Hi DMatias

 

Any mouth piece will do just find a mount piece without bending.

what are you playing at the moment? My guess is a yamaha 4c would be a good upgrade from the stock mpc which came with the sax.After a few weeks upgrade to yamaha 5c.These are fairly cheap(about £25) but are rated as good.Best of luck mally

You should go to a store that carries a lot of saxophones, mouthpieces, and accessories and try out a bunch of mouthpieces. Experience the difference for yourself. Your mouthpiece, reed, ligature combination determines your sound characteristic much more than the horn. A beginner may have difficulty playing a large chamber mouthpiece or a very open mouthpiece. Otherwise it's all personal preference and type of sound.
