“I’m performing on the Drake Contemporary Alto Sax mouthpiece. This mouthpiece is by far THEE BEST mouthpiece I’ve ever experienced! The reaction of the mouthpiece is solid, very solid! It does not in any way, shape, or form, hold you back as a player. Never have I felt a hard rubber mouthpiece cut through sound like this! Aaron Drake is on to something good with this design! When I first experienced this, I was blown away. I could definitely tell hard work & dedication was put into this mouthpiece. After speaking with Aaron Drake, I knew then that they were indeed. Each mouthpiece is personally handcrafted by him, & the dedication that he has put into each mouthpiece shows. I’m very excited about being a part of the Drake family!

Saxappeal recently released his 3rd solo project, entitled “Black Gold”, which peaked at #4 on the iTunes Top 100 Jazz Charts, and has surpassed 100,000 streams on Spotify in it’s first 7 weeks of being released.
