David Hite DH117 Premiere Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece
Produced in one medium preferred facing, the Hite 111 PREMIERE clarinet mouthpiece line is hand finished to the highest professional standards, much more accurately than higher-priced production finished mouthpieces. The acoustically efficient design results in a pleasant, resonant sound produced without excessive physical effort. Although marketed as student line mouthpieces, PREMIERES are used by many professionals because of their rich sound and flexibility. These mouthpieces are extremely popular as "step-up" mouthpieces for players who would benefit from a better mouthpiece but are put off by the higher prices. PREMIERE mouthpieces are extremely reed friendly. Because they do not require excessive biting or force of air to make them play, they have a profound influence on the development of an ideal embouchure.
PREMIERE by HITE mouthpieces are made of plastic - the same type of material used in many older professional mouthpieces. A super tough mouthpiece tooth patch is supplied with each mouthpiece to help control teeth wear and improve the player's auditory perception. Like the professional J & D HITE line, PREMIERE mouthpieces are rough-faced using our personally crafted facing cams. Then each one is personally hand-faced and finished by Jean and David Hite. Each PREMIERE mouthpiece is individually tested and adjusted to the highest performance standards.
Note: Does not come with a cap or ligature.
