In this episode, I had the pleasure of meeting Steve Teeters and Tyler Rogers of Claude Lakey Woodwinds at the NAMM Show 2024 to discuss their amazing saxophone mouthpieces.

For over fifty years, Claude Lakey’s enduring legacy has thrived within the company he established, evolving from its modest inception in a corner of a music shop in 1962 to its esteemed stature today. Today, as a family-owned enterprise, the company continues Lakey’s tradition, offering premium, American-made mouthpieces, compass ligatures, and music accessories of exceptional quality.

Claude Lakey Mouthpieces has a tradition of responding to their customers’ needs to give musicians complete diversity in the genre to suit any gig they might play.
