Gareth Lumbers plays Syos
This mouthpiece does not play/feel how you initially think it would from looking at it! It allows my sound to be expressed freely and easily with no compromise and in any situation from touring with Myles Sanko to playing a small Jazz Trio gig. Syos knowledge and expertise in acoustic sciences allows them to tailor make a mouthpiece to your exact specification. Taking mouthpiece manufacturing to the next level! Loving the refreshing colour choices too!
The sound of Gareth Lumbers is quite bright and focused, and very very powerful! The mouthpiece we created for Gareth gives him the possibility to deploy easily this timbre in all the registers of the tenor.
