This is a wonderful mouthpiece - centred, warm and with a pleasant buzz. It has decent power when needed and I would say it's good for most jazz settings. You will find this model offers great projection. The rollover baffle and carefully calculated floor slope promote an optimal projection. Just the right amount of undercutting on the side walls with a medium chamber.The best of both worlds! Each mouthpiece is hand faced by Aaron Drake, and is play tested and balanced to altissimo double F and above. Upon completion each is signed on the table (see pics) and marked with a serial number. These mouthpieces are handmade from start to finish at our production facility in Warren, NJ. Drake Mouthpieces is very proud that every aspect of these mouthpieces, and our other products, is "Home Grown" 100% made in the USA.
Our products are all made "in house" , no part of the manufacturing process is outsourced. Drake Mouthpieces have become known around the world for their high quality, innovative designs and unique material make up.
Drake is the first mouthpiece maker to utilize ceramic material to enhance the acoustic properties of our products. Our mouthpieces are revered for their accurate, immediate response and their incredible intonation stability and projection qualities. Aaron Drake personally hand faces and finishes every mouthpiece.Aaron is an accomplished saxophonist with Bachelor and Master Degrees in Performance from the Eastman School of Music. He is also the recipient of a "Downbeat" award for outstanding soloist, and has toured throughout Europe and America. Much of the knowledge and conclusions I have arrived at are through my studies and performance of the Saxophone.
Although mathematical accuracy is of extreme importance, how our mouthpieces play is of most critical concern. Every mouthpiece I make is calibrated and finished by hand as well as play tested to ensure the broadest spectrum of performance accuracy and expression.
