"Aaron Drake mouthpieces are deeply settled in the golden tradition of jazz saxophone, but they are simultaneously as modern, as the mouthpiece can be. The easyness of blowing and the richness of sound are incredible! After even one time you use Aaron Drake handcrafted mouthpiece, your longing is irresistable until you reach one, that you miss. Pure mastery in craftsmanship bringing pure beauty in the sound. I raise my hat up!"
