"I play the E. Rousseau mouthpieces because it feels and performs as a natural extension of my concept of sound. Tone is well-centered in all registers and response is exactly what I need for my best performances. I also love this mouthpiece for the sound clarity. From attack to release, it is very clear."
Roberto Todini is Professor of Saxophone at the Conservatory "F. Morlacchi "of Perugia, Italy.
“I've tested with other famous mouthpieces, and I must tell you that I really like the E. Rousseau Studio Jazz mouthpiece. Uniformity of sound, dark color, easy to play, easy on the staccato, even in all registers, and it holds together at all volumes.”
Nuno Miguel Silva, Music Conservatory Choral Phydellius, at the Conservatory Jaime Chavinha (CAORG), at Vitorino Matono’s Music Institute and at the Conservatory Sons e Compassos (Sintra). Portugal
“The sound of the Rousseau NC mouthpiece is well-centered, with good harmonics and projection, and the tone is darker and full. As for the Studio Jazz mouthpiece, the sound is bright but without exaggeration, powerful and moldable, exactly what I was looking for from a mouthpiece with a medium opening”.
Johan van der Linden, professor of saxophone at the Artez Conservatory in Zwolle and the Hku in Utrecht and was an original member of the world famous Aurelia Saxophone Quartet The Netherlands

“E. Rousseau New Classic (NC4) are best multi-use mouthpieces, from chamber music to orchestral level dynamics. They provide the widest dynamic range of all classical saxophone mouthpieces. E.Rousseau Studio Jazz mouthpieces provide a grace and freedom that is just perfect. The pitch is superb on all saxophones and it does NOT exasperate your chops at all like other jazz mouthpieces do. In combination with New Classic, you can have it both ways –a professional classical saxophone mouthpiece and professional jazz performance mouthpiece – with E. Rousseau.”

“With my E. Rousseau RC4 mouthpiece I achieve a very warm sound. It is a very easy and comfortable mouthpiece to play. It is also highly responsive and consistent through all registers. It allows me to reach the altissimo register and the low tones effortlessly and achieve a full rounded tone. I sincerely believe my Rousseau RC4 Mouthpiece provides me the quality of sound I have been looking for.”
Sofia Zumbado, SZ Music, Mexico
"I play E. Rousseau mouthpieces because I have not found another mouthpiece that will give me such control in sound and dynamics than the NC4. I have used this mouthpiece since 1995 and I don´t think I will ever change it."
Michael Duke, Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Sydney University, Australia
“I find the NC model to be quite flexible in terms of opening up the sound and delivery of tonal presence. It has a great deal of warmth and projection which make this mouthpiece excellent for advancing and professional players.”
