Material - Euphonium mouthpieces can be made with either Delrin or Acrylic plastic. Here is a comparison of their characteristics:

  • 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.
  • Acrylic:
  • Feels softer than brass but less soft and Delrin on the chops.
  • Less slippery than metal but more slippery than Delrin.
  • Grip intermediate between Delrin and silver.
  • Feel slightly smaller than the metal counterparts.
  • Smoother than Delrin, very similar to silver.
  • Comfortable to play in cold weather.
  • Responsive to soft articulation.
  • Articulation is clearer than Delrin, very similar to metal.
  • Sound is slightly darker than brass and brighter than Delrin.
  • More core in the sound than Delrin, but not as much core as metal.

 

Wedge euphonium mouthpieces were developed at the request of euphonium players who wanted a Wedge mouthpiece made specifically for their instrument.

Rim:

  • Second generation Wedge rim design that incorporates a more pronounced oval shape compared to our regular Wedge rim
  • Sizes range from an ID of 1.01 inches (25.65 mm) to 1.06 inches (26.92 mm)
  • Easily easily correlated with sizes of Denis Wick SM Ultra mouthpieces

Throat: 

  • Larger throat for more open blow and bigger sound

Cup:

  • Deep bowl shaped contour, similar to other popular euphonium mouthpieces
  • Unique oval cup shape, larger from top to bottom than side to side, extending right down to the throat
  • Oval cup shape amplifies the effect of the Wedge rim, providing greater responsiveness in all registers and a bigger, fatter sound compared to a conventional round cup of similar depth and volume

The Wedge E Series Euphonium Line - The Wedge E Series Euphonium line was developed at the request of euphonium players who wanted a Wedge mouthpiece made specifically for their instrument. The E Series mouthpieces have a second generation Wedge rim design that incorporates elements from our highly successful Gen 2 high brass rim. They have an accentuated oval 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 cup of similar depth and volume. The cup has a deep bowl shaped contour, similar to other popular euphonium mouthpieces, with the addition of the Wedge rim and oval shape.

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.
