This is a Warburton soprano saxophone mouthpiece made by Eric Falcon. This is one of the best soprano mouthpieces I have had the pleasure of playing. It plays effortlessly and has a big fat soprano sound to it. The first day I played on it, I actually recorded a few lessons with it because I felt so comfortable on it. It has a .065 tip opening which is right around where I prefer. I use to use play mostly around a .070 but I noticed my embouchure would get tired after awhile. With the .065 I don’t have that problem. ………………
Warburton Soprano Mouthpiece
The tip and rails of this mouthpiece are perfect. The tip curve is slightly different than the shape of the Vandoren Java reeds I use but it makes no difference in the way it plays. The baffle looks to be slightly lower than my Selmer Super Session and the chamber slightly larger. It’s a little smaller than my other soprano mouthpiece on the outside and my Vandoren Optimum ligature wouldn’t fit on it. I had to use a LAW ligature that I had in my ligature box.
It seems to have a fatter bigger sound to me than the other soprano mouthpiece I have tried. I think the bigger chamber allows this to happen. It is in no way a large chambered mouthpiece but it is slightly larger than others I have played.
Nothing stuck out intonation wise. It was good and within the normal spectrum for this Yamaha soprano.
This was a very easy mouthpiece to play and control. It is very even sounding up and down the horn.
Volume was great on this mouthpiece also. It played soft to very loud easily. Up high I had to be careful that the high notes didn’t get to bright and higher volumes but that is normal for this soprano.
