Each Sculptured Band is meticulously designed by David Baum and cast in 92.5% pure silver. Sculptured Bands can be custom gold plated with 24K gold in a variety of ways. Have something specific in mind? Whether you want your band completely gold plated or a combination of gold and silver, just let us know and we'll work to get your Sculptured Band plated just as you imagined.
Sculptured Bands are permanently affixed to the mouthpiece of your choosing. Although if something were to ever happen to your mouthpiece rendering it unplayable, our machinist can remove the band and fasten it to another mouthpiece.
We have a variety of gorgeous, pre-sculpted designs available now for most standard trumpet and cornet mouthpieces.
Have your own idea for a Sculptured Band? David Baum is able to sculpt almost anything imaginable. Give us your idea and he'll create a custom Sculptured Band to make your mouthpiece truly yours.
For pre-sculpted designs on in-stock mouthpieces please allow 2-3 weeks for us to create your mouthpiece. Custom designs will take approximately 5-6 weeks to produce.
Custom orders require a $50 deposit which will be applied toward the purchase price. A final price for custom designs will be given to you after meeting with David Baum to discuss your design.
Do you have a favorite mouthpiece?
Sculptured Bands are available for new, as well as some gently used mouthpieces. Send us some photographs of your gently used mouthpiece and we'll let you know if we can add a David Baum Sculptured Band to it.
