Product Overview

Characteristics - The 98AL has a cup depth similar to a Bach 6-1/2AL or Bach 7, and a rim diameter of .980 inches similar to a Bach 7 or 7C. The 98AL has a .270 (.686mm) throat.

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.
