What ligature for my new Syos?
Words from the artist
My Syos mouthpiece is incredibly free blowing, with flawless intonation. Each note I want to play just arrives with such ease, colour and shape. I'm thrilled that the search for the perfect mouthpiece seems to be at an end.
Dan Forshaw is one of the most influential Vloggers in the world of the saxophone. A superb communicator with an infectious passion for music, Dan’s ability to captivate audiences with his performances has led him to perform all over the world with ensembles ranging from jazz quartet’s to classical cathedral choirs. Forshaw is one of the UK’s leading experts on the legendary saxophonist, John Coltrane and has had a number of articles published on John Coltrane’s music & theology. Tim Price, Professor of saxophone in New York and a former teacher of Dan said, ‘Dan has reached a strong level of musicality, depth and technique that very few players have….he is a breath of fresh air, ‘hear him!’

Looks stunning, blows easy, dark and plays great.
As a beginner/Intermediate, I am getting immediate and unsolicited feedback by my instructor and captive audience (basically family!) that my sound has greatly improved over previous C* mouthpiece. I was looking for a darker, more mellow tone and this mouthpiece really did the trick. Altissimo range is still a work in progress but a lot more predictable. I use regular Vandoren blue box 3 or a Légère 2.5 reeds which work really well for this mouthpiece. Emission is easy and sound is still quite powerful. During long tones, it is also easier for me as well to tune each note more precisely.
Exactly as advertised, dark and warm sound, smooth as silk.
It produces the exact sound I am looking for on my new Eastman 52nd Street tenor (2021 model). Warm with some breadth and pushes out consistently rounded notes irrespective of which register!
SYOS mouthpieces work very well and the SYOS people are most helpful. My Dan Forshaw tenor 'piece arrived quickly and more recently two half - price 'freaks' which were offered. When I messed up the ordering process it was all cleared up by the helpful Sylvie. Happy to recommend!
