Product Overview

The 102GS has the same rim as the 102G, but with a shallower cup. It is like a Bach 5GS but with a larger inner diameter, or a Bach 4G with a 5GS cup depth.
 
The 102GS is a great choice for players who like the Bach 5GS, but need a bit more room. It is also great for players who like the Bach 4G or Wick 4AL, but who want a shallower cup for a more brilliant sound and easier upper register.

Material - These mouthpieces can be made in either Delrin or Acrylic plastic. Here is a comparison of their characteristics:

  • Delrin:
      • Feels softer on the chops because it has more give than metal. This is a great advantage for players with braces.
      • Not as slippery as silver, giving more grip.
      • Added grip makes Delrin mouthpieces feel smaller than their metal counterparts with the same size designation.
      • Not as smooth as metal, so some players may feel slight chop irritation for the first day or two while they adjust.
      • More comfortable to play in cold weather because they feel warm on the chops.
      • Plastic mouthpieces are more responsive than brass, making soft entries more secure.
      • Articulation less crisp with less point at the front of the note compared to brass.
      • Darker sound than brass.
      • Less core in the sound compared to brass.

    Acrylic:
      • Feels softer than brass but less soft and Delrin on the chops.
      • Less slippery than metal but more slippery than Delrin.
      • Grip intermediate between Delrin and silver.
      • Feel slightly smaller than the metal counterparts.
      • Smoother than Delrin, very similar to silver.
      • Comfortable to play in cold weather.
      • Responsive to soft articulation.
      • Articulation is clearer than Delrin, very similar to metal.
      • Sound is slightly darker than brass and brighter than Delrin.
      • More core in the sound than Delrin, but not as much core as metal.
