E. Rousseau 4R Classic Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece BRAND NEW
Shipping Cost : $6.00
The Classic R Series Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece is the original E. Rousseau design, first introduced in 1972. When Dr. Rousseau couldn't find any commercially available saxophone mouthpieces on the market to recommend to his classical students he decided to try and design his own mouthpiece. The R Series Saxophone mouthpieces were inspired by a mouthpiece that Marcel Mule gave Dr. Rousseau in 1961. The Classic R Series is designed to meet the needs of the serious classical performer. These mouthpieces provide a warm, centered tone, positive response, and powerful projection with medium resistance and solid control.
Intonation, darkness of sound and excellent blending capability of the Classic R series are the qualities that make it a favorite of band directors. The R Series was designed by Eugene Rousseau, one of the most significant players and teachers of saxophone for the past fifty years. Rousseau is not only one of the world's finest classical players and a most prominent teacher; he also learned about woodwind acoustics and design from Charles Houvenaghel, regarded at that time as the greatest acoustician since Adolph Sax.
This Classic R Tenor saxophone mouthpiece provides for superior tone, responsiveness, and projection. It promotes a full range of tonal colors and excellent tonal center. The Classic R is designed for natural reed fit and easier tuning.
