Model LM-6 is a
brand new design for the BBb/CC tuba player. The LM-6 has the quintessential tuba sound...a warm, projecting sound that is dark, but incredibly focused. It’s dark when you need it to
be dark. When you ascend into the higher range, it responds with ease,
and sounds incredible. You just FEEL stronger when you play this mouthpiece.
The LM-6 rim response characteristics offer a great feeling of security. It is a perfect fusion of a flat, Helleberg-type rim and a cushioned rim. It's flat where it needs to be flat (to give all the response & flexibility that you need), and very slightly rounded to accommodate the player... relieving undue stress on the chops.
The LM-6 is closely related to the LM-7, but the LM-6 has a
slightly wider, flatter rim than the LM-7, improving response and flexibility. Since there is more surface area on your chops, endurance is also improved. The cup
depth is very close to the LM-7. It is a medium, funnel-style cup.
