Saxphone Syos mouthpieces

The concept

Create your sound

Syos stands for Shape Your Own Sound. The technology and the science behind our mouthpieces have been developed during years of acoustics research. A mouthpiece that helps musicians to get the sound they like more easily means just more freedom for them when they play!

A unique technology

Syos mouthpieces were born at Ircam, the worldwide reference in terms of research on music and sound technologies. The meeting between Pauline, specialist of wind instruments, and Maxime, auditory perception expert, started the creation and development of a new and original way of crafting instruments.

Thousands of saxophone mouthpieces geometry

Thousands of possibilities

For wind instruments, it’s the internal geometry of the bore that gives all the acoustic properties. We work at 1/100th millimeter to adjust the shape and the length of the baffle, the chamber section and size, the tip opening, the facing length… We study and compute the effect of all these parameters on the sound, to predict the timbre of each combination of them.

Syos saxophone mouthpieces are made in ABS-plastic

Plastic is chic

We use ABS plastic to craft our mouthpieces: this material allows us to get the highest degree of precision, with an improved resistance and durability. And you can get that in 18 colours to build a perfect style on stage!
