Laskey French Horn MouthpieceYears of making custom French horn mouthpieces for players from around the world has helped determine what players want and need to make a difference in their sound. These features are now available to all players in the form of the Laskey standard product line of French horn mouthpieces. The Laskey standard French horn mouthpiece line features a unique rim contour. There is definition to the inside diameter and yet the roundness of the rim shape allows for easy movement, as well as a high degree of control and flexibility.

I ordered the 725G, in search of a mouthpiece sounding identical to the Schilke 30, but with a bigger inner diameter. Most people say that 75G is the best size, and I agree that the 725G is a bit too small for overall playing, especially when you are required to play ff.
Advantages: If you like the sound of "Farkas-style" mouthpieces, the Laskey G cup is about as close as you'll get. The amount of "ring" is perfect, making the sound neither dull nor shrill. The rim is very comfortable yet flexibility is also excellent. The mouthpiece in general is very easy to play, and the high register sounds gorgeous and is secure.
Disadvantages: I found it difficult to articulate clearly on this mouthpiece, and note accuracy suffered slightly, though the latter may have more to do with getting used to setting up on a thinner, rounder rim. The mouthpiece also edges out relatively quickly, and the maximum volume is a bit limiting for overall playing. If you're not careful, the sound can become too bright and shrill because the cup is rather small and shallow. A bigger (75G) or deeper (725F) mouthpiece may fix this problem. Finally, the low register does suffer some, but not in proportion to the improvement in the high register.
Overall: Laskey mouthpieces are a bit more expensive than big-name manufacturers, but the extra cost is absolutely worth it. You'll get superior consistency and amazing tone quality. It really felt like a better mouthpiece in general. As long as you choose the correct size mouthpiece for your embouchure, I am fully convinced you will love Laskeys.
I got a 75G and it has quickly become my favorite mouthpiece. The rim has just the right bite, the cup isn't deep but has a nice, full sound, and I feel comfortable with it from the lowest lows to the highest highs. Mouthpieces are personal, but Laskey G cups and J cups seem to be gaining popularity very quickly, so it might be the best place to start.
I've owned and played on the 80G, 80F, 80E Laskey mouthpieces. The 80F was my primary mouthpiece for about 18 months. The overall impression I have is one of a very efficient design regarding the shape of the cup, regardless of which cup depth you choose to play on. Laskey also provides enough choice in his line of mouthpieces to allow you to find the right size in cup depth and inner diameter to allow for the right combination to accommodate your particular playing needs and sensibilities in sound quality.
Unfortunately, the above average thickness and overly round shape of the rim is an impediment to clean articulation and to a much lesser degree flexibility. My hope is that he will provide his French horn mouthpieces with different rim options in the future because in every other respect they are excellent mouthpieces. They are certainly worth trying. Maybe they will work for you.
