New Classical Mouthpiece

Im looking for a nice classical mouthpiece for my new Monique Pro Series saxophone. I really like the Selmer S90, and i like the looks of the Crystal mouthpieces? Has anyone played on the crystal ones, what do they sound Like? If you have any suggestions please help.

    I've never played a crystal mouthpiece, but I would imagine that if they were any good, people would play them. Keep in mind that I really don't know, so take what I say here with a grain of salt.

      no real experience with crystal pieces, I would also recommend the Vandoren pieces. Very warm and even response...

        Here's a picture of a mouthpiece that I think goes particulary well with the Moniques... www.fotosearch.com/IMG309/01020023

      I play alto sax and use a Eugene Rousseau 4R classical mouthpiece. It is the best classical mouthpiece I have found. Mouthpieces are a very personal choice, so what works for me may not be the best choice for you. When I want to be brighter and more jazzy, I use a Jody jazz 6. I also play clarinet and use a pomarico crystal saphire B mouthpiece with a Vandoren Optimum ligature. The down side first. If you bump or drop it, it's done. End of mouthpiece. The up side, If you get a good one, you will never find a mouthpiece with a cleaner more resposive tone. I am so sold on crystal that I am thinking of getting one for my Alto sax. If you go with crystal, always have a backup piece close at hand. One mistake and good-by crystal.
