Mouthpiece only exercises are an essential part of woodwind playing, but can sound as loud as 100Db! The Saxlab silencer reduces this volume by 5-10 times, allowing you to play mouthpiece exercises without disturbing neighbors!
The silencer for tenor saxophone for example goes with every brand of tenor saxophone mouthpieces. Unfortunately, each of these brands has its own bore. Therefore, the silencer's coupling piece has four springy elements, which compensate for the differences among the bores and provide a tight fit at the mouthpiece. A cone at the root of the coupling piece creates the tightness. As for the clarinet, the mouthpiece-cork does the sealing while compensating, to a certain extent, for the differences in diameter.
