Has anybody tried the Drake Bebop Classic Alto mouthpiece? I believe it is a new model and there is not much information out there.

I have not personally tried them but I did contact Aaron Drake and asked about them and was told the Bebop Classic did not come in a large chamber model, which I prefer. The people I know that play Drake's mps. really like them. But I've been informed on here by the mouthpiece police that I lack in manufacturing experience therefore my opinion is invalid. Here's a link to Drake's site.

Thanks for the link. I missed that video when searching for info. I like the sound of it a lot.

Drake did the "Charlie Parker" for RS Berkeley... and the "Benny Carter".
So, not Meyer-inspired mouthpieces, but a Brilhart clones.

I think Aaron took that design and he rebranded it as "Bebop Classic".
It's cool story because no one makes mouthpieces (of such quality) inspired by a Brilhart Tonalin/Ebolin.

Thanks for the reply. It was an old post of mine that you revived.

After i made the initial post, i found a Drake Legend Series "Bird" and subsequently bought a Drake BeBop Classic. They are both excellent mouthpieces. They are slightly different in design. The chamber is a little larger and the floor is a bit more raised on the Bebop Classic.

My preference is for the Drake "Bird". It's my favorite alto mouthpiece.
