This Optimum series is hailed as a great success, winning approval from players in all genres of music. The AL3 is primarily chosen by grade players and more classical users wanting a good all round mouthpiece with a closer facing that suits harder reeds.
Made in France.
Straight through round tone chamber and a Medium Long facing.
Especially suited to classical and graded repertoire.
The AL3 has quite a narrow tip opening and as such has a focused controlled sound that suits a harder reed set-up.
14 day trial available.
