Kessler Custom Hard Rubber Soprano Sax Mouthpiece
Free Professional Ligature Included!
Mouthpiece is THE MOST important piece of equipment for the saxophone player. Our Kessler Custom line of mouthpieces are designed for specific styles of performance and musicality. Our hard rubber soprano sax mouthpiece combines value with excellent tone and response! We offer our hard rubber soprano sax mouthpiece in 2 facing options. Both of our models sit on the slightly larger side of the tip opening spectrum in order to encourage players to play more relaxed which is the real secret to a warmer soprano sax tone. These mouthpieces are completely hand-faced and offer a rich tone with exceptional response!
FREE Professional Ligature!
Your ligature makes a huge impact on your mouthpiece’s performance. So in order to provide you with an even better value, our Pro Soprano mouthpieces come with a Free Professional Ligature – and you actually get to decide between 2 different models to be included with your new mouthpiece! Your options are:
- Rovner Light Ligature
The Rovner Light Ligature is a tried & true ligature known for it’s classic simplicity as well as its lively tone. A wonderfully versatile and simple to use ligature, they are one of the most trusted ligatures available on the market. Cap included.
- D’Addario H-Ligature
The D’Addario H-Ligature is a re-creation of the vintage Harrison ligatures. Known for possessing great tonal presence and response, they do play a bit brighter and are more sensitive to damage from being over-tightened. To help, we pre-fit the H-Ligature to the mouthpiece before shipment to minimize this risk. Cap included.
- Rovner Light Ligature
We offer our Kessler Custom Hard Rubber Soprano Sax mouthpieces in the choice of 2 facings. We designed our facing options to help players develop their soprano sound in to a bigger, sweeter tone than many players naturally achieve. The problem for many players on soprano is that they play too tight on their embouchure. This is due to the relatively smaller nature of the mouthpiece and other mistakes that players commonly make.
Take a moment and read Dave Kessler’s Blog Post about soprano sax playing here.
- Size 5 – .062″ tip opening with medium long facing
- Size 7 – .069″ tip opening with a medium facing
Other than just being bigger in the tip opening, the size 7 has more brilliance due to the more traditional medium facing.
Kessler & Sons Music offers a 3 day trial / return policy by default on our hard rubber soprano sax mouthpiece. There are no cleaning fees or restocking fees (assuming that the item is returned in proper condition).
When we ship the mouthpiece, we install a blue protective film over the logo to help protect the logo from unrepairable scratches while it is being tested. We also install a tooth patch before shipping. This way you can test the mouthpiece without fear of damage. We recommend leaving these items on the mouthpiece during the testing phase and only to remove them after you have made the decision to keep the mouthpiece.
Please read our terms & conditions (link at the bottom of the page) for full details on this policy.
