The Legends L-BL has a semi-flat, very soft rim, with some undercut for chop room and bite. The cup is medium to medium shallow. The entrance to the throat is rounded to allow good air flow for a nice big sound. This piece has the Legends enhanced throat (#27), enhanced throat cylinder length, and Legends S backbore. These elements improve range, slotting, and endurance for the player. It is suitable for any style of playing, but the L-BL is especially good for that smoky jazz sound.
