Here is another LAW prototype alto sax mouthpiece from Lawrie Waldron. This one has a baffle that is similar to the LAW “Buzzer” tenor piece. It looks like it is made from the same blank as the LAW tenor mouthpiece but is shorter. It has a fatter smoother sound than the bullet chamber prototype. I really liked the sound of this on the recording when I listened back to it. It is a nice bright sound but still fat. The tone has a nice “pop” to it. The intonation on it is as good as all of his pieces. Very fun to play. I’m having a hard time figuring out which one to keep.
