Fred Lebayle (born March 28 1960) worked as a metal tool worker in his
father's company in France. As an enthusiastic saxophone player, he
started designing mouthpieces for himself, trying to emulate Charlie
Parker's sound. In 1987 he set up his own mouthpiece business as a
one-man venture. Today his work is known and appreciated worldwide by
some of the finest musicians such as Chris Potter, Wayne Shorter,
Branford Marsalis, Ron Blake, David Liebman, Ravi Coltrane, Marcus
Strickland, Najee, Greg Osby, Jan Gabarek, Candy Dulfer and many other
professionals whom sound is shaped by Lebayle's work.
All mouthpieces are truly handmade, making each one a singular and
authentic mouthpiece with its own personality. Lebayle uses only the
finest material, be it hard rubber, wood or metal.
