Yanagisawa mouthpieces are high-quality products that get hand-finished at the factory and that are individually tested for quality. Every one that I have ever played has been very solid. They are Meyer-like in the medium bright tone that they get, but they have their own vibe as well. This is a great place to start if you are playing a modern soprano and looking for a good tone for not much money. I have several of these, so let me know if you’re looking for a different tip opening.
