Sound is not the easiest thing to describe, my priorities for saxophone sound in order of importance are as follows:
BEAUTIFUL :: The saxophone is one of the most beautiful instruments there is, the sound should be big and rich and beautiful.
DYNAMIC RANGE :: It should be easy to play up and down the horn, soft to loud.
EDGE :: Everyone has different tastes and perceptions, but some edge on top of the sound is desirable. Each mouthpiece is extensively play tested and the facing curve adjusted until it meets exacting musical standards!
Each mouthpiece must pass the following tests!
The mouthpiece must respond with the slightest amount of air and support from the embouchure.
It must play evenly from top to bottom, meaning, adjacent notes must center in the same way.
At medium volumes it must have a round and pleasing sound.
Most importantly for a Jazz mouthpiece, at more extreme volume levels the sound has to hold together and develop some real power!
