Product Overview

Specifications: 

Top 10 Mouthpiece! - Similar to Schilke 14A4A, Bach 3D, Monette B4L - Excellent choice for a lead mouthpiece to complement a Bach 1-1/2C, Bach 3C, or similar “legit” mouthpiece

 Highlights:  

  • S cup similar to a Schilke 14A4A cup
  • Excellent projection, slightly less support in upper register than the ES cup
  • Less prone to bottoming out than the ES cup
  • Excellent for lead when a solid mid to low register is also desired
  • Works well for piccolo trumpet when a brighter sound with more projection is desired
  • Surprisingly good low register for an extra shallow lead mouthpiece

More Information:  

  • Inner Diameter: .660 inches measured .04 inches into the cup
  • Outer Diameter: 1.114 inches
  • Cup Depth: S (Shallow) cup (similar to a Schilke or Yamaha 14A4A, Warburton SV, Reeves S, Bach 3D, or GR S cup)
  • Excellent mouthpiece for commercial lead and also for pit and pops
  • The Wedge rim produces a much better lower register than comparable mouthpieces of this cup depth - low range sounds more like a Bach 3C then it does like a lead mouthpiece
  • Also a mouthpiece for Piccolo trumpet if one prefers a shallow cup
  • Backbore: Best used on a S (Small) backbore which can be purchased here

Wedge Generation 2 Line:   

  • Designed to incorporate the advantages of the Wedge rim and oval cup in a mouthpiece that is very comfortable and easy to adapt to from a conventional rim
  • Slightly wider rims than Standard Brand
  • Features our new Double Oval Cup (DOC)
  • Oval shape of the Wedge rim is continued down to the base of the cup where it joins the throat
  • DOC design (exclusive to Wedge Mouthpieces) provides added efficiency of a smaller mouthpiece with the big sound, clear attacks, and flexibility of a larger mouthpiece

Acclimatization:  

  • Acclimatization time varies
  • Most players find full adjustment to the new rim shape is only a few days
  • Most players are able to alternate between a Wedge rim and conventional rim, if desired
  • Vast majority of players will convert all of their mouthpieces to the Wedge design due to its obvious advantages once adapted
  • Discounts offered to players who need to purchase a number of Wedge mouthpieces for various instruments

Features of Delrin:   

  • Feels softer on the chops with more give than metal - ideal for players with braces
  • Less slippery than silver, allowing more grip
  • Added grip makes delrin mouthpieces feel smaller than their metal counterparts with identical size designation
  • More comfortable to play in cold weather 
  • 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 with less core than brass
  • Some players may feel slight chop irritation for the first day or two while they adjust - this is normal and should subside
