I just bought a 5*3 that I use mostly for jazz combo and solo work. It's amazing. It's bright, but not too bright. Has just the right amount of edge. Pair it with a good reed and ligature and you'll be in heaven. I'm using the 5*3 with Peter Ponzol 2 1/2 and Alexander Superial 2 1/2 reeds on a Rovner Dark Ligature. I couldn't ask for a better sounding, responsive, or more reasonably priced mouthpiece. It's simply the best bang for your buck!!
As a lead player in my high school jazz band, I needed a mouthpiece that can really cut and give me a big, commanding big band sound, but was cheaper than a Beechler or a Meyer. My Claude Lakey 6*3 was perfect for this situation. Not only is it affordable, but from it you can get that bright, edgy sound that's perfect for a lead alto player in any jazz band.
First, ?the? 7*3 is very easy to blow. Second if you want a decent sound you have to practice with this because it's so easy. I use a Rovner dark ligature with a Tenor sax Rico 3 1/2 reed. I know, ?it?s an? odd combination but for a guy that plays a lot of Bari and Tenor it works well. No need for a mic, you can get dirty and peel the paint off the walls or get a nice sweet sound. Easy to blend for lead or really stand out for small group solo work. I've been playing mine for about 24 yrs and can't find an alto mpc that I like better.
I bought the 7*3 Claude Lakey mouthpiece to try and get a larger jazzier sound out of my Selmer Bundy II alto sax. Despite using both my old metal ligature, a Rovner ligature and Rico Jazz Select 2H, 3S, and 3M reeds on the mouthpiece the thing consistently goes sharp after a minute or two of play. I tune it and retune it with my Center Pitch Universal for Band and Orchestra CP2 tuner to no avail. I have to pull the mouthpiece out to the edge of the cork just to get it briefly in tune. Maybe the mouthpiece will work on another brand of instrument, but so far it hasn't worked for me.
At first, I wanted to emulate Dave Koz and Eric Marienthal by buying a Beechler Bellite mouthpiece. My teacher recommended this. It was a fantastic choice. The best thing about this mouthpiece is its flexibility. It can be as harsh as you want, but at the same time you can make it be as soft and fantastic as any smooth jazz artist. I would recommend this mouthpiece to anyone! The setup I found to be the best with this particular mouthpiece is Rico Jazz Select Medium soft Unfiled reeds with an Oleg Mesh Ligature. Muy Bueno!
