The most common question we receive is “which tip opening should I get?” If you are asking this question the answer is probably to choose the 5 tip opening. Watch this video for an in depth explanation of everything you need to know about saxophone mouthpiece tip openings.

What Cats are Saying about the BURNIN'

Better Sax BURNIN' Mouthpiece Players

Jay, I  use a Burnin’ sax mouthpiece for my Better Sax alto… and love it.  Best blowing and sounding combination I’ve ever played.

I received my 7* tenor mouthpiece about three weeks ago.  I’m playing exclusively on my Burnin’ alto piece and am loving it.

On tenor, I’ve been playing all metal mouthpieces for four decades, but have been experimenting with rubber on tenor for the past year.
It’s taken a while to find the ideal reed for my new Burnin’ piece, but I’ve now found it.  I had to go a little firmer on the reed than I normally play, but now I can get a nice indoor Link tone and volume with it, and can get a funkier sound with some edge when I need it.

I can see playing this new Burnin’ tenor piece full-time, for sure.

Congratulations again to you and Jody on another great mouthpiece.  I really do think these are going to be the vintage pieces of the future.  I knew Ron Coehlo very well (RPC), and have worked with Phil Barone on my tenor set-up over the years.  You guys are really killing it!

Just wanted to thank you. I’m really enjoying the mouthpiece and my new journey with the tenor sax. Loving it! And you were right. It blows easily – no feeling of needing more air.

Jay, I just received my BetterSax Burnin’ Tenor mouthpiece (7*) and I don’t want to stop playing! It’s fabulous. I like it so much that I’m ordering the Burnin’ alto piece today.

Are you and Jody Espina ever going to come out with a Burnin’ baritone mouthpiece? If so, that’s my main horn, and I want to get on the list RIGHT NOW!

Hello Jay.

WOW!!! WOW!!! WOW!!!

Received my Burnin’ alto mouthpiece this week and what a pleasure!  It is so responsive and it is giving me much pleasure in playing.  I know this may sound weird, but I have confidence in it because of its consistency from what I am hearing and feeling.  Playing is more comfortable and relaxing.

Thank you!

“I just received the Alto Burnin’ #5 mouthpiece. I put a reed on it and began to play. WOW WOW WOW It’s awesome! Thank you very much. It’s going to make playing the Better Alto Sax much easier and more enjoyable.”

“To my fellow alto sax players… please do yourself a favor and grab this BURNIN’ mouthpiece. Make sure you pick up the ring ligature (amazing response with it). This free-blowing piece gives me all the sizzle and body that a hard hitting sax player would want. I’ll be selling my other high end pieces as this BURNIN’ piece just replaced them all.”
