Yamaha has prepared an array of top-quality woodwind mouthpieces to meet the musical requirements of players at every level of proficiency in every genre. Yamaha mouthpieces are made of plastic or hard rubber. Both are designed to produce a well-balanced tone with all the flexibility the player requires. The 4C has a moderately narrow sized tip opening, and the 5C has a moderate sized tip opening. For beginners, narrow tip openings provide consistent intonation and easy response, generating a good, clear tone. More advanced players should take advantage of wide tip openings that help the player achieve greater volume and projection while providing a rich tone quality and easier vibrato. Yamaha mouthpieces are designed in consideration of tip openings and facing lengths, and are combined with an appropriate throat size, chamber size and shape, baffle shape and angle, bore size, window size, and facing curve depth. An inspection after every step of the manufacturing process ensures that the mouthpiece can be relied upon with confidence. -------------------------------------------------------- 4C - Easy to obtain a balanced, clear, and focused tone in any octave.
