Cannonball Adderley, among many others, used what’s commonly referred to as Meyer’s “New York” mouthpiece: made of hard rubber, fat-bodied with rounded inner side walls. Now, in honor of the centennial year of jjBabbitt (Meyer’s parent company), there’s a new NY mouthpiece for altoists, designed to incorporate all the characteristics of the vintage ones.
