Does anyone on the forum use these mouthpieces? Any comments or experience would be appreciated

I have a Rousseau classic 5R which I use for classicstuff or if I want to sound a bit more mellow than usual. I used to have an S80 but preferred the sound of the Rousseau so kept that. Stick a Marca Jazz or somethng similar on it and poke some air down it and it goes reasonably well too.

Thank you. I have a chance to get a new one at a very low price. I shall stick on a mouthpatch and if I don't like it I shall sell on here.

Yes, I am looking forward to it. And the recommendation from Nick sealed the deal. Great price for a new HR piece as well, just as you said.

If it's anyway near as good as the Rousseau Studio Jazz I use you'll be a happy man.
Good hunting there Prof.

I have both the 4R and 5R and play each depending upon the occasion. The 5R is a bit more open and requires a bit softer reed. I was a Selmer fan for many years playing on the old scroll D and C* pieces on alto, but found the Rousseaus enabled me to get a rounder tone and play the low register with more control at softer dynamic levels.

Strange that I couldn't find a dealer or outlet for them in the UK. Are they not that popular outside of the classical sax players network?
