hite is based on the old Meyers) will have a similar sound, assuming that we are talking about the Hite Artist and not the Hite Classic (which, ironically, is similar to the Larry Teal. It\'s based on the metal Selmer pieces.)\r\n

    \r\n I\'ve been reading at some posts in the forum how the Rousseau New Classic works well with the Yamaha 875. I was wondering if it\'s the same for the 82/62II as they are a different design compared to the 875. Should the old Classic model be better in this case?\r\n

    \r\n The NC series was designed and tested around the 875 series of horns. That being said, I\'ve known plenty of people who have used them on a variety of instruments successfully, and yes, they do work very well with the 62s. Never tried one or known anyone who uses them on a Z, but the basic design of the 82Z is based on the 62, so I see no reason why they shouldn\'t work well together.
    \r\n
    \r\nThe old classic models were built around the original 62s, so obviously they work very well. (And several of Dr. Rousseau\'s albums were recorded on just that combination!) I\'d suggest trying a couple of each and seeing which ones work better for you.\r\n

    \r\n So the 62II with the G1 neck should be in between the 2 mouthpieces
    \n
    \nNow I have to find some place to try them here in Japan. Nobody seems to have these pieces here! But this is another issue...

    \r\n I recently tried the AL4 piece again for giggles...I really liked the sound of the piece...it was still not quite flexible enough for my taste AND more importantly on my Reference Alto the low B warlbles.....There was a post earlier about reference horns and the AL optimum series pieces...try for yourself and see what happens...
    \r\n
    \r\nVandoren just needs to make an AL 4* or something-' + '-tweak it, make it a tad more projecting and more flexible...then it\'d be perfect!
    \r\n
    \r\nCheers,
    \r\n
    \r\nPS...I also tried a Rousseau NC5 soprano piece and it was AMAZING...very full and VERY smooth sound...intonation was rock solid...My recommedation for a legit sop piece...\r\n

    \r\n Just thought I\'d chime in and offer my own (perhaps unique, perhaps not) perspective.
    \n
    \nI primarily use a Caravan large chamber. I love the warm, round and rich sound it offers on my Cannonball. However... (uh-oh, he howevered!) I try to choose the appropriate sound for the style of the piece in question. It seems to me, that if a piece was written for, and dedicated to Mr. Rascher, then that is the sound concept that the composer had in mind. Another piece, say "Fuzzy Bird" was perhaps written with a different tonal concept. IMHO, we are trying to allow our audience to hear what the composer heard in his head. I don\'t believe that I\'d be comfortable playing a late 20th century piece, dedicated to Sinta, on my Caravan, any more than I\'m comfortable playing an earlier piece dedicated to Rascher on my C*.

    \nIf you can do that, great. I\'ve always found it better to settle on one mouthpiece and build your embrouchure around it than to try and switch around all the time. If you have a tonal concept that you can be flexible with, this shouldn\'t be a problem. I\'m curious if a teacher encouraged the approach that you use; I\'ve never heard of anyone doing that before.\r\n

    \nRick,
    \n
    \nI didn\'t realize you posted on the forum as well. I should pay attention, since you have been on the forum for almost four years.
    \n
    \nI feel that you should use the equipment you are comfortable with. Last fall I performed the Fuzzy Bird and the Harley Duo (written for Sinta) with my caravan setup, it worked pretty well. I like the open chamber mouthpiece sound as well, but this is onpinion I also don\'t want to start a "schools" war either

    \r\n I, and many of us, switch to the jazz mouthpiece (mine is a Meyer 5m) and change our approach to suit that style. I have just carried it a little further. We wouldn\'t play "What is this thing called love" on the classical setup, though I suppose one could, and unless it was an emergency, wouldn\'t play the Glaz on the Meyer. This is my own solution and opinion, btw.\r\n

    \nI play jazz on a different mouthpiece too, and I think most people do, but that\'s mostly to get better projection and a different idiomatic sound. I\'ve just never heard of anyone doing it with different classical pieces like you\'re describing. That\'s just a very different approach, and I\'m curious how you came up with it. I mean, I suppose you could even take it a step further by using diffeent horns to play pieces written for, say, Rascher on a Buescher Aristocrat, and ones written for Sinta on a Selmer Mark VI. And what happens if you play a piece written for Elise Hall?
    \n
    \nI\'m being a little facetious, I guess, but this isn\'t meant as an attack. I\'m just curious as to how you came up with this idea.

    \r\n Gracias on the CD\'s! I really appreciate that. I mostly play jazz piano, but I teach woodwinds. I would LOVE to have a Buescher Aristocrat to play my Rascher style pieces on... but I don\'t (yet), and while I\'m not a huge fan of the Mark VI (I know that is the horn God played) I might be satisfied with an 875ex. My Cannonball actually serves nicely, as the 2 necks provide vastly different sounds, and I do use them in that way.
    \n
    \nI always stress with my students that playing the music is what is important. Not what is on the page, as that is just an approximation. Anyone who\'s ever composed, or arranged, understands the limitations imposed by our notational system. You can\'t really get what is in your head onto the page. You can get close, but if you get too specific, you run the risk of overwhelming the performer. At any rate, I\'m all for interpreting the music, but I feel it is incumbent on us to interpret it, to the best of our ability, as the composer heard it in their head. It is, after all, their music. So... (I know I\'m rambling, sorry) in the interest of serving the composer and his/her wishes, it just seemed natural to me that sound concept was a part of that. The composer had an idea of what a saxophone sounds like, and elected to write for that instrument in lieu of any other. Having a vastly different tone than what he had in mind seems almost like playing it on another instrument entirely. Agreed that you can have a flexibility in your tone, and can brighten or darken, etc. This just seemed like a good solution to me. I\'m not advocating it, necessarily, for anyone else, just offering my thoughts. As to Elise Hall... not sure. I don\'t as much look at the dedicatee as I look at the music. The music can usually tell me what to do. If it seems contemporary, jazz influenced, whatever. Another question might be "What about transcriptions?
    \nWhat might one use on the Eccles for example. I don\'t have an answer to that one yet.
    \n
    \nAgain, thanks for the conversation! It is a treat!\r\n

    \r\n Hey, Chris. I hope you are well. I am, of course, in the same "school" you are. I love my caravans, and play them on all my horns. I am also fairly comfortable with the selmer mp, just as I am with the meyer. I use what makes me comfortable with the music I am playing. That was the point. I think you can be comfortable on more than one setup. Most of us are. It is the music that is important. BTW, I think it is great that we have these kinds of choices, and that we play an instrument that is capable of such an infinite variety of sounds. I think I\'ll have a beer (another beer) and toast Mr. Sax.\r\n

    \nI probably won\'t add too many vintage pieces. The idea is to discuss pieces that are readily available to students and other players, and most of the vintage pieces can be hard to get. I have to be able to get my hands on a particular piece to be able to test them too, so it\'s very difficult to list vintage pieces because you can\'t just try them from a place like WWBW. I will put the ones in that I can get my hands on (or that I\'ve owned myself and already "noted") but that isn\'t really the point of this thread.\r\n

    \r\n Alright, but don\'t you have a whole bunch of vintage buescher/selmers? Also, it seems like there\'s a million of those vintage barrel chambers on ebay, so they\'re not the hardest to come by.\r\n

    \r\n I had a Buescher piece refaced by Laurence Wyman that will be included, but the Airflow that I owned probably won\'t be. If you want more Rascher style pieces, unfotunately, the only other one made is the Ridenour piece, which I\'m in the process of obtaining.
    \r\n
    \r\nThe point of this thread is to talk about the various pieces available on the market - Bueschers/Selmers/Martins (which are fairly difficult to get decent ones) haven\'t been made in 70 years, and I don\'t have an appropriate horn on which to test them anyway. It would be nearly impossible to catalog every single barrel chamber mouthpiece ever made AND the majority of them play very similar to the Rascher pieces. The biggest difference is the quality of the rubber and facings, which is not really the idea. The idea is to give players an idea about how the different pieces play of the ones that are currently on the market.\r\n

    \r\n BTW, this is not meant as a slight to the Rascher players, but the choices are more limited. If you aren\'t going to play a vintage piece, your choices are basically Rascher, Caravan Large Chamber, or Ridenour. You can also play one of the "tweener" pieces, like the Bilger, Houlik, Caravan Medium Chamber or Morgan.
    \n
    \nVintage pieces are a bit beyond the scope of this thread because there\'s just too many to properly catalog, and a lot of them just don\'t play correctly on modern horns.\r\n

    \r\n At one point, Pyne(the popular clarinet mouthpiece company) was making a rascher-style mouthpiece. I\'m not sure whatever happened to it or if they just decided alltogether to drop it. Just thought I\'d throw it out there.\r\n

    At one point, Pyne(the popular clarinet mouthpiece company) was making a rascher-style mouthpiece. I\'m not sure whatever happened to it or if they just decided alltogether to drop it. Just thought I\'d throw it out there.
    \r\n \r\n
    \r\n
    \r\n
    \nI contacted James Pyne about that piece - it was called the Pyne Sonata. Unfortunately, due to low demand he isn\'t making them any more. (Weiner still has some, I believe.) I\'m not sure that it was a true Rascher style piece though; he told me that it was more of a short shank (Soloist) style piece. There are also a few pieces no longer made that I need to drop, and that\'s one of them. Also, the Hite Classic M64 is no longer made (sadly), the Bambers are being dropped in favor of a cheaper "WW Series II" piece, the Hawkins Sinta is no longer made (again, sadly), the Bari C* is now called the Baroque (I\'m not sure if it\'s changed at all) and there have been a few others taken out of production.
    \r\n
    \r\nThe upside is that there are some new ones...the Ponzol C*, the Houliks, the Jewel Symphonic, Clark Fobes is making one now (I think), and Bilger is back. I want and try and do a more thorough evaluation of these along with the old ones, so this project will probably take me a few months and I may do it in article form rather than as a post, as I will be able to get more information in. (The downside is that I\'ll have to do some real writing rather than just a list...sigh...)\r\n

    \r\n Wondering if the A15 has been talked about. I just bought a AL3, I loved it on first play, but went against it out of instinct came back to the store for second and third play..really enjoyed it. I\'m going to try some meyers for jazz tomorrow the store has an A15, that they brang in for me to test, but me being a bad musician bought my AL3, before trying the A15.
    \n
    \nI\'m selling my C* so I think I can scrape enough for a meyers or the A15. As well there could be a possible vintage metal I will play tomorrow
    \n
    \nreally since your all classical guys, A15.. the supposed \'classical\' MPC of vandoren.

    \r\n Been sometime with the posting, I was reading up earlier in the thread about tuning on AL3\'s and reference alto\'s well. I have a yas 475 and I\'m getting really weird flattening of the c sharps, both lower and upper octives, the funny thing is when I switch out to my AL15 the difference is no longer, there, it just seems like the drop in tones between the D and C sharp is VERY noticible, and sounds quite off..
    \r\n
    \r\nI\'m happier with the tone my Al3 gives me, very happy. Just curious if a tech could help with this problem?
    \r\n
    \r\nI\'ve tried lipping it up it seems to be possible but just extremely hard to do.
    \r\n
    \r\nto any that reply, thanks for the help.

    \r\n So. the best soprano mp on the market is yamaha custom. it comes in the cases of yamaha saxophones, i bought one for $20 from the local music store. what a deal. i have tried every mouthpiece on the market, including the C*. not even close.
    \r\n
    \r\nfor alto - for classical and jazz I use a dukov 5. i find it provides the smoothest tone. for an exmaple of my playing pm me.

      I ordered 2 Caravan mouthpieces on trial from classicsax.com (one Large Chamber and one Med Chamber) as recommended. The Large chamber Caravan is noticeably shorter than the medium chamber Caravan. Can anyone account for this difference? Just curious...
      The larger chamber piece needs to be shorter to provide correct intonation on modern horns. Remember - the Caravans are designed to be Rascher style pieces for MODERN horns, unlike the Rascher piece (which is a copy of a Buescher).

      I'm curious as to where you got the Bilger pieces. They're hard to find these days.
      Current setups:
      Yamaha YSS-875EX, Selmer Soloist D, Ishimori lig,Hemke 3.5
      Yamaha YAS-875EXS, Selmer Air Flow C*, Ishimori lig,Hemke 3.5
      Yamaha YTS-875EX, Selmer Air Flow C*, Ishimori lig, Hemke 3.5
      Kessler Solist Bari, Selmer Air Flow C*, BG Tradition lig, Vandoren 3
