Mouthpieces SI-Series

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.
