Me too.



And yet you keep trying others…

FWIW and back on topic: I’ve played the Sakshama Double Ring in a 7*, and they are great mouthpieces. Sakshama does nice facings that play well. Not tubby.
Lol..don't think 1 sax and 2 mpces is overly excessive tbf...its quite hard when you have no other input into what sounds good..think the shakshama would be great for recording. It has more body and depth than the lebayle..

I don’t understand why you would limit the Sakshama to recording. It would also be fine for playing live as it has plenty of character and dynamic range. If you need more volume, then you need to learn how to blow it, how to shape your air stream and support your air.

I dont unferstand my airstreams fine on the lebayle 7...tried 5 ligs and 10 different reeds ranging from java red 2s ( the best by far) greens 2 1/2 rigotti 2 5 soft and med and dsj 2m and hard..Maybe link type pieces are just not for me. I even changed the crook from c1 to original g1to know avail..Plasicovers 2 were ok but a little tinny..

Yeah, Link-style pieces just blow differently. That’s the bottom line.

How tho @Dr G ...I can play my mates fine..rheres nothing wrong with the piece..is a 7* and 2 reed an ok match..I ws reeding a review by Steve Neff regarding baffles. He said if the baffle is near the tip ac reed with a stronger tip is better.. I ssumedvthe difference to be like java reds and greens..

When playing a ‘piece with less baffle, the mouthpiece is more sensitive to how one shapes the air. Opening the throat, shaping the tongue, blowing all the way through the horn…. This is sounding redundant, as if we had talked about this before. Reeds for classical playing tend to have thinner tips. I like a thicker tip for a lil’ more buzz to the core. I don’t know what you are quoting from Steve, and am not sure that it applies to this mouthpiece since it doesn’t have a very prominent baffle. Regardless, I would happily use either Alexander DC or Rigotti reeds.

Apologies for derailing your sales thread. Sakshama delivers on what he claims the piece to be. Even from his early days when the pieces looked less pretty, they always played well.

Guess its just not for me..I cant get the volume i want...beautiful tone but i probably need a smaller tip opening with a large chamber low baffle piece.
