Title: Excellent mouthpiece!
I play jazz in small ensemble and big band settings and occasionally play studio dates (in jazz, pop and rocks settings). This is by far the best fluegelhorn mouthpiece I've ever had. The shape of the rim is very comfortable which makes switching from trumpet to fluegelhorn and back super easy. Although it is the smallest fluegelhorn mouthpiece cup design Wedge has, it still gives me that nice, warm fluegelhorn sound I love to hear in all registers. The smaller cup also helps with endurance, making it much easier to play longer solos. Great job once again, Wedge! -Martti V

Title: My second Wedge!
I've used a Wedge for more than a year now for trumpet. I thought I'd give the flugle horn one a try. I'm very happy with it. When I transition from one horn to the other I feel like the mouthpiece is the same. What works for me is that with my rather large lips I feel like I have good contact with the Wedge without adding pressure. -Dexter T

Title: 65FLC delivers as promised
The 65FLC mouthpiece gives me the same feel and response as my 65ES trumpet mouthpiece. I wanted a darker tone on my flugelhorn so I chose the standard cup depth. That comes at the expense of range, but on my flugel range is not that important. I love my Wedge mouthpieces. My next one will be the 65S BRC for my soprano cornet. I cannot wait. -Rudolf J

Title: Love it!
I am a long time customer. I was looking for an MDV and MV cups. Conferred with Dave over several emails, and he said his experience was that you could play a bit smaller on the Wedge than his normal size. I had nothing to lose with his great guarantee, and trade program, so I dropped from a 665 to a 65 in all of my pieces. It took a couple of weeks, but I’m a happy camper! Of course, Daniel made this transition smooth as usual. Great folks to work with! Thanks for your help, Dave! A home run!!!! -Ed M

Title: Very easy to play
Mellow sound, like denis wick medium deep cup sound for me. It's easy to play, like all other perfessional mpc brands. Of course, their rim releases much pressure, if you ever feel that when playing, must try it! -Pietze

Title: Great companion mouthpiece to Chuck Findley 66
I have been playing the Chuck Findley 66 mouthpiece for a couple of years now and really like it. I had not changed my flugel mouthpiece, and it felt weird switching from the Wedge shape to the standard round profile of my Yamaha mouthpiece. Now, with this 66FLS, I can switch back and forth during a gig more comfortably, and it also feels like there is a bit more support for above the staff playing, which is welcome. -Dan T

Title: Best flugel mouthpiece I have ever played
OK, so I am an orchestral musician who plays the flugelhorn relatively little in my day to day work. I tried the 67FLC with the Yamaha back bore and WOW! It works beautifully. Nice, characteristic flugel sound. Easily accessed upper register with out sacrificing the lower range sound. Brought my Yamaha YTR631 in to a new level of control and intonation. I recommend with out hesitation this mouthpiece! -John W

Title: 65FLC
The 65FLC has the same feel, response and range as my 65D Trumpet mouthpiece while delivering a mellow Flugelhorn sound. The sound is not as dark as my Wicks 4FL but the flexibility and comfort are far superior. I am very happy with my wedge mouthpieces. -Claude T

Title: 65FLC Gives Stamina Along with Richness
The 65FLC somehow actually opened up my sound on my Benge flugelhorn while simultaneously casting a deeper, richer sonority, which might seem counterintuitive but nevertheless is the case. It increased not so much my upper range itself but strengthened and eased my ability to occasionally hit higher notes with better slotting and therefore confidence. -Peter S

Title: Wedge 66FLD
The mouthpiece construction and service of the Wedge team is amazing. I ended up going with the medium sized cup as I felt it was more suited to myself and my 1525 kanstul. I would highly recommend Dave, his team and his product to anyone. I also use the 66MD on my Bb. Amazing sound, range and endurance. Just like the ads say! I love Wedge mouthpieces! -Dean B

Nice to have the consistent feel in rim diameter, going from trumpet, cornet, flugelhorn. Plus, the sound I was looking for. Thanks! -Rodney S

Title: Flugelhorn and trumpet
I bought the 65FLC Flugelhorn Top and Shanks for both my Yamaha Flugelhorn and my Bach Trumpet. On my flugelhorn the mouthpiece is great at slotting notes, gives me a tone that rings with clarity, and gives me a trumpet range on the high end. On the trumpet it mellows my tone and allows me to add variety to the styles I play. It is a wonderful mouthpiece! - Edward B

Title: Plastic????
I bought a copy of the flugelhorn mouthpiece in plastic mostly out of curiosity. I bought it also in brass (silver) so I have both, but find I always seem to grab the plastic, as it seems to grab me…..way comfortable. My thanks to Dr Dave for the suggestion. I’m thinking of maybe next trying the plastic for trumpet. My chops continue to improve through careful practice and breathing and have experienced an increase in both range and endurance. -Richard P

Title: Earned 5 Stars
Had a great time using this Flugel top! Love the selection of sizes and measurements (cause I’m a gearhead) and even though I got a top that was too small for me, I could still play it really easily and naturally. And shoutout to the customer service too, I could easily do an exchange for a size that better fit me -Ben A

Title: Flugelhorn Mouthpiece
When I received this mouthpiece I was very impressed with the increase in the sound quality of my Flugel. It took on a rich dark sound that I was looking for. The Plastic top is very comfortable. A little patience may be required to enjoy the full benefits of this design as it is asymmetrical... cheers! -Nathan S

Title: Unusual product!
I am still getting used to these mouthpieces but I can already say they are worth a try!!! The notes seem to slot in much better... I wanted to give up on these after day 1 but now I am starting to see there might be something here!!! -Jan R

Title: Worth a try!
I played lead trumpet for the Army, Air Force and the Air National Guard for over 30 years and thought I was pretty settled in on mouthpiece choice. I now have 3 Wedge mouthpieces. 66S (Chuck Findlay model), 66MS, and now 66 FLC - flugelhorn. These are incredible mouthpieces. 1st thing I noticed was the improved sound, then improved endurance and comfort. Great customer service and return policy. Well worth a try. I’m hooked! -Jeff S

Title: Flugelhorn mouthpiece
Excellent product a close match to my Wedge trumpet mouthpiece. Improved stamina alone is worth the price. Dr. Dave has hit on a genius idea with the Wedge. Couldn’t be happier -Jim M. Moncton NB

Title: Flugelhorn mouthpiece
Dr. Dave’s concept of design is truly remarkable. This is the fourth of his mouthpieces I have purchased. I have found them to be superior to my previous mouthpiece that I had used for over forty years. My range has not diminished. They produce a rich sonorous sound and pitch and note slotting are great. -Richard P

Title: Magic one, you can't miss it
Customer from Taiwan When I bought it three months ago, like most people feeling," try another brand again" hope the new one feels better after sweet period. And yes, wedge mouthpiece isn't disappointed to me. the rim design is totally a revolution design. something changes to me as below: 1 Use the old mouthpiece, when the air is not good flow enough,it sounds not good enough,or we'll make more pressure, overblow trumpet. Wedge rim design won't let you overblow easily , even on your bad time, the rim design can adjust your lip back to your best way. 2 most of time we can't feel it until the sounds become badly . When you have a gig or a show, wedge mouthpiece could let you know it's time to stop,even support you to the end of a gig, and get the minimal miss of notes. TRY ONE! the company policy makes the mouthpieces valuable even several years later! -Patrick W

Title: 64 FLC Top with 19 trumpet shank - you’ll love the sound! I recently purchased the FLC top in delrin and used it with the recommended 19 throat trumpet shank for a short trumpet solo in concert band. I debated using a flugelhorn, but went with this combination in the trumpet. It produced an extremely dark, full orchestral sound that carried very well in the large auditorium . . . tone was better than I’ve ever sounded. -Christopher B.

Title: Two piece flugelhorn mouthpiece works great!
Never having touched a flugelhorn before and certainly never having blown one, I asked Dave for a recommendation because the Shielke and Bach mouthpieces that came with new (used) flugelhorn just weren't working. Dave recommend the standard sized shank and the 66FLC top because the 66MDV trumpet mouthpiece works so well for me. I've never had a 2 piece mouthpiece before so I was a little leary of it, but now that I've got one, I love it! I see why Dave recommended the 2 piece; one can more easily and more cheaply switch between tops. Anyway, the 66FLC delivers the same big, deep and rich sound on the flugelhorn as the 66MDV does on the trumpet. I love the 66 size rim because it is wide and seems to float on my lips and not dig in causing fatigue. I use the mouthpiece horizontally because my face is so narrow. The 66FlC is deep so it takes a different approach than the trumpet, so this is going to take some getting used to. But the new Wedge mouthpiece does exactly what Dave represented. Thanks again Dave! -John T

Title: Two different shanks
These flugelhorn mouthpiece shanks (1 for British cornet and 1 for trumpet) have been very useful and made it possible to use the same top with different types of horns. -Rainer W.
