For much of his career, Phil Woods played an un-modified New York Meyer 5M, given to him by a friend in the 1950's. The Drake Phil Woods Mouthpiece is an exact reproduction of this treasured piece of history. The Phil Woods is the quintessential straight-ahead jazz mouthpiece. The geometry is identical to Phil's mouthpiece, and offers the player something new in their experience.With the use of modern materials and design technology, Aaron Drake has respectfully carried this near-mythical mouthpiece forward into a new era. You can expect a pleasant amount of resistance, perfect for producing a warm, rich tone, with pop and projection when desired. The response is homogenous throughout the full range of the instrument and is capable of full-sounding altissimo. Overall, the tone is evocative of the best hard rubber mouthpieces of the golden era of jazz.
A vast array of ligatures made for Meyer-style Hard Rubber Alto mouthpieces will fit this mouthpiece. However, the mouthpiece comes with a custom-fit Drake Quad Point Ligature. Each mouthpiece is hand made by Master Artisan Aaron Drake, and receives its own unique serial number.
