Re: Selmer S-80 Mouthpiece
I personally would highly recommend the S-80 C*, I have all of my private students at least try one, although the other suggestion that have been mentioned are good also, it's just my personal preference. Whatever YOU get the best sound on counts. Also remember that even though a mouthpiece maybe the same model and same facing, two different mouthpieces can play very differently. i.e., if you order three C* mouthpieces, they will all play a little differently, you have to choose the one that plays best for YOU and that YOU sound the best on. I get frustrated when I hear private teachers or student saying, " My teacher picked out my mouthpiece for me, it was the best one he could find and it played great for him."
In this case that mouthpiece played well for the teacher, but it might not be ideal for the student, good, yes, but not ideal. Pick your own out with some help, and maybe ask opinions for which one sounds the best to an objective listener, then keep trying them until you find just the right one. It can be a lengthy process, but a very productive one.
