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.
Ceramic Resonance Chamber Mouthpieces incorporate Drake’s own proprietary ceramic material into the chamber of the Vintage Resin mouthpiece. This embedded ceramic “ring” is exposed inside of the mouthpiece. The resulting change to the density of the mouthpiece adds new depth and richness to the sound. The way the air travels over the ceramic material contributes to warmth and vibrancy, while maintaining a strong core fundamental tone. The round, full sound of the Ceramic Resonance Chamber Mouthpiece is consistent over the full range of the instrument. The response is instantaneous and the intonation is perfect.
This is an excellent choice for R&B, funk, or contemporary jazz settings. Featuring a longer step type baffle, this design has great projection.
