Mouthpieces ST-Series

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.
