Mouthpiece Position on the Soprano Saxophone:


Mouthpiece Position on the Soprano Saxophone:

It is very important that the mouthpiece be pushed in or down on the neck cork a good amount for the soprano to play properly… this will of course vary a little but most players do not push the mouthpiece on the cork far enough.. The length of the mouthpiece will vary. If the mouthpiece is not on the neck enough then the results are *The lower register does not respond, *The upper or middle register can be flat, you need to find the Sweet Spot…

There are 2 different lengths of soprano saxophone mouthpieces:
1. The original *Short Shank, the new Super Session Selmer Mouthpiece is a short shank.
2. Many of the modern soprano mouthpieces are longer and need to be pushed on the cork a very good amount for the soprano to play properly.

*The saxophone Sweet Spot is where the mouthpiece is on the neck so the saxophone plays its best… When you find the Sweet Spot the response will be its best, the pitch will be its best, the tone will be its best.
*The saxophone is designed from the tip of the mouthpiece to the bottom of the bell, not from the end of the neck to the bottom of the bell… so, where the mouthpiece fits on the neck is very important. This is why we need to find the Sweet Spot..
