Trombone Mouthpiece Rims and Cups

Rim Shape
Wedge trombone rims have our patented oval, curved shape. 

Rim Diameters
Wedge trombone mouthpiece rim sizes are named according to the rim diameter.
* Inner diameters (ID) range from 0.95 inches to 1.14 inches
* ID measured at .05 inches into the cup
* Examples - A 96 rim measures .96 inches, a 101 rim measures 1.01 inches 

Trombone Cups
Wedge trombone cups extend the oval shape of the Wedge rim down to the base of the cup.
* We offer a wide variety of cup depths for every playing situation
* Depths range from shallow E to extra deep XD
