“Hi we are Pauline and Maxime, we are both acoustic researcher and have a deep passion for music. Our mission? To help all saxophonists to find the saxophone mouthpiece that fits with their sound”
The sound of your saxophone is determined by the mouthpiece acoustics. Crafting its internal geometry, we are able to predict your sound, and then to shape it as you wish.
The search of your sound aesthetics is our most important goal at Syos. As long as you desire it, we adjust the shape of your mouthpiece, working at 1/100th millimeter.
A custom saxophone mouthpiece means more freedom for you. Crafted with a unique design approach, our mouthpieces are easier to play, more precise and homogenous, whatever your desired timbre is. Come and test them!
For all saxophone players, professional or simply amateur like me, looking for your own sound is like searching for the Holy Grail! But now, I think I found what I was looking for thanks to Syos!
The mouthpieces invented by Syos and 3D printed are a wonderful evolution: extremely flexible, adjustable, adaptable and reproductible at will. This offers saxophone players a way to look for new sounds, news perspectives and to look at the future!
I had an instant crush with my Syos mouthpiece. Yet, I have been playing my sweet metal mouthpiece for 15 years. Today, it can’t stand the comparison and it gathers dust… And I don’t have guilty conscience even after so many years of loyal service.
As an amateur, I wondered if Syos mouthpieces weren’t too technical for me, but Pauline carefully listened to me and found the mouthpiece I needed to get the funky sound I was looking for. Thanks Pauline, Thanks Syos.
I never imagined having a mouthpieces that produced all of the power and warmth one could desire, but my Syos does just that with ease. Whether playing tenor or soprano at a whisper or competing with a big band with no mic, these pieces deliver. You must try it to believe it!
Syos is the pure sound customization. We get an easy-to-play mouthpiece, with the sound we want, the dream of all saxophonists!
We create custom mouthpieces for all saxophonists, from the amateur to the pro, with a lot of love and passion.
Syos was founded by two researchers in acoustics. We studied both the physics of wind instruments and auditory perception (and especially the sound vocabulary), so we established relationships between sound characteristics and mouthpiece geometry elements (chamber, baffle, tip opening, etc…)
When you order a Syos mouthpiece, we use your answers from the questionnaire to calculate the most appropriate geometry. You receive the mouthpiece and you can test it at home, in rehearsal, in concert… You can give us feedback that allow us to improve the mouthpiece if needed; to make it even more perfect. You’ll receive then a second version of the mouthpiece that you can test, etc… Last but not least, you’ll be followed by one of our acoustician experts during all the process!
When you order a mouthpiece, you have 15 days to try it at home and you can send it back if it doesn’t suit you. You can also discover Syos mouthpieces in our studio in Paris : book an appointment with Thomas to discover more than 1000 different mouthpieces and better understand the influence of geometry on the sound. In 2018, Syos mouthpieces will be available in several places in Europe : subscribe to our newsletter to be informed of all our news.
