12 DISTINCTIVE AND DESIRABLE SOUNDS ..... All with the same Patented constant-pitch design for instant Hot-swapping

Model A   Altissimo     Features a shallow cup used by top artists who must often play high. Its longer and more open backbore design helps high notes lock-in stronger and helps the low range speak more clearly than older 20th Century designs.  It is brilliant, yet never nasal or shrill …... players are amazed.  Compare to a 13A4A.  With a very shallow cup, the Model A+ helps players cut through with clarity from top to bottom.

Model B   Bright        This model produces a dynamic “commercial” quality for players who need both a moderately high range and a full sound. Its medium-shallow cup also allows you to “back off” a dynamic level and still blend in with most other players ….. perfect for Pops concerts and show-tunes.  The Model B is a “must have” as a back-up mouthpiece for concerts requiring much endurance.  Model B+ adds a bit more “zing” with a smaller cup and slightly longer shank. 

Model C   Classic      With a medium cup-depth and standard length, this model  produces a full-bodied sound often associated with performance of solo literature in Classical music.  It produces tonal colors of amazing depth and clarity. The Model C+ is popular as a flexible design that “bridges the gap” amongst a wide variety of musical styles.

Model D   Dark           Has a deep cup, like an old Bach Mt .Vernon A-cup  that produces a more Teutonic sound often associated with music of the Romantic Period. Customers say it produces a warmer sound similar to some rather costly avant-garde instruments.   With cornet, Model D  has a vibrant, yet lyrical quality for solo work.  With trumpet,  it provides greater sense of  "core sound"  than traditional C-depth cups.  It is also good for players who’s natural sound is “a bit too bright”.  At lower dynamic levels, it is helpful  in small rooms where an audience is close to the instrument.

Model E   Elegant      With a classic cup size for British Brass Bands, this extra-deep model also produces a thick “blues sound” for trumpet. It adds an extra dimension to various brass ensembles ........ terrific as an extra voice for brass quintets, quiet church music, or as a new timbre in trumpet ensembles. It's nice also for pianissimo entrances when a brighter sound fails to speak well at "ppp". Jazz trumpet players love it for laid-back solos.

Model F   FlugelTone   On a really short stem with a cup-size that looks huge, this a model you have to experience to believe!  It will make a trumpet or cornet sound almost like a flugelhorn, and for a lot less money. The short shank keeps pitch level on track, with intonation even better than some flugelhorns …....totally cool.  It helps "American-style" cornets blend in well with the most mellow sounding British cornets.

PLUS Series   Six more models are designed halfway between those described above. They are labeled A+, B+, C+, D+, E+, and  F+

Other horns   Designs for cornet, flugelhorn, or trumpets in other keys all use the same cup shapes, but with different lengths and backbores
