Here is our new Large Chamber Soprano model. The design of this mouthpiece has been modeled after the Otto Link Slant model, with a few modifications to help facilitate better stability of pitch and greater projection. The floor slope has been raised and extended. Amazing warmth and depth to the tone with a great expressive range. Featuring beautifully under cut walls and a chamber dimension larger than the shank diameter with a carefully contoured roll over baffle.
"A very centred and responsive sound. Nicely focussed and with a good amount of bite - plenty of scope for pushing." Jim@sax.co.uk

"...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
