  • Characteristics - The 4G is similar in size and playing characteristics to a Bach 4G. It is a popular orchestral mouthpiece for those with a strong embouchure who want a big sound. The 4G is available with a small shank or large shank with a .275 throat.

 

  • Acrylic -

      • Feels softer on the chops because it has more give than metal. This is a great advantage for players with braces.

      • Not as slippery as silver, giving more grip.

      • Added grip makes Acrylic mouthpieces feel slightly smaller than their metal counterparts with the same size designation.

      • More comfortable to play in cold weather because they feel warm on the chops.

      • Plastic mouthpieces are more responsive than brass, making soft entries more secure.

      • Sound is slightly darker than brass

      • Less core in the sound compared to brass.


  • Acclimatization - Acclimatization time varies, but most players find they have fully adjusted to the new rim shape within a few days. Most players are able to alternate between a Wedge rim and conventional rim, although the vast majority of players will convert all of their mouthpieces to the Wedge design because of its obvious advantages once they have adapted. We do offer discounts to players who need to purchase a number of Wedge mouthpieces for various instruments.
