 Saxophone mouthpiece for a clarinet player
Author: kawallace91 
Date:   2012-07-18 16:24

I'm currently a music ed major, and I'm starting to get in to some private teaching. I'm primarily a clarinet player, but I told the owner of the store I'll be teaching at that I could also do beginning lessons for a few other instruments, one being the sax. I took a woodwind methods course a few semesters back and really didn't have trouble with the sax. I plan on buying a used instrument (I bought a used flute a while back that has served me well so far), so I'm willing to invest a little more to get a good mouthpiece. What are some good sax mouthpieces out there, or at least some good brand names? I'd like to spend less than $150 if possible. If it helps, on the clarinet, I play a Vandoren M13 mouthpiece with V12 reeds, strength 3.5+. I don't really plan to do jazz either, so I'm looking more for a "classical" mouthpiece.

Also, it seems to me that Selmer and Yamaha are generally good brands for saxes. Are there any I should try to stay away from? Last I checked at the pawn shop, they only had a Bundy and a Vito, which I know generally aren't great. For my purposes though, I think they'd probably be okay.
