Title: Excellent All-Around Mouthpiece Top
Date: April 2022
As described, the MDV is a very versatile cup shape. I especially like the delrin tops for comfort and added darkness/mellowness in the tone. I am a full convert to the Wedge design and won't be going back! -Tony C

Title: Custom Mouthpiece Top
Date: April 2022
Really awesome from beginning to end. Had a one-on-one consult with Dr. Dave and we were able to dial in a new custom design for me based on my needs. Received a prototype in the mail in about a week and I'm really loving it so far! The workmanship is solid and this product is everything it claims to be. Customer service has been top-notch and Dr. Dave in particular really cares about helping to make your brass playing better, easier and more fun and not trying to make a sale. 100000% would recommend! -Steve D

Title: Great fit!
Date: March 2022
After trying the Chuck Findley 66MV and finding it a bit smaller than I liked, I swapped for the 665MV top and it is working well for me. It gives a good balance for a variety of playing for me. I like acrylic for the top--doesn't slip on my face, and it's easy to pick up cold. -James D

Title: A mouthpiece shape that makes sense
Date: March 2022
The Wedge team were very helpful with selection. Shipping to Australia took longer than usual due to pandemics, natural disasters etc, but I was assured that the money back trial period would only begin when I received the MP. Not that it mattered, I'm keeping it! It is WAY more comfortable than a regular MP. I must have different shaped teeth than most because it really works for me rotated 90deg. I've seen another reviewer like this. I find it supports my corners making additional range easier. Less fatigue too. I have a number of regular MPs of various brands and they all feel like the pressure is concentrated unevenly on my EMB. Not so with the wedge. I bought the multi-piece system, so next purchase is a cornet backbore so I can use the same MP on cornet. -Mike S

Title: Very good mouthpiece!

I have played the Wedge 66MD and 66MS for a while and now I got the 66D top recently and it works fine when I need a deeper cup. It’s also fine to use on the cornet. The wedge mouthpieces was really a game changer for me. -Fredrick L

66MS Trumpet Top
5 star review
Title: Absolutely the best mouthpieces
Date: October 2021
I have been trying the 66MS top with 10º angle for some time now and it works very good for me! Also 66M top and the flugel/cornet-top 66FLC with the 10º angle makes a huge different for my playing. Better endurance and less kicks. The 66S seems to be a bit to shallow for me, maybe it would work if I only played it and didn’t switch tops so much but the 66MS works all the time. Of course it’s very personal what fits me but I have no reason to go back to an ”old” standard mouthpiece. -Fredrik L

Title: Very satisfied
Date: October 2021
Playing the trumpet 30 years by now. Professionally (Royal Swedish Cavalry Band) for over 11 years, now I'm teaching young brass musicians full time. This top is as close to the "perfect mouthpiece" I have come. Received it summer 2018 and has used it as my main mpc ever since. Having had alot of embouchure issues during my study years this top has provided comfort and stability. It is not a magic solution, but a very good piece of my puzzle in advancing as a trumpeter. 27 throat and paired with a Warburton 10 backbore. -Martin C

Title: Truly miraculous
Date: October 2021
Let me preface this by saying that I have been playing trumpet for close to 70 years and bought completely into the belief that there is no quick fix,no magic pill, and no shortcuts to the continuing improvement of range,flexibility,sound pallette and embouchure development, but only constant daily practice and guidance by a qualified teacher.This has allowed me a musical career and opportunities to work with some of the jazz greats.But recently, I had hit a wall in my development that I could not seem to overcome no matter how much I practiced nor who I studied with.To tell the truth I blamed it on age. On a whim I decided to try a wedge mouthpiece and after a discussion with Dave decided on the 66RT. I felt immediately comfortable with this mouthpiece with little to no adjustment time and went about my daily practice routine.After several weeks of playing I decided to try the 65RT and found that the inner diameter of the 65 better fit my needs. Do yourselves a favor. Try these mouthpieces.They freed up the corners of my embouchure to work properly, reduced my tendency for too much arm pressure , opened my sound pallette , and helped me to improve my range and flexibility noticeably. I have been told that only a small percentage of those who try the wedge respond this dramatically and I am overjoyed to be one of them! -David G

Title: B5B Top - 25 - Silver
Date: August 2021
Great backup to the 66D mouthpiece. Especially when needing the zing of metal overtone. Normally I use a 66D delrin mouthpiece. Which sounds great and gives a great tone unimpeded over the staff to a D. The Bach 5B variation has a sharper inner edge lip feel then the 66D wedge. -Glen M

Title: A rotary mouthpiece that works!
Date: August 2021
Back to work in the symphony again and our workload in the trumpet section becomes very rotary valve intense. Think Mozart, Beethoven, J Strauss, Brahms et al... I have always used a Breslmair G-2, original specs/one piece. Works well with my olde school Gänter rotaries. Recently upgraded to a modern G-2 with the "L" back bore, everything was working great, nobody gets hurt on a G-2. Stated in a whisper, "except, of this annoying double buzz that happens every time I play a 3rd space C...." I was referred to a 665RT, all my other m'pieces are 67s. Wow! All of the fun sound and response qualities I like on my Breslmair, except there is no unwelcome double buzz on mid-C. Love it, my horns love it. I use it with the ML backbore, I might experiment with a MLL or L back bore. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED if rotary is your scene. -John W

Title: 66RT ROTARY TOP TRUMPET MOUTHPIECE
Date: June 2021
I can not say enough positive things about this mouthpiece. I was using a mouthpiece that was designed for use with a rotary trumpet; however, I was not satisfied with the sound or the comfort of the mouthpiece. I had previously purchased a Wedge mouthpiece system to replace a damaged mouthpiece and am extremely happy with it, so I decided to add the rotary top. The rotary top addition is fantastic. I now have the sound, flexibility, intonation and comfort that I wanted. This mouthpiece facilitates the slotting and pitch of the notes. -Richard P

Title: Very interesting Delrin mouthpieces
Date: May 2021
Hello, I usually play trumpet with a 67MDV brass mouthpiece. Thinking of playing in winter and outside, I bought a 67MDV Delrin top. It really is a very good option to play in cold weather. But I have discovered other good qualities of this Delrin material that Wedge Mouthpieces also manufactures: the vibration of the lips is easier, with which I have more resistance and improves my attack in the treble range. Another good important quality is that with this material my warm-up time has been significantly reduced. Each mouthpiece produces a different sound and the delrin mouthpiece 67MDV sounds different than the brass moutpiece 67MDV. Which is better? It is a subjective question, what is clear is that now with the two tops I have two alternatives in terms of sound. In my opinion the Delrin mouthpiece is a highly recommended alternative. Greetings from Barcelona -Josep P

Title: 65 MDV and 65 FLD with 40/1000 lateral dip custom rim!
Date: July 2021
My bottom teeth are crossed and this creates a very sharp edge. The pressure of the mouthpiece was always cutting my bottom lip. Dr. Dave came with a great solution to my problem with a small recess at the rim. Basically the recess is supposed to slopes smoothly away at the critical point. Like it slopes away at the sides, reducing the contact and pressure. Since I got my custom rim it's extremely enjoyable to play the trumpet! Thank you very much! -Sava

Title: 62s working great for me!
Date: May 2021
I have experienced a shift in mt teeth that resulted in my top front tooth overlapping the tooth to the right of it. The same shift has happened on the bottom teeth in the same area. This shift resulted in some pain and soreness when playing. I decided to give the Wedge atry and see if it would remedy this situation and it has! I found the transition to be very easy and, in addition to solving the soreness issue, it has give me better flexibility and slightly easier access to the extreme upper register (for me that's above high D). Dr. Dave has a great company and is seemingly always available for questions and advice. Working with Harrison Mouthpieces has been an excellent experience! - Greg V.

Title: Wedged for Life!
The 65MV is my third Top.. I started on the 68MV ( I had this idea that bigger mps were better) First of all for those reading this who don't know already - once you have played a Wedge you won't go back - why would you? Secondly - what is great about Dr Dave is he will give you straight answers and he's not afraid to nail his colours to the mast. The focus at Wedge is not to sell you something - rather to ensure you feel part of a win win partnership. re the 65MV I prefer it to the 665MV - the fit feels better and certainly not too small. 4 months ago I started with BE (Balanced Embouchure) and with its focus on the lips the BE philosophy does appear to favour a smaller mp set. Maybe a couple of years form now I will go to a &¤ size but I will be sure to ask Dr Dave for his opinion first! PS Great service by the way.. MP was posted the day I bought it and it took 4 weeks door to Finnish door. -Steve L

Title: 61LV silver top
Always a positive experience trying out a Wedge mouthpiece. The 61LV gets me one step closer to finding the right mouthpiece for my piccolo. I like the 61 rim but prefer the ES cup. I will try something else. Dave makes it easy to try equipment until you are satisfied. You can literally exchange for the rest of your life with incredibly good terms. -Debra M

Title: Easy to play, super clear sound
I ordered the MV top with a M back bore and found that the ML worked really well on my C and B flat trumpets. I'd say the sound was effortlessly "popping". Big intervals were reduced, agility increased - especially lip slurring and trills. I applied the MV top with the M back bore to my D and E flat trumpets with outstanding success. I don't have to compress my airstream so hard on the smaller horns. Slower air with this set up made for more sound. A great choice for a wide variety of sounds, contemporary and historic. -John W

Title: As good as the 67MD, only less work!
Once again, a couple of awkward days settling in to this; after that it was great. I ordered an M back bore along with this top and eventually moved to the ML back bore. Big difference for my set up. The ML back bore allowed me to explore all the nice colors that the MDV invites. Brilliant and "creamy" at the same time. I had to learn to relax a bit more on this top. It will light up fast and you don't have to use such an assertive tongue position. I would say that this top would be my ideal principal trumpet set up, or a great tool for solo repertoire. Excellent all around mouthpiece top. -John W

Title: Chuck Finley 66MV
Date: January 2021
I was the principal trumpet player for a British military band for 22 years. I survived that 22 years due to my sound, style and technique but always suffered with very poor stamina and my range suffered due to my poor endurance. I’ve spent painstaking years trying to resolve my embouchure issues, which I’m confident is due to the curvature of my teeth and my underbite, as a result when using a regular mouthpiece the rim cuts into my lip at 2 o’clock and 10 o’clock, cutting off the blood supply causing my issues. This mouthpiece as resolved all my issues, I never tire and my range is so much better, before I couldn’t guarantee a top C,I can now guarantee a double G. Thanks so much Dr Dave this mouthpiece as changed my life and I never enjoyed playing the trumpet more. -Stephen L.

Title: The Wedge Delivers
Date: January 2021
Excellent mouthpiece top! It's extremely comfortable to play on and has done wonders for my endurance and range (been playing this mouthpiece daily for over a year now). I feel I can get a much richer sound on this mouthpiece than with traditional mouthpieces as well. I bought this specific top as a replacement for the Bach 3C I have used most of my playing career and as my first Wedge mouthpiece as it is the most similar to the Bach 3C. I highly recommend giving this top a try if you're new to playing on Wedge mouthpieces and have a lot of familiarity with playing on the Bach 3C, since it will give you a more direct comparison between playing on the Wedge vs a traditional trumpet mouthpiece. - Joshua M.

Title: Wow! Nice product
Date: January 2021
After an initial awkward phase of a couple of days, I started really relax in to this design. Soon I was selecting tone colors with impunity. I can hardly wait to get this mouthpiece in to my work in the San Diego Symphony and Opera. Brilliant yet full sound. I will be exploring other tops and back bores as soon as I can swing it financially. I highly recommend the Wedge 67MD with a ML backbore! Works as well on my Yamaha C as it does on my Bach B flat. I am discovering a new range of loud and soft dynamic ranges, coupled with accuracy and endurance. - John W.

Title: Chuck Findley 66MV Trumpet Top - Plastic
Date: November 2020
So far I really like it. My horn sits in a cold room and I don’t have to warm the mouthpiece up every time I play. Plays just like the silver version of the same top I have have  but feel a bit “softer” on the lips. Sound is slightly more mellow but very similar.

Title: Right mouthpiece for me

The Wedge mouthpieces works very well for me. The 67D gives me little more room than the 67MDV. I have the 5 degree angle and that is very good for me.

Nice feel right away. Easier time with slurring, low notes speak easier and with more tone. More consistency throughout.

Title: Benefit surprise
Date: September 2020
Because of Covid I have yet to try my new mouthpiece in my amateur big bands where I play lead trumpet. However I noticed a couple things practicing. At first I seemed to feel muscle fatigue at my left and right corners. (More work needed to keep the seal tight?) But also my upper range (G, A above high C, even double C) can be noticeably louder. (More amplitude of motion available for lip vibration??) My double C has always been a thin squeak not suitable for actual use. Not sure it is all the way there but the help with G and A should be beneficial. -Randy S

Title: Seriously Impressed.
Date: August 2020
This was my first Wedge mouthpiece and it definitely won't be my last. I'm always skeptical of outlandish claims on the internet but various trumpet and mouthpiece makers but this one delivered on all fronts. The adjustment period was less than 24 hours. I don't even notice the curved rim because it feels so natural on the face. I can still play normal rims but when I do, it is significantly less comfortable. -Andrew L

Title: Great mouthpiece
Date: September 2020
Wasn't at all displeased with my existing mouthpice (Schilke 15B4), but really due to boredom with no gigs during the covid lockdown thought I would play around and try a wedge. I really only went for the 14A4a because it was somewhere close to what I used and it was discounted - and the result. Really surprised and pleased. It initially felt a little on the small side but I persevered and it grew on me to the extent that now gigs are coming up again I am using this mouthpiece to play them. I'm not convinced that it has added to my range - I don't think any mouthpiece change can do that to a significant extent - but it feels more comfortable the more I play it, and I think it sounds great. No problems changing back to my old mouthpieces, but why should I? Just need to place an order for a spare one. -Peter L

Title: Feels better and sounds better!
I ordered the MDV and S tops to try and quickly realized that I will be fully switching over to Wedge mouthpieces. They have improved both high and low registers, tone, and endurance along with feeling more comfortable on the lips and engaging the corners more naturally. I wish I made the switch years ago! -Alan K, Associate Professor Memorial University of Newfoundland

Title: Comfortable from Day 1
Date: August 2020
My overall experience has been very positive. I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the Wedge 63S felt the first time I tried it. I was also surprised that it looks more like a traditional mouthpiece than I thought it would. My first noticeable improvement is in the lower register. The notes sound fuller and speak easier. Going into the upper register is easier also. .Articulation is crisp. The 63S feels a little bigger than my current mouthpiece of comparable size. I would describe the S cup as a "roomy" shallow. In using it on my Bb piccolo trumpet I am pleased with the fuller sound that I get. It does not feel or sound stuffy especially with the lowest notes. However, I just ordered the 62ES to try with the piccolo which would be a closer diameter to what I play now. I feel certain that I will keep at least one of these Wedge mouthpieces and possibly both, using one for Bb trumpet and other for piccolo. Customer service has been great and the 90-day trial period is what convinced me to place on order. -Debra M

I am SO glad I invested in a wedge mouthpiece. I'm a professional trumpet player and middle school band teacher.

Plus, the endurance and tone! Love my wedge!!! -Chris T

Title: reflections after 1 month trial
Date: July 2020
My overall experience with the wedge 66MV has been positive. Having played traditional mouthpieces for over 40 years, going to the Wedge was a challenge at first. I did notice improved range, flexibility and intonation almost immediately, however it took several weeks before I could get a sense of focus - the feeling that I could lock in the center of a note. It also took a few weeks to for the sound to develop. It was rather airy at first, with air escaping the corners. However, that got better daily and although the 66MV is a bit smaller than what I was playing on, the sound is darker, smoother and I like it. I would like to try some different sizes before my final decision. -Karl M

Title: More resonance in the sound’s core
Date: July 2020
I had put down my trumpet for 25 years or so, but have picked it back up in retirement. My trumpet teacher has said that he hears a better resonance in the sound core, that it ‘rings’. He’s noticed that there was an upgrade in my tone quality and I seemed more natural and my playing seemed easier. As for myself, I was hoping for a magical boost in my endurance and range. I am increasing in both, but I don’t know if that is more because of the mouthpiece or the practice I am doing and the instruction I’m receiving. Regardless, I plan on continuing with the wedge and will probably try additional sizes. -Edward B

Title: 66M Delrin Trumpet Top
Date: July 2020
This is my 2nd Wedge mouthpiece. Really like the results with the 66mv but I also have occasion to need a brighter sound. The 66m fills that bill. I’m glad I found this system. The rim contour keeps my embouchure honest. By that I mean the corners are tighter, and the pressure in the center is reduced allowing better aperture response / control. May not be for everyone but I am really pleased with the results. -Fred B

Title: Training wheels for an old guy
Date: June 2020
Dave described the Wedge as "training wheels". I have never played an instrument but have always wanted to try the trumpet. I was having great difficulty getting higher than the G. Immediately I was able to reach C and have made steady progress ever since. This is making the challenge of learning to read music and develop my embrasure achievable. I am hooked on practicing and improving. btw, I'm 73 years old. -Ed C
 
64MD Trumpet Top 
5 star review
Title: The Wedge and this 84 year old player
Date: June 2020
I have been using the Wedge mouthpieces exclusively well into 2 years now. Primarily I use a 65MD but for long gigs with difficult material I often switch to a 64MD if my lips are getting tired. I am 84 years old, a comeback player since 2016 and struggled with a variety of mouthpiece brands and sizes but endurance and range remained a problem. Then a friend recommended the Wedge and everything changed. First of all, it was the most comfortable mp I have ever played. There was an immediate change in my endurance ( from a tough 60 minutes to a much easier 90 minutes ). Everything just started to work better. I have played some of my old mps now and then but they just don't measure up to the Wedge. And Dr. Dave is a great guy to work with. Highly recommended. -George B

Title: Wedge Partnership - for Years To Come
Date: June 2020
I was clear on the mouthpiece I wanted and Dave was just as clear that in his humble opinion it was the wrong choice for what I wanted to achieve on the trumpet. Of course I backed down and the 665MV recommended by Dave has been perfect. There's no question the Wedge is innovative but when the people behind it show this kind of integrity it made choosing The Wedge an easy decision. I'm not a great player (started late aged 50) but do I love to play and even in the hardest times when nothing seemed to work the one thing that always felt on my side was the mp (and my long suffering wife!) Now I'm starting to get it together...and as I develop I know I'll be back to Dave for more advice.. what would he recommend for me now! -Steve L

I just started playing trumpet again after 40+ years of inactivity. Thought this would be the perfect time to try a Wedge mouthpiece. I'm glad I did. After a few weeks of use, I really notice the comfort level is much better than my Bach 3C. I can feel how the oval shape promotes a relaxed embouchure. Also, happy with the increase in range with the oval and shallower 3D mouthpiece. I can see trying another Wedge model in the near future. - Al K.

It took me 3 weeks to get used to the Wedge mouthpiece. I am sure that in part this was due to picking up my trumpet again after 50 years of not playing. I learned that very precise positioning of the mouthpiece was crucial for me. Now, I love it. My range and stamina are improving daily. I highly recommend the Wedge and would never go back to my old mouthpiece. -Jens R

Title: 68MDV Trumpet Top and Standard Backbore
Date: May 2020
I've been using my new mouthpiece for just over three weeks now, and I'm very, very pleased. I was playing on a Bach 1.25C. Straight away I like the comfort of the Wedge, and felt I had better endurance and sound. Although I was happy playing on it pretty much straight off, I think it's taken me 2-3 weeks for it to feel natural on the chops, but I feel it's really settling in now;I think the Wedge design is helping me to use the corners much more effectively, and the upper register is starting to feel much more secure. A slight caveat is that, with coronavirus lockdown, I'm only playing it at home, so I won't really know how it sounds in a big space and with other people until that changes, whenever that might be! Overall though, I'm delighted and I think it's highly likely I will be ordering some additional tops and backbores in due course. Many thanks! -David J.K.

Title: Wedge B5CG A5 - great mouthpiece!
Date: April 2020
This is Wedge's rough equivalent to a Bach 5C. But the unique shape of Wedge's rim makes it work far better for me than a conventional mouthpiece. Adding to the comfort on my chops is the 5 degree angle (instead of bending the mouthpiece), and the "Gabriel" shape of the rim, which for me fits better than the standard Wedge rim. With a 25 throat that has just enough resistance for me, not too much. Plus, in all my years of dealing with Dr. Dave & Wedge, he has been unfailingly helpful and great about answering my questions and working with me to try out ideas. -John P A

Title: 65S Trumpet Top With 25 Throat
Date: April 2020
I really like the "S" cups for my small horns (piccolo trumpet and F/G trumpet). I bought this in a 25 throat (already have a 27 as my go-to on piccolo) primarily for use on the F/G and occasional use on a Eb/D for higher range solos. The problem I had using a 27 throat mouthpiece on the F/G was the sound was too nasally. The 25 throat opens up the sound, with just a touch of lost range, which I hope to solve by playing around with backbores. -Christina G

I had the plastic version of this mouthpiece that I have been tested for 6 months, it was already excellent for me. But I decided to have a plastic top (to keep the comfort to my leaps) together with a metallic backbore (#25) to give more weight ... And the result was 2 times better ! Currently I play with it since 2 months, I really recommend it if you are searching a rich and powerful sound mainly in legato phrases, vocalise stuffs, anyway excellent for classical works in my opinion.

As I already use Wedge 66M and 66MD mouthpieces, I was prepared to trail a Guiffredi C. It was a good call. The rim offers a greater focus and control and the cup feels like the most efficient I have experienced. As an all round mouthpiece it is fantastic with a warmth and depth, but still bags of sizzle. Rather than switching between a medium and a medium/deep, I find I'm sticking with the Guiffredi C. Excellent mouthpiece. -Mark A

62 Lead V Trumpet Top 
5 star review
Title: 62LV and 62S Gen II Tops
Date: January 2020
I have been using Wedge MPs for a long time. Years ago Dave made me a custom rim that we called a 6-13 DCG. I had it in med shallow, medium, and med deep cups. Recently I was trying to tweak my endurance a bit and wanted to try a slightly smaller and/or shallower cup but using the Gen II rim. Dave looked good the old drawings and said a 64 Gen II rim was closest to what I had been using so he sent me a 64 LV. It was too shallow for me. I then tried the LV cup on my old 6-13 rim and the cup was still too shallow for me. However, I gave it to a friend who loves it and it has become his lead MP. Next I tried a 62 LV on the Gen II and it was still to shallow for me even in the smaller size. I then called Dave and he said try the 62S on the Gen II. It is perfect! I just have too much lip intrusion to use ES and LV cups, but the 62S worked well. I don't bottom out even after playing a couple hours, my sound is full and I can get above DHC on it. My articulations are clean as well. The that end I have just ordered med and med deep cups to go along with the shallow on this 62 Gen II rim. These are in acrylic and have #25 throats. I will keep using the 62S with a Warburton KT* backbore, and will use the deeper cups with whatever backbore works best. I will use the deepest cup on my C trumpet and the med cup on my picc. I may also use them on my Bb when I am not playing lead. -Blaine P

Title: Increased endurance, feels good, but...
Date: January 2020
Overall, I can go to this mouthpiece when I've worn myself out with one of my others. I like the warm feeling of the plastic when I start playing and it is essential when I'm playing Taps outside when it is cold (I don't stick to the mouthpiece like with metal). I do find there is some loss of brightness in my tone when I plan and the extra stickiness gets annoying at times and can limit my use for a long playing session. My plan is to get an metal top and compare that to the other mouthpieces I have; sort of a more "apples to apples" comparison. -Eric S

This was one size smaller (64) than I normally use. The mouthpiece is comfortable, but I don't think my embouchure is up to the challenge on this one since after 10-15 minutes, my lips tend to protrude into the mouthpiece, cutting off the buzz. For the experienced lead player with good chops, I think this would work well. -John G

Title: 64ES Top 27 Throat
Date: September 2019
I bought this mouthpiece to help me get a little more range on the piccolo (I only can get to a high F and pretty squeeky at that using my 65S with aggressive shallow backbore). Honestly, the ES ended up being too shallow for me, I would lose the buzz after 5 minutes....I'm sure it was an issue with my embouchure. Guess you need to have better chops than mine to use this type of mouthpiece. But the best part about working with Wedge is instead of having an orphan mouthpiece in a drawer was that I was given substantial credit towards another less shallow piece. I'm definately a Wedge guy, and if they ever want to sponsor a crappy player, I'm in...LOL. -John G.

Title: Untitled
Date: June 2019
My history with Wedge is at least 6 years.
I had not played a trumpet in more than 20 years, but picked up my horn on a lark and got hooked again in about 2013. . . wanted to switch to cornet for a mellower sound, but had no cornet mouthpieces; tried about a hundred from a friend in town, but also researched online through Internet Searches, saw the Wedge mentioned, checked you out, was impressed by the intentional medical thought that went into the design, so tried a Wedge cornet mouthpiece. I’m a pharmacologist, after all, so things like blood flow, innervation of musculature, etc., mean something to me.
I was not a “responder” but was persistent, and after a few weeks, decided the Wedge merited a long-term trial.
After a few months playing exclusively on the Wedge, I could still play on conventional Bach mouthpieces, but I disliked like the restrictive feel. I’ve never looked back; I use Wedges exclusively; had a full complement of cornet and trumpet mouthpieces in Bach 3 (66) rim size, but recently (6 or 8 months ago) downsized to a 64 rim size and sold my quiver of B3/66 mouthpieces to a friend . . . now he and his wife, both trumpeters, are Wedge devotees.
I’ve bought all my horns second hand; if you check my order history, I think you’ll see why I’m likely correct when I say I’ve spent as much on Wedge mouthpieces as on horns . . . because it’s true . . . the mouthpiece(s) are more important than the resonating chamber.  
Because I switched to the Wedge during my re-introduction to trumpet/cornet playing, it is tough for me to say that the Wedge improved my sound, range, endurance, etc., but there is something I can absolutely attest to, and I think it makes perfect sense in light of the design of the Wedge rim. No matter how long I practice or perform on any give day, and regardless of how fatigued I may become, my chops are NEVER sore, ever. That was definitely NOT the case when I played on conventional mouthpieces, regardless of rim design or cup depth. If I over-did it, I paid the price the next day or so in sore chops. Since switching to Wedges, I may be tired the day following a day of excessive playing, but the chops are NEVER sore. That’s huge . . . that means I’m exercising the muscles without injury. I’m not restricting blood flow to the embouchure or pinching nerves. My endurance increases linearly with my practice schedule and I never have to rest to repair an injury. I may need to practice lightly some days to give myself some rest, but I NEVER need to lay off to let sore chops heal. -Best regards, Chris

Title: Benefit surprise

Because of Covid I have yet to try my new mouthpiece in my amateur big bands where I play lead trumpet. However I noticed a couple things practicing. At first I seemed to feel muscle fatigue at my left and right corners. (More work needed to keep the seal tight?) But also my upper range (G, A above high C, even double C) can be noticeably louder. (More amplitude of motion available for lip vibration??) My double C has always been a thin squeak not suitable for actual use. Not sure it is all the way there but the help with G and A should be beneficial. -Randy S

After using my new wedge mouthpiece I found a dramatic difference in endurance which was a big problem. The mouthpiece did not hinder my ability to reach higher notes and the sound of my trumpet seems more mellow, at least to me. Thank you so much for the Wedge experience. Mike Gordon

Title: Review of Trumpet Wedge 665MV (Bach 3C replacement)
Date: March 2022
I received my Wedge 665MV within the estimated 7-10 day turn around from when I ordered it. I put this to use right away as I was joining my sons high school band in a combined youth/adult band ensemble for their spring concert. We have twice a week practice for 3 hours after school. I am a novice trumpet player that enjoys playing in community band when I have the opportunity. I have noticed a big change in how long I can play and it feels like I have a larger range now as well. Hitting high notes is not such a strain. (In fact there are times I overshoot my target) Prior to having this Wedge mouthpiece, I would not have made it half way through the above 3 hour practice session before my lip was gone. Now I have no problem making it all the way though and my lip is still in good shape. So overall I am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend this to anyone else. I may be back to buy a Wedge for my son as well. He sits first chair in his high school band program as a sophomore. -Travis G

Title: Remarkable mouthpiece !
Date: March 2022
I tried the Findley 66S, coming from playing on another highly reputable and knowledgeable custom mouthpiece manufacturer’s product. My experience: this Wedge design is truly extraordinary! Freeing up the corners makes a world of difference for me. Furthermore, the rim is the most comfortable I have ever played on. Dr Dave’s profound knowledge of human physiology, and of mouthpiece design and the reality of the demands of trumpet playing, have made his advice invaluable. There will be more Wedge mouthpieces to come for me. They really are that good! -Stephan G

I borrowed a Wedge mouthpiece from a trumpet player at my church. After one practice session, I wanted to play on nothing but a Wedge, and resolved that I had to buy one for myself. After meeting with Dr. Dave, who was incredibly helpful, I settled on a 65M, and couldn’t be happier. -Eben C

I have a good experience with Wedge mouthpiece. Dr. Dave has help me a lot to identify which is most fit size to me. The MDV66 was a good mouthpiece for playing jazz in darker tone. I have tested it in a view weeks. I am happy that there is a return/exchange policy. I asked Dr. Dave to exchange the rim size because it is darker to me who originally has darker sound.

I was struggling in lead Trumpet with my Bach 7c so, on a recommendation from a friend and consult with Dave, I purchased the 65S One Piece Trumpet Mouthpiece. After a month of practice I feel it really helps with reaching the higher notes as well as lengthening my endurance time due to somewhat less effort to continually play in the higher range.

63MV One Piece Trumpet Mouthpiece
5 Star Review
Title: 63MV Trumpet One Piece Brass Mouthpiece
Date: December 2022
I would like to say my recent wedge mouthpiece purchase is nothing but an extremely positive experience. This is my second order this year and my decision to choose the 63MV this time was supported and advised by Dr Dave following a discussion about issues I have been experiencing. My journey to find a mouthpiece which is comfortable, forgiving, and supports me better in the higher range has been a long road over the last three years. I firmly believe you need the right fitting mouthpiece to support your development and a good teacher. The concept Wedge has regarding their lifetime guarantee is excellent; it gives you endless opportunities to find a suitable solution to work with. My lips are thin and tire very quickly. The initial signs I am experiencing with my new mouthpiece are very encouraging to be honest the best I’ve had to date. The quality of sound has improved, I have gained stamina and I don’t seem to be splitting as many notes in the upper register which in turn is helping my confidence and sound quality. Overall I am extremely happy and would encourage anyone who was like myself searching for a mouthpiece and advice to assist their development you cannot fail investing in a wedge. -Andrew D

Title: Great sound and support in full range
Date: December 2021
Been using my 66M mouthpiece for about two weeks, so far, so good... I play with a Stomvi 3C (witch is pretty close to a 1 1/2 Bach) for classical and I needed an all-round mouthpiece for jazz and pop that could help me to deal with fatigue and soarness in long gigs... I find my Wedge very comfortable, with good support in full range. I'd say that it's not a dark mouthpiece per se, actually, it can get pretty bright in upper register. It has a very focused sound, with good intonation, and it's quite easy to work flexibility with it. I'd say that people with great air support or with a tendency to overblow could benefit for a larger size or a bigger throat size (mine has a #27). Last but not least, I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Received my mouthpiece in pretty short time with a careful shipping. -Alejo P

Title: Chuck Findley 66MV
Date: December 2021
Using this mouthpiece over the past 3 months in a Getzen cornet, 66MV with 25 throat. Dr. Dave spent a half hour assessing my style/preferences/abilities, and his recommendations were spot on. The mouthpiece provides better embouchure position and support than the Bach 3C and 3D I had previously used. My endurance was unchanged at first, but significantly improved after 3 weeks. More so, the larger throat is providing a fuller tone and enhanced breath control. Range is slightly improved, and the upper register slotting is amazing ... I own high D! This is a wonderful mouthpiece, and the best musical investment I've made in 20 years. -Will H

I’ve been using Wedge mouthpieces for about 3 years and it was a game changer for my music career as a popular and classical trumpet player. I’m still using my 67MDV and 66MDV with no problem but as soon as I received the 665MDV it was even better because I don’t need to change my mouthpiece for playing commercial music or classical music. I have everything in one mouthpiece. Thanks Dave for your wise advise, Luis B PRSO

Title: Play forever with this mouthpiece.
Date: November 2021
Trumpet playing is hard. Through my entire trumpet journey, I've felt limited by the physical aspects of playing. Articulation, limited. Range, limited. Intervals, limited. Endurance, limited. The only part of my physical playing that was where I wanted it to be was tone. In the past, I'd never really gone on a mouthpiece journey, using my trusty Bach 5A for every style, setting, and every horn (C, Bb, Eb/D, Picc). I let the trumpet go for a couple decades and have been getting interested in playing again and decided to try a Wedge after the many, many Ads that were targeted to me. I used the comparison charts to select the 66RT. The mouthpiece worked pretty well for me initially. It felt a little weird, and my tone got a little brighter than I was used to with my 5A. But wow, the response. I've always struggled starting passages cleanly. Not so with the Wedge. Playing Charlier #2, the initial F just speaks clearly and there was none of the "bounce down" as I descended the F, Db, C, Bb, F, Ab, Gb, F motif that had previously plagued me. Awesome! I tried Charlier #1 and was shocked at how easy articulation felt and maybe more shocked when the large intervals just seemed to fall into place. I initially wasn't completely sold on the mouthpiece because my sound did get a little brighter, but it made me really think about my own perceptions of tone. For example, 25 years ago I'd stopped playing Bb in wind ensemble, and orchestra because the C was giving me the sound I wanted, and I actually blended better with the other trumpets who were usually playing Bb. Was I playing too dark? Maybe? As I continue playing, I'm getting more accustomed to the sound I'm producing and starting to feel comfortable with the tone. The Wedge is certainly providing a characteristic trumpet tone that I'm sure will blend just fine in any setting. I've been playing the Wedge almost exclusively for the past 3 months and the more I play it, the more I love it. It still feels a little strange, but nothing like it used to. Usable range has increased about a major second from when I was "in my prime" both at the high end and the low end. If I count squeaks, range has increased dramatically. I still struggle with articulation, but it's so much easier and clearer with the Wedge. Flexibility is dramatically improved as well, but the one area that has really sold me on the Wedge is endurance. Long and loud passages have nowhere near the pain and struggle that they used to have. But what's really surprised me is that in a normal playing session with normal rests, I feel like I can play forever. Did you know your arms can wear out before your chops do? I just learned that a couple weekends ago. The 66RT works exceptionally well on the Bb and C trumpets (piston valves), and is OK (still better than the 5A) on the Eb/D. I'm guessing I'd be happier with a 66M or something like that for the smaller horns and picc, but that's an experiment for another day. Thank you Dr. Dave for combining your love of trumpet playing and your knowledge of the human body to design what's really been a game changer of a mouthpiece for me. -Dan H

Devo,dire che all’inizio ero molto perplesso sull’uso di una imboccatura non parallela, ma devo dive che è molto efficiente, ti permette di modulare le eventuali difficoltà muscolari molto bene, aiuta la costruzione di una muscolatura verso lo strumento e permette anche di avere più resistenza. Il suono non mi dispiace anche se dipende molto,dall’esecutore, usato sia sulla sib che sulla do è molto pronto. -Luca C

Title: Trumpet players take notice of “The wedge” mouthpiece!
Date: October 2021
Plays really easily with a nice fat sound, and has enabled a richer sound at both ends of my range. Upper register playing more easily around top C and am really enjoying “The blues” style of music. Only took a couple of days to feel really natural and am playing every day with no lip fatigue. This mouthpiece arrived one day ahead of schedule in New Zealand so I was thrilled as I had been waiting for just over a month. Having a zoom discussion with Dr Dave was very beneficial and I would recommend doing that as he is very knowledgeable. -Neil C

Title: A great mouthpiece!
Date: October 2021
I used to play my jazz gigs with a larger mouthpiece and suffered from loss of stamina and difficulties with the upper register. I decided to go for smaller cup size, but did not want a "lead" mouthpiece. By Dr. Dave's recommendation I chose this excellent new mouthpiece. It took some time for me to get used to this model, but after 2 days of playing it really started to feel great. After about a month it just keeps getting better. It gives me a great sounding lower / middle register and helps me with the high notes. I would recommend this piece to anyone playing Bach 3C or similar and hoping to get a somewhat brighter overall sound and better flexibility from their gear. Thank you so much, Dave / Wedge Mouthpieces! -Martti V

Title: #1 in Customer Service!!

I made a “hit or miss” purchase on a heavy blank 3BC recently. I say hit or miss because the 3BC DOC has been out of production for quite some time now. I felt that after new tooling and settings over time, the chances receiving a perfect fit/feel would be sheer luck.. Well, I was right. My chops could tell the inner diameter was too open on the new piece. Good news is, although a custom piece, Dr. Harrison was very understanding, and worked with me and I am a “Happy Camper” again. THANK YOU Dr. Harrison & Daniel for the awesome service & a gem of a of a mouthpiece.. Please give them a shout!! -Jerome J

Title: Great Mouthpiece!!

On first playing this mouthpiece it didn’t feel completely natural. However, after 2 weeks of playing everyday it has just got better and better. For a fairly shallow cup the sound production is amazing! It doesn’t have the laser beam type sound which can be common with a mouthpiece of this depth and specs. Flexibility is a plus with this design and my accuracy seems to be more consistent. I highly recommended this wedge mouthpiece. I will be looking at getting a whole set to cater for all my playing needs. -John P

Now—how to find a suitable wedge with this rim for a cornet mouthpiece to play on my Bach cornet as the website is a bit confusing with the British sizes?

Title: Fantastic mouthpiece!

After speaking with Dr Dave, I was fully anticipating the need to have an adjustment period with my new mouthpiece. For me this was not the case, I immediately felt comfortable playing it and it is now my absolute favorite! For the entire time that I've played trumpet for over 40 years, I've always had a ring around my lips after playing, it does not happen anymore! My playing time has extended, and my range is definitely more clear. I highly recommend this investment and if you're not someone (like me) that immediately adjusts to it, give it time and keep trying with it, the outcome is well worth it! -Michele H

Title: Great Mouthpiece…Worth Purchasing!
Date: May 2021
The mouthpiece has a much easier ‘feel’ around the lips in that you are able to have more control when hitting low and high notes.It sits comfortably around your lips.Awesome experience! Your lips do not feel tired even after 1-2 hours of heavy practice! You can also purchase a bronze weight to be added to the mouthpiece to create a tighter sound still... I like the weight on my Delrin because I play with expression and the vibration is less pronounced with the weight added on! In all,you notice the pressure is much more even when playing with the Delrin ; and evenness of tone is one of the many advantages. Worth the money...I will be purchasing a Delrin for my trombone and my other trumpets in the future. 😊 Thank you - Nick G.

Right out of the box the first licks/scales felt more relaxed and smooth. Most of the time I'm playing the Trombone 108 or 97c and with ALL this time we've got away from everyone these days I've been freshening my trumpet/cornet experiences. The 665 is easier on my lips/embouchure. Range is broader with deeper tone and the opportunity to explore techniques, attacks, subtle changes feels far more enjoyable again because the oval shape suits my lips... I like to whistle alot.... its a natural sensation and the Wedge suits well letting my lips respond similarily in a mouthpiece. Thank you Team Wedge. -Michael P

When I first used the MP I was at a plateau with my old MP. I thought I would give it a week and see what happens. At first it took some getting used to---but by day 3 or 4 it started to feel better. Range is coming back but endurence is still not good but getting better. Sound is very good and I like that-- with good sound all is lost. Big puzzle is when I run out of steam it just quits I can't cheat to get a sound. The pandemic has provided me the opportunity to explore this MP. Looks like I'm going to love it. -John D

Title: Excellent mouthpiece, it really works!
Date: February 2021
I was a little skeptical at first and didn't think this mouthpiece would bring all the benefits promised by the manufacturer. After only 5 minutes I adapted well to the mouthpiece! Fantastic results! Excellent slot, excellent intonation, improved attack, no loss of register and much more comfort on the lips compared to the conventional mouthpiece. I recommend Wedge mouthpieces! Dave Harrison (the owner of the company) is an exceptional person, ready to answer any questions and clear up any doubts. Shipping a bit long for Italy, but for such an excellent product the wait is never too much! Thanks Mr. Harrison and Wedge Mouthpiece company! Very satisfied! -Giovanni Q

Title: Wedge mouthpiece
Date: February 2021
Dave is very willing to discuss concerns you may have regarding mouthpiece selections and he is very willing to suggest that you may be better off staying with a conventional mouthpiece. In other words he is not pushing his mouthpiece to the point that his advice is slanted and not very useful. Also, the return policy allows you to at least give the mouthpiece a try and evaluate before making a decision. I have tried the mouthpiece and so far after three days I am inclined to say that I like playing on the mouthpiece. I will give the mouthpiece a fair trial of a few weeks before making a decision.

Title: My new 65S may have actually ended my mouthpiece search!
Date: January 2021
Overall experience? Excellent! Like all brass players, I'm always on the quest for the One True Mouthpiece To Rule Them All. My last two were an Asymmetric Lead and then a Bach 3C; I was sure I had simply plateaued as a player. I eventually ordered a Wedge 65S and was surprised that even the very first time I practiced with it I thought it blew and slotted more easily than any mouthpiece I had tried before. Even practicing is more fun now. Thanks, Dr. Dave! -Owen M.

Title: 66 MDV 5 Degree Angled Rim
Date: January 2021
My endurance and flexibility improved significantly and also my range is slightly better. The most important issue is endurance giving a solid foundation for good practice sessions. For me angled rim is a crucial factor. I have been trying also regular rim 67 MDV. It produced improvements but not so much as the angled rim version. It also feels more comfortable. Maybe trying even a 10 degree angled rim… -Markku T.

Title: Chuck Findley 66S
Date: January 2021
I considered trying a wedge for quite a while before purchasing. I have to say that immediately the sound was richer right across the range and the instrument (Bach Strad ML43) felt better with any minor tuning issues (such as sharp A) greatly diminished. Swelling after long sessions is greatly reduced - increasing endurance and subsequent tone quality. The orientation of the piece is surprisingly of virtually no issue once the piece is initially placed into the lead pipe to complement my usual orientation of the instrument. Really pleased - thank you very much! -Ian D.

Title: 66MD One Piece 
Date: January 2021
It didn't take me any time to get used to mouthpiece in general. Have been using a Marcinkiewicz E3.1 mouthpiece which was good, but lost some clarity below the register. With the new mp I lost a couple of notes in the upper register, but knew that would happen since the Wedge cup model I ordered wasn't as shallow. The Wedge has a more open, full tone. In my opinion, better than the Bach 5C and Getzen 5C mp's. I play it with a 1970's Bach Strad model 37 and a 1970's Getzen Eterna Severensin model and consider myself an intermediate player. playing mostly for church. -Martin H.

Title: Range and Endurance
Date: January 2021
I started with a 66ES and found that I was able to reach double high G more consistently, but was unable to play well in the lower register. After switching back to my Back 3E, I found that I had gained both range and endurance. After talking with Dr. Dave, I switched traded the 66ES for a less shallow 66S and expect to maintain my range and endurance while regaining the lower register. My experience as a customer was outstanding. I was treated with patience and respect and was educated on why I responded in the manner I did to the mouthpiece. -Kevin G.

Title: Good for a beginner
Date: January 2021
I’ve only been playing the trumpet for a little over year. As an older player, starting in retirement, I found standard mouthpieces to take a real toll on my lips. The Yamaha 11B4 was pretty quickly replaced by the Bach 5c, but even with the 5c, after an hour of practice my lips would really hurt. I consulted Dr. Dave online regarding size, and he suggested the 66MV. It has been a very positive change. I can now play for several hours without pain, and my tone is markedly better. My range suffered initially, but now exceeds what I was able to do with the 5c. The 66MV forces me to push my corners more forward, so my embouchure is better.

So far this has been good. I'm an older player -, age 80, returning to trumpet after 55 years. Endurance and range has been slow returning and is still a work in progress. Over the last 10 months, using the BE instruction program by Jeff Smiley and the Delrin 65MV, I have made steady progress. I struggled getting a high G previously but now routinely get a high C and sometimes above. Endurance has improved as well. I limit practice to about 60 minutes per day. - Russell B.

Title: My new Wedge
Date: December 2020
After getting a new set of dentures, I was unable to play my trumpet with the standard mouthpiece I had and became very frustrated. After reading about the Wedge mouthpiece on Facebook and it's unique design, I thought it might help me with my problem. Daniel and Dr. David listened to my problem and made a suggestion to the one best for me. When it arrived I read the instructions on the box that told how to place the Wedge in my trumpet according to two dots on it. At first I was a little disappointed because it didn't seem to help, but I don't give up easily. I thought about it a while, the design and my denture problem, and decided to place the dots on the side instead on the top like suggested. That made a huge difference, now I love it and so glad I found the Wedge and the Harrisons. The ease of playing my trumpet and the sound is amazing. -Thelma P

Title: 62 lead 5 mouthpiece  
Date: December 2020
This is a small mouthpiece of a size that I am used to playing on. Initially I found that I could get a nice sound with little effort. The range was ok to G above top C which is my normal range.afer a short time of playing I found that the sound become weak and a little muffled and lip vibrations became so weak I couldn’t produce much sound. I feel this is probably my own fault for choosing such a small mouthpiece despite the fact that I normally use a Bach 20c. It may be the oval design of the rim that is not giving as much space in the cup. I feel that I would probably get on with a larger mouthpiece but how large? OverallI recommend the wedge mouthpiece I think with the right size cup it would be of great benefit to any brass player.

Title: Great Trumpet Mouthpiece
Date: October 2020
It felt different having played the same mouthpiece for the last 5 years, however I believe the Wedge design has helped me to focus on the embouchure muscles needed to improve my aperture, resulting in a better tone. I was however able to play quite freely and now only after a week my old mouthpiece feels different. I have a trumpet exam in 10 days and although I am still getting totally used to new mouthpiece, it will be the new one I will use for my exam. After the exam I will explore if my range and endurance have improved - just concentrating on the exam at the moment. -Graham M

Title: Chuck Findley 66 MV Trumpet Mouthpiece
Date: October 2020
Received my mouthpiece a few weeks ago. Transition from conventional mouthpiece was very easy. It immediately felt „right“. Most prominent differences for me are the ability to play with more ease in the upper register, endurance seems to benefit as well. It feels very comfortable all round the lips without any pressure points. The aperture corners of the lips seem more flexible, thus making it easier to play intervals with the notes slotting very well. I am extremely happy with the purchase and will order a wedge for my Flügelhorn as well. Excellent product. Thanks for all the help and advice via the phone as well. Norbert P., Germany

Title: Fantastic Mouthpiece!!
Date: October 2020
I purchased the Delrin 63ES as an extreme high register piece for my Bb horn. When it arrived, I expected it to feel very tight with the possibility of bottoming out (my chops hitting the bottom of the cup and halting the air). Neither of these things happened. This mpc is ideally bright and my lips has never come close to hitting bottom. An added plus is that it plays terrifically well on my Carol Brass piccolo. The tone on the pic is that classic rich and bright sound - and with great latitude on intonation adjustments. Give it a try! If you're like me, you'll be pleasantly surprise and greatly satisfied with the result. -Robert S

Title: The Wedge

I loved it at first try. I thought I would feel a difference with the side missing on M/P, but it felt good, and less stressful while playing. What really impressed me was the dedication and follow-up that made this M/P so unique. Dave has done his home-work, and I have the proof to back it up. The only adjustment I had to make was keeping my trumpet straight. The dots on M/P is designed to be used in a vertical line. I had a habit of playing with a slight angle of horn while playing. The rim on B/P feels soft and confrontable. The comparison chart used for my selection was a good match for my previous B/P. Dave, Thank You. -Fred M

It started as an experiment. I read about Wedge mouthpieces and decided to buy one - to keep the financial risk low, a Delrin one.

As the heights are not as brilliant as before with the traditional lathe-made Selmer S 3 which I have been using for quite some time, I keep on practising. I noticed that I had been applying too much pressure on the lips before. Now I have to train mere lip tension. So at least the Wegde opened my "eyes" for mistakes I have learned and applied all the time... – Albrecht S

Title: 65 M 1pc. Mouthpiece
Date: August 2020
I've been playing on this mouthpiece for about a month now and one word sums it up. WOW! I wish I had this mouthpiece 20 years ago. I'm 67 years old and have been playing trumpet since I was 9. Like most trumpet players I've accumulated a collection of mouthpieces. For the last 5 years I've been playing on a Parduba 6. The adjustment to the Wedge was seamless. The mouthpiece is very comfortable. I'm already finding that I don't tire as quickly. My high C and D are coming out with little effort and I'm now playing a good solid E which has eluded me the last few years. I have even hit an F and I think in a short time I'll have that. My tone has not been affected at all, in fact, my tone in the upper register has improved. One of my early trumpet teachers wanted me to have dental work done to improve my range. Back then it would have been braces. I wouldn't do that. The Wedge Mouthpiece is a game changer for me. I'm anxious for the various bands and ensembles that I play with to start back up. If you are considering dental work to improve your range, I would say try this mouthpiece first. Dr. Dave is very helpful in guidance for selecting the proper size. I don't see me going back to my Parduba. I give my 65M 5 Stars! -John M. Pennsylvania

It felt a little unfamiliar for a couple of days but then it got even better: I have acquired way more endurance and richer sound as well as clean articulation in single, double and triple tonguing. This is a fantastic medium sized mouthpiece which is very versatile and could either serve for classical or jazz Well done Dave Harrison & the team at Wedge. -Raffaele B

Ho aspettato tanto tempo causa Covid19 per averlo ma alla fine è stato il benvenuto..

Title: 77 years old and still blowing!
Date: July 2020
I've been playing trumpet for 68 years and played every style known to man! Except for the Covid-19 pandemic, I still play in a big jazz band, a community concert band, and a church orchestra. I stay competitive, practice every day, and more than hold my own against far younger and very talented trumpeters. However, it ain't easy! A friend of mine has bought a Wedge and tells me it has increased his endurance without compromising his range or his tone. I have always been of the mind that you play one mouthpiece for all your needs, but as my range began to suffer I added a second mouthpiece designed solely for the high range. And it has worked for that purpose, but my sound became thin and tinny and predictably my low tones suffered. I was embarrassed to have two mouthpieces at the ready depending if I have high notes (C, D, and E) to play, and my chosen mouthpiece for notes and passages that were lower. So, I ordered the Wedge...specifically the 63ES one-piece mouthpiece. Believe me, it is unique! It takes some work but is well worth it. My high range is back to big, fat and sassy! My tone is warm and round and, well, beautiful! It slots very well and I glide smoothly between notes and intervals are accurate and spot-on. The Wedge feels good on the lips and is a pleasure to play. My endurance? Let me just say that after my lip is shot...I still have what it takes for a considerable while longer. I love it! The only problem is, what to do with the other 27 mouthpieces I've accumulated over the years? I only need this ONE! -Bruce S

Title: The Wonderful Wedge Edge
Date: July 2020
I find myself using both my original Getzen 5C and the new Wedge for my daily practice sessions. I do my warm up with the 5C and play until my 75 year old lips get floppy and then I switch to the Edge. This cool (temperature) mouthpiece gives me a second chance and I find myself playing another session which is usually longer than the first before my lips give out again. The higher notes are always more readily available with the Wedge. I am very happy with my new Edge mouthpiece. This 65MV works so well that it would be interesting to try other Wedge mouthpieces considering the age of my lips. I am having a hard time getting back to the lip endurance that I had 50 years ago. Thank you for your time and thank you, again, for this Wonderful Wedge Edge. -Gary A

Title: 67MDV one piece: Great product. A must-try
Date: June 2020
Definitely improved flexibility and yet the slotting seems easier. I've been working a lot on interval slurs and have went from about an octave to a P14 pretty smoothly. Range as a talking point increased about a minor 3rd. I used to have a wedge to my teeth but after an injury in the army I had my top 4 teeth pulled and dental implants to replace them. It's been a strange road learning to play the trumpet all over again but a wedge was a good investment. I noticed an immediate improvement in endurance from first session. I still play some on my Bach 1 1/2C for certain styles but my 67MDV is my main go-to choice. I'm currently going to be looking into the ES and LV wedge for big band and combo playing. -Shane W

Title: Excellent mouthpiece
Date: June 2020
It took me about a week to adjust, but once I did, it has certainly helped my playing. I typically have favored wider and flatter rims, but this rim was very comfortable and allowed for easier flexibility immediately. Sound and articulation were similar to my Bach, which I like, as well. -Tom D

I always love working with the group of people at Wedge MP. Dave is always willing to give sound and knowledgeable feedback. I tried several mouthpieces before I settled on the one that felt right for me, all with Dave’s opinions based on the information I had given him. I now use the Wedge on both my trumpet and flugelhorn and both are working out well for me. -Jay D

Title: Initial Evaluation of Wedge Pierobon Lead Trumpet Mouthpiece
Date: June 2020
Immediately noticed an improvement in intonation (my wife also noticed and provided confirmation on what I was hearing). Pedal tones, while difficult at first, arrived suddenly a few days later, as did the upper register. Sweet! The Pierobon Lead mouthpiece was one of three that Dr. Dave recommended to replace my Schilke 14A4; he aced it! The Wedge is an interesting design that continues to amaze me in its effectiveness. Great gains in a few short weeks (received the mouthpiece on 28 April 2020). The Pierobon Lead mouthpiece is an excellent companion to my Yamaha YTR-8310Z. Thank you! -Douglas G., Ohio, USA

Title: 63 ES Review
Date: June 2020
I am a 67 year old trumpet novice. No matter how much - or little - I've worked at it, getting to a high C and sustaining the note has been a huge challenge. I bought the 63ES based on nothing more than desperation. I'd tried many other mouthpieces including plastic. This mouthpiece has gotten me re-invigorated to keep pushing! My range and technique have improved and once I achieved a high C I found that I could sustain the note far longer than I had imagined. This mouthpiece somehow retards fatigue and my sound has improved. As with many things in life, a little encouragement can go a long ways. Now that I've tried the 63ES I'm eager to research how I might achieve even better results with one of your other models. Thanks for bringing back some enjoyment to my trumpet playing! -William W

Title: 665 MDV Trumpet Mouthpiece - a winner

Dave, I have now been playing on the Wedge 665 MDV One Piece Trumpet Mouthpiece for one month. Truly, it's embouchure comfort is unmatched. I can play/practice for multiple hours one day without getting up the next day with sore chops. In addition, it is a great hybrid between my Bach 3C and 1.5C. A nice upper register, with the resonance of the larger 1.5C Bach. Your advice on which mouthpiece to choose was right on target. Soon I will be contacting you with your suggestion about which mouthpiece to use for strictly lead work. You are a fine mouthpiece maker. Thank you. -Ron L, Dallas, TX.

Title: OK.....this is a serious piece of equipment!
Date: June 2020
I'm new to the Wedge Mouthpiece. I ordered the stock one piece Findley 66MV and much to my surprise the rim design didn't feel awkward or even all that foreign. I found the sound to be full and warm with lots of color. Whether playing Concone, Top Tones (W. Smith) or working out Jazz patterns, I found multiple articulations (single, double, triple, doodle) spoke nicely. The high register was actually quite easy.....no, this isn't a trick mp for high notes, it's a real, seriously designed piece of equipment. I'm excited to be moving towards the Wedge Mouthpieces. Oh yeah...I just ordered 2 more. Life is good. -Ray V

Would say I have past the transition stage and am very pleased with the improvements. The major difference I notice is the rim design requires less pressure over a traditional flat rim. This in turn benefits range, endurance and response. Also the combination of the V cup and delrin / plastic provides a nice mellow sound. Also kudos to the folks at your Company. Received e mail up dates on my order and questions received a prompt response -Fred B

Title: 66MDV One Piece Trumpet Mouthpiece

It needed a bit of practice to really get the feel of this mouthpiece, especialy for the lower notes. But the efforts (not that much, in reality) were worth it. High notes are clear, the middle ones as well, and the lower pitch feels and sounds more full. I also believe that I get a better sound projection. I also compare it regularily to my other three (my very first old Bach of fifty five years, a newer Bach and a Olds), and I can clearly sense the difference. Endurance is also gained. Overall, I am very satisfied with this new mouthpiece. Impressive design. -Jean

Title: Impressive Mouthpiece
Date: May 2020
My overall experience with my Wedge mouthpiece has been very good. Dr. Dave gave me very good advice about which mouthpiece would be a good choice for me based on my previous piece which was a Shilke 14A4A and my desired results. Upon receiving the new piece I was very pleased that it felt pretty comfortable right away. I also had I bigger and darker sound on the piece which was desirable. My range is consistent with the Shilke but sound is richer. It has been about 3 weeks and I feel very happy with the comfort and sound. I have not had a chance to get a real sense of my endurance which is my main goal but I feel confident that once I am able to resume live performances that I will see an improvement. I highly recommend trying a Wedge. -Michael C L

Title: Step up.
Date: March 2020
I’ve had my Wedge for a couple of weeks. There was initial improvement immediately in tone, hitting and holding pitch centers, high register tone, endurance and a step or so up the high register. Hitting pitches reliably was off some and I had some lip corner leaking. However, continued practice seems to be improving all of these. I’m using a regular mouthpiece on my flugel and I seem to have a better feel for that. I doubt I’ll go back to my regular trumpet mouthpiece. When my funds allow I may try one for my flugel. I think everyone should give the wedge a serious trial -William J K

Title: Wedge 64ES
Date: March 2020
I purchased the Wedge and immediately started practicing with it. Typically I practice an hour to an hour and a half everyday, missing no more than one day on rare occasions. The pros: - the mouthpiece feels very comfortable - my sound is a little fuller with the Wedge The cons: - I immediately lost about a third off my range and have not yet gained it back - my endurance is not as good with the Wedge I have used the mouthpiece exclusively, except for two days when I switched back and forth a few times during my practice session just to verify that I was not doing anything different and that my range was better with my Bobby Shew Lead mouthpiece... it was. Since my primary purpose for the purchase was for an increase in range and endurance, unless something changes pretty quickly, I'd have to say that this particular mouthpiece is not working as planned. -Lew L

Title: DHC mouthpiece
Date: March 2020
Sound quality notably improved for classical applications, but still undecided about improved range, while the shaping of the piece does address my slight under bite. I also feel that I still have to place my embouchure higher above center for most dependable sound. For range improvement I thought so at first but feels quite variable based on fatigue obviously. However I am taking the main advice from Dr Dave about nothing being better than practice, so I am putting a lot of time into studies and exercises to improve my technique and breath control before I decide about improved range. -Regards, Eric

Title: Chuck Findlay 66S Wedge Mouthpiece Review
Date: March 2020
There’s a bit of a learning curve for the embouchure but nothing a few hours of serious practice didn’t handle. This mouthpiece replaces my Dennis Wick 3C “heavy top” which I have used exclusively for about 15 years playing lead in a big band and also first chair in a community philharmonic band. My low range is hampered by this mouthpiece but I don’t miss it cause I don’t go there much. I’m 68 now and am not too worried about restricting myself in that area. As for the top end I didn’t see much difference in upper range, but no surprise there. The Wick is awesome there for my lip. Where this Wedge shines is in increased stamina as well as ease of hitting the higher notes. It’s just easier. At my advanced age that is a godsend. As we age, muscle mass reduces, and the muscle in the lip appears not to be an exception. One of my strong suits as a player was always my stamina and I’ve noticed a slow but appreciable drop in that regard in the last ten years or so. The Wedge has put me back into my comfort zone. Thank you so much. Definitely worth the high end price...now if only you could do something like this for my eyes! -Jim M

Title: 65S One Piece Trumpet Mouthpiece
Date: March 2020
As a comeback player (40 years of not playing), I'm enjoying the process of figuring out how chops really work (so much information on youtube) and beginning the process of retraining. I figured I would check out the wedge, and my first purchase was the less expensive plastic "bach3c" model. I continue to use this as my daily practice mouthpiece. For fun, I decided to purchase the 65S. Definitely a strong "high-range" mp. Very comfortable to play, and the sound is remarkably good (though very definitely a shallow mp sound) even in lower ranges. I'll most likely be getting a wedge for my flugel as well as a metal wedge akin to the bach3c or similar. -George C

I adjusted to the mouthpiece immediately and the horn blows noticeably easier in the upper register.

Title: Plastic .650 MV and a comeback player
Date: February 2020
I played trumpet back in high school in the 1970s. I was a pretty decent player and dedicated to practicing, but never played anything above C6 (and even that was an effort). Got back into playing a month ago, and have been scouring youtube for embouchure ideas. Anyway, I'm experimenting with some new (to me) ideas based on what makes sense to me, and figured as long as I'm starting over why not try a different mouthpiece? I was somewhat skeptical about the wedge, but I'm kind of a scienc-y and geeky guy so I thought "why not try it." I was a bit shocked by the sticker price, so I opted for the less expensive plastic one piece that the comparison chart said was closest to a bach 3c. While I've only been playing now for about 5 weeks, I will say I'm pretty happy with the Wedge. My range has extended a bit beyond my high school range --- perhaps partly due to a "reset" of my embouchure --- but if I switch back and forth between my regular 3c and the Wedge there is a definite difference --- the Wedge is provides a bit more comfort and security in the upper register. I did not opt for the tone ring offered with the plastic mouthpiece. In hindsight, I probably should have. However, I am happy enough (which means, pretty outstandingly happy) that I have ordered a second Wedge mouthpiece --- this time a metal one --- with a slightly different cup depth. (I'm pretty tight with a dime, so I'm pretty convinced that this is a good investment.). -George C

Title: Wow!
Date: February 2020
The trumpet is not my main instrument, I play trombone and tuba in a dixieland band. I was so impressed with my first Wedge for trombone that I wanted to have one for my other horns. I must thank Dave for his patience, especially concerning the choice of this mouthpiece (before settling on this model I pestered him with lots of questions about flugelhorn and cornet models). Now, about the mouthpiece - I'm extremely happy! One thing I was absolutely sure of was the level of comfort it would provide - the contour edge fits the lips so well that it lets me virtually eliminate any kind of mouthpiece pressure, and Delrin really feels good on the lips. It also darkens my tone a bit, which (in my case) is a good thing. Definitely recommended, and I will soon be back to buy more mouthpieces for my other instruments. Thank you very much! -Lorenzo P

Title: New Go-To Mouthpiece
Date: February 2020
I've been playing on my Wedge for 3 months and it's now my go-to piece. This mouthpiece is better than any other I've played on- it increased my range, endurance, improved my articulation and is very comfortable. (Not drastically, but noticeabley. This is not going to magically make you an amazing trumpet player) I played on a 1 1/2C for 10 years and every time I tried something new, it was not as good. This one was different. One advantage/disadvantage is the adjustment period. I found that I could instantaneously play better on the wedge and the curve of the mouthpiece didn't bother me at all. However, I found that you really have to have the corners engaged with this mouthpiece, so my endurance was actually weaker at first. After about a month of playing on it and figuring it out a little more, my endurance has increased. The biggest flaw would be positioning the mouthpiece where you want it when you play, but the advantages outweigh this issue for me. The last thing I would like to mention is Dr. Dave- he was extremely helpful, responsive to all my questions and helped me get the right size. It's an expensive mouthpiece, but if you do a lot of playing and are not happy with your current mouthpiece, try it! -Jonathan S

Title: Son's endurance has increased
Date: January 2020
My 12-year old son with a severe overbite got the 10-degree wedge mouthpiece. He is holding his trumpet more in line with his peers, and has increased his endurance while playing. He was randomly selected for County Band and had a six-hour practice day, which was far greater in length than any practicing he had done before. He complained that night that his teeth felt loose (I confirmed for him that they weren't) but that his lips were comfortable. His major complaint was a minor chapping. He was able to play the concert the following day with confidence and with a great sound. He has said several times that it is much more comfortable to play on the wedge than on either his Bach 3C or 7C mouthpieces. I think that I made the right choice for him. -Jamie B

Title: 67 MDV - what a sweet sound
Date: January 2020
The 67 MDV is the mouthpiece that I acquired most recently. I have to admit that, after the instant acclimatisation to the other four pieces (MV, MD, RT, and FL), it took me much longer to find the right feel and blow on the MDV. I don't really know why, and I could only venture a guess, but I think it just had to do with its particular cup depth that I was having some difficulty adjusting to. So, after almost sending it back, I thought that maybe I just need to give some more, and exclusive, playing time. That did it! Without switching back and forth between mouthpieces I was able to get used to it and find its air & sound center. I love the rich, sweet sound it produces, and I now play principally on that piece, so I'm really glad I found the patience to stick with it! I hope relating this experience will be helpful to others who are new to the Wedge products. They are fantastic! -Michael A

I ordered the 65 MDV after speaking with Dr. Dave. I previously played a Schilke 13C4. The "Wedge" was very easy to adapt to. I play in a Concert Band and a Jazz Band. I noticed that my endurance was increased and I didn't get the tired feeling in my chops after our long rehearsals. After my first time using my new mouthpiece in the band, My conductor (who I previously told I was getting the wedge) asked it I got it yet. When I told him I used it tonight for the first time, he told me that my tone sounded better. I am 59 years old and this is the band instructor that taught me how to play back in the 7th grade!. He is still playing and conducting our bands! I am very pleased with the Wedge and I use it as my number one mouthpiece. -Michael L.

I immediately noticed the difference, sound, centering, resistance even after 4 hours between exercises and tests. Excellent mouthpiece. I'm not going back ... 5 stars Thank you very much

Title: I tried the Chuck Findley model
Date: November 2019
I found the rim to be more comfortable than the Bach 3C rim I am accustomed to playing. The cup however on the 66M seemed a bit shallow, even though I could play it fairly well. But I am not accustomed to playing shallow cups so I felt no immediate benefit from the mouthpiece in range or volume of sound. My tone was actually a little warmer and less edgey on the 66M. I felt this was because I felt my chops were not vibrating as freely because of the shallow cup. I would recommend it for someone who normally plays a shallower cup because the rim is more comfortable than standard rims. I intend to try another Wedge model that has a slightly deeper, thanks to the helpful return/ exchange policy they have at Wedge. -Joseph M.

I hadn’t played for nine years. After receiving the Wedge and practicing three days, I was playing higher than I thought possible. My tone was fuller, and I discovered I could play much softer with much less lip pressure and effort. Buy one now! -Neil G.

Title: Works as Advertised

I am a 55 year old community band player and have been playing the 66MV for about 6 weeks - replacing the Yamaha Bobby Shew Jazz I had been playing for several years. I can say with confidence that I have experienced improved range and stamina with the 66MV. I am glad that this mouthpiece is helping me to reduce the effects of Father Time which is giving me the confidence to continue my solo work around town. As a result of this experience, I have also ordered Wedge mouthpieces for my picc and flugelhorn. -Mark J

Title: Wedge 665MDV review
Date: October 2019
I recently took over playing lead in a big band and I was struggling with range and endurance. After discussing with Dr. Dave, I purchased a 665MDV single piece mouthpiece, which, is a little large for playing lead but somewhat smaller than my previous setup. I immediately noticed all of the advertised benefits. My range, although it only improved slightly, was more solid, the notes slot better, my endurance improved immensely and the overall sound improved. In a blind test, I asked my wife which mouthpiece sounded better, without hesitation, she immediately picked the wedge. Thanks Dr. Dave, I will be back for more for other instruments. -Ian B

Title: 67MV - Great medium sized piece!!
Date: October 2019
This was the first Wedge that I ordered last March after many weeks of examining the website and communicating extensively with Dr. Dave. His exhaustive advice and constant availability are unique in the entire music business, and he guided me to my initial purchase. Since then I've purchased several other excellent mouthpieces for flugelhorn, piston trumpet, and rotary trumpet. What really struck me immediately about the 67MV was its richness of tone and ease of response. I would describe it as a medium-small cup (for me at least) and I found the depth to be similar to a Yamaha or Schilke B cup or a Bach 3C. Being (subjectively, of course) on the bright side of the timbre scale, I knew right away that an MD cup would probably become my standard piece, and in fact that's the way it has turned out. Will I send this piece back? Absolutely not!! It's great for work that requires a more (slightly more) cutting edge in the sound and greater projection, like pop/rock music or a high but non-lead big band part. However, it can also be used for symphonic work where an inherently dark sound is not vitally necessary. What was so amazing about this mouthpiece is that once I started playing it I never went back to my conventional mouthpieces, which btw are excellent. I played in a symphonic film-score concert just four days after it arrived! Dr. Dave described this situation as me being a "Wedge Responder", and I can only confirm that this is so. I am also extremely satisfied with the 67MD, 67RT, and 67FL that I own and reviewed at the beginning of August of this year (if anyone might be interested in reading those reviews). I repeat what I've already written in my reviews and on the Wedge FB page, that in my experience everything that is claimed on the Wedge website is true. And this is because behind the design, development, and subsequent evolution of Wedge mouthpieces is science, medical knowledge, and research. These mouthpieces are unique, and they work beautifully for me. AND, they've breathed new enthusiasm into my life of music making! -Michael A.

Title: My New Main Mouthpiece
Date: October 2019
After playing my Yamaha YTR6310Z trumpet with the 66MV wedge mouthpiece for 3 weeks, including 3 public performances, I can say the transition is finalized. My main playing genre is jazz, including improvised solos, in combo and big band ensembles. Been playing trumpet over 60 years now and have not won any high note awards yet. Try to play an hour or so each day, but lapses do occur. Therefore, good enough endurance to get thru the gig is always an issue. The wedge mouthpiece has helped a little to improve endurance. Also makes C to D above the staff a little more attainable in active playing situations. It is more comfortable. Attack precision and flexibility are good. Tone is also good to my ear – maybe a little brighter than with the Yamaha 14B4. None of my listeners have asked if something is wrong or am I feeling OK – this is a good sign. Making sure the dots are properly vertically aligned takes some getting used to. I find myself checking each time I begin playing; the mouthpiece does not work well if the dots aren’t vertical. It is also not a magic mouthpiece. Improvements, in my experience, are marginal, but every little bit of improvement is gladly appreciated. So, bottom line: the wedge mouthpiece is working for me, and I plan to order one for my flugelhorn and maybe another trumpet one for emergency lead situations soon. -James Roger V.

Title: My new wedge mouthpiece.
Date: October 2019
I am a veteran player, an octogenerian and so the idea of not teaching an old dog new tricks sprung to mind when I ordered my mouthpiece. More like curiosity and the generous money back guarantee. I am also a procrastinator and looked at the mouthpiece for over a week before summoning the courage to try it. Why I hesitated I shall never know. I found the mouthpiece a delight. My sound improved and I was aware of more comfort with little evidence of pressure on the sides of my embouchure. My top range has increase in power although a high F rather than a G is now the reality. This could and should change in time but overall I am more than pleased with this mouthpiece which I bought on the strength of a YouTube clip of Dave(?) playing with the mouthpiece. Just pondering now whether to buy a flugel mouthpiece. -Colin J.

Title: Verdict Still Out
Date: October 2019
My first reaction to the 66MDV was uncertainty as to it's whether or not it would produce the desired results. My tone was not as full and there was no noticeable range improvement. However, after a few days of practice, I found my tone more closely matching the full, dark tone I'm used to. I do feel a significant improvement in flexibility. My range did not improve initially, however, after two weeks it seems to have improve slightly. At my first band rehearsal after using the 66MDV for about 2 weeks I did seem to have better endurance. I am considering exchanging for a different size, but want to give this another week or two. The concept of the Wedge seems to work well. I just want to be certain I have the best model for my desired results. -Kyle A.

Title: I'm a Believer
Date: September 2019
I was a little skeptical about this design since I have been using a Bach mouthpiece since 5th grade...57 years ago. Decided to try it and received my Wedge 66MD with a #25 throat at the end of August. It feels weird at first, and it takes a little getting used to. But I find my comfort level has improved considerably (especially for a long gig) and the ease in reaching my upper range has improved. My lower range is perhaps a bit more subdued than with my Bach 5C, but that's OK. I play in a community concert band and a brass quintet. I talked with Dr. Dave about which model to buy and he was very helpful in helping me reach my decision. I will most likely purchase a Wedge for my flugelhorn. -W. Kent

Title: Update on 66MDV review; 5/26/19
Date: September 2019
As stated in my 5/26/19 review of the 66MDV trumpet mouthpiece, I bought a second one for my new Getzen silver elite bugle. I bugle for the American Legion Honor Guard and Bugles Across America. Wow, the 66MDV opened up the sound of the bugle to a big big voice! A bugle already is loud compared to a trumpet, but the 66MDV added a fullness and boldness to the sound. Overall, the sound is fuller and deeper than the Schilke Symphony M5C or Bach 7C that I had been using. Range is every bit as good and the high register stays full and rich too. Fellow buglers have commented on how good the sound is, mostly commenting on how full and open the sound is. The high notes and crescendo’s sound strong too. I am as pleased with the 66MDV on the bugle as I am on the trumpet. Once you hear the sound of this mouthpiece, the price becomes insignificant. Totally happy. -John T.

L'estensione è rimasta uguale. Devo migliorarne la resistenza che è leggermente calata rispetto a quando usavo il mio solito bocchino.

I have just to improve the resistence, that is slightly worse in comparison to when I was using my old mouthpiece. -Michele M.

I've tried a number of shallow mouthpieces from other companies for lead work, but they always cut off the bottom range of the horn making wide ranging passages inconsistent.

It's the most versatile lead mouthpiece I've played on. -Paul M.

Title: 67RT - the best rotary trumpet mouthpiece I've ever played!!
Date: August 2019
I'm actually reviewing first the Wedge mouthpiece that I have spent the least amount of time on, but it doesn't matter at all. ALL of the Wedges that I've bought have been instant successes, with immediate positive results. I can confirm that every claim made on the Wedge website, about how these mouthpieces will improve performance, is true. I won't get into why it works, everything is exhaustively explained on the website. I guess I'm what Dr. Dave Harrison calls a "Wedge responder", or one that takes to the new equipment right away. Infact, I played a concert on a new 67MV four days after it arrived. So, the 67RT. What a beautiful sound, easy response, and efficiency on the rotary instrument. The cup depth is deep but not too deep, somewhere between a Breslmair G2 and G3, but closer to the G2. It's quite v-shaped, and it matches perfectly with the smaller bore of the typical german/austrian type of trumpet. Because of this deep cup/small bore combination, the upper range is not at all difficult to produce, and the sound is full and rich in all registers. It's a joy to play on! The Wedge was up against some very stiff competition from some other fine mouthpiece makers, but it's on the horn at every playing now. Everything else is in my mouthpiece cemetary! -Michael A.

Title: Great general use mouthpiece!
Date: August 2019
I'm pretty sure that the 67MD is going to be my general use mouthpiece. My first Wedge was a 67MV, which I purchased after a lengthy period of reading/studying everything I could about them and an extended, informative and guiding email conversation with Dr. Dave Harrison. No one else in this business dedicates that much time and energy with clients for such extended periods. The MD cup has a beautiful, warm but focused sound. As with all Wedges, it has a special singing quality that's so easy to produce. The combination of pressure transfer, the lateral dip, and the oval shaped cups seems to produce this. I also really like the MV for when a brighter sound is appropriate but a lead mouthpiece isn't necessary. As I mentioned in another review, I've found all claims made on the website to be true! I can also use the MD on my rotary trumpet, and the difference in sound with respect to the RT is much less than one might expect. I've found the Wedge rim design to be, in my opinion, the most important advance in brass instrument technology since the invention of valves two hundred years ago. It is truly revolutionary, and has made me a very happy brass player with newly found enthusiasm for music making! -Michael A.

I ordered the size mouthpiece in accordance with the chart on the website. I received the mouthpiece in a timely manner. It was nicely packaged and well made. It fit comfortably on my embouchure and I worked diligently with it for four consecutive days. It neither added nor took away from my endurance and made it more difficult to play in the lower register. With that being said, I have friends whose opinions I respect that have had better results using their Wedge Mouthpieces. It is a very well thought out concept and well worth trying. The return policy is more than reasonable. -John C.

I bought my mouthpiece because I struggled with stamina during gigs. I constantly had to wipe off my old mouthpiece and had trouble losing seal out the side of my mouth. First I noticed is my seal problem is fixed and my lips hold in the wedge design. Also, as an added benefit, I felt I always had to tip my head back to play to keep horn up which Dave suggested I try a 5 degree angle. My horn feels much more comfortable to stand and play now. Lastly, I recently tried my old mouthpiece on a challenging song, after my lips felt gassed I put the wedge design back in my horn and was able to play it easily through 2 more times!! I love it. Give it a try!! - Mark D.

This my first Wedge mpc experience, and everything touted on the website, I experienced. My endurance has increased, not only while practicing, but also during performance. My flexibility has increased as evidenced by running through numerous Arban and Hering etudes with more accuracy than ever before. The comfort of the unique Wedge rim allowed increased response, especially at soft volume levels. The sound I hear behind the bell seems to have more core, and my high end notes lock in more securely and feel extremely solid when playing them. I can’t recommend the Wedge mouthpiece enough! - William H.

This mouthpiece is exactly what I was looking for. I was lucky to find it in Dr. Dave’s “scratch and dent” section (although I’m hard-pressed to find a single scratch or dent), but I would have happily paid full price. I’ve been going back and forth between a more conventional mouthpiece and a Wedge 66M in plastic, but the plastic was too grippy for my tastes. Switching to the slightly deeper cup and the more comfortable silver plate made this mouthpiece feel like a perfect match right away, and it’s only feeling more comfortable by the minute. - Charles P.

Title: 67MD – Biggest innovation in mouthpieces in my lifetime!
Date: August 2018
I purchased a Wedge mouthpiece based on a roundup review of the top mp’s currently on the market and in hindsight that review did not fully highlight the virtues of the Wedge so I will endeavor to correct that now. I performed a “blind” A/B/C test with my 2 go-to mp’s (A Schilke 15 and Bach 1C) and the new Wedge 67MD, my go-to horn (YTR-8335) and a single piece of music. After playing all three mp’s randomly for 20 minutes, my listener preferred the Wedge each and every time. We both noticed that the Wedge had more tonal richness and robustness, that my interval accuracy was superior, and I fewer cracked notes on attack. And the ergonomic comfort of the oval cup was a major surprise! The only downside was that my range was off by about a full two tones but that appears to be due to the throat not being as large as my A & B mps so I’m waiting on a new Wedge with a throat that matches my air stream needs. I thank Dr. Dave and his company for accommodating my request for an exchange and him taking the time to answer my numerous questions. I highly recommend the Wedge and Harrison Mouthpieces Inc. for their outstanding products and customer service. -Ken H.

Experience was positive, but it had something to do with a 45-minute evaluation along with Dr. Dave, which helped me to clarify what mouthpiece I was looking for.

Using the shallow mouthpiece, my upper register was sound-wise significantly better than another brand shallow mouthpiece I played on for awhile.

Title: very stable
Date: January 2021
For me, the M variant is very stable and precise in tuning. Also, the stainles steel finish is very resistant, looks very beautiful and is suitable for those who want a more penetrating, directed sound, suitable for jazz bands. - Edi M.

Title: An open and fast backbore
Date: December 2020
I used it with the RT64 acrylic top and a Warburton 6MD top, all #27 throat, on my Jupiter XO C trumpet. It gives me open blowing experience and fast response. -Guanquan L.

Title: Quick conversion - and an old dog has learned a new trick!
Date: November 2020
I first tried a plastic (delrin) mouthpiece and was surprised to find that the change from a traditional cup to a Wedge mouthpiece was not so weird as I thought it might be. In fact it wasn't weird at all. I guess that within 3 days my embouchure normalised to the new shape and feel. So the next step was to get a two-piece version with a steel backbore and delrin cup. I find it's brighter and projects better. I'm a senior-aged musician (82). I've been a professional trumpeter for over 60 years and I'm still pretty active and working regularly. The extra support that my chops get from the Wedge has been a great help to sustaining my range and endurance as my ageing muscles tire and take longer to recover. -John S

Title: Great Mouthpiece!!
Date: October 2020
I ordered the Chuck Findley model earlier this year. I played it for a few weeks, wasn’t quite sold on it, tried it again a few weeks later and have been playing it ever since. Had really blown my chops out by the end of 2019, and I feel this mouthpiece really helped my recovery. -Steve H
 
One Piece Trumpet Backbore (Discontinued)

Title: Overbite modified mouthpiece
Date: August 2020
I bought the medium size backbore (size 27) with a modified trumpet top (64MV). With my previous used standard 3C mouthpiece I got too much pressure on my upper-lip due to my overbite, which impacted my endurance and general performance. Also my tone and flexibility are improved most probably because of the typical wedge shape with smaller rim-width at the sides, which enables you to change your lip tension more easily. Now I can play with less pressure on my upper lip and my endurance and range are improved significantly. It only took some time to get my lower lip trained and used to the new mouthpiece. -Marcel S

Title: Nice to have the ability to change sound and color for different groups and style.

The difference of feel and color between, the #2 and #3 backbore, is just what I needed to find the right sound for the variety of ensembles I perform in. Thanks!! -Rod S

Title: 665md with 2 piece trumpet backbore Bb length
Date: April 2020
Just over a week in and im enjoying the comfort and sound of my 665md wedge. Has a great sound particularly for orchestral playing. Range is about the same as my usual mpc but certainly not worse. Still working Endurance out but certainly think it could be an improvement. The only aspect that is a little less than I'd like is a small loss of brightness in articulation or a slightly less compact sound . Overall a great free blowing mouthpiece.

Title: Virus Blocked
Date: March 2020
Beginning the day following delivery of my new Wedge mouthpiece, ALL of the groups I play in were cancelled until further notice. I live in a condo and can only practice with a practice mute. While I am loving the feel of the mouthpiece I have yet to test it while playing in a section of a big band or any other ensemble. I very frustrated to say the least. I "think?" it may work for me but I won't know for sure until I get the opportunity to play it in a group or on a gig. I am hoping that this situation will resolve soon. If it does not I may be requesting an extension on your already generous return policy. As best that I can tell I may need to make a change or and addition to the order for a darker sound. I may keep what I have and order an extra (deeper) cup section to meet my needs on the classical playing that I do. I trust that you are all staying safe and healthy. As to weather or not I would recommend this product, the answer would be, I think everyone should try it and find out if it does what you need. I CAN'T WAIT TO TRY PLAYING IT IN ONE OF MY GROUPS! -Michael W

Title: Great Backbore!!!!!
Date: March 2020
I bought this so I could have the "C" length and the regular weight mid section to mix and match with what I already had (Heavy weight Bb length). Love it! When changing out the middle you really notice a difference in slotting and timbre. Very excited to have these different timbre's at my disposal. Changing out the Bb length for the C length on my C trumpet I notice an immediate difference in the response, sound quality and resistance. I tried a bunch of C trumpets (probably around 11) with the C length vs the Bb length and each one responded a little differently. Oddly enough some slotted better for me with the Bb length, while some expectedly slotted better with the C length. Definitely worth buying because every person is different and every horn is different. -Jeff L

Title: Wonderful mouthpiece.
Date: March 2020
Better than I had imagined. Better sound than a conventional mouthpiece. You will improve the resistance and sound of your trumpet. I will change all my mouthpieces. I am a professional trumpeter and I recommend all trumpeters to try these new mouthpieces. The workers will advise you on which mouthpiece is best for you or which wedge is equivalent to your mouthpiece. -Marcos G L

Title: Gave me Three Notes
Date: January 2020
WOW! I have been blown away. First was the excellent customer service. Dr. Dave took the time to make sure I had the right mouthpiece. Second, I was impressed with the island operation. Great production setting. And third (most importantly), this new mouthpiece has given me more than I had hoped for. On day number one I could easily reach 3 notes higher up the register. After two weeks I was comfortably playing in my historical upper ranges. Notes that used to be a challenge for me to reach now come with ease. I've also had quite a few compliments on my improved tone. I cannot recommend Dave's mouthpieces strongly enough. Every brass player needs this. -Bob L

Title: Great choice if you’re concerned about your gap

Dr Dave has made adjusting your gap simple without having your MP machined and fitted for sleeves. With different length lowers paired with your favorite backbone in either regular or heavyweight, all you ned to do is find the right length… -Charles C

Title: Brightest Sound Ever on the 65S!!
Date: October 2019
I’ve been playing trumpet for over 35 years and have experimented on many “lead” mouthpieces looking for a combination of comfort and endurance. My search ended when I purchased the Wedge 65S. I’ve always had a strong upper register. The first day running my range exercise on the 65S, I hit a double-D. My playing needs rarely go above high-G and it’s a joy to play Hugh-G’s on the 65S. The sound is blisteringly bright - which is exactly what I need. I opted for the 25-throat to allow more air. I’m equally happy with my 66MD and 67D tips. With all the tops on screw rims, the ML and S backbores make it simple to mix & match for a plethera of tone colors. Thanks Dr. Dave for following your dream and designing this terrific line of mouthpieces! p.s. I’m ordering a flugel cup for my darker tone needs! -Robert S.

Title: Untitled
Date: July 2019
I received the usual great amount of time and expert advise from Dr. Dave while custom fitting a ML C-length shank from the Wedge heavy-weight backbore to my Yamaha C rotary trumpet's extra wide mouthpiece receiver. The ML C-length shank was my go-to piece for my Yamaha D/Eb, and now it becomes THE piece for the C rotary. Because the ML C-length shank is more free blowing throughout the whole register than the Bb shank, it has become the orchestral choice for my Schagerl Bb rotary Ganch horn as well. - Keith W.
