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
- 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
- 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
- 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.
