  • CharacteristicsThe 96C is an excellent choice for concert band, jazz ensemble, and commercial lead. It is an excellent choice for a new players as an alternative to a Bach 12C or similar mouthpiece. ID = .960 inches (24.38 mm). Throat = .250 inches (6.35 mm) for strong players wanting less resistance.

 

  • The Gen 2 Wedge low brass mouthpieces have a second generation Wedge design that incorporates elements from our highly successful Gen 2 high brass rim. They have an accentuated oval rim shape that extends right down to the base of the cup.  This unique oval cup shape amplifies the effect of the Wedge rim, providing greater responsiveness and more core to the sound compared to a conventional round cup of similar depth and volume.

 

  • 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.

 

  • Delrin: 

      • 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 Delrin mouthpieces feel smaller than their metal counterparts with the same size designation.

      • Not as smooth as metal, so some players may feel slight chop irritation for the first day or two while they adjust.

      • 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.

      • Articulation less crisp with less point at the front of the note compared to brass.

      • Darker sound than brass.

      • Less core in the sound compared to brass.

      • Sounds darker than brass mouthpiece when used with a tone modifier.
