Tenor Metal Jazz . This is a very impressive new metal mouthpiece
for tenor. It seems to have a nice compact and centred tone with a
pleasant edge. It glides up to the altissimo very easily but doesn’t
shriek like some mouthpieces do. Particularly I found attacking
altissimo G (the first one, not the octave!) very easy - this note is
notorious for ‘breaking-up’. It also has a good subtone and the response
when tonguing feels very immediate. Jim@sax.co.uk

Tenor Metal Studio. Quite different in feel to the Jazz, the
raised baffle gives a much more one-dimensional bright sound. I
personally found it hard to control the squeaks in the second octave,
but I’m sure you can largely get used to the way it responds. Although
we are not listing the alto version, as it is just too bright, the Tenor
metal Studio is workable, but is best kept for pop solo work! -

plated metal Fusion ligature & cap.)

Lebayle Mouthpieces

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.
