Created in the 1840s, the soprano saxophone is without a doubt one of the most popular sax types. Although it's the third smallest in size compared to other members of the saxophone family, the soprano has the highest pitch (along with the lesser-known sopranino) and is definitely one of the most challenging types to play. For this reason, it's important that the mouthpiece you go with is chosen carefully. Of course, you can clearly see by browsing this section that the most respected names in mouthpieces specialize in their own soprano mouthpiece models.
To determine what soprano saxophone mouthpiece is best for you, it helps to consider what type of music you play. For example, if you play in a jazz band, you'll want a mouthpiece that provides plenty of flexibility and volume, and for that we'll suggest the Jody Jazz HR* Hard Rubber Soprano Saxophone Mouthpiece. This model has a hand finished baffle, trip rail and table, and it features a round chamber for a big, open sound. With its free-blown feel, warm tone and remarkable power and projection, the HR* by Jody Jazz is ideal for traditional and modern jazz styles alike.
Soprano saxophonists are also found often in concert bands. If this sounds like you, you'll want a mouthpiece with qualities that provide a focused, controlled sound - in this case, go with the Selmer Paris Concept Soprano Saxophone Mouthpiece. Featuring a round chamber and a tip opening of 0.42", this mouthpiece is easy to play and its tone is described as rich and consistent. Simply put, it's a perfect mouthpiece for classical soprano saxophonists.
And there are plenty of other beautifully-crafted soprano saxophone mouthpieces to suit every budget and style here. In fact, the Meyer Hard Rubber Soprano Saxophone Mouthpiece is one of the most popular jazz mouthpieces on the market today, and the Lebayle Hard Rubber LR Chamber Soprano Saxophone Mouthpiece is favored by many top players for its versatility. From Vandoren and Selmer Paris to Bari and E. Rousseau, these companies are committed to your playing aspirations and it shows in the great deal of effort put into every mouthpiece in this catalog.
