    I've been trying to get my hands on a Lebayle Jazz chamber hard rubber tenor mouthpiece, but they're hard to find. Nothing on WWBW/eBay/etc. on the facing I want (around 7*). I could order one, but it'd take months. On the other hand, there's a fair number of LR and LRII chamber Lebayles out...

    Hello, Here is my new song, made for my wife’s birthday : ) I’ve put some work in this and I’m pretty happy with the result. Note that I only use one sax. A tenor... and a pitching effect!! Everything is made on iPhone 7 Plus with GarageBand, recorded in Saxmute One with Gear4music...
  3. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    There seems to be a new 2017 version for Lebayle LR iii metal. The design is different at the end of the shank. It comes with the new red cylindrical container with no ligature ( I guess they dont sell ligature now ). I believe the seller is Mr. Landrus...

    Hello everyone, I have a Lebayle LRII metal tenor MPC which I am using right now with JAVA red 2.5 on my keilwerth SX90.. I love the tone and the power of the MPC but I am not a big fan of its performance.. Just wondering if anyone knows similar mpcs with relatively close tonal qualities...

    Hello everyone, Just wondering if anyone is using the Lebayle LRII metal tenor and what reed goes well with it. I have tried many brands/thicknesses, the only one that worked was the Java Red and green to a certain extent. All others have been dead or squeaky.. Not sure if there's something...
  6. Ligatures
    Hello everyone, I recently bought few mouthpieces and I need some suggestions to suitable ligatures. There is not any near shop to try them. The mouthpieces are: - Saxscape Florida prototype Slim body - Lebayle LRII metal (similar body to the saxscape) - Warburton LA (wider body than both) I...
  7. Soprano, Bass and Misc. mpc
    I purchased a soprano mouthpiece from Lebayle's website in October 2015 and never received it. I tried to reach him by sending him several emails but I never got any answer. I saw in this forum that someone had the same problem I had and I would be very thankful if anyone can help me, because at...

    Hello, I purchased a Mouthpiece from his Website on Fri, Jan 31, 2014. I'm waiting now for 17 months. I sent him several Mails, Facebook PM etc., but he ignored every Message. At this Point I'm really helpless what to do. I just want my money back. Does somebody know what to do or anything...

  10. Altissimo and Multiphonics
    So I've been trying to add altossimo to my playing and have been trying to get G out and have tried every fingering I've heard of and keep overshooting it and getting an altissimo D. How can I prevent this from happening? It happens on both my Lebayle Studio 8 and Meyer 5M so I know that it's me...
  11. Alto mpc
    So I've been looking into a high baffle mouthpiece to get a more projecting and edgy tone and got volume when I'm playing in amplified settings, but I've heard that higher baffle mouthpieces are easier to play, so larger tip openings are suggested. At the moment, I'm playing a Meyer 5M, so my...
  12. Alto mpc
    Hi, just wondering if there are some instances of this happening to anyone else. I ordered a Lebayle piece back in mid July through his website. I didn't get any more information about the order for about a month and a half and that was to inform me that he had been sick and therefore unable to...
  13. Alto mpc
    Hey does anyone know if a Vandoren M/O or Optimum ligature can fit on a Lebayle hard rubber mouthpiece? I am trying to consider this match before I purchase this mouthpiece. Thanks.
  14. Tenor mpc
    Hi all, I have just upgraded my Otto link tone edge (ebonite) - it was a 6-STAR tip opening (95) and I have just purchased a Lebayle metal jazz tenor mpc (7-STAR = 105 tip opening). My problem is I have gone from no squeaking at all to chirping and squeaking like I remember doing when I first...
  15. Alto mpc
    Is it similar to an STM link? I've been looking for a open chamber, low baffle metal piece for alto The reason I am saying metal is because I am comfortable with the way it feels especially with the new emboucher my teacher made me use (I'm glad he did!), hard rubber feels awakward for me now...
  16. Mouthpiece Maintenance, Modification & Refacing
    Just wondering if anyone has bought an LR II (metal) recently and is experiencing any plating wear already. Or, if not wear, any obvious oxidization(?) AKA Green Stuff. By recently, I mean within the last couple of years, when Fred started putting biteplates on his mouthpieces. I have an...

    Hi everyone, INTRO: I play a Cannonbal Big Bell Global series with a Fat Neck. This gives me quite an open tone. But here`s the "problem" I play in a sort of a brass band, and sometimes i`m up against 7 trumpets and 3 trombones. I`m not completely alone but my fellow sax players cant play...
  18. Soprano, Bass and Misc. mpc
    I bought a Lebayle mouthpiece (Jazz Metal no.7 for Soprano) recently from a Netherlands company through the Internet recently. However, the ligature and cap come with the mouthpiece have problem. I contacted the store to fix the problem but they claimed that they cannot help. Therefore I have...
  19. Ligatures
    hey, i use a hard rubber link on my tenor and i just bought a lebayle LR ligature (the one that looks like a napkin ring) and it was advertised that it would fit a rubber link, but it feels too small and won't even fit on the piece with the reed off. i tried someone else's lebayle lig on my...
