Tenor Sax Mouthpieces

Sax mouthpieces - a wide array of choices are available.

Quality ebonite rubber mouthpieces produce a rounder and more rewarding sound than typical student mouthpieces and will help give a better overall performance for the improving player. By the time a beginner reaches grade 4-5 standard they are usually ready to make this upgrade.

Metal mouthpieces, often associated with jazz styles, are also available and will help to produce greater brilliance and volume, often referred to as 'edge'.

Most saxophone players will own 2 or more mouthpieces to play their best in all styles of music.

Some of our customers will know exactly what they want, so please search or browse and then buy online. Others will need more help. As a quick guide some of the best all round alto sax mouthpieces ever made are the Selmer C* and C**, the Vandoren Optimum AL3 andAL4, the Rousseau New Classic 4 and 5, the Meyer 5MM and 6MM and the Yanagisawa metal 6 and 7. Equivalent mouthpieces are available for most saxophones. Many further options are also available.

This is a link to the Eugene Rousseau webpage that has a useful section on mouthpiece terminology.



Wood, Wind and Reed aim to make buying and owning an instrument easy and enjoyable. We choose the best products available to save you time and money. All instruments are tested and adjusted before sale and our reputation for pre and post sales service is the envy of our trade.

With such an extensive catalogue we are not able to keep all goods in stock all the time. We do keep hundreds of ligatures, double reeds, cleaners, cases and other accessories in stock and we can therefore dispatch the majority of orders within 48 hours.

Our extensive selection of student and professional instruments are given a final inspection, adjustment and test before they are dispatched so please allow around 5 working days for dispatch.
