saxophone mouthpiece

About Us and Generic mouthpiece

We sell Generic of the most accurately scanned mouthpieces in the world.

The scan is very high resolution. The error due to scanning is about 0.001 mm. (It corresponds to 1/80 of the diameter of the cross section of the hair.) Our mouthpiece reproduces the structure of the mouthpiece better than other replica makers and replica models.

What affects the tone? material? Internal structure?

Phil Baron, the creator of the famous mouthpiece, wrote in his blog that the differences in mouthpiece materials are indistinguishable to the human ear. It was also found that the difference in timbre was due to the difference in the structure of the baffle and the chamber. His paper (see link below) proves that our replicas have excellent timbre reproduction.

Is the material of the saxophone mouthpiece important? Phil Barone


Do you think Phil Baron's theory is correct?

I would like to hear your opinion.

I think Certainly it is difficult to guess the material from the sound. However, the performer feels the difference in the material of the mouthpiece when playing. Unknown materials that are different from conventional materials have new tones, new blowing sensations, and encounters with new characters. You don't know the new material for 3D printers. enjoy it!

Expectations for advances in 3D printing technology

Reproducibility of 3D printing remains a challenge. With the improvement of 3D printing technology, one day you will be able to play comfortably immediately after printing. Currently, surface polishing is required after printing. Details will be explained at (https://www.3dscanjp.com/material). Currently, 3dscanjp can print more finely than Shapeway and DMM Creators Market. I look forward to the progress of 3D printing technology. If you know a good printing company, please introduce me!
