S-Series

TThe Salzburg Mouthpiece No. 5 is based on an original that was found in the Carolino Augusteum Museum in Salzburg. At the suggestion of Dr. Edward H. Tarr it was copied and through further collaboration a series was developed.

Their dark, rich, yet fine tonal colours make them perfect for 3-hole trumpets and 4-hole long trumpets.

Most of these mouthpieces are available with a flat or rounded rim, to enable newcomers, or players that frequently alternate between modern and baroque trumpet, to find one that suits them.

SI (=Salzburg/Immer)-Series

The Salzburg model served as a basis for the development of this series, realized in collaboration with Friedemann Immer and conforming to his ideals. These mouthpieces have a bright, brilliant tone and good flexibility. The OPT-mouthpieces are extra short. The dimensions of their bore and backbore have been calculated with a computer program for acoustical optimization.

Friedemann Immer notes:
Of the surviving baroque trumpet mouthpieces that I am aware of, one characteristic is always present: they possess, contrary to modern mouthpieces, a sharp edge at the point of entry to the throat from the cup. This sharp edge is, in my opinion, important in playing the baroque trumpet for at least three reasons:
1. It „creates“ the typical sound of the baroque trumpet.
2. The notes, particularly in the upper register, are more centred and easier to play although the throat is very open.
3. Changing the pitch of certain notes (i.e. playing without vent holes) becomes easier.
My experience has shown that such a mouthpiece improves playing in every register, from the extreme low (G and C, 2nd and 3rd partials) to the extreme high (e’’’ and further, 20th partial). A very broad dynamic range from pp to ff is also possible.

ST-Series

This series is based on an English mouthpiece from around 1800, probably by the maker Pace, from the collection of Dr. Edward H. Tarr (ex Joseph Wheeler, London). The main body of the original is of brass with a silver rim soldered to the top, as is often the case with historical mouthpieces from England. Tarr played the deep-cupped original from 1980 –1982 but changed to an Egger copy because of the difficulty that the former posed in playing the highest D trumpet parts. In order to make these parts easier, our copy has a shallower cup. The rim shape of the original is slightly rounded. It resembles a modern rim form and the inner diameter of the cup is similar to a Vincent Bach 1 ½ C.

The mouthpieces in the ST series produce a bright sound and are equally suitable for the 3- or 4-hole trumpet. They are especially recommended to players who use a similarly sized mouthpiece on their modern trumpet and are looking for a rim form and cup depth to assist with the changeover from valved to baroque trumpet.

MZ (=Madeuf/Zimmermann)-Series

These mouthpieces were developed at the suggestion of Jean-François Madeuf and in collaboration with him, as well as with Julian Zimmermann. They are available only with flat rim. The concept for this mouthpieces is based on the Bull-series and modelled after historical measurements. They are meant to be an addition to the Bull-series. All MZ-models feature a distinctive centering and guidance of the sound in the middle register. Their bright, brilliant sound production and flexibility are particularly suited to the playing of long natural trumpets without vent holes.

In A flat and B natural repectively

Instrument made from brass with one piston valve

These instruments were developed for the Zurich Opera House, according to Nikolaus Harnoncourt's tonal conception.

Verdi had natural trumpets in mind for the march theme in Aida. However to get a more practical size, Verdi decided to have trumpets built, whose length was half as long, whilst equipped with one piston valve. In order to achieve the sound quality of a natural trumpet, we based the dimensions on those of such instruments. The intonation was then optimized so that the a-flat and b-natural trumpets are well in tune with each other.

With the exception of the high-precision machined valve, our Aida Trumpets are made according to traditional hand crafting techniques.This produces the typical sound rich in harmonics and makes the instruments very willing to react to the interpretation of the musician.
