Specifications

  • Very close to a Bach 3C diameter
  • Inner Diameter: .665 measured .04 inches into the cup
  • Outer Diameter: 1.119
  • Cup Depth: This mouthpiece has an MV (Medium V) cup, which is similar to a Bach 3C. It is also similar to the Bach 7E, Schilke or Yamaha B, GR M, Curry M, and Warburton M cup, but it has a slightly more V shaped transition into the throat, which darkens the sound slightly. It is an excellent all round mouthpiece with a very versatile sound. It is suitable for concert band, marching band, and jazz or big band. The M cup can also be made to blend in a chamber group or orchestral setting, especially when used with a heavyweight backbore in order to darken the sound. It functions well as a Piccolo trumpet mouthpiece with a medium cup is desired.
  • Backbore: This top is best used on an M (Medium) backbore which can be purchased here.

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.
