The Chubasco is excellent for those looking for a mouthpiece that projects, and holds up well while performing the powerful dynamic contrasts of lead playing. While the core of tone holds together the upper over tones cut through ensembles and allow the soloist to be heard. The rim is designed for maximum comfort without loss of sound, and ease of playability. The Chubasco produces the largest sound when compared to our other jazz mouthpieces, giving the soloist plenty of room for dynamic contrast and artistic expression. Features a shallow bowl shape cup.
