- Characteristics - The Wedge S59 is based on a scan of a Schilke 59. The Wedge version feels very similar to the original Schilke in terms of the inner diameter and cup depth, but it has a wider, more comfortable rim and a bigger lower register. It has a more even response in all registers. This mouthpiece is made with a LS4 shank and a .298 inch throat.
- Note: Some bass trombones, for example some vintage King models, have an extra deep receiver. If your mouthpiece inserts more than 1.25 inches (31 mm) into your leadpipe be sure to select the BT Deep Receiver option when ordering bass trombone mouthpieces.
- 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.
