Francois Louis Spectruoso Soprano Mouthpiece, Signature Model

$222.00

 

This model is hand faced and signed by Francois Louis.  Made from a new composite material, this mouthpiece resonates beautifully. The chamber resembles a Berg Larsen-style bullet chamber, but this mouthpiece plays with more ease than most any Berg and a touch more focus. These are excellent mouthpieces!
