Product Overview

Top 10 Mouthpiece! - Similar to Bach 3C, Monette B4S, Schilke 14B - Great for Pit and Pops

Highlights:   

  • Similar in diameter to a Bach 3C (just very slightly smaller).
  • Medium cup with a modified V shape at bottom of cup leading into throat, similar to a Bach 3C
  • Good orchestral mouthpiece for someone who wants a little more projection, or who has a naturally dark sound
  • Great choice for pit and pops, concert band, and jazz soloing where a bright lead sound is not needed

Specifications:  

  • Inner Diameter: .660 inches measured .04 inches into the cup
  • Outer Diameter: 1.114 inches
  • Cup Depth: MV (Medium V) cup (similar to a Bach 3C)
  • Also similar to the Bach 7E, Schilke or Yamaha B, GR M, Curry M, and Warburton M cup, but has a slightly more V shaped transition into the throat, which darkens the sound slightly
  • Excellent all round mouthpiece with very versatile sound suitable for concert band, marching band, and jazz or big band
  • M cup can also be made to blend in a chamber group or orchestral setting, especially when used with a heavyweight backbore to darken the sound
  • Also a mouthpiece for Piccolo trumpet if medium cup is desired
  • Backbore: Best used on an M (Medium) 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.
