Aaron Drake’s Presence design is informed by the Soloist models of the classic era, while adding innovations that inspire modern saxophonists.

Based on the same essential mouthpiece played by Joe Henderson, the Presence incorporates a “U” shaped chamber with flat side walls. This acoustic design creates a specific feel to the air flow and projects a very substantial core tone. Drake’s design modifications optimize the Presence for larger tip-openings – something that was a challenge for players of the traditional version.l
