Product Overview

The Wedge 103GS is similar to a 103G with a shallower cup. It is like a Bach 5GS with a Bach 3G diameter. 

The 103GS is a great mouthpiece for players who want a tenor mouthpiece with a large diameter and shallower cup for a more brillaint sound and easier upper register.

103GS has an ID of 1.03 inches, a .270 (.686mm) throat, and is available with a small or large shank.

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.
