  • Characteristics - The 825XD has an extra deep cup similar to the Laskey E, Denis Wick Paxman, or Farcas MDC cup, but incorporates the unique oval shape of the Wedge DOC cup and the patented Wedge rim.
  • Specifications - ID 18.25mm (.719 inches), OD 26.24 mm (1.033 inches), Bore #12.
  • Material - These mouthpieces are made from Acrylic plastic. These are some of its characteristics:

      • 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.

The DOC (Double Oval Cup) design carries the oval shape of the Wedge rim into the bottom of the cup, producing more core in the sound with great stability and clean attacks.
