Rousseau New Classic Alto Sax Mouthpiece
Eugene Rousseau “New Classic” Alto Sax Mouthpiece.
NC4 – 0.065″ tip opening. Facing length 18mm.
Where many mouthpieces have a rollover baffle, this one has a little depression or “lake”.
I tried to capture this in photos.
Below is some verbiage I copied and pasted:
“The E. Rousseau New Classic Soprano Sax mouthpiece, designed with an entirely enhanced choice of facings, was developed to complement the highly successful ‘R’ series. With redesigned chamber, a unique baffle and sidewalls to provide an even more centered tone, a fresh tip rail for a more precise fit of reed, and a longer shape for a more secure fit and easier tuning, Rousseau New Classic Mouthpieces meet the demands of the world’s top performers. The Rousseau New Classic Mouthpiece features a unique, practical design that balances the baffle, sidewalls, and facing. Cap and Ligature NOT Included.”
“New Classic NC Series features a unique chamber with specially designed baffle and side walls to provide a more controlled tone. [S/A/T/B] The tenor has a redesigned tip rail for natural reed fit and a longer shape for easier tuning. The new Baritone model allows better response in the low register. All NC models are available in four facings.”
