An exact reproduction of Benny Carter's original mouthpiece.
The Benny Carter Legends Series mouthpiece is an exact reproduction of his original mouthpiece and has been created using a white resin material. For over six decades, Benny Carter has occupied a unique place in American music. As Duke Ellington once wrote: "The problem of expressing the contributions that Benny Carter has made to popular music is so tremendous it completely fazes me, so extraordinary a musician is he." As a soloist, Carter, along with Johnny Hodges, was the model for swing era alto saxophonists. He is nearly unique in his ability to double on trumpet, which he plays in an equally distinctive style.
Benny Carter Legends Series Mouthpieces are handmade in the USA by Drake and combine state of the art technology with hand finishing tradition to create a precision reproduction of each musicians original mouthpiece. Drake mouthpieces are revered for their accurate, immediate response and their incredible intonation stability and projection qualities.
Available tip openings for the Benny Carter Legends Series include: 6 (.080"), 7 (.084") and Carters original 8 (.089").
