Claude Lakey

High-quality composite alto sax mouthpieces for great sound and projection.

The alto saxophone mouthpiece is the Claude Lakey go-to vintage mouthpiece. Ideal for lead alto, yet versatile enough to blend in with any horn section. Claude Lakey's most popular mouthpiece, it offers a bright and even sound that can be heard across the auditorium. Claude Lakey's alto saxophone mouthpiece has been favored by sax greats such as Charlie Mariano and Paul Desmond.

The alto saxophone mouthpiece is where it all started, and it has remained the central piece of the company's collection for over fifty years. Claude handcrafted the alto design himself when he was unsatisfied with any molds available to him. His innovation pioneered a better Jazz mouthpiece, the same mouthpiece they are still making today. You will reach new highs and lows, having freedom in your upper and lower register.

Claude created the alto mouthpiece as a jazz piece, but it’s bright sound and great projection make it the perfect choice for a variety of genres. We find it’s particularly stunning in rock groups, funk bands, and house music. You’ll find these mouthpieces give you the ability to stand out above the crowd, or blend into an ensemble. The versatility of this piece is outstanding, and you will soon find it becomes a favorite to play in several settings.

Each of these mouthpieces comes with the Compass Ligature. Claude Lakey's innovative design makes the Compass the most unique ligature on the market. Using BOA’s patented reel technology, the Compass holds your reed while allowing the most breathability. It provides 30 percent more volume with less effort. The Compass has a universal fit, so you can use it with any of your other mouthpieces as well. The Compass is backed by a lifetime warranty, so not only will your reed breathe easier, but you will too

The Claude Lakey Mouthpiece

By Tony Tate

Comments about Claude Lakey Hard Rubber Alto Saxophone Mouthpiece:

I have been using the Lakey since I was a Jr. in High School. I had to learn to play it in tune though. This mouthpiece has a wide variable tuning wise. Drop the jaw and the pitch drops. Squeeze it a little bit and the pitch goes up. It is a great mouthpiece for that reason. The other reasons is that it has a great sound. It is as edgy as it needs to be and, you can get that nice warm tone for less agressive moods.
