DESCRIPTION: 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.

Best I've used so far December 18, 2012
Reviewer: Christopher Smith from Granite City, IL United States  
The LM-6 has a nice weight to it, heavier than the Pt-88, but lighter than my Mike Finn.

On the face, the metal isn't a hard feeling. It feels "natural", however you want to take that. Higher notes seem to come out more clearly and with more ease than any other mouthpiece I've used (From G3 to F4 range). The lower range (Bb1 to C1) is where the LOUD name really comes into play. If played controlled and not blasting, that range sounds like the pipes of an organ.

Overall I am very pleased with this mouthpiece and would recommend it to a few of my friends.

Fantastic, versatile mouthpiece June 21, 2012
Reviewer: Richard Perry from Hattiesburg, MS United States  
I've been playing an LM-6 since last November.  I don't use anything else in my CC tuba these days.  The sound is big but focused, and the response is AMAZING.  Accuracy issues are near zero.  The upper register response is fantastic for a medium-large mouthpiece and I've actually used it for some F tuba applications.  This is a great versatile mouthpiece.  Try it for yourself and see.
