Alto Saxophone Mouthpieces

Saxophone Mouthpieces

Yamaha mouthpieces represent excellent value for money at an affordable price. The standard series are made from phenol resin ( Plastic ) and are finished to a high standard.

 When you purchase a new instrument they generally come with a mouthpiece supplied. As you progress with your instrument it is normal that you would try a different mouthpiece to suit your own playing technique and style.  Sometimes, a player may choose a mouthpiece with design features for a particular playing style (e.g. Jazz, Orchestral, etc.) The Yamaha range offers several mouthpieces in the range for different playing styles.
