Francois Louis Spectruoso Alto Mouthpiece, A255 Sphere Chamber – Used

$175.00

 

Made of a new composite material, this mouthpiece resonates beautifully. The chamber resembles a Berg Larsen-style bullet chamber, but this mouthpiece plays more easily than most Bergs and with a touch more focus. 

A great mouthpiece in the A255 facing with the Sphere Chamber!

Description

This one is the A255 facing in the Sphere Chamber, non-signature model, with tip, rails and table all excellent.  There is a small tooth indentation on the bite area, but a mouthpiece cushion will make that un-noticeable.
The Sphere Chamber is Francois’ smallest chamber and brightest in sound quality.
This is a replica of the original Francois Louis® mouthpiece design. It offers an unbelievable dynamic range with a full and rich sound color from the softest pianissimo to the most powerful fortissimo. This is a mouthpiece that can take all the air you can possibly give it and turn it into a full, colorful sound rich in harmonics. This is a mouthpiecepiece for those who love to use sound the way painters use color.
  • The Francois Louis XL Ligature fits this mouthpiece.
  • This piece features an oval, more traditional type of chamber. It offers quite the same advantages in dynamics with more separation in the spectrum between highs and lows and offer a more airy sound with a lot of bounce. This is the perfect mouthpiece for jazz and hard bop styles of playing. It is reminiscent of the sound of the 50’s, playing with the efficiency of the best modern mouthpieces.
