We appreciate your patience and understanding.
This latest addition to our product line up represents a culmination of our most innovative acoustic designs. These mouthpieces are handmade from beginning to end at our production facility in Plainfield, NJ - no aspect of fabrication is outsourced.
Aaron Drake has developed an innovative manufacturing process where by each mouthpiece is created from a one piece casting. This amazing forging process is currently patent pending.

Our goal in these designs has been to achieve a balance of the essential design elements. Each piece is precision hand faced and finished with great attention and care to detail.

“For several years now I have had this mouthpiece in mind. After going through multiple prototypes and a lot of experimentation, it is finally ready. There is something about the classic combination of the design elements that makes this a very special mouthpiece. I hope you feel the same way when you play one. “
- Aaron Drake
This classic vintage design is modeled after the highly desirable “Stubbies” from the 1950’s. This mouthpiece features very deep undercutting on the side walls and a large chamber. Couple this with a medium high rollover baffle and a classic tapered window design, and you have the recipe for a killer piece! Wonderfully free blowing and brilliantly responsive from the bottom to the top of the horn.
These handmade mouthpieces are made from a one piece casting technique, and are finished entirely by hand..
Each mouthpiece is finished in 24K gold plate and includes a Rovner L3 cap and ligature.
