Made from exclusively sourced German Ebonite and precision milled using state-of-the-art CNC machining processes, our Apollo Ebonite Tenor provides a dark, fat tone that will cut through amplified instruments and horn sections.

You'll reach new highs and lows while maintaining the crisp, open Lakey sound. 

Product Details

  • Great projection
  • Free blowing and easy to play
  • Easily accessible highs and lows
  • Handcrafted for quality
  • Made from exclusively sourced ebonite

The Apollo Tenor Ebonite mouthpiece gives you the warmest tone of our tenor pieces, while still providing the free blowing brightness that Lakey mouthpieces are known for. Using exclusively sourced ebonite, these quality hand-crafted pieces provide you with greater projection and more easily accessible highs and lows. The Apollo Tenor Ebonite is often an instant favorite. 

The Apollo Ebonite is great for use in a jazz or dixieland setting, but isn’t to be overlooked for other genres as well. We find that the Apollo Ebonite is really great for rock, funk, or house music as well. The great projection allows you to be heard among large ensembles, and the bright, crisp tone lends to fantastic solo work. Whether your goal is to blend in, or stand out, you’ll find the great control the Apollo Ebonite gives you will help you achieve it and anything in-between. Rovner ligature option also available…see below.


All Claude Lakey mouthpieces are now also available bundled with a genuine, perfectly-sized Rovner Dark ligature.  This combination offers great performance at a very reasonable price. (See size selection dropdown.)


A solid and remarkable performer since 1974!

Includes a Rovner™ cap

Made in the USA!
