From boyhood beginnings in amateur bands and orchestras, Denis Wick became a principal player in the London Symphony Orchestra at the age of 25. He worked with some of the world's greatest musicians and conductors there for 31 years until his retirement.
Denis Wick revolutionized the world of cornet playing, and has helped bring about a real difference between cornet and trumpet sounds. Wick cornet mouthpieces are truely intended for cornet, not trumpet mouthpieces with a cornet shank! The richness, sweetness and flexibility of modern cornet playing so much a characteristic of the best brass band are attributable to the careful research which Denis Wick has accomplished in cornet mouthpiece design.
Denis Wick cornet mouthpieces are available in 4 rim/cup diameters and 2 cup depths, some available with a wide rim (designated by 'W'). Four Roger Webster models are also offered as well as the shallower 'S' Eb cornet model.
