63ES (Extra Shallow)
ID .63 inches, 16 mm.

Similar to:
 
GR63S
Monette B9L
Schilke 6A4A
Yamaha 6A4A & 7A4

Description
 
The 63ES provides excellent brilliance, projection, and slotting in extreme upper register playing. The unique features of the Wedge rim mean that players using this small mouthpiece will not experience the reduced flexibility, nasty sounding low register, and tendency for the mouthpiece to shut off due to lip swelling that are often problems with conventional mouthpieces of this size.
 
The Schilke 6A4A and similar mouthpieces have a long history as very effective small diameter, extra shallow lead mouthpieces. The proven formula of the .63 inch rim and shallow cup is one of the factors that makes the 63ES one of our top ten selling models.

63LV (Lead V)
ID .63 inches, 16 mm.

Similar to:
 
Schilke 6A4A
Yamaha 6A4A & 7A4A

Description
 
The 63LV falls between the 63ES and 63S by having an extra shallow first cup and small, V shaped double cup. This provides most of the upper register support of the ES cup with a superior low register.
 
The low alpha angle helps to prevent bottoming out and the double cup design makes the mouthpiece feel more open. The 63ES is a great lead mouthpiece, but some players have also used the 63LV and the slightly larger 64LV and 65LV as a piccolo trumpet mouthpiece.
 
The double cup produces an unusually full sounding low register, which is great for some picc repertoire where you would like to be able to dig into the low end of the horn without sounding like you are strangling a small, anxious duck.

63S (Shallow)
ID .63 inches, 16 mm.

Similar to:
 
GR 63M & 63MS
Schilke 6A6A
Yamaha 7A4A (but with a deeper cup.)

Description
 

The 63S has the same inner diameter as the S6A4A and Wedge 63ES counterpart, but with a deeper cup.

The Schilke 6A4A is an excellent small mouthpiece for playing lead, but with limitations: some players will bottom out on the cup, it has a very bright sound, and the low register is very restricted.

The deeper cup of the 63S avoids the problems sometimes experienced with the 6A4A, while still providing great upper register support and projection.

64ES (Extra Shallow)
ID .64 inches, 16.3 mm.

Similar to:
 
GR 64S
Schilke 10A4A & 10A4
Yamaha 11A4
 

Description

The Wedge 64ES fills the same niche for a small diameter as the Schilke 10A4A and similar mouthpieces. The Schilke 10A4A is the big brother of the 6A4A, having the same extra shallow cup depth and a slightly larger ID to give a bit more room.

This extra shallow mouthpiece with a slightly larger ID than the 6A4A and 63ES, provides better flexibility and more room for swelling.

64LV (Lead V)
ID .64inches, 16.3 mm.

Similar to:
 
Schilke 10A4A (Slightly deeper due to double cup)

Description
 
The 64LV has the same ID as the 64ES and S10A4A. Like other LV cup mouthpieces, the 64LV provides excellent upper register support, an open blow, and an unusually big low register for such a small, shallow mouthpiece.
 
This is a great choice for playing lead and is popular as a piccolo trumpet mouthpiece when a balance between a brilliant upper register and full low end is desired.

64S (Shallow)
ID .64 inches, 16.3 mm.

Similar to:
 
GR 64M & 64MS
Schilke 10A4A (but with a slightly deeper cup)

Description
 
The 64S has the same ID as the 64ES, 64LV and S10A4A. The cup is deeper than the above mouthpieces, and similar to a Schilke 14A4A cup depth.
 
This is a great choice for playing lead and is popular as a piccolo trumpet mouthpiece when a balance between a brilliant upper register and full low end is desired.
 
The sound is darker than the 64ES or LV, with a better low end, but not quite as much support in the upper register.

64MV (Medium V)
ID .64 inches, 16.3 mm.

Similar to:
 
GR64MX
Schilke 10B4

Description
 
The 64MV is a very versatile mouthpiece with a small diameter and medium cup depth similar to a Bach 10.5C and Bach 3C, scaled down in diameter. It has a sound brighter than what would be usually desired for orchestral playing, but fits in well in most other playing situations.
 
This is also an excellent piccolo trumpet mouthpiece.

64MDV (Medium-Deep V)
ID .64 inches, 16.3 mm.

Similar to:
 
Schilke 11
Warburton 6MD & 6D

Description
 
The 64MDV provides a dark, compact sound. The smaller diameter provides improved endurance without producing a bright sound.
 
It is an excellent choice for someone wanting a dark sound from a relatively small mouthpiece.

65ES (Extra Shallow)
ID .65 inches, 16.5mm.

Similar to:
 
GR 65S
Monette MFII
Schilke 13A4A & 13A4
Yamaha 13A4A
Bobby Shew Lead
Kelly Screamer

Description
 
The 65ES resembles the Schilke 13A4A, Yamaha 13A4A, Bobby Shew Lead, and Kelly Screamer , all very similar, popular lead mouthpieces. Note that the cup of the Schilke 13A4A is significantly shallower than the 14A4A.
 
The Wedge ES cup is slighty deeper than the others, so players are less prone to bottoming out in the cup.
 
This is a very effective lead mouthpiece that will provide a strong upper register combined with a low end that lacks the nasal sound quality often produced by extra shallow cups.

65LV (Lead V)
ID .65 inches, 16.5mm.

Similar to:
 
Bobby Shew Lead
Kelly Screamer
S13A4A

Description
 
The 65LV is similar to the 65ES, but with a small double cup. It falls between the 65ES and 65S, and like other Wedge LV cups has an open blow that feels similar to a larger, #25 throat.
 
It is a good substitute for any of the mouthpieces in this class, especially when a better low range is desired.

65S (Shallow)
ID .65 inches, 16.5 mm.

Similar to:
 
GR 65S, 65.6M*, 65M & 65MS
Schilke 12A4A & 12A4
Warburton 5SV

Description
 
The 65S is an excellent lead mouthpiece for a player using a medium diameter and shallow cup. It is slightly deeper than the Schilke A cup or GR S cup and has a better low register. The S cup is very close to a GR MS cup.
 
Most players will find that the upper register is still better than conventional mouthpieces, even thought it has a slightly deeper cup.
 
The 65S also works well as a piccolo trumpet when players prefer a brighter sound with more projection.

65MV (Medium V)
ID .65 inches, 16.5 mm

Similar to:
 
Bach 10 -1/2C & 7D
GR 65MX
Schilke 12B & 13B
Warb 5MD
Yamaha 11B4 & 13B4

Description
 
The 65MV is one of our top 10 mouthpieces. It resembles the Bach 10-1/2C and similar mouthpieces, which are underappreciated options for young beginners, and are a much better choice than the much deeper 7C.
 
This group of mouthpieces has a cup depth similar to a Bach 3C with a smaller diameter better suited for young players.
 
Being the little brother of the Bach 3C it is a very versatile choice for all round playing. It also works very well for piccolo trumpet.

Warburton 5MD
Yamaha 11C4 & 13C4

Description
 
The 65MDV is similar to a Bach 10-1/2C, but with a deeper cup. You can also think of it as a scaled down Bach 5C.
 
It is and excellent choice for an orchestral mouthpiece when a slightly smaller diameter rim is desired. The cup depth of the 65MDV maintains a dark sound despite the medium sized diameter.

65RT (Rotary Trumpet)
ID .65 inches, 16.5 mm.

Similar to:
 
Bach 10-1/2A
GR 65LX
Schilke 11D4
Warburton 5D
Yamaha 13D4

Description
 
The 65RT is the little brother of the 66RT and 67RT (See descriptions below). It is designed for the player who wants a sound darker than the conventional "C" cup. The .65 inch ID is an efficient diameter, allowing players to use the deeper cup without sacrificing range and endurance.
 
This is a great choice for rotary trumpet or for a piston valve trumpet when an extra dark sound is preferred.
 
The 65RT also works extremely well for jazz players looking for a darker sound, while providing very smooth transitions from note to note.

66ES (Extra Shallow)
ID .66 inches, 16.8 mm.

Similar to:
 
Bach 3E
GR 66S
Warburton 4SV
Yamaha Allen Vizzutti

Description
 
The Wedge 66ES combines some of the characteristics of the Schilke 13A4A and 14A4A, with an ID similar to the larger 14A4A and a cup depth closer to, but not quite as shallow as the 13A4A. This produces a great lead mouthpiece for players who like the extra shallow cup of the 13A4A but who need a little more room in the rim.
 
Like all Wedge shallow mouthpieces, the 66ES has a much better sounding low register compared to similar conventional mouthpieces. When you play below the staff your neighbours will not think you are accosting waterfowl.
 
This is the largest diameter we offer in the extra shallow cup depth.

66LV (Lead V)
ID .66 inches, 16.8 mm.  

Similar to:
 
Bach 3D
Monette B4L
Schilke 14A4A
Warburton 4S
Yamaha Allen Vizzutti

Description
 
The 66LV shares common characteristics with all of the Wedge LV mouthpieces. The shallow upper cup and small second cup provide great upper register support with a remarkable, fat sound below the staff.
 
The upper cup has a low alpha angle to prevent bottoming out. Total cup volume is similar to the Wedge S cup.
 
LV cups feel very open. This is a great choice for lead trumpet and also for Piccolo trumpet for a brilliant upper register combined with a great low register as well.

Similar to:
 
Bach 3D
GR 66MS & 66S
Monette B4L
Schilke 14A4A
Warburton 4SV
Yamaha 14A4A

Description
 
The Wedge 66S is similar to the S14A4A, but with a slightly deeper cup. The 66S will out perform the S14A4A and similar models in both the upper and lower register. Slotting and projection are excellent.
 
This is a great lead mouthpiece in a medium diameter. It also works well for piccolo trumpet when a bright sound is desired.
 
This model with a 5 degree angle is Chuck Findley’s preferred mouthpiece for playing lead.

Chuck Findley 66MV (Medium V)
ID .66 inches, 16.8 mm.

Similar to:
 
Bach 3C
GR 66MX
Monette B4 & B4S
Schilke 14B
Warburton 4MD
Yamaha 14B4
Bobby Shew Jazz

Description
 
The Chuck Findley 66MV plays like a really great 3C, but with a very slightly smaller diameter.
 
The 66MV is the most popular mouthpiece we sell, simply because it works well for many players in many playing situations. This size is the "multitool" of mouthpieces as it is best suited for playing in concert band, wind ensemble, brass quintet, worship groups, jazz, pit and pops settings, and almost anywhere else.
 
Although not a typical choice for an orchestral setting or for playing lead, the 66MV can also be made to work for that type of playing. Keep in mind that this particular "C" cup is not quite as deep as the Bach 1-1/2C, 5C, or 7C cup. It is the most shallow of all Bach C cups.

66MDV (Medium-Deep V)
ID .66 inches, 16.8 mm.

Similar to:
 
Bach 5C & 7C
GR 66L & 66LX
Schilke 14 & 14C2
Warburton 4MD & 4D
Yamaha 14C4

Description
 
The 66MDV is the Wedge version of the Bach 5C, Schilke 14, and similar mouthpieces. These are a slightly smaller alternative to the typical "orchestral" Bach 1-1/2C, .67 inch ID sizes.
 
The 66MDV is an excellent choice for an advanced amatuer player or professional who wants the classic "orchestral" sound, but who has challenges with range and endurance.
 
It's also and excellent choice for advancing students who are not yet ready for the 67MDV. The The more efficient .66 inch rim gives most players better endurance than the .67 inch rim, while keeping a similar, dark, if slightly more compact sound.
 
Note: The Warburton 4MD cup depth is actually between the Wedge MDV and MV.

ID .665 inches, 16.9 mm

Similar to:
 
Bach 3C
GR66MX
Monette B3, B4S
Schilke 14B
Yamaha 14B

Description
 
The 665MV, along with the 66MV, is the Wedge most similar to the Bach 3C. It has a cup depth that is slightly shallower than the Bach 1.5C and Bach 5C, and B7C. It therefore has a slightly brighter sound, and provides more support in the upper register than the 1.5C/5C and Wedge 665MDV.
 
The 665MV is a great all round mouthpiece for a wide variety of applications. The sound is a bit bright for an orchestral setting, depending on the player's natural sound and sound preferences. It is very well suited to situations where a bit more efficiency and projection is desired, such as concert band, brass quintet, marching, and jazz band.

Bach 1.5C, 2C, 5C & 7C
Monette B3
Schilke 15
Warb 4DM & 4D
Yamaha 16C4

Description
 
There is a gap in the Bach sizing between the 1.5C and 5C. The Bach 3C has an intermediate rim diameter, but a shallower cup, and the Bach 3B has a more V shaped cup.
 
The 665MDV is intended to fill that gap with an ID similar to a Bach 3C and a cup depth similar to a Bach 1.5C and 5C.
 
The 665MDV is a great choice for a player wanting a sound similar to a Bach 1.5C, but with a slightly smaller, more efficient inner diameter.

67MV (Medium V)
ID .67 inches, 17 mm

Similar to:
 
GR 67MX
Monette B2
Schilke 15B & 16B4
Warburton 3MD


Description
 
The 67MV fills the need for a large diameter mouthpiece with a medium cup depth.
 
The MV cup evolved from our M cup, and has a modified V shape at the bottom of cup leading into throat. This produces a slightly darker sound without sacrificing range.
 
This is the shallowest stock cup we make in the .67 inch diameter. A 67S, a .67 rim with a shallow cup, is available by special order.

67MDV (Medium-Deep V)
ID .67 inches, 17 mm

Similar to:
 
Bach 1-1/2C & 1-1/4C
GR 67L & 67LX
Monette B2
Schilke 15, 16, 16C4 & 17
Yamaha 16C4
Warburton 3MD & 3D

Description
 
The Bach 1-1/2C, Schilke 15-17 series, Yamaha 16C4, and similar mouthpieces, have historically set the standard for orchestral mouthpieces.
 
The Wedge 67MDV is designed to fill the same need for a dark, orchestral sound, but with all of the advantages of the Wedge design.
 
Most players will be fine with the usual 27 throat. Strong players with good breath support will often prefer the bigger, broader sound and reduced resistance of the 25 throat.

67RT (Rotary Trumpet)
ID .67 inches, 17 mm.

Similar to:
 
Bach 1-1/2B
Warburton 3D
Yamaha 16D

Description
 
The Wedge 67RT is modelled after a German rotary trumpet mouthpiece design.
 
Although the Bach 1-1/2C and similar mouthpieces are the typical choice for a relatively dark "legit " or jazz sound, some players prefer the extra darkness of a deeper cup. The Bach 1-1/2B, Schilke 17D4, and Yamaha 16D are typical choices for that darker sound. The 67RT meets the same need.
 
The 67RT is very efficient despite the modified V shape the cup. It produces a well-balanced, rich sound in rotary or piston valve trumpets, with ample brilliance at loud dynamics.

68MDV (Medium-Deep V)
ID .68 inches, 17.3 mm.

Similar to:
 
Bach 1C
Monette B15
Schilke 18
Warburton 2MD
Yamaha 17C4

Description
 
The 68MDV is for players who prefer a larger mouthpiece than the typical Bach 1-1/2C, choosing instead a Bach 1C, Schilke 18, 20, etc.
 
Note: Although the 68MDV fills the need for a larger than average "orchestral" mouthpiece, many players using a mouthpiece this large can get better range and endurance with a better balance between the upper and lower register by choosing a 67MDV, which has the same cup depth but a slightly smaller diameter. This is especially true when switching to the Wedge design, which produces a bigger sound and more flexibility from a smaller mouthpiece.

68RT (Rotary Trumpet)

Description
 
The Wedge 68RT is for players who want the same deep cup as our 67RT (see above), but with a larger diameter.
 
Note: As with the 68MDV, many players using a mouthpiece as large as the 68RT can get better range and endurance with a better balance between the upper and lower register by choosing a 67RT, which has the same cup depth and a slightly smaller diameter. This is especially true when switching to the Wedge design, which provides a bigger sound and more flexibility from a smaller mouthpiece.
