John Surman, ECM recording artist



After almost 50 years playing soprano sax, I thought that I was getting the best possible results from my horn with the mouthpieces that I had been using – until I recently tried a couple of models from Sopranoplanet! Joe suggested the Open Sky 2 and the Metropolitan to me. Both of these mouthpieces worked for me instantly and gave me a wonderfully even response over the whole instrument. I found the Metropolitain great for more intimate duo work whilst the Open Sky 2 gave me all the punch I needed for larger ensembles. Highly recommended!
