Now a JodyJazz Company, Rousseau Mouthpieces are hand-finished, gauged and play tested at the JodyJazz Factory and held to the highest quality standards.

The Original Rousseau since 1972 - Warm Dark Sound.

The Classic R Series Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece is the original E. Rousseau design, first introduced in 1972. When Dr. Rousseau couldn't find any commercially available saxophone mouthpieces on the market to recommend to his classical students he decided to try and design his own mouthpiece. The R Series Saxophone mouthpieces were inspired by a mouthpiece that Marcel Mule gave Dr. Rousseau in 1961. The Classic R Series is designed to meet the needs of the serious classical performer. These mouthpieces provide a warm, centered tone, positive response, and powerful projection with medium resistance and solid control.

What makes the Classic R Alto Better for Concert Band, Saxophone Quartet, Orchestra and Solos?

Intonation, darkness of sound and excellent blending capability of the Classic R series are the qualities that make it a favorite of band directors. The R Series was designed by Eugene Rousseau, one of the most significant players and teachers of saxophone for the past fifty years. Rousseau is not only one of the world's finest classical players and a most prominent teacher; he also learned about woodwind acoustics and design from Charles Houvenaghel, regarded at that time as the greatest acoustician since Adolph Sax.

This Classic R Alto saxophone mouthpiece provides for superior tone, responsiveness, and projection. It promotes a full range of tonal colors and excellent tonal center. The Classic R is designed for natural reed fit and easier tuning. The Classic R is available for all saxophone models (S/A/T/B) and can provide a consistent tonal base for the entire saxophone section and small ensembles.

Rousseau mouthpieces are designed for saxophonists at every level from World Class Concertizing Artists, To University Professors to aspiring students from Middle School to College.
