AN INNOVATIVE MOUTHPIECE WITH A VAST SOUND SPECTRUM
Francois Louis has made a name for himself as a true innovator with his mouthpieces and ligatures. This mouthpiece features two of these; his proprietary composite material and 'Sphere' chamber. The result is a mouthpiece that really resonates, allowing the sound to really speak. The sphere chamber in particular helps create a truly balanced tone, plenty of Highs, Mids and Lows coming through to create and rounded and vibrant sound.
Hand finished by Francois himself, these are truly outstanding mouthpieces
B285 is a 2.85 mm tip opening (112/00”) equivalent to the traditional “7” opening. Combined with a medium facing length and a soft facing curve. Great flexibility with a lot of projection and immediate response.
B305 is a 3.05 mm tip opening (120/00”) equivalent to the traditional “8” opening. Combined with a medium short facing length and a progressive facing curve. This is the “universal” mouthpiece: very stable, centred pitch, small enough to be playable by good amateurs and students, big enough to put real amount of air and be playable by professionals. Lots of projection with bottom on the attack of the note, very precise.
B325 is a 3.25 mm tip opening (128/00”) equivalent to the traditional “8*/9” opening. Combined with a medium long facing length and a soft facing curve. Due to the longer facing curve, it brings more resistance and takes more air. (This make it feel “bigger”) The soft curve gives it a lot of flexibility. This is the best mouthpiece for the professional player that needs to use all possibilities of dynamics, sound colors and range in one mouthpiece without having to struggle too hard on a real big mouthpiece.

'I think this is a corker of a mouthpiece! I found an enormous potential for expression and control available - the sound is very round and centred but there is an enormous potential to play with a very big dynamic range. The response is also excellent and it seems to be very economical with the usage of air. Definitely a mouthpiece to be considered by the serious baritone player!' Jim@sax.co.uk
