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 Modern Classical Alto Sax Mouthpiece is our premier symphonic mouthpiece design.
First, this mouthpiece kit is a combination of 2 proven vintage & 1 modern classical designs rolled into one mouthpiece.
Vintage Design Facing
We use our professional vintage Selmer Soloist C* style facing with a slight rollover baffle. This facing is extremely responsive with a concert reed. We highly recommend the D’Addario Reserve Classic reeds in a strength 3.0, 3.0+, 3.5 or 4.0 – Traditional “Blue Box” Vandoren reeds also work.
Modern Designed Chamber
The Modern Classical Alto Sax Mouthpiece chamber is based off the modern Selmer S80 mouthpieces being a square chamber. This chamber is utlra responsive at any dynamic level giving the player great control and stability.
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 Modern Classical mouthpieces come with a Free Professional Ligature – and you actually get to decide between 2 different models or upgrade to a higher end model at a discounted fee! Your options are:
- Rovner Dark Ligature
The Rovner Dark Ligature is a tried & true ligature known for it’s classic simplicity as well as its warmer tone. A wonderfully versatile and simple to use ligature, they are one of the most trusted symphonic 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 being over-tightened. Cap included.
- Upgrade – Rovner VERSA Ligature
The VERSA ligature combines the simplicity and ease of use of the Rovner Dark ligature with the improved tonal presence and response of the H-Ligature. This ligature is a “best of both worlds” ligature and an excellent option for the most discerning performer. Cap included.
Kessler & Sons Music offers a 3 day trial / return policy on our Modern Classical Alto 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 irreparable 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.
