Re: Mouthpieces with Chu soprano
Don’t mind me, folks. I’m just talking to myself. It’s hard for me to believe that none of the regulars on this forum play, or are willing to discuss their Chu sopranos. (There must be thousands of these horns out there!)
At any rate, I use an Otto Link Tone Edge (HR) 6* mouthpiece with stock ligature and Hemke #4 reed. The tone of this setup is sweet and mellow and plays effortlessly in the lower register. I find that I need a bigger “byte” of the mouthpiece when transitioning to the upper register, and even more as I move upward. To date, I have been unable to get any satisfactory sound from the upper palm keys.
Can anyone suggest a setup that will ease the top end?
Come on, all you saxophiles, talk to me!
