Product Overview

This mouthpiece is in new condition. It is discounted because this model has been discontinued.

  • Specifications
    • Very close to a Bach 3C diameter
    • Inner Diameter: .665 measured .04 inches into the cup

    • Outer Diameter: 1.119

    • Cup Depth: This mouthpiece has a S (Shallow) cup, which is similar to a Schilke or Yamaha 14A4A, Warburton SV, Reeves S, Bach 3D, or GR S cup. It is an excellent mouthpiece for commercial lead and also for pit and pops. The Wedge rim produces a much better lower register than a comparable mouthpiece of this cup depth, so the low range sounds more like a Bach 3C then it does like a lead mouthpiece. This is also a mouthpiece for Piccolo trumpet if one prefers a shallow cup.
    • Backbore: This top is best used on an S (Small) backbore which can be purchased here
    • ***This mouthpiece has the standard #27 throat, which is the best option for most players.
  • Acrylic
