Description

The SR Technologies Tenor Europa Hard Rubber is our newest Model. Fashioned from the finest German hard rubber, the Europa is a modern tenor classic, with a more slender profile, for those players who desire hard rubber. 

The tip opening is .106 inches, We merged the baffle of our Tenor Pro with the round chamber of our Tenor Titan, to create an entirely new model, flexible for most styles of music, without the stuffiness or tubbiness traditionally associated with hard rubber mouthpieces. The response and tonal colors are unsurpassed. Try one today! 

This new ebonite model from SR Technologies of California should satisfy the needs of many tenor players. So often I hear comments like, ‘I’m looking for something with the sound of an Otto Link, but without the stuffiness and with a bit more projection’. Well I think that the Europa model does exactly that. 

The Europa model comes equipped with a Rovner cap and ligature.

"This new ebonite model from SR Technologies of California should satisfy the needs of many tenor players. So often I hear comments like, ‘I’m looking for something with the sound of an Otto Link, but without the stuffiness and with a bit more projection’. Well I think that the Europa model does exactly that. Why it’s called the Europa, I don’t know! Is there a particular sound that is thought of as European? Whatever the answer is, this mouthpiece provides a warm, vintage sound but with less resistance than a Link. It also feels like it has more clarity and ease of top note production. It has a very large, rounded chamber, which must be responsible for producing that vintage sound, and a medium grade baffle, giving that added clarity. This is a must-try mouthpiece for those tenor players looking to maintain the warmth of tone but increase their projection. The Europa model comes equipped with a Rovner cap and ligature." Jim@sax.co.uk 

SR Technologies Mouthpieces

We came across these mouthpieces through the recommendation of professional players. I wasn't sure how the polycarbonate resin material would effect to overall tone. My previous experiences of plastic based materials have been disappointing. But what a sound! Bright, edgy but still with a great rich tonal core; it is incredibly free blowing and responsive. My personal favourite is the L-85, the slightly larger tip opening gave helped create more body to the tone. Plus if you get caught by some trigger-happy trombone players, it doubles as a small bullet proof vest! But seriously it is great for funk and lead work, bring it on Maceo Parker!

Hand cut from top quality German ebonite to reproduce the tone & response of the much sought after vintage Meyer mouthpieces. Nice soft undertone with a massive amount of power when pushed. Enough to compete with most metal mouthpieces. The greatest dynamic range of any we've tested and our favourite ebonite model.

The SR Alto Legend and L-85 mouthpieces are based on the design of classic "New York" mouthpieces. The "Legends" are identical except for tip opening. The Legend tip opening is .078 inches and the L-85 tip opening is .085inches. The Titan has a .076 inch lay with a slightly raised baffle for faster response & brighter sound.
