Create with a legend, Masters Series, Drake Mouthpieces, Jerry Bergonzi mouthpiece, Jerry Bergonzi Jerry Bergonzi MASTER SERIES Tenor Mouthpiece 

This model has been developed through a close colaboration between Aaron Drake and Jerry Bergonzi.  It has taken over two years to refine the various design ellements incorporated in this model.  The fundamental design is based on Jerry's personal EB from the 1960's.  The classic "crescent" shaped baffle transitions to a recalibrated floor contour and ultimately a round large chamber.  The tip and side rails are finished to the exact specifications that Jerry prefers - this slightly wider contour helps to generate a thickness and stability in the sound and attack.  The addition of the banding on the shank helps to focus the core vibrational frequencies and generates greater projection.

 

"What I look for in a mouthpiece is the ability to shape the sound that I hear in my head with the ease of articulation. Drake's mouthpieces do that for me"- Jerry Bergonzi
