This mouthpiece is designed to meet the needs of a player who likes the characteristics of the Bach 1X mouthpiece. This is a large mouthpiece best suited for a mature player in an orchestral setting. Most players will find that the B1X will provide a more even response in all registers compared to the original.
This mouthpiece is fully gold plated.
All mouthpieces in the SB line are made by doing a digital scan of the conventional mouthpiece. The cup and alpha angle are slightly modified, and a Wedge rim is programmed to produce a mouthpiece that has a feel and performance similar to the original, but with Wedge advantages. This mouthpiece has our new Double Oval Cup (DOC). The diameter of the rim and cup in the vertical dimension is 10/1000 of an inch larger than it is from side to side. This means that the oval shape of the Wedge rim is continued down to the base of the cup where it joins the throat. The DOC design, found only in Wedge mouthpieces, provides the added efficiency of a smaller mouthpiece with the big sound, clear attacks, and flexibility of the larger mouthpiece.
