Drake - P.Christlieb Master Series - Tenor Ebonite Mouthpiece
This model is based on the very same "Bullet Chamber" design that Pete Christleib has played for over 50 years. The specially callibrated baffle is contoured to create an "aliveness" to the sound that is even through all the registers. The addition of the long silver plated banding on the shank helps to focus the core vibrational frequencies and generates greater projection.
"For a guy who has played on the same mouthpiece for 54 years, my new Aaron Drake recreation is incredibly accurate." Pete Christlieb
"This will work for the player looking to play in funk and pop settings - there's a great cut and brightness. Again, the resonance and vibrancy is inherent in the tone. If this pieces makes you start to play anything like Christlieb then you can be very happy with yourself!" Jim@sax.co.uk
