Mouthpieces BL-Series

Written by Ralf Masurat on . Posted in Uncategorised

BL (=Bull)-Series

This series of mouthpieces is based on an original found on a trumpet by William Bull (fl. 1671-1712), located in the London Museum. The original was measured by Eric Halfpenny, and his measurements were published in "The Galpin Society Journal XX (March, 1967)" as mouthpiece "G: William Bull Nr. 2, brass."

After some recent discoveries, Jean-François Madeuf has suggested that although this mouthpiece is probably from the same time as the trumpet (c. 1700), it may have been made by a different maker. Because historical mouthpieces are seldom signed and the authorship therefore unclear, we have followed the convention of naming the mouthpiece after the instrument with which it is currently paired.

The following models were created in close cooperation with Jean-François Madeuf. Their bright, brilliant sound production and flexibility are particularly suited to the playing of long natural trumpets without vent holes. Despite having a broad cup diameter, they are designed for use in the upper register.

Mouthpieces S-Series

Written by Ralf Masurat on . Posted in Uncategorised

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.

Mouthpieces SI-Series

Written by Ralf Masurat on . Posted in Uncategorised

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.

Mouthpieces ST-Series

Written by Ralf Masurat on . Posted in Uncategorised

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.
