  • Characteristics - The Gabriel trombone mouthpiece was designed for Wedge artist Gabriel Hasselbach as a mouthpiece intended for a trumpet player who wants a small mouthpiece for doubling in trombone. It is slightly smaller and shallower than the Schilke or Wedge S40B. The Gabriel has the usual Wedge rim, which is not as wide as the extra wide S40B, an extremely small inner rim diameter or .880 inches and and shallow "B" cup. The Wedge version has a .230 throat or .250 throat. The .230 throat more closely resembles the original and is recommended. The .250 has a more open blow for those who find the .230 throat stuffy.

 

  • 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.
