I’ve never met a Lelandais mouthpiece I didn’t like. And this rare large chamber beauty is no exception. What distinguishes the Lelandais large chamber from almost all other vintage large chamber soprano pieces is that the chamber is only moderately large, not huge like most Buescher or Conn or Martin pieces. In this regard, it is really a lot more modern than those pieces, closer to the Link slant or the Meyer large chamber. This is the second one I’ve come across; all the other Lelandais soprano pieces I’ve had have had much smaller chambers. This one is a beautiful classical, legit piece as is; open up the tip just a little and it will play any kind of music with great tone and texture.
Details soon. Meanwhile, take a look at this French work of art.
