Francois Louis Spectruoso Alto Mouthpiece, Regular Model or Signature Model

A new composite material that resonates beautifully. The chamber is similar in looks to a Berg Larsen, but this mouthpiece plays more easily than a Berg and really speaks with great focus. A great mouthpiece!

The Sphere Chamber is Francois' smallest chamber and brightest in sound quality.  The Medium Large Chamber is warmer with less edge and brilliance.

The "Signature Model", which costs slightly more, has been hand faced by Francois Louis!

The "XL" Model Alto Ultimate or Pure Brass Ligature from Francois Louis fits this mouthpiece.

  • The Sphere Chamber                 coupe SP

    Is the "replica" of the original "FL" mouthpieces. It offers an unbelievable dynamic range with a full and rich sound color from the pianissimo to the most powerful fortissimo. It really conveys the air you blow into sound, with an enormous efficiency and a total spectrum of harmonics. Highs, Mids and Lows: dark and bright altogether with a rich medium color. For those who love to use sound colors the way painters do.

  • The Medium Large Chamber           coupe ML

    This model is a more traditional type of chamber. It offers quite the same advantages of dynamics with more separation in the spectrum between highs ad lows. A more airy sound with a lot of bounce. The perfect mouthpiece for "Hard Bop" style. Reminiscent of the sound of the 50's, playing with the efficiency of the best "modern" mouthpieces.
