"The mouthpiece is an essential part of our instrument." If you want optimal results, the mouthpiece must be adapted to each repertoire. After working for a long time with Toni Romera, the results we have obtained are the best. The L3 model is based on an old 16th century sacaboute mouthpiece but with a modern rim. It is the best option to switch from old to modern instrument without problems.
