Drake - Reso Chamber - Tenor Ebonite Mouthpiece
Drake are now offering their version of Link’s classic ‘Reso’ chamber design. For a beautiful full-bodied dark core sound, this mouthpiece is a great choice! Perfect for jazz players!
Currently there is a penchant for reproducing classic mouthpieces of the past, and the original Otto Link Reso chamber was one of those that stood out amongst the others, defined by its smooth and dark tone. This piece is defined by its large chamber, significantly larger than any of the other Drake models, and a combination of rollover baffle and undercut side walls.

"Players are often looking for that solid core sound with a real depth to it, but then with an ability to be able to cut through and fizzle when needed - this one has the former quality, but not the brightness bit on top! It is designed as being honourable to that traditionalist outlook, with pure breadth and depth to the sound. If you are looking for maximum fullness and breadth, this is surely a huge contender! The great thing about a really-well-made handmade mouthpiece such as this is that the tone is so balanced and even, and you have no issues moving through to the altissimo register and retaining a continuity of tone and response."
