Chedeville RC Alto Saxophone Mouthpieces: Everything You Need to Know

Mouthpieces may be small, but they can have a massive impact on your music. The Chedeville RC Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece is specially made to shape the tone and deliver superb playability in any music genre. And, no matter which mouthpiece you choose, the pristine consistency you’ll find will surely surprise you.

Combination of Great Tonal Qualities

So many great tonal qualities are not often found in a single mouthpiece. Yet, the Chedeville RC produces a dark, robust tone, gives you control and ease of movement up and down the scale, and easily provides articulation and projection all in one. You can even play altissimo with clarity. Spend more time focusing on playing and less time on whether or not you need a new mouthpiece.

Proprietary Chedeville Rubber

Chedeville has been making Chedeville Rubber since before World War II. Softer than other rubbers, this material gives off a much warmer tone. Using special tools, Chedeville’s staff carefully gives each mouthpiece a round chamber (hence the name RC) which shapes the sound to perfection. Each mouthpiece comes with a bamboo canister and mouthpiece pouch so you can enjoy its high quality for years to come.

Made with Consistency

Every mouthpiece is created in the Chedeville factory. Cut by a CNC machine from a bar stick, each mouthpiece comes out 85% completed before it’s touched up by hand to eliminate much of the inconsistency found in other mouthpieces. This process still retains that personal hand touch in its finishing stages including the baffle, tip rail, and table.
