This mouthpiece is designed with a rim size based on a Bach B1X and a Bach 5C cup modified to meet the rim. The combination provides plenty lots of room and the feel of a larger mouthpiece coupled with the very efficient and 5C cup. The sound is more brilliant than that of a Bach 1X and broader than a Bach 5C.
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.
This top is designed to be used with a Wedge, Warburton, or similar backbore, which can be purchased separately.
This mouthpiece has a size 25 throat.
This mouthpiece is silver plated.
