Guide to Flugelhorn Tapers

Confused about tapers? We used to be, too! Here's the scoop on flugelhorn mouthpiece tapers. If you are using the wrong taper, you may be experiencing poor intonation and response!

  • LARGE Morse taper
    Commonly known as Standard Taper. Fits all Yamaha, Getzen, Callet, Stomvi, Benge, King, Blessing, Conn Vintage One, Weril, Holton, Schilke, older Kanstul 1525 flugelhorns, and most other “American” flugelhorns except Bach.
  • SMALL Morse taper
    The so-called Bach Taper. Fits Bach, Courtois, CarolBrass, LeBlanc (including Sandoval), B&S, Taylor, and some other European brands, plus Kanstul models 725, 1025, and newer 1525.
  • FRENCH (straight) taper
    Also known as Couesnon Taper. The French taper is used by original Couesnons, Flip Oakes "Wild Thing," Kanstul CCF 925, and original F. Besson flugelhorns.
  • Important Note: Using the wrong mouthpiece shank/taper WILL slightly affect some and greatly affect other instruments intonation as well as slotting and just the all around play-ability of the instrument. In short the wrong mouthpiece shank/taper can make a great horn a dog or you may find the dog Flugel you have only needed the correct mouthpiece to play great.

    Please note! Not all manufacturers make all three tapers, and some manufacturers treat certain tapers as special or custom orders.

    Flugelhorns can be confusing. This list has been put together to the best of our knowledge. If in doubt, ask us before you order! We'll do our best to find out for sure.

    Featured Product:

    Marcinkiewicz ProLine

    Designed for the player whose needs are not met elsewhere, these mouthpieces affords enhanced projection, even timbre from ppp to fff, and the same great intonation throughout all registers that Marcinkiewicz mouthpieces are famous for.

    ProLine Concert Hall mouthpieces have a unique exterior design that offers optimal nodal enhancement by placing integral vibration dampers in specific, calculated areas. The net result is a mouthpiece that gives an extremely stable center of pitch, allows unprecedented dynamic levels without distortion and provides a rich, dark symphonic sound without the additional mass of a conventional heavy wall mouthpiece.
