  • C2 – Crystal Fit
    This model is designed specifically for Pomarico Crystal mouthpieces including the Backun CG series mouthpieces.
    *all C2 models are engraved “C2” on the back of the lever cage (opposite side of the AK logo).

We are planning on saxophone models in the future so stay tuned!

All of our models are available in either Gold Plating or Rhodium Plating.

Why Rhodium?
Why not silver plating you might ask? The main reason is tarnish. Since most mouthpieces are made from hard rubber, silver plated ligatures can tarnish easily. So we opted instead for Rhodium plating as a better alternative. Rhodium is a member of the Platinum metal family and is one of the most rare precious metals. It is beautiful and durable that gives a clean look and an amazing feel.

All models include reed plates that are left as their raw finish material. This way customers can easily distinguish between the different plates based on the look of the plate (brass vs. solid silver for example).
