About my blog
In this project we will reverse engineer a mystical part of the saxophone: the mouthpiece. Focused on optimizing the acoustic properties, this includes making CT-scans, parametric modeling and high-grade metal printing. You will autonomously contact several experts and well known (jazz)musicians. Experience with reed or woodwind instruments is preferred! (Expert: Zjenja Doubrovski)

This project concerns the old art of custom saxophone mouthpieces:
The aim is to optimize the acoustic properties of this important part of the saxophone.
By using technologies such as CT scanning, current moutpieces can be analyzed and modeled.
High-end Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) of metal will be used to manufacture the optimized mouthpieces.
