Cut for Sleeves
This system allows the trumpet player to optimize their gap for sound, pitch, and playability.
Expand the throat diameter of most standard Trumpet, Cornet, Trombone, Tuba, and Flugelhorn mouthpieces!
We generally don't recommend anything below No. 20.
Most standard Bach trumpet mouthpieces have a No. 27 throat with a few exceptions:
- 5SV - No. 25
- 5V - No. 20
- 6BM - No. 26
Throats can only be enlarged (not reduced). The smaller the number, the larger the throat. i.e. a No. 24 throat is larger than a No. 27 throat.
Have your mouthpiece bent from 1-12 degrees to help compensate for an overbite or poor embouchure.
10° is usually the most common.
