I just bought one WARBURTON hard rubber Alto mouthpiece and found that it is difficult to play Treble notes, anyone has experience in playing this one to help me?

How long have you been playing?

Which mouthpiece? (Tip opening).

Which reeds (type/strength) are you using?

Which notes can you play?

every mouthpiece needs some time for you to adapt to, so dont be troubled if it isn't "plug and play" definitely when you arent playing that long.

in the mean time;You could try putting the mouthpiece a bit further into your mouth..

I thought that this section of the Forum was for posting cooking recipes, and NOT discussing saxophones and accessories, which has a section clearly marked for such a purpose, called "Saxophones and Accessories".

Could I request that any future posts about Saxophones and mouthpieces be placed in the appropriate section, and not posted in a section about Cooking!

Kind regards
Tom

Hey Tom, my fault, I didn't notice it was in the wrong forum. Moved now. :thumb:

Well, Warburton's make bread, too >:).
And the bread is a lot cheaper than the mouthpieces! No problems, KevvyG - just thought it was strange to place the new threads in Jazz recipes. There is probably a good explanation, which has not occured to me as yet (such things as language, dialect and such like - so no harm intended).

Kind regards
Tom

What mouthpiece did you use to play before the Warburton?
Which Warburton model are you playing?

Can't directly comment on Warburtons but there are plenty of reputable mouthpieces I don't get along with- the fact you don't get on with a particular piece is pretty inevitable.... and really shouldn't be taken as any significant comment on the make themselves (last time I tried a Vandoren optimum I could hardly get it to make a noise.... not quite sure what that proves)
