Mouthpieces and Embouchure Visualizer


We are proud to present a new series of mouthpieces, designed by David B. Thompson, Solo Horn of the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra, and meticulously crafted by Romera Brass, using state-of-the-art equipment for absolute precision and consistency.

Our designs are thoroughly versatile mouthpieces, based on very traditional contours and without extreme qualities. They feature a moderately slim rim which facilitates flexibility and control, and the inner contours are designed to produce a very crisp, clear articulation. Even just buzzing the mouthpiece without the horn, the player will notice the striking focus of sound and articulation afforded by these mouthpieces.

Three models are available, designated T1, T2, and T3.

The T2 is the mouthpiece which most players will prefer for their everyday double-horn playing, and it covers all registers with a full sound and great flexibility. The T3 is a bit larger, an appropriate choice for hornists who do a fair amount of low horn playing, but strive to maintain a very clear articulation in the low register. It is also a very fine mouthpiece for use with the F Wagner tuba. The T1 was conceived for use with descant horns, though some high horn players may find it fits their needs for use on the double horn. The T1 favours the upper register of the instrument and is well-matched to the high-F horn, but unlike many descant mouthpieces, it does not exacerbate the characteristic shrillness of the shorter horn.

All three models are sold in a two-piece configuration, so one rim may be used with multiple cups, and are available in either silver plate or gold plate. The rims and underparts are sold separately and so may be combined as desired.

The dimensions of the three models are as follows:

  T1 T2 T3
Cup depth:24.0mm25.2mm26.2mm
Bore:4.4mm4.8mm5.2mm
Rim inside diameter:16.8mm16.8mm16.8mm
Rim outside diameter:24.3mm24.3mm24.3mm

Also now available is our embouchure visualizer. This important pedagogical tool allows the hornist or the teacher to view the shape of the aperture and the functioning of the embouchure within the mouthpiece rim. Significantly, the rim on the visualizer is identical to the rim on the T-series mouthpieces, so the results seen are not influenced by a change of rim contour.
