This mouthpiece is the result of yet another winning collaboration between Aaron Drake and the world’s top professional saxophone players. Boney originally contacted Aaron to request several Drake mouthpieces to try. Over time, the dialog between them grew into a custom mouthpiece project. Boney was seeking a mouthpiece that would combine the warmth and control associated with the best ebonite mouthpieces, with power and projection like a metal version. The Boney James Masters Series delivered exactly that. This mouthpiece incorporates a step baffle, a rounded baffle transition and a special reverse taper in the chamber. It allows the player a tremendous amount of projection and expressiveness while stabilizing the pitch. The unique, proprietary mouthpiece material is an industry first – incorporating ceramic with resin to achieve new levels of resonance.
The Boney James is available for Tenor, in the following tip openings: 7*(.107?), 8 (.112?), 8* (.117?), and 9 (.122?)
Read Boney’s personal endorsement of this amazing mouthpiece:
“This is the best mouthpiece I have ever played. I am proud to have my signature on it. It gives me ultimate control over my tone. The Drake Boney James Master Series has all the projection and brightness of a metal mouthpiece but I can produce a very round and warm sound as well. It is truly a joy to play.”
– Boney James
