    • Outer Diameter: 1.114

    • Backbore: This top is 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.
    • Sounds darker than brass mouthpiece when used with brass or stainless steel backbore.
     
    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.
    • Sounds very similar to brass when used with brass or stainless steel backbore.
