Recently, I bought a mouthpiece from a company out of Texas, Drake Mouthpieces. I bought the NY Jazz Tenor model. I had heard such great sounds from reviews on YouTube. However, after a couple of mouths with it, I don’t think I like it; at least not what I’m getting out of it.
It sounds great when I can find that sweet spot with the right reed. But I guess I’m lazy. I don’t like to work that much. I may keep it. I may sell it. At this point, I don’t know. If you’re interested, contact me through this site. It is in very good condition (like new).
I wish it had worked out. It really does sound great at times. It’s not consistent for me. More likely, it is that I’m not consistent enough to make it happen. No intended negativity toward the Drake company because lots of people sound great on this piece. That’s why I wanted to try it. Maybe when I’m better it will be different.
