Product Overview

The Wedge 65S British cornet mouthpiece is designed specifically for use on the soprano cornet. The cup is shallower than the Wedge Medium Deep or Wick B cornet cup. It produces an excellent balance of upper register support with a sweet tone and the projection needed for soprano cornet without being overly bright.


Specifications

  • Inner Diameter: .650 measured .04 inches into the cup.
  • Outer Diameter: 1.094
  • Throat: 19
  • Cup Depth: Medium Shallow (Similar to Wedge RT or Wick S cornet mouthpiece cup)
  • Backbore: This top is best used on Wedge British (Short) Cornet backbore, which can be purchased separately here.


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.
