Drake Resonance Chamber Mouthpieces
In 1990, Aaron Drake released the world’s first professional quality ceramic saxophone mouthpiece. This represents the most remarkable mouthpiece innovation in over half a century. Drake’s Resonance Chambers represent an evolutionary leap forward in the development of woodwind mouthpieces and their tonal characteristics.The combination of innovative resonant materials has been the hallmark of Drake Mouthpieces since the introduction of our ceramic saxophone mouthpieces in 1990.
Brass Resonance Chamber Mouthpieces encapsulate an exposed brass ring into the Vintage Resin mouthpiece. The result of combining these two materials is a broader spectrum of overtones than with brass or hard rubber mouthpieces. The Brass Resonance Chamber model outweighs the corresponding standard mouthpiece by approximately 30%. This added mass creates unbelievable amounts of resonance, harmonics and projection.
The Brass Resonance Mouthpieces offer a robust, husky tone with plenty of harmonics in the sound. It is somewhat more "spread" than the Ceramic version. It has impeccable intonation and presents consistent tonal characteristics over the entire range of the horn. This unique configuration also allows easier access to the altissimo register.
All Drake Resonance Chamber Mouthpieces are uniquely handmade. Each piece is play-tested and balanced up to altissimo double F and beyond.- Includes Drake Double Rail vintage resin Ligature, cap and case
