Drake Ceramic Large Chamber Soprano Mouthpiece

This is a another new Drake ceramic soprano mouthpiece that I am trying out.  this piece has a .065 tip opening and a larger chamber in it than I have seen in other soprano mouthpieces.  This mouthpiece plays with a big fat tone.  Much more spread sounding than the  Drake small chambered mouthpiece. If you listen to both clips you can hear the difference between a fatter more spread sound and a more focused direct sound.

I really liked this soprano mouthpiece a lot. It has a fat thick sound to it that I really enjoyed.  The intonation was great on it  as well as the notes being even up and down the horn.  I think the ceramic material gives a little bit more of a ring to the sound than you get from a hard rubber mouthpiece.

    Is this the “Double Ring” soprano series? I went to the Drake webpage and didn’t find other kind. I didn’t see they offer different chamber sizes.


    • I’m not sure what model that was. If you contact him and ask for the soprano piece with the large chamber that Steve Neff played I’m sure he will know which model it was.
