Title: Great Product!
Everything was great. Chatting with Dave about my experience, goals, and reasons for getting a mouthpiece was really helpful. I never felt pressured to buy anything, plus the 90 day trial period is extremely appealing. He suggested a couple options, I placed an order, and it arrived very quickly. Great communication throughout the process. This is my second wedge mouthpiece and helps me get exactly the sound/flexibility I desire. Very happy customer! -Ryan R

Title: Great mouthpiece!
First, it was fantastic having a Zoom session with Dr. Dave to discuss my needs. I was worried that I would find the 1.03" inner diameter too wide, but it feels very similar to a standard Bach 4 size, which is what I'm used to. The oval design of the rim is very comfortable, not at all hard to get used to - in fact, it seems to force me to use my embouchure more efficiently! During my first session with this mouthpiece I hit the best high F I've ever played, and it has a beautiful warm, dark sound all the way down to the pedal register. I'm impressed! -Dale S

Title: Nice mouthpiece.
Great I showed an immediate increase in stamina. The upper range had an ease about it. I have playing on a 5 G for years, I will not be going back. Thank you. -Mark R

Title: Worth every penny
l'm just an amateur player, and the Wedge really helped me come back after a long hiatus. It helps train the embouchure to bring the sides of the mouth in towards the center, thus focusing the airstream more effectively without pressure on the top or bottom lip. The 100G specifically is perfect for my small face and mouth. I was thrilled to finally find a smaller diameter like a Bach 6.5 but with a G-cup instead of an AL. I'm getting much crisper attacks in my mid and lower range while not sacrificing a full, dark tone. Best of both worlds! -Ed L

Title: I enjoy playing again
Easy to hear the improvement from the first note. Clearer articulation, handled well. Better slotting and flexibility. I find not 'fighting' or compromising with the equipment, it allows more energy for nuance and creativity. First 2 hour practice unearthed great and open sound, ease, and most of all, excellent dynamics. Endurance is slightly better. It sounds beautiful. It is worth the price, and the best I've played. I'm glad I have this while I'm still a good player and enjoy practicing again. -David W

Title: Fantastic Mouthpiece!
This mouthpiece is great! I switched over to this from a Hammond 12ML and noticed an immediate improvement in my flexibility in both my low and high registers. Admittedly, my tone was slightly brighter on the Wedge when I first began using it, but I believe this to have just been a quirk of switching mouthpieces. It has since returned to normal. Overall, I greatly enjoy this mouthpiece (so much so that I will be getting a second, smaller one for my jazz horn!). I would recommend that anyone with the means to do so try the mouthpiece out for themselves and see if they like it! -Trevor S

Title: Can't tell it's plastic
I play trombone as a secondary instrument fairly often, and needed an upgrade from the mouthpiece I had been using. Because it's not my primary, I opted for the acrylic mouthpiece, and it feels and sounds great. Very comfortable! I recently finished playing a community theatre show, and had a cast member (that also works at a music store) ask me about my mouthpiece because it wasn't metal - he said from the sound he can't tell it's plastic at all. -Dan P

Almost instant improvement. I can now play the upper octave much easier and much longer than with my old mouthpiece. my embouchure does not feel as stressed after my practice and my rehearsals. -Phil W

Title: A Tuba doubler
Love this piece. I’m a tuba doubler fortunate enough to to get a stellar price on a large Edwards bass with Thayers. As awesome as that horn is, it’s not exactly a traditional choice for jazz, which is what the majority of my bass playing is these days. This MP feels very comfortable and familiar to me, with it’s wider rim, but it also does a phenomenal job of brightening and lightening a heavy orchestral bass bone. I get a lot of compliments on the sound with this one. For me, it’s just what the dr. Prescribed, and I find it offers me great flexibility, stability, endurance…all the reasons I love my other Wedge MP’s too. -Ben S

Title: Super comfortable and easy playing
Of course, after 40 years with „regular“ mouthpieces I was skeptical about the wedge shape, but had to try it at least with my new bass trombone. It feels very natural and thus comfortable to play with. Needs to get use to take care about where up is, but after two days you not even longer have to look for the marks any longer...you feel it. Only thing I regret is that I ordered it in Acrylic instead of metal. But hey, room for improvement. -Tom W

Title: Loving this!
I am absolutely in love with this mouthpiece. I've never played had a mouthpiece effect my sound and playing as much as my wedge. My flexibility is way better, my range is improving more quickly and I can play for way longer. Again, I love this mouthpiece! -Brandon P

Title: The perfect mouthpiece
I’ve had my 114XD for three years now. It is the best bass trombone mouthpiece I have ever owned. With this mouthpiece, I have good flexibility without getting tired. It gives me an incredible amount of power in the lower and pedal register, whilst still affording me a very comfortable top register. The size took a while to get used to, but now I have I can’t see me playing any other mouthpiece. -Andrew B

Title: 2G
I asked Dr. Dave what the Wedge equivalent of a 2G was as the 108G was just a whisker too big for me as I am mainly a tenor player. He said he didn't have anything but would make one and add it too his line. Very happy with it. Lots of ping for big band playing but still able to get a good full low register sound. -Marty S

Title: Worked as advertised.
First, the idea you have an interview to discuss the mouthpiece you need and even if you need it was incredible. I had not picked up my trombone in 21 years and while I was doing ok, the range was a struggle. Immediately improved my high notes. I don't have to play top notes but I need more and got it. Like the 90 day policy but liked it even more when I was told if you don't see an improvement in 5 to 8 days let's try another one. It only took a couple days to know it was working. -James W

Title: Playing better with Wedge Mouthpieces
With Wedge Mouthpieces I play more comfortable and my endurance increases. Playing brass instruments well is difficult and any help is always important, as a consequence the sound improves. But for me the most important thing is that Wedge Mouthpieces teaches me to always have a correct embouchure position. Many thanks for your work. -Josep P

Title: Show them the curve.
I have 5 Wedge mouthpieces. A 6.5 AL, 5G small shank that I use on my small bore horns. The 101G and a 4G large shank the tI use on my large bore horn. A 3G that I use on my brass trombone. I play the 5G, 101G and 3G almost everyday and enjoy them very much. I do not feel like I am straining to create a sound with them. My accuracy and playing on pitch has improved. I believe I have developed a small vibrator using these mouthpieces. I notice that when I switch back to a traditional design mouthpiece my endurance suffers and I lose control as I continue to play. I recommend all of my Wedge mouthpieces. - Ernie K.

Title: My new go-to mouthpiece! 
After reading many reviews I expected to use my mouthpiece (101G Gen 2 Large Shank Trombone) for a few weeks before making a decision; however, it actually felt great after one day. I have had it for over a month now and performed with it on multiple gigs and I must say it is the best mouthpiece I have played on. In addition to its comfort, I have a great sound wit this mouthpiece and, although I wouldn’t say my range has increased, my flexibility within my range has. My endurance is also improved, perhaps due to the comfort level. Definitely a new fan of Wedge mouthpieces! -Michael F

Title: 101G Gen 2 Trombone Mouthpiece – Large Shank "Gold Plated"
This is the 3rd 101G I have ordered, previous I have purchased a delrin and a silver plated. I really like the 101G used on a Conn 88H trbn. If I compare the silver and the gold plated mps only I myself can hear a difference. Reasons for switching is a) skin peel winter period b) I feel the rim better when the mp is gold plated. The latter is (I think) that the gold plating feels warmer, gold has better heat reflection though lower heat conductivity. Both silver and gold plating is high quality. I just sent my 102E euphonium silver plated mp back for gold plating though it is in excellent condition, looks like new. The Wedge mps are high quality mps, highly recommended! -Mans F

Title: The Wedge Experience
I was really overwhelmed with my new wedge mouthpiece. I adjusted really fast to it (1 day). I love the fact that the acrylic mouthpiece is very light, It was easy for me to reach the sharp notes, it is easy on the lips giving me better endurance. I play a Bach TB400B with F attachment and It goes perfect with my new Wedge(100AL 2 Gen). I would certainly encourage all trombone and trumpet players to give the wedge a try...You"ll love the comfort while playing your instrument. -Nicolas B

Title: Gen 2 101G Trombone Mouthpiece
Overall, I highly recommend everyone tries out the 101G and/or any other Wedge mouthpiece that fits them best. Before receiving this mouthpiece, I played on a Bach Artisan 5GS (25.5 mm cup diameter, same as Bach 5G/5GS). The 5GS tired me out too much, so I wanted to get a mouthpiece that didn’t do so without sacrificing the smaller cup diameter. The 101G accomplished this in a very effective manner. The only concern I had is that I didn’t notice any increase in range, but this issue isn’t enough to warrant a 4 star rating because my high range facilitation was easier. Overall, here’s what I observed when testing the 101G when compared to the Artisan 5GS: - more comfort - better high range execution, but not increase in range - warmer/deeper tone with a bigger sound core, but not projecting as much (as expected with the deeper cup and oval shape) - initially struggled adapting to the rim, but got used to it after 3ish days - the oval shaped rim felt “smaller” to me than the 5GS did, and playing everything below low Bb felt unorthodox for me despite a fuller, more powerful sound on each of those notes. - this might just be me, but the rim itself felt like it locked my embouchure in place more than the 5GS. I personally didn’t like this but it was a minuscule problem. Please keep in mind that I do have an abnormal embouchure, so one with a more “normal” embouchure might not experience all of the things I did. Once again, I would highly advise everyone to try a Wedge! -Grant H

Title: Baritone/Trombone/Euphonium has increased high range with better intonation
I've been playing on baritone/euphonium/trombone for over thirty years but have alway had a hard time having good intonation above the high Bb (C in treble clef). 95% of my music never goes that high but every now and then I would like to hit those crazy f horn notes. This mouthpiece enables well to even the double Bb (C in treble) with sufficient warm up of course. -Andrew V H

Title: Thinking outside the rim
I enjoy playing on the 3G just as much as the 4G mouthpiece. I use the 4G on a Holton 160 tenor trombone and use the 3G on my Kanstul Bass trombone. I find it very easy to switch from either horn with these two mouthpieces. No stress or strain and the tone quality remains the same. Thank you, Ernie K

I had purchased two of your Wedge mouthpieces several years ago but was not in a position to give them a good trial exam. Now, I am in a much better position to say that your mouthpieces are the ones for me. There is comfort, response and most of all a tone quality that I enjoy very much. Thank you for you help.

Title: Wedge 101G
I am enjoying my Wedge mouthpiece very much, but my experience seems a little different than some other reviewers'. Because I moved up to a slightly larger piece when I switched to the Wedge, I have not noticed an increase in range or a huge increase in stamina. However, what I like so much about this mouthpiece is that I was able to increase my cup diameter without LOSING range or endurance. I get the broader sound and flexibility benefits of a larger mouthpiece with the feel and control of a smaller one. Also, if you are reading this review right now, you are probably wondering the same thing I was when I first read reviews: how different does the Wedge feel and how long does it take to adjust? For me, the Wedge feels almost no different than the Hammond mouthpiece I was using before - it just feels like a regular, round mouthpiece. So my experience has been that it took almost no time to adjust. -Neil D

Title: Promises Delivered
Originally purchased a 101G but after a month it began to feel too small. Replaced with a 103G and am very pleased. I find articulation is improved, tone is clear and no major adjustments were required to my embouchure. Downsides ... inability to test before purchase, no preferred Canadian pricing. Excellent response to concerns. -Malcolm W

Title: Terrific Result
The concept of the Wedge intrigued me and although I was a little skeptical as I spoke with Doctor Dave I soon learned he was very knowledgeable and my apprehension soon dissipated. I waited for my new mouthpiece to arrive wondering if I made a good decision. It arrived and over the next few days I quickly concluded I should have acquired it years ago. My tone is clear and strong, range has improved and endurance has increased. This is a wonder. With the trial guarantee, you can’t go wrong. -Brian McG

Title: 100 AL Gen 2 Trombone Mouthpiece - Large Shank
I was amazed how comfortable the mouthpiece felt after just a couple of days of playing with it. I’ve noticed that Even though my chops may be getting tired towards the end of a rehearsal, there is no discomfort and it doesn’t take as long to recover and continue playing without that fatigued feeling. My upper range seems more secure and has a bit more body to the overall sound. It’s still a work in progress for me, but I am very pleased and satisfied with my new mouthpiece. Thanks to Dr Dave for his help and advice on the purchase of the Wedge Mouthpiece. -Peter V.

Title: Mouthpiece helps feel like a natural fit of embouchuer placment to mouthpiece
Immediately I could adjust to a more comfortable fit between my facial muscles and skeletal contact. Sides of embouchuer could easily come into to hug the mouthpiece and close any air gaps. That’s why I can practice longer is because my embouchuer is stretched vertically to more comfortable fit -Paul K.

Title: A good product, a bit expensive, no miracles
I bought 6.5AL Jazz Trombone Mouthpiece - Large Shank - Delrin and practiced with that. My first impression is that this mouthpiece feels somehow smaller that a standard 6.5L, its shape probably helps in endurance, but requires some adaptation. All in all a good product, but it needs practice and might not be the perfect solution for everyone. I went back to my standard mouthpiece and I'd be glad to sell back this Wedge. -Michele B.

Title: 101G Trombone Mouthpiece - happy with the change
I play a Conn 88 in a summer-only community band. Though I try to keep my embouchure up fall through spring, I never quite have enough range nor nearly enough lip endurance. From written reviews I figured it was worth a try... the guarantee adds confidence to that decision. No hype. The Wedge is noticeably better for stamina and I think I'm hearing a brighter sound. One catch: It was like giving a 5K runner instant 10K endurance. I quite literally blistered my upper lip by going on too long, too soon. That cost me 10 days mandatory rest. I have to build up a bit more gradually. I started over on Tuesday practice for Thursday's concert. It really was nice to play the whole concert without my lip shutting down in the last 1/3rd. Other than inability to hold the last 3 Fs in the last song, I made it through without compromise. -Ted D.

I recently bought a 6 1/2 jazz trombone large shank and it is just what I needed. I have several Wedge mouthpieces for both small and large bore instruments and this mouthpiece possesses the typical Wedge traits of excellent production and clean articulation throughout the range. The sound is fairly bright as you’d expect but I find I can also use it in settings where a more mellow tone is required. Very good.­ -John S. (Australia)

Title: An Amazing Mouthpiece
Dr. Dave told me I had a 90-day free trial but that I wouldn't need 90-days: man, was he right! FROM THE VERY FIRST NOTE, I knew this mouthpiece was going to be something special. Clear tone, easier to reach upper register compared to my old stand-by Bach 6 1/2 AL, and--as advertised--longer endurance. I don't know how he does it but this thing performs just as promised. Heartily endorsed! -Jon R

Title: Great mouthpiece
I was having trouble with endurance and talked to the doctor. He recommended this mouthpiece for playing the French Horn part in a brass quartet. He said this was a commone problem with older people (I’m old). He suggested a slightly smaller rim with a .240 Throat. This is my first experience with the newest generation of Wedged Mouthpieces. I love it. It’s really easy to play with very little sacrifice in tone. -Silas Y

Title: Great match
I recently purchased a Bach 36 trombone and as the owner of two other Wedges (one for a large bore tenor, one for a bass trombone) I was looking for a good mouthpiece to use with my new smaller bore horn. I consulted with Dr Dave by phone and after talking with me about my playing habits he eventually recommended the 100 AL Gen 2 small shank. I’ve had it for about a month now and couldn’t be happier. Great match! -Arthur C

Title: Increased range and endurance!
Was looking for a mouthpiece that had the same inside diameter as my 6 1/2 AL, but with a medium sized cup and .250 throat. To be used on my King 2B silver sonic. Something that would give me the comfort needed for my embouchure, and still facilitate lead playing. After a couple week acclamation period, this mouthpiece seems to have accomplished those objectives for me. Definite increase in endurance playing in upper register. -Josh D

The small shank Delrin trombone 4.5G mouthpiece is easily the best compromise for most trombone players.

This is the best mouthpiece I've ever played on. Response is solid throughout the range. Attack is clear, notes slot in nicely, and I have a better sense of intonation through the harmonic series. My upper range has always been a problem, and this mouthpiece has extended range considerably. I'm learning more each time I play on it. - John P.

Title: So glad
I had purchased an 11C Wedge and, while it helped with the upper register and it helped center tone and intonation, it felt limiting in some way. In the meantime, just prior to Covid,I tried a larger mouthpiece in another brand. That size felt better stronger in some ways. Covid kept me out of orchestra for an extended time. When we came back, I needed something that would be easy on the embouchure and help again with tone and intonation. I went back to my 11C, which helped. But I soon encountered the old limitations. I decided to try a larger size Wedge (the 103G) and that has been a great choice. It helps with tone and intonation and allows more power and confidence for me in all registers. Certainly the 11C will be used for really high register jazz applications, but overall, and especially in a symphony application, I think the 103G is a really good choice for me. -Greg C

Title: 100AL Gen 2 Trombone Mouthpiece - Small Shank
Was playing a Wedge 98C on a .500 bore horn with good results. Decided I wanted a "fatter" sound and better low-register response. Switched to the 100AL and a .508 bore horn. Better overall sound, and better response on the low notes. Taking some work to get my upper register back to where it was on the 98C, but that is progressing nicely. -Jerry A

I've now found a mouthpiece that matches up with the leadpipes and bores of the King 2B horns I play on, Silvertone and Jiggs Whigham models. However, the greatest benefit I've received from this Wedge mouthpiece is the relief of the pain and pressure I've experienced for a period of about 30 years from an injury I sustained to my chops. For me, the design of this mouthpiece has allowed my chops to heal by conforming to the contour of my facial muscles. Thank you, Dr. Dave and Daniel for your help and patience. -Bruce S

Title: The Difference
It took me some time to order the mouthpiece. In 2017 I bought me a customized trombone and from this time I was looking for a MP to bring the best out of it. I heared about the Wedge but never could try it. So I spent a lot in different MP´s, some are good, some ain´t. With the last one I reached this point again where the progress stopped and make the decision to order a Wedge - I´m more than pleased. The first gig was so great, no tired lips, safety in the high range and such a good sound in the low range. I play Rath R1, but have some other trombones too... -Johann K

Title: Excellent craftsmanship
I have been playing on a Wedge mouthpiece for only 4 months on my tenor trombone(101G) and have been so pleased, that I also bought a mouthpiece for my alto trombone/bass trumpet. I am very satisfied and in general I think that I get more core and at the same time more stamina. The sound is great and the craftsmanship is excellent. So thank You Wedge! -Robert H

Title: Perfect Lead Mouthpiece 
I called Dave about a month ago to ask about getting a better lead mouthpiece for some auditions I have coming up. His description of how each part of the mouthpiece affects the feel and capabilities of said mouthpiece were clear, concise and immensely enlightening. He couldn't have paired me with a better mouthpiece for my needs. The larger throat diameter paired with the smaller cup makes it easier to switch between my solo/section bone setup (5G-SS3). Super thrilled with the mouthpiece. -Ethan C

Title: 100AL Gen 2 Trombone Mouthpiece 
I have already got a large shank version of this wedge mouthpiece, which I like very much and would recommend it. I can play for longer with it compared to the Bach 6 1/2 AL I used before. I bought the small shank version to use with my recently acquired Alto Trombone. I am still at early stages with it but I find it comfortable and much the same as the large shank version I use on my Tenor. Thanks for the clever design! -Roderick M

Title: Wedge mouthpiece for jazz trombone
Hi, I have ordered and received an 100AL Gen 2 trombone mouthpiece which I use on my jazz trombone. I works well as promised. stable tone, well high and low register, good tongue control. The edge at the inner rim felt sharp in the beginning. I haven't had the chance to play it in a band and so cannot evaluate sound, section blending and projection. For lead I will maybe try a 100C model later. -Mario C

Title: Comfortable Mouthpiece 
This mouthpiece is a lot more comfortable on my lips when I’m playing for long periods of time. I notice I have more endurance and my high notes seem a bit easier to achieve. It takes a few days to get used to the feeling of a wedge but it’s definitely worth the benefits once that time has passed. I have a snaggle tooth and this mouthpiece avoids pushing my lips into my tooth so that has been the biggest improvement for me. -Miranda B

Title: Trombone Wedge 96 C .240 mouthpiece
Excellent experience with 1) Advice on selection 2) Delivery time )3) Results My issue was tone and upper range limitation. Both are improved with this mouthpiece. Previously I was using Bach AL 6.5 or Marcincowitz 11 C. The tone is better as is the quality of upper range to B above staff. This is using Bach 16 LT horn. I recommend a trial of a wedge if you need assistance. Dave is a competent consultant. Jack B, TN

Title: Perfect commercial lead piece
I started using wedge mouthpieces 7 or 8 years ago after a bout with dystonia. I've been thrilled with my 5G for years now, but I was in need of a lead piece that was somewhere in-between a 6.5AL and a 7C. The 6.75C feels great and gives me the zip I need without sacrificing the body of sound that I get with the 6.5AL. -Ethan C

Title: Delrin vs Standard 5GS Trombone Mouthpiece
I wanted to buy a spare mouthpiece to use with the horn that I keep in my office. When I saw that Dr. Dave had a discounted Delrin 5GS, I thought I'd give it a try since it would give me the same dimensions as my standard Wedge 5GS at a great price. I especially like the physical warmth of the rim. I can start playing immediately. The sound is somewhat different, but that's what I had expected given the significant difference in the mass of the two mouthpieces. Overall, I'm satisfied with the Delrin version and I would recommend it as a backup for anyone who wants a second Wedge at a great price. -Joel S

Title: Swithing to Wedge on trombone
This mp was a great surprise. This mp brings new life to my Bach 34 with the original lead pipe I have kept. The GS cup is not a limitation at all in the lower register an I can enjoy fully for the support it gives me playing in the high register. A wish from my side, now when heating is switched on an we get low humidity inhouse, is the get an option to order the mouthpieces with gold plated rim. -Frisk M.

Since I purchased the Wedge 5GS trombone mouthpiece, I have been very pleased with my performance. I find my control, my center of pitch, articulation accuracy and response to be better.

Title: 100AL 
The change from VB 6.5AL to the wedge 100AL was very easy. One of the biggest things was how quick my upper lip rebounded after a long practice. Also, my range is very good upper and lower. I also noticed an improvement in tone quality. Everything that I was told about the wedge mouth piece was spot on. I am very happy with my investment, and will recommend wedge mouthpieces to my friends. Thank you. -Sam S.

This is the LS for my Conn 88h and once I order my Shires small bore I will use the 100AL SS. I hope I have finally found the mouthpiece that is perfect for me. -Steve M.

Title: Warning: One might not be enough 
Endurance and high range on my trombones were areas I wanted to improve. At 70 years old, muscle building is slow and limited. After reading about the Wedge, I bought one for my main axe, a Conn 88 HCL - medium/large bore with a large shank mouthpiece.. I noticed an immediate improvement in endurance, and suspected my Gs were coming a little easier. After several weeks, I was positive my endurance and range were both improving. So I ordered one for my small bore Conn 6H secondary bone and another for the scrappy Yamaha 4-valve euphonium I am beginning to fool around with. I figured I needed the help there too. Now, a couple months later, As, perhaps even B-flats are where my Gs used to be in accessability ... and I'm moving up bit by bit from there. Endurance is definitely improved. Perhaps I am doing something else differently, but I doubt it. I am giving credit to the Wedge mouthpieces, and am very grateful for their expert help in selecting the models that fit my three different situations. -Ted D.

Title: Trb 100AL Gen 2 Acrylic
I tested the acrylic 100AL as a substitute for Denis Wick 6BS. In principle no adjustment time needed and also (at least in my mind) I tend to agree with the commercial statements such as "less swelling", "improved stamina" etc. I find the higher register easier to reach without being "blocked" as in a smaller standard mouthpiece. (A harder case for use on the road would have given bonus points!) -Jörgen C

This has greatly increased my endurance while playing lead parts for up to 2 hours. It has also made the upper registers a bit more accessible.

Title: My new Wedge 6-1/2 AL Baritone Mouthpiece
So far I'm really satisfied with my new mouthpiece. It gives a nice rounded tone and easier to punch the notes when needed. The higher and lower range is definitely cleaner and in tune. I tried my old 6-1/2 AL and doesn't even feel right against my mouth now. I'm 79 and still have a problem hitting the high notes after playing for an extended time, but better with this mouthpiece than the old one. -James P.

Title: 100C Gen 2 Trombone Mouthpiece
I originally purchased an LT 100 rim for my 100C Doug Elliott mouthpiece back in the fall of 2018. I had been playing a Doug Elliott LT 100 rim since 1990. I kept going back and forth with both rims until I began to realize that the Wedge rim was much better and I didn't have any lip swelling the next day after a night gig. I ordered the 100C Gen 2 Trombone Mouthpiece with a .250 back bore 8 weeks ago. I've been on it for nearly 3 weeks. This mouthpiece is by far the best piece I have ever played. The sound is fat throughout all the registers from pedal E's all the way up to Double High Bb's. I only wish that I had made the switch sooner. Dave, you're a genius and I'm extremely grateful for your recommendation to this piece. -Best regards, Joe P.

Title: 98c Gen 2
I’ve been searching for a comfortable small-bore trombone mouthpiece for the past year. After getting my first Wedge mouthpiece for my large bore (4.5g) and loving it, I decided to try one for small bore. I contacted Dr. Dave and he helped me pick what turned out to be the perfect mouthpiece for me. I am beyond satisfied. One thing that particularly impressed me was its versatility. I can quite easily manipulate the sound to play anything from lead, to commercial, and even certain orchestral parts. I will certainly be purchasing more from Wedge in the future. -Joseph M.

Title: Bass Trombone 108 Gen 2
Overall it’s a keeper, but not quite 100%, more like 90%. Nicer sound than my Wedge 1.5G, nicer size than my Wedge S59 (too big). Got a concert in 2 weeks so am not going to mess with another mouthpiece. Good range from f below pedal b-flat up to c above high b-flat (4th space treble clef) What I don’t “like” so much is the rim contour. The rim of the 1.5G “feels” better. I probably will try a 110 2nd gen, which was also recommended and see how that compares. As always, workmanship is top class. -Leonard C

Title: Most Comfortable Mouthpiece
This is the most comfortable mouthpiece I have ever used. I was playing on a 1.5G sized standard mouthpiece. Even after going up to this size, my articulation and range both improved. Range improved on both ends. I can now play just as high on my bass and I can on my tenor. Flexibility is also greatly improved. I had an issue going from low to midrange that i have never been able to work out until now. I play a King Duo Gravis and this mouthpiece works with it perfectly. The other folks in my Big Band have noticed my volume has also increased with no effort on my part. I will likely be buying a 5G version for my tenor if I ever need to play it again. -Andrew A

Title: Amazing mouthpiece, don't want to change back anymore.
I'm very happy with this amazing mouthpiece. The curved shape will take a little time to get used to, but right away you can feel it urges you to play high with little lip pressure against the rim (giving more open high notes), while the low register still plays as it should on this nice vintage Bass Trombone. It tempts me to start practicing more after this silent 2020. I'm confident this Wedge will make it easier for me to play Bass and Tenor on the same large bore instrument with this "110G Gen 2 Bass Trombone Mouthpiece". Due to the requested special Remington shank for my "new" 1961 Conn 72H, I had to wait quite a bit. The 1st one was delivered with a normal Remington shank length, only to find out that Remington shanks also existed in longer version. Without complaints Dr. Dave figured out new specs from my additionally send measurements and sent a complete new piece to the Netherlands (this time I upgraded to gold plated since I already was confident fan of the curved Wedge Rim). P.s. I never realized how much sound difference a properly sized shank would make. This old beauty seems to have been played mostly with a standard shank mouthpiece, so with a wobbly fit due to wrong cone angle. Sound was nice enough, but now much broader (more overtones). Maybe most important is that smoothly starting soft tones and intonation are right away notably easier. What I figured to be a weakened embouchure problem, turned out to be simply caused by wrong shank fit. Very happy with this mouthpiece and the silky feel of its gold plating. Thanks Wedge team !

Title: Bass Trombone
I found a used Wedge 11C on eBay. It was cheap, so I bought it. I found it very comfortable with a good sound. I’m a doubler. I play three horns every day: bass trombone, large bore tenor and small bore tenor. One very surpising thing about the Wege 11c is that I was a monster on pedals. I could play down to a pedal E. So I called up Dr. Dave and decided on a 114D in Delrin for my bass trombone. I also bought a tone adjuster. With the 114D I can get down to pedal E, but it’s a little bit of a stretch. With the Shilke 50, it’s not stretch but the Shilke tone is a little bright for my taste. So, I’m happy with the 114D. I’m planning on buying a Wedge for my large bore tenor. To be continued. PS: three members of my brass quintet have bought Wedges. -Silas Y

Title: 108G Gen2 Bass trombone mouthpiece
My personal experience stems from brain surgery in 2001 that left one side of my face looking like a Bell's Palsy episode, and I was unable to even get a sound out of my horn. The previous 25 years I had played using a Bach 1 1/2 G, but after years of slogging away in the back room and getting some muscle tone in my embouchure, I could once again make some sense out of my sound, but it was still pretty fuzzy. The unique cup-to-rim radius in the horizontal axis of the Harrison 108 G definitely helped me with my attacks, tone production and flexibility. A KEEPER ! -James A

Title: The New Range
On several levels the Wedge is delivering renewed pleasure in practicing and playing the Bass Trombone. Opportunities to "get lower" with ease, broaden the quality of the sound and deliver a stronger "bottom-end" to our Jazz Band Ensemble are happening whilst giving a renewal as a T-Bone player since the early seventies.....with a couple of decades of missed practicing under my belt. Unique in the T Bone section the Bass T just resonates so firmly whilst blending easily as the mouthpiece provides a lot of flexibility to "shape" the music on demand..... Highly recommend it for all levels , especially those of us with lots of tunes in our head and less air in our lungs....it breathes very easy. Thank you Wedgers!! -Michael P

Title: Wedge 114 XD bass trombone mouthpiece
I have spent the last three years searching for the ideal bass trombone mouthpiece. I have bought eight of them and found, out of the 8 ,two very good ones. However, the wedge 114 XD is by far the best of the bunch. It is excellent for endurance, comfort, slotting into the note with good articulation and is great for both the high and low register which is required for the bass trombone and this is very unusual. I highly recommend this mouthpiece and encourage any bass trombone musician to try it. -Glenn B

Title: Tone Modifier
I started using a Wedge 11c (from eBay) without a tone modifier. The 11c introduced me to the Wedge concept. It worked so well on my small bore horn that I bought Delrin Wedges for my bass trombone and Conn 88hcl. I liked the sound of the 11c without the Tone Modifier but was afraid it might be a blending problem with the trombone section in the jazz band. When I got the tone modifier a few weeks ago, I began using it all the time. Non trombone players can’t seem to hear any difference, but I hear a pretty radical difference. The tone is more compact. It might also be that the mouthpiece slots better. I recently bought a Delrin 100al for my Conn. I asked the Horn player in my brass quintet about the sound with and without the Tone Modifier. He felt the sound with the Tone Modifier was much better than the sound without. He’s a good player and I trust his judgement. The bottom line is that I’m using a tone modifier on all three Wedge mouthpieces -Silas Y

Title: Tone modifier for 114D mouthpiece 
I was happy with the silver-plated 114D Wedge bass trombone mouthpiece I had purchased previously, but was curious to see whether the tone modifier might provide even further improvement. Because of Wedge's risk-free trial policy, I purchased the tone modifier. To my pleasant surprise, the difference was really quite noticeable, and very positive. My experience with mouthpieces in general is that a heavier shank facilitates the type of sound I want, and the tone modifier provides exactly that effect. It is extremely easy to apply and remove, using the small key that Wedge provides with it. I would definitely recommend giving the tone modifier a try. -Marty F
