Andrew Cox plays Syos
I was pretty sorted with my set up and not looking to change. Then Pauline got in touch. I’ve been intrigued by these pieces for a while so was really interested to give them a go. I couldn’t believe it. It had the same warmth and sound as my previous vintage mouthpiece but with more projection and focus. I ended up playing it on the gig that night and have been on it ever since. I love it! SYOS are doing an incredible job and I feel like this could be a true game changer!
The sound of Andrew Cox is balanced and very powerful. The mouthpiece we created for Andrew gives him the possibility to deploy easily this timbre in all the registers of the tenor.
