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.

I realzied now that I sound like me on most no baffle mouthpiece with low baffle, so I figured, why not be comfortable playing it?

Re: What are metal Lebayle jazz models like?

I've had three metal Lebayles, all were finished poorly. Buy a Klum or Navarro before you spend it on a Lebayle.

The OP posted in the alto section, so I suspect he's referring to alto? In that case, there would be no Navarro alto piece out there yet, although it's probably going to be a huge success when it comes out.
As for Lebayles, I've had a few for alto and soprano. All were OK, but too edgy/harsh for my taste.

I think metal klums are too expensive for me

Really? all lebayle's were too harsh?

Even the LR?

I have tried metal Studio, Jazz and LR chamber. The closest to metal Link is the LR, Jazz less so, and Studio is a screamer. That said they all sound quite brighter and more powerful than a Link STM alto.

Hum, that's kind of disappointing
I want a mouthpiece darker then a link if not the same
I put a lot of air through my horn and thus anything brighter then Meyer types are too bright for me

I tried a drake ny before and it was too bright

I might take you up on that offer Phil!
But my teacher said I should get use to my new embourcher before trying new mouthpieces

So I'll maybe contact you around Christmas time
What ligs do you include with the mouthpiece? Cause I really like my francois one for metal
And don't want to spend another 80 on another...

Sorry, for some reason I missed the "lr" in the thread title. I've never played one of those (only Studio and Jazz models), so I wouldn't know.

Yeah, I changed the title of my thread when I meant the lr

Hum, link with more power
That sounds promising

Its to bad Fred lebayle doesn't accept returns....

I have one
I like the core sound but it feels like I'm fighting it sometimes
Plus the tip opening is too small for me now
It is not exactly the model mouthpiece if you know what I mean
