- One size smaller than the Bach 3C
- Similar in depth to Bach 3C cup
- Medium cup with a modified V shape at bottom of cup leading into throat, providing a slightly darker sound than the 65M

- Excellent all round mouthpiece with a very versatile sound
- Suitable for concert band, marching band, and jazz or big band
- Can blend in a chamber group or orchestral setting, especially when used with a heavyweight backbore to darken the sound
- Functions well as a piccolo trumpet mouthpiece
- Backbore: Best used on an M (Medium) backbore which can be purchased here.
- 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.
- Sounds darker than brass mouthpiece when used with brass or stainless steel backbore.
