Hi all, this is my first visit to this forum. I discovered this forum via a google search.
The reason for me being here is that I would like to get some recommendations for a mouthpiece for my daughter. She is a 13 year-old third year clarinet player (2nd chair all region as a 7th grader, I might add) that recently starting playing tenor sax so she could be in her middle school jazz band.
She has also started sax lessons (with an area college student) and she asked for his mouthpiece recommendation in last night's lesson. Here is what he recommended:
Lakey or Lakie
All rubber or ebonite
He didn't provide any mouthpiece models, just the three brand names. I'll ask him myself for a clarification at next week's lesson, but until then I would like to get a few ideas myself. I checked out Otto Link and Ponzol at Music123 (they did not have Lakey/Lakie) and there were several models of each, some as much as $400 or more. I really don't want to spend more than $100 if I don't have to, since this is not her main instrument. I just spent $2100 for a new Buffet clarinet a couple of months ago.
Any recommendations? Remember she plays Tenor Sax strictly in the school jazz band.
