All Trombone Mouthpieces

This is a list of all our trombone mouthpieces, ordered from large/deep to small/shallow. Some models are available in more than one shank size.
 
Mouthpieces with Medium/European shank and Remington shank are available by request. Note that some bass trombone leadpipes require the optional longer shank for deeper insertion.
 
Profiles are often based on multiple scans of the same size. When there are major variations more than one profile are shown.

114 XD
ID 1.14 inches (28.96 mm)
Throat .320 inches (8.13 mm)

Similar to
 
Bach 1G
Denis Wick 00AL
Hammond 21BLX
Schilke 60
Yamaha 60

Description
 
The 114XD is our largest, deepest bass trombone mouthpiece. It is the best choice for a player using the Bach 1G, Schilke 60, or similar mouthpiece, and who does not have significant problems with range and endurance.
 
Players switching to the Wedge will usually get better range and endurance, but if these are serious issues the slightly shallower Wedge 114D, or slightly smaller diameter Wedge S59 listed below, might be better choices.

Throat .280 inches (7.11 mm)

Similar to
 
Bach 1.25G
Bach 1.5G
Bach 2G
D Wick 2AL
Schilke 58
Yamaha 59

Description
 
The 108G is very similar to the Bach 1.25G and 1.5G, with a nearly identical cup, when you allow for the Wedge oval shape. The Bach 1.25G and 1.5G have very similar cups, with the main difference in the two mouthpieces being the softer bite radius of the 1.25 rim, which makes it feel bigger.
 
The Bach 2G is also a similar feeling mouthpiece. It has a softer bite than the 1.25G or 1.5G, with a slightly smaller cup. It is very similar to the Schilke 58.
 
The 108G is also the best match for a Schilke 58. It is at the smaller end of the bass trombone mouthpiece range and is an excellent choice for an advancing player or someone who needs an efficient mouthpiece providing lots of range and endurance.

ID 1.01 inches (25.62 mm)
Throat .280 inches (7.11 mm)

Similar to
 
Bach 5G
Conn 5G
Remington
Schilke 51
Schilke 51D
Yamaha 51

Description
 
The Bach 5G and Schilke 51 have been the standard workhorses for large bore tenor trombones for many years.
 
Scans of different specimens of the Bach 5G show an ID of between .101 and 1.00 inches, depending on the specimen. Schilke 51 rims are more consistent at 1.01 inches. The Yamaha comes in closer to 1.00 inches.
 
The Wedge 101G is a good replacement for the larger 5G and Schilke 51 mouthpieces. It does have a slighty deeper cup than the others. However, the 101G is not as deep as the Schilke 51D.
 
Most players switching to the 101G will find that their range and endurance impoves despite the slightly deeper cup, and that the low end is also significantly better.

101GS
ID 1.01 inches (25.62 mm)
Throat .280 inches (7.11 mm)

Similar to
 
Bach 5GL
Bach 5GS
D Wick 6BS & 6BL
Remington
 

Description
 
The 101GS is similar to the Bach 5GL, which is a somewhat obscure mouthpiece resembling a Bach 5G, but with a slightly shallower cup, splitting the difference between the 5G and 5GS. It is a bit deeper than the Bach 5GS. Although the Bach 5GS and Schilke 51B are sometimes equated, the 51B is actually more similar to a Bach 6.5AL. The 101GS is also similar to the Remington mouthpiece.
 
This is an excellent choice for large bore tenor when the player wants great projection and ease in the upper register without going as shallow as the Bach AL cup.
 
Another similar mouthpiece is the Bach 5, which is less common than the 5GS and has a more bowl shaped cup.

101AL
ID 1.01 inches (25.62 mm)
Throat .280 inches (7.11 mm)

Similar to
 
Bach 5
Bach 5GS
Bach 6.5AL
Schilke 51B
Yamaha 51B

Description
 
The Wedge 101AL is actually most similar to the Bach 5GS, for two reasons. The Bach 6.5AL inner diameter is listed by Bach as smaller than the Bach 5G, which has an ID similar to the Wedge 101 rim. However due to the flared shape and soft bite of the 6.5AL it has a larger ID than the 5G when measured at .05 inches into the cup, where Wedge sizes are taken.
 
In addition, the Wedge G, GS, and AL cups are slightly deeper than the Bach cups. As you can see from the profiles this means that the Wedge 101GS is actiually deeper than the Bach 6.5AL and just slightly shallower than the Bach 5GS.

The 100G is an excellent choice for someone wanting the big, orchestral sound of the Bach 5G or similar mouthpiece with a slightly smaller and more efficient diameter. The smaller ID will provide better endurance than the larger 5G / Wedge 101 rim without brightening the sound.

ID 1.00 inches (25.4 mm)
Throat .270 (6.86 mm)

Similar to
 
Bach 5GS
Bach 6.5AL
Schilke 51B
Yamaha 48
 

Description
 
The Wedge 100AL is most similar to a Bach 5GS, but with a slightly smaller ID. Compared to the Bach 6.5AL it actually has a slightly smaller ID when measured at a point .05 inches into the cup where the lips generally make contact. This is due to the flared shape of the 6.5AL at the top of the cup. The 100AL is a bit deeper deeper than the Bach 6.5AL, Schilke 51B, and Yamaha 48.
 
The 100AL provides a mouthpiece that fills the gap between the usual symphonic large bore tenor mouthpieces like the Bach 5G and the shallower C cup commercial mouthpieces. It has a brighter sound than the 5G family of mouthpieces and an easier upper register.
 
Most players using the Bach 6.5AL, Schilke 51B, or Yamaha 48 will find that the 100AL provides the best combination of sound, range, and endurance.

100C
ID 1.00 inches (25.4 mm)
Throat .240 inches (6.1 mm) or .250 inches (6.35 mm)

Similar to
 
Bach 6.75C
Bach 11C

Description
 
The 100C falls into a category of sizes that is a bit complicated to sort out due to inconsistencies in Bach rim sizes and overlap in the dimensions of mouthpieces in this range. It is most similar to a Bach 11C, with a slightly larger diameter. It is also close to the Bach 6.75C.
 
Confusion arises because the Bach 11C actually has a larger cup volume than the Bach 7C, and nearly identical to the 6.75C, depending on the specimen scanned. The inner diameter of the 11C matches the 7C at about .05 inches into the cup (where we take our mouthpiece measurements). Below that point it is smaller, and then larger than the 7C a bit deeper into the cup, as shown in the profiles.
 
There is enough overlap in the sizes of the 6.75C, 7C, and 11C that one could easily pass for the other if the mouthpiece was not labelled. The main difference is rim shape.
 
Available with a .240 inch throat and a larger .250 throat for a more open blow. Stong players will get a bigger sound with the .250 throat, provided they have the air support required.
