Product Overview

The Wedge 66S 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.

    • 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.
