Today I’d like to spotlight Claude Lakey, one of our our wonderful Teen Jazz Sponsors!
We have a number of sponsors without whom, we would be unable to do what we do here at Teen Jazz. As a big thanks to each of these fantastic companies and artists, I’d like to begin introducing a few of them to you.
For those of you unfamiliar with the company, Claude Lakey is a mouthpiece and ligature company that has over 50 years of experience in the industry. In the 1955, saxophonist Claude Lakey began working on the design for what would become the “Original Claude Lakey.” In the 1960s, he began to make his own molds to create products that were up to his standards and in the 1970s his designs began to grow in popularity. According to the website, “Claude Lakey Mouthpieces is now one of the most recognized names in the music industry. The company exports to over 20 countries around the world and works with 4 US distributors to ensure that our mouthpieces are available to all musicians, no matter where they are.”
Some of the popular Claude Lakey products include the “Original” mouthpiece, a versatile hard rubber mouthpiece and the “Compass” ligature with its innovative design.
