The Original Alto is where it all started, and it has remained the central piece of our Originals collection for more than half a century. Claude handcrafted the Original Alto design himself when he was unsatisfied with any molds available to him. His innovations pioneered a better Jazz mouthpiece: the same one we are still making today.
Claude created the Original Alto as a jazz piece, but its bright sound and great projection make it the perfect choice for a variety of genres. We find it’s particularly stunning in rock groups, funk bands, and house music. You’ll find the Original Alto gives you the ability to stand out above the crowd, or blend into an ensemble. You will reach new highs and lows, having freedom in your upper and lower register. The versatility of this piece is outstanding, and you will soon find it becomes a favorite to play in several settings.
