The Hoss for Soprano
Saxquest is very excited to present our line of professional soprano mouthpieces. The “Hoss” is a super easy responding mouthpiece and is perfect for anyone wanting a more free blowing mouthpiece. 
We wanted to specifically make something directly in the vein of a highly exceptional slant signature hard rubber Berg Larsen we have kept around the shop as a stash piece. Through a collaboration with Eric Falcon we are very proud to now present the Hoss for soprano. One of the most free blowing and easy responding soprano pieces ever! 
The construction of the Hoss showcases a straight and wide open medium/large inner throat. Leading away from the inner throat there is a classic “Bullet Chamber” configuration which shapes its way into the steady angle of the mouthpiece’s floor and baffle area. The combination of the chamber and floor shape allows air to move through the piece with a lot of speed and efficiency.  Projection and ease of play are absolutely fantastic. In regards to color the Hoss does have a nice brilliant clarity to the way it plays but still maintains a warm center of sound. In other words it is a warm piece which can easily achieve a large amount of punch and power with out becoming overly bright or piercing. In direct comparison to the Saxquest Voice the Hoss is just a little bit warmer in color.
The Hoss was  manufactured in collaboration with mouthpiece maker Eric Falcon. It is made from ultra-premium solid German bar stock hard rubber. It is turned on a CNC controlled high precision lathe and then milled on an absolute state of the art 5-axis vertical mill. Shaping of the throat, baffle & tip rail; profiling of the chamber; under-cutting of the side walls, and cutting of the window is all accomplished using three strokes per pass. This results in fabulously tight tolerances which leads to incredible consistency from piece to piece.
The Hoss is modeled after a 50's vintage hard rubber "Slant" Duck Bill. These pieces predate the current Berg facing system. But to give the user an idea we would classify these pieces as being most similar to a 0 or a 1 baffle height. If you have any questions about the pieces or trail terms please feel free to give us a call or send messages directly to the product testing department. zac@saxquest.com. 
In order to keep the price on all of our mouthpieces at a lower premium we sell them with out a ligature and cap set. If you would like to add a ligature to the purchase please make the selection from the drop down menu while adding the mouthpiece to the your cart.
