for the same reason I wanted the silver-plated alto, I really liked the mouthpiece that came w JP altos... medium chamber, free blowing like a Yammy 4 or 5c, tho I swapped the ligature out for my Rovner and still use a Legère American Cut reed. I'm going for a clear, airy tone with the alto, more classical, restrained, on pitch, and sweet. I can balance the entire range of the instrument with this mouthpiece (and this horn for that matter). When I want dramboozle with syrup and growl, it's time to reach for the tenor ;) Anyway, that's me... thx to JP staff, esp Tim in support, who actually created a comparison video because I was needing to hear the diff between the brass and silver models. Grazie!
works without issue. had to order #3 reeds. maybe jean paul could include a few different sized reeds otherwise very happy.
Mouth piece is pretty good, a bit squeaky, I would say that the mouth piece that came with the saxophone was better.
Love it. Sound of play is fuller due to Jean Paul Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece.
Very pleased with my sax and new mouth piece .
