Product Overview

Delrin trumpet tops have been discontinued and will only be available while supplies last.

Top 10 Mouthpiece! - Similar to Bach 5C - Excellent for orchestral trumpet players who want a slightly scaled down and more efficient version of a Bach 1-1/2C

Highlights:   

  • Best match to the Bach 5C and similar mouthpieces with a .660 ID and medium deep cup
  • Deeper than a Bach 3C or Wedge 66MV, producing a darker sound more suitable for orchestral playing
  • Excellent balance between the registers and the ability to produce a dark orchestral tone or enough projection to lead a section as required
  • Provides a rich sound and smooth transition between notes

Specifications:

  • Inner Diameter: .660 inches measured .04 inches into the cup
  • Outer Diameter: 1.114 inches
  • Cup Depth: MDV (Medium Deep V) cup (similar to a Bach 1 1/2 C or 5C, Warburton MD, regular Schilke, or Yamaha C cup) but with a slightly more V shaped transition into the throat
  • Produces a large, dark orchestral sound, which is a little darker than the MD cup
  • Backbore: Best used on an ML (Medium-Large) 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.
