Claude Lakey mouthpieces deliver a full, creamy tone but with potential for a bright, percussive edge. A good choice for any player wanting projection and bite but without resorting to a metal 'piece.
•5* (.065) Control your sound with ease. Clear, even, round ,warm sound. Good projection.
•6* (.070) Bright, clear, centered sound that will let your horn respond the way you want. Great projection and ease of play.
•7* (.075) Same characteristics as the 6* with a longer facing and wider tip opening. You can put more air in the horn but still have that clear, centered sound.
