65MV Trumpet Top

5 Star Review

Date: February 2021

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

67MV Trumpet Top

5 star review

Date: February 2021

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

67MDV Trumpet Top

5 star review

Date: February 2021

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

Chuck Findley 66MV Trumpet Top

5 star review 

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.

Chuck Findley 66MV Trumpet Top

5 star review 

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.

67MD Trumpet Top 

5 star review 

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

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

Date: November 2020

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.

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

5 star review

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

63S Trumpet Top 

5 star review

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. I had my teeth straightened a year ago and have been struggling to rebuild my embochure. The wedge made it easier to play with reduced pressure and forced me to play with tighter corner. 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.

5 star review

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

I am not one of the lucky players that has realized increase endurance or range however I consider the advantages outlined above to be more than enough reason to endorse this product. -Liahona B

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

Title: 98C Gen 2 Trombone Mouthpiece - Small Shank - .250 Throat - Silver-Plated Brass

Date: March 2020

Dr. Dave was very helpful over the phone with helping me select the appropriate Wedge model. He is easy to talk to and a good listener. He has a genuine interest in helping brass players improve their playing. If you're interested in trying a Wedge I definitely recommend calling Dr. Dave before you order,. As for the mouthpiece, it is definitely an improvement over the traditional round mouthpiece that I was playing before. Right away, I noticed a much more comfortable feel against the embouchure. After about 3 days, I began to experience improved flexibility, cleaner slotting of partials, better response and accuracy in the upper register, and increased endurance. Now, after playing the mouthpiece every day for about 2 1/2 weeks, all of the aforementioned benefits are still progressing, plus my articulations are more consistent and the tone is also improving. Dr. Dave said that after two or three weeks of playing the new mouthpiece, if I wasn't happy, to call him back, and he would address any issues I might be having, and recommend a different model Wedge to exchange for. But for now, I'll stay with his original selection, and continue to let my embouchure grow into it. -Jerry A

I recently received my new Wedge mouthpiece. This is my 3rd one. I have been playing a Wedge trumpet mouthpiece and Flugel mouthpiece for the past 3 years and have loved the range, flexibility, and endurance that I was experiencing. I just added a 66RT trumpet mouthpiece for lower range, jazz playing and very happy with this new purchase. I recently played it on my last 2 gigs and was thrilled with the response. I’m very appreciate of the time that Dr. Dave took to make the recommendation that I was inquiring about. Another happy trumpet player ! -Jim B

Title: Wonderful Mouthpiece !!!

Date: March 2020

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. Thank to Dave and his team for their passion and work ! -Roberto S

Title: Giuffredi C

Date: March 2020

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

Date: February 2020

Dear Dave, I certainly have more richness in my trumpet sound on Bb and C trumpets since I changed to the Wedge Chuck Findley 66M Trumpet Top. I find it also very comfortable on the chops. Initially I encountered some slight aching in one of my jaw joints, but this went away very quickly, once I had adapted to the Wedge, -Stephen A

It is extremely comfortable and I do find greater flexibility and a nice full core sound. Working with Dr. Dave was a great experience! -Brad C

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

64ES Trumpet Top - 27 - Silver 

3 star review

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.

64MV Trumpet Top and 2 Piece Backbore

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

I ordered a Wedge rim, hoping to help my endurance and range after 8 to 10 years off of playing. My set up just didn’t seem to work with this rim. After a day of frustration trying to make it work, I knew it wasn’t for me. I sent a message to return the rim and was instructed in how to return the rim. It is true what Wedge says. After receiving the rim back, they refunded 100% of my money. Can’t ask for a better return policy. The product was well made and the company very honest, but I was sorry it didn’t work for me. -Douglas S.

I bought the 64S top to try as a commercial piece and I absolutely love it. The response and feel make it ideal for the longer gigs I do (sometimes 4-5 hours of playing!). There was definitely an adjustment period of a few days, but now it feels infinitely better than my old (non-Wedge) mouthpiece. I like this piece so much that I even put a cornet backbore on it and use it in my brass band (I play soprano cornet). It fits so many situations! Total game changer for me! -Ryan M.

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

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.

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.

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: Good for a beginner

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.

Date: January 2021

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

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

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

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.

Title: 65 M 1pc. Mouthpiece

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

When I have received my mouthpiece I have tried it immediately: I have noticed straight away a clearer articulation and richer sound, also it was suddenly easier for me to play soft. 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.

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

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.

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: 63 ES Review

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

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

Title: 65 MV Delrin

Date: June 2020

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

Date: June 2020

I had been playing for a year or two on a 65M mouthpiece for piccolo trumpet. I was looking for a little bit better endurance, and after a conversation Dr. Dave recommended simply going down one rim size. Boy, was he right on the money. I am loving the results! The guy's advice is as good as his mouthpieces! -Jonathan K

I started working with this mouthpiece the moment it came in. Everyday has turned out to be a Great experience. The mouthpiece seems to get easier to play every time I use it. The intonation in the lower, mid and upper range are amazing. Also, I have noticed that the upper range is easier and my endurance at the upper range is stronger. I am a believer.

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

5 star review

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

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 must and want to thank Dr Dave for the patience, attention and time he wanted to devote to solving my problems. The use of Wedge mouthpiece (5 years) immediately improved my performance by 20% at least; later with the improvement of other parameters (backbore and angle) I improved the performance again, but the most striking result was the remarkable focusing of the emission and therefore of the quality of the sound.

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

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 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.

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.

Title: Works as Advertised

Date: October 2019

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.

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.

67MD One Piece Trumpet Mouthpiece 

5 star review

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 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 mouthpiece is exactly what I was looking for.

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.

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

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.

5 star review

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

Two Piece Trumpet Backbore - C Length - Regular Weight 

5 star review

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

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.

Trumpet Backbore C Length Shank 

5 star review

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.
