Model LM-6 is a
brand new design for the BBb/CC tuba player. I am absolutely convinced this
will set the tuba world on fire and be our biggest seller for years to come. It
is marvelous. The LM-6 has the quintessential tuba sound. It’s dark when you need it to
be dark. When you ascend through the higher dynamics, it responds with ease,
and sounds incredible. You just FEEL stronger when you play this mouthpiece.
The LM-6 provides an exceptionally strong
feeling of security through the rim. It is the perfect marriage between 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 where the sharp brass rims fail to accommodate the player (putting
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 mass on your chops, endurance is also improved. The cup
depth is very close to the LM-7. It is a medium, funnel-style cup.
It is a fantastic mouthpiece, with a warm, projecting sound that is
dark, but incredibly focused.
It has response characteristics and a feeling of
security that I have never experienced with
ANY other mouthpiece. Ever! The LM-6 is my new do-everything mouthpiece. – JOE MURPHY
