Description

"I think Drake has cracked the nut with this one - attempting to capture that vintage NY Meyer tone. So what are the ingredients? A nice blend of depth, clarity and that classic 'buzz'. I feel all these qualities are inherent in this mouthpiece, so rather than spend a fortune on trying to source a Vintage Meyer you should stop by one of our stores and try out one of these!" Jim@sax.co.uk

We have designed this exciting new model to embody the characteristics of the great vintage NY Meyers with the added control and response qualities that Drake has become know for. The rollover baffle transitions to a gradual floor slope that delivers the air column at a carefully calibrated angle to give maximum projection and depth of tone. The medium "venturi" type chamber also contributes to a controled evenness of timbre through the registers. The beak angle and body dimensions have also been design for optimal embouchure comfort and beauty.

Made from Drake Vintage Resin.

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.

"...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
