Product Overview

The Giuffredi C is the original signature Wedge mouthpiece of Italian trumpet virtuoso Andrea Giuffredi. The Giuffredi C has an ID of .662 inches and incorporates the features of our Gen 2 rim and cup design with a medium bite on the rim and an accentuated oval rim and cup. The cup depth is medium deep, between the depth of a Bach 1-1/2C and 3C, with a slightly V shaped contour. This is a very versatile mouthpiece for a wide range of applications including jazz, solo, chamber, and orchestral playing.

Wedge plastic mouthpieces are machined from black Delrin or clear acrylic. They have all the advantages of a other Wedge mouthpiece, the main difference being that they play with a darker sound. This top can be used with any Wedge, Warburton, or similar backbore with a matching throat size. The metal backbore makes the mouthpiece sound slightly brighter than the all plastic model.

This top has a #27 throat, which is the best option for most players

Acrylic:

  • Feels softer than brass but less soft and Delrin on the chops.

  • More core in the sound than Delrin, but not as much core as metal.
  • Sounds very similar to brass when used with brass or stainless steel backbore.
