  • Characteristics - This mouthpiece is designed to meet the needs of a player who likes the characteristics of the Monette C3 mouthpiece. The throat on this model is a #23 or #21, which is the same as the non Prana Monette C3 and smaller than the Monette Prana. The #21 throat provides a more even response in all registers compared to the original Monette, and a comparable extreme upper register. The #23 throat offers a little more compression and provides a better upper register for most players. It has a slightly more compact sound, but still has more core than the original Monette. The MC3 is made from our heavy weight one piece blank and is slightly smaller than a Monette C2, Bach 1-1/2C or Wedge B1.5C, but has a similar depth and shape. It is slightly larger and deeper than the MC4.


  • Standard Brand Design - 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.


  • 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.


  • Guarantee and Return PolicyMost Wedge mouthpieces come with our 90 day money back guarantee. The mouthpiece can be returned for a full refund if it is not clearly superior to your regular mouthpiece, provided it is still in new condition (minor insertion marks are accepted). Exceptions are custom mouthpieces and discounted mouthpieces.
