Drake - Crossover II - Baritone Ebonite Mouthpiece
"The manufacturer's blurb describes this one as 'punchy' and really there is no other way to describe this piece! There's plenty of drive and power on hand, and at the same time that typical depth of tone available from all Drake mouthpieces. Great for soul/funk use!" Jim@sax.co.uk
Featuring an innovative chamber design, these mouthpieces will give the projection and “punch” that you are looking for. The medium reverse taper / venturi chamber is ideal for massive projection, while still maintaining a depth and balance in the overtone series. Each of the mouthpieces features the same chamber desig with variation in the baffle angle and floor slope to meet the exact tonal preference of the player and the type of Baritone they are using.
You will find that these designs are well suited for everything from the Big Band setting to Funk, R&B and Jazz

"...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." - Aaron Drake
