Based on the traditional German sound, Stephan Leitzinger has created a
completely new bocal type which combines modern requirements with traditional
sound quality. Stephan Leitzinger has succeeded in achieving a sound that is
equally rich in all registers while providing secure intonation and excellent
response quality. Each bocal is individually soldered, hammered and bent by
hand, then plated with either silver, gold or platinum. With these bocals the
musician can play in a relaxed manner, be it pianissimo or fortissimo, while
achieving the richest sound volume.
