About the Wedge Mouthpiece

In 2007 Dr Dave Harrison, a physician and trumpet player for 40 years, started thinking about how the brass mouthpiece could be improved. He began with reports that a slight wedge shaped irregularity of the front teeth, natural or produced by dental bonding, provided certain advantages to the player. Dr Harrison applied these observations, in addition to his knowledge of human anatomy, physiology, and the blood supply of the face, to design a mouthpiece with a slightly different, more biomechanically efficient shape inspired by the dental "wedge". The term stuck, and the Wedge mouthpiece was born.

Players using a Wedge mouthpiece can expect:

  • A more even response in all registers
  • Greater comfort
  • Improved flexibility
  • More endurance
  • Enhanced range
  • Better articulation
  • Less swelling

Learning Good Habits
The Wedge design promotes a forward focused, closed aperture, corner controlled embouchure that is difficult to explain, but easy to feel and form with the Wedge. Players who have reported problems with leaking corners say that the Wedge makes them learn to use the corners properly, so leaking is reduced or eliminated.

Beginning players learn not to rely on pressure or "smiling" in order to ascend. They do not have to, and are not rewarded for trying. This prevents bad habit from forming early that could lead to later problems or injury.



"The single biggest problem I had was trying to find just how much pucker and how much "smile" in the embouchure for the best overall result.  The various descriptions such as holding the lips in a whistling position or a "kissing" position were so vague that they really didn't help with the best kind of facial position.  And of course if this isn't right then everything else- tone, range, technique (especially lip flexibilities)- don't feel right.  It's quite possible to use a conventional mouthpiece for years and still not find the optimum embouchure.  For me the Wedge solved everything in one go since you are forced to use a good embouchure in order to get a sound, and everything else follows almost automatically."

Ron Shapiro



Better Range
The more even response in all register improves range and removes temptation to try a shallow "cheater" mouthpiece that new players are often tempted to play.

Better Sound
Because the Wedge rim promotes a properly formed embouchure it promotes the emergence of a more open, resonant sound much sooner than a conventional rim. Many new players immediately  have a more mature sound the first time they try the Wedge, as if they had many months more experience on the horn.

Faster Improvement
The improved endurance and other immediate benefits provided by the Wedge promote more practicing, which can lead to faster development as a player and advancement in the section.

Plastic That Out-Performs Brass
Plastic mouthpiece options provide an economical way to try different mouthpieces as the player progresses. Plastic Wedges slot much better and have more core in the sound than other plastic mouthpieces or even brass alternatives.

Great for Marching Band
Plastic tops provide great comfort and security in marching and and in cold weather. The ability to match a plastic top with a brass backbore adds projection not usually found in plastic mouthpieces.



"Players that wish to improve their efficiency and endurance will benefit from a Wedge. Because the rim is not flat and the pressure on the lips is not even "pressing" is an ineffective technique for hitting notes in the upper register. The player learns to use air flow and lip tension to control range, pitch and sound without "cheating." The asymmetric curves of the cup and rim make the "sweet spot" a smaller, more exact spot that is also somehow easier to find, as well as more rewarding in sound and feel than a conventional mouthpiece."

Chris Coletti, Trumpet - Canadian Brass


Players With Braces

Player with Braces

Comfort
The Wedge is more comfortable than a conventional mouthpiece because the curved rim cups over the braces.

Because the Wedge promotes a lower pressure embouchure there is less discomfort and cutting from the braces. The need for wax, guards, and other measures is reduced or eliminated.

Better Sound
Players with braces immediately sound better on the Wedge.

More Fun and Faster Progress
We have heard from many players who were about to give up because of braces but who did not because of the Wedge. Better performance and comfort makes practicing more fun and more rewarding.

Plastic With Better Sound
Plastic Wedge mouthpieces are even more comfortable with braces, while the Wedge design and ability to add metal backbores means that sound is not compromised.

Increased Efficiency From a Larger, More Comfortable Mouthpiece
Many players find that a larger mouthpiece feels better with braces. The increased efficiency of the Wedge means players can enjoy the increased comfort of moving to a larger mouthpiece with the usual loss of range and endurance.


Advanced Amateurs

Personalized, Friendly, Expert Service
We treat every customer - beginner, amateur, or pro - with the same friendly, helpful service. Dr Dave is an amateur trumpet player himself, so he understands what the advanced amateur needs.

Consistent Rims
Players report that the ability to have the same Wedge rim for trumpet, cornet, flugel, and pic helps them to transition between horns.

Maximum Practice Results
No mouthpiece can replace practice. But most of us do not have 6 hours a day to wood-shed, so getting the most out our mouthpiece and our practice time is important. The increased efficiency of the Wedge means you get the most back from the time you spend on the horn.

Recovery from Temporary Layoffs
When practice time is limited and layoffs are longer that you would like, the Wedge makes it easier to get back on the horn comfortably because it helps to form and maintain an efficient embouchure.

Better Endurance
It is not a lot of fun to near end of the concert and realize that you are worried about having the chops for the last page. Most players report a significant increase in endurance so that fatigue and blowing airballs end of the concert is less of a concern.

Players tell us that improved endurance also lets them practice more when they did have time. They do not tire as much during a practice session and could spend more time on the horn, so progress was faster.
 
Better Range
Range and endurance are related. Because the Wedge rim is more efficient the average player gains several steps in range with a properly fitted Wedge without compromising the lower register. Better endurance and range are the two issues most commonly identified by amateur players as being important, and as being the most helped by the Wedge.

Faster Recovery
Most players report that when they do tire their recovery time is less with the Wedge. They can return to playing that day or the next day without feeling quite so beat up.

Less Swelling
The curved rim takes pressure off the sides of the embouchure, providing better blood into and away from the center of the embouchure. The result is less swelling.



"I am an older guy (62) who never played a note before I was 56. I went through beginning embouchure development at an older age. It has been almost 3 years since I bought a Stainless Steel Wedge.  I am still on it and liking it.  Before that I changed mouthpieces about every 8 months. The fit of my wedge continues to allow progress without feeling the need for a different piece."

Rudy Claassen


Come-back Players

Come-back Players

Getting Started Back on the Right Foot
Returning to play a brass instrument after a long lay off is an excellent time to start rebuilding a new, well formed embouchure. The Wedge design promotes a forward focused, closed aperture, corner controlled embouchure that is difficult to explain, but easy to feel and form with the Wedge.



"The single biggest problem I had was trying to find just how much pucker and how much "smile" in the embouchure for the best overall result.  The various descriptions such as holding the lips in a whistling position or a "kissing" position were so vague that they really didn't help with the best kind of facial position.  And of course if this isn't right then everything else- tone, range, technique (especially lip flexibilities)- don't feel right.  It's quite possible to use a conventional mouthpiece for years and still not find the optimum embouchure.  For me the Wedge solved everything in one go since you are forced to use a good embouchure in order to get a sound, and everything else follows almost automatically."

Ron Shapiro


Recovery from Temporary Layoffs
When practice time is limited and layoffs are longer that you would like, the Wedge makes it easier to get back on the horn comfortably because it helps to form and maintain an efficient embouchure.

Avoiding Old Habits
Returning players learn not to rely on pressure or "smiling" in order to ascend. They do not have to, and are not rewarded for trying. This prevents bad habits that may have lead to putting down the horn in the first place horn from re-emerging.

Personalized, Friendly, Expert Advice

Knowing what equipment to use when getting back into playing can be confusing. We offer personal advice to guide selections based on experience in fitting hundreds of players in similar circumstances. Dr Dave himself works directly with the customer to make sure we get it right.

Easy Mouthpiece Selection
We offer a full line of mouthpieces based on familiar models that you have played before, expect that the Wedge version works better. If your current mouthpiece is working well the Wedge version should be that much better.

Ability to Down-size
Many come-back players find that when they return to the instrument something has changed. Somehow they do not seem as strong as they were in the past. The increased efficiency and the ability to go to a smaller mouthpiece with the Wedge without sacrificing sound and flexibility is a great help to the come-back player.


At age seventy nine I approached the trumpet as a comeback player. That meant an opportunity to re- open all of the concepts regarding how to play, how much to practice, and what equipment to use.
 
The first ten minutes on the Wedge mouthpiece gave me a sensation that my embouchure could focus as it never had before. I adapted to each mouthpiece (4 Wedges and counting) and change easily and have also found that I could go back to the mouthpieces I had been using with no real adjustment. It all has been a most satisfying learning experience. So my "comeback" experience has been significantly enhanced by the Wedge mouthpieces.
 
A little better than a year has slipped by so 80 has come and that makes no difference because I'm enjoying every minute of it.
 
While Dave is a pleasure to deal with, there is another feature of the company that is an integral part and that is his wife Liz. Both of them are serious about what they do but they both know how to "wear the world lightly"in the process. So I look forward to all the encounters with Harrison Wedge mouthpieces.

"My needs are as varied as anyone could hope for or wish not to have, depending on your perspective. I go from fully amplified 12+ piece festival and Broadway musical bands to rock quintets to acoustic chamber trio to solo performances. That is very hard and extended blowing to very soft parts, with as varying degrees of expression as there are styles of music.

I find the different materials offered in the Wedge line (gold, brass and stainless steel) to be an aid in terms of response, projection and tone in different settings.
Meanwhile the attention to detail and custom requests were met so head on by Dr. Dave that I never have to think about whether my interchangeable cups are up to specs.

More than anything, Wedge pieces help significantly reduce recovery time, allowing for quicker resets, allowing much more attention to be paid to breath support, phrasing and expression."

Better Endurance

"Players like me, professionals without a ton of time to practice and who are strong players without being monster chops guys, typically have issues with endurance and sound projection. Range usually goes along with endurance, but it's different for everyone, I guess.  For me, playing a Latin gig the night before a brass quintet or a wedding ceremony means the chops have to remain supple and fresh at all hours of the day, even after a long, hard gig.

The first time I worked on the Wedge I bashed my chops completely because I was having so much fun playing to the top of my range all night on such a large mouthpiece. The next morning I woke up and had zero swelling, bruising, cuts, or stiffness. I have never experienced that on any other mouthpiece. The Wedge is an obvious choice for someone looking for better endurance on the gig and fresher feeling chops overall. Naturally, with these developments, other good things follow, too. Less chop tension, more relaxation, and easier sound are byproducts of the above."

Matt Hilgenberg - Trumpet - Freelance, Broadway, NYC


I do mostly lead and pit work.  Biggest problem I believe for my type of work would be burn-out. The non-stop high playing and endurance required to do it day after day.

I feel the Wedge makes you play "properly". Pressure, over-blowing, etc doesn't really work with the Wedge. Maybe it's because the corners aren't supported like they are on a conventional mouthpiece, so you can't "muscle" it.  I find myself using less pressure and when I get tired I don't feel I'm hurting myself like I could with other mouthpieces.

"Playing 2 hour concerts with very little rest can be taxing if you aren't playing as efficiently as possible. Recording sessions and rehearsals that start in the morning and end in the evening can also take it's toll on the chops. The wedge concept maximizes one's efficiency and comfort on the mouthpiece when we have these long days. I remember feeling beatup in the face during my pre wedge days when we had these long sessions and tours. Ever since finding the perfect wedge mouthpieces I still feel quite fresh, even after playing all day. Now I rarely feel fatigued and I love the comfort and grip of the rim."

Brandon Ridenour, Trumpet - Canadian Brass


"I think for the orchestral player the issues of ensemble intonation, balance, and personal endurance issues are the "biggies ". Because the Wedge allows for so much more freedom of embouchure function it's far easier to be more successful in these critical areas.

Howard Engstrom, - Principal Trumpet Emeritus
Calgary Philharmonic


I think many horn players struggle with their high range and endurance. In a brass quintet, these issues are exacerbated by our directional inadequacy and lots of loud playing. Horn parts in quintet are frequently all over the instrument, and do not lend themselves to "playing easy." Since switching to a Wedge rim, I've noticed it's much more conducive to playing easy, and when I'm able to do it I can play for much longer than before, I can play considerably higher than before, and I have much more grip when navigating the various registers of the instrument. It's helped my endurance, range and fluidity between registers. I love it, and have been telling my friends!

Eric Reed - French Horn, Canadian Brass


I'm part of a brass quintet. We do shows which are more than 2 hours long with very different music kinds, from opera to classics to swing. Not only the mind of the player must be flexible, but also the equipement, horns and mouthpiece(s). I'm using 4 different mouthpieces for every show, depending what kind of sound I'm searching for. Endurance is another big deal!

On the wedges I can focus my attention on Music, everything else is easyer. The playing confort is very high, flexibility in range and in tone-colour choosing are so easy!!! I've noticed even more endurance (same sound quality for a longer time period), less time to recover from fatigue, and more range. But that's only technical things. With less work directed to the tone production, I feel only involved in Music Making, sharing emotions and all that stuff for which audience is paying!!!

Marco Pierobon, Trumpet - Gomalan Brass


Experienced Veterans

Veteran Players

Rolling Back the Clock
We hear from veteran players with many years of experience that a change to the Wedge has given them a new lease on playing. The increased efficiency and more even response in all registers allows them to use a Wedge comparable to their old faithful mouthpiece with improved results.

Better Endurance
Endurance can become an issue as we age. The usual pattern is that changes may be seen as we enter the 50's. The Wedge improves endurance for many players to the point that this becomes much less of an issue.

Downsizing
We see many players who choose to move down in diameter or cup depth as they get into their 50's, 60's and 70's. This can sometimes result in a compromise in sound or flexibility if a smaller diameter is chosen.

The increased core in sound characteristic of the Wedge means that mouthpieces with a smaller cup volume sound bigger than comparable conventional mouthpieces, preserving the quality of the sound when down-sizing. The increased flexibility provided by the Wedge rim counteracts the loss of flexibility usually experienced by players moving to a smaller diameter. Finally, the Wedge design produces an unusually rich lower register from relatively shallow cup depths, so that a shallower, more efficient cup depth may be an option without compromising the lower register as much as with a conventional design.


"The Wedge encourages the use of much less pressure and allows you to use your air pressure to play as it should be. The chops hardly feel like they are moving if in fact they are when shifting registers. The rim is your cushion and is so comfortable and and is good for all sizes of cups. There is not a problem switching from a larger MP to a smaller or vise-versa - comfort is same and the chops just do what they do naturally. Doing what is natural - That is what its all about. The Wedge lets your lips form the proper embouchure naturally. The original Wedge is extremely consistent. I can be using two horns on a gig and have the same size mouthpiece in each horn and know that it will react the same. This is due I'm sure to the equipment used to make the Wedge. All the claims made regarding the Wedge are absolutely on the money."

Robert Spargo

 


Testimonials

"Endurance has been the biggest advantage in switching to the Wedge. Now, when I get to the end of a solo or quintet concert, I feel like I could play another one! The shape of the rim distributes the pressure in a way that allows any efficient player to play for hours on end.
Wedge mouthpieces provide excellent focus for both sound and pitch. This tonal focus makes finding those note "slots" much easier and aiming for those slots becomes much more reliable. In addition to these characteristics, the Wedge is the most comfortable feeling mouthpiece I have ever played. If all of these assets are something you're searching for, then try out a Wedge!"
Brandon Ridenour – Trumpet Soloist and Clinician - Wedge Endorsing Artist

"Switching to the Wedge rim was easy and quick - in the first month, I played numerous concerts and a two-week recording session (for the newest Canadian Brass release, 'Takes Flight') - and several things became instantly clear: I had magically stopped getting anywhere near as fatigued, I was playing more efficiently and easily throughout all registers, I had added at least a 3rd to my range, and most importantly, I had never been happier with how I sounded during playback."
Eric Reed - French horn - Canadian Brass - Wedge Endorsing Artist

"My journey with Dr. Dave Harrison and the Wedge system started out with a phone call to Canada. After explaining my needs and shortcomings to Dave, he advised me to NOT try his mouthpieces!!! My admission of probably greater-than-average mouthpiece pressure led him to this advice. I was disappointed, to say the least. Still, I was curious. And the plastic versions of his mouthpieces made it somewhat more affordable. I went ahead and ordered a plastic SJ Solo tuba mouthpiece to try on my F tuba. 
After five minutes with this mouthpiece, I knew that I had made the right guess... Because of the way the Wedge is made, I had to move my corners toward the mouthpiece - essentially relieving some of the aforementioned mouthpiece pressure. So, endurance was no longer an issue. Articulation, especially at the softer dynamics, was also greatly improved. Overall, I'm much more relaxed. I'm absolutely thrilled with my Wedge and look forward to further collaboration with Dave. What a great innovation!!" 
Scott Mendoker - Tuba, Philadelphia Brass - Wedge Endorsing Artist

"With Wedge mouthpieces I found the precision, elegance and comfort that I need! The innovative rim provides great freedom and comfort. You can fine tune your ideal sound through the precision of Wedge cups and throats. The professionalism and kindness of Dave makes mouthpiece selection easy. Thanks to this new technology I have developed a mouthpiece that permits a big, resonant and brilliant sound with a very efficient cup. A very big thanks to Dave for helping me to find what I need!"
Gianluca Scipioni - Trombone, Gomalan Brass - Wedge Endorsing Artist

"In one word, this mouthpiece is AMAZING! As soon as I got used to it, it revealed itself as a truly GREAT and IMPRESSIVE mouthpiece. The sound is so rich, centered, even, and the upper register is much easier. The Wedge rim gently re-aligned my lips for an incredibly crystal clear sound. Due to the particular rim shape that allows a better blood flow to the lips, I've noticed that I'm experiencing considerably less lip swelling. The Wedge is definitely the best change in equipment I've made in years."
Emanuele Casieri - Freelance Trumpet Player - Wedge Endrsing Artist

"The Wedge mouthpieces do not solve the trumpeter's technical problems. No mouthpiece can. But they do offer many advantages. My sound is now more intense, focused, with a "heavier" core. After very a short period of practice, now I feel that I played these mouthpieces for years. Flexibility is easier, while the "slots" are more defined. The sound is better because the attitude of the muscles and lips is better, so they gain endurance, extension and control over dynamics. Recovery from fatigue is much faster, even in the pauses between phrases."
Marco Pierobon - Trumpet - Gomalan Brass  - Wedge Endorsing Artist

"For me the Wedge was just what I was looking for. I saw a picture of the rim and stood up and said, “That’s what I have been looking for my whole life!” It came three years ago now and I have never looked back. I knew I was on the right track the first time I preformed with it and a violist from the orchestra said, “I don’t know what changed John, but I have never heard any hornist be able to play so smoothly…..”

It is my opinion that the wedge forces horn players to perform with I call a “zero tension” upper lip. The wedge requires one to use the corner and lower chin muscles to support the embouchure. This frees the upper lip to relax and vibrate more freely. Without fail I have seen time and again the wedge design increase; stamina, range (both high and low), sound quality, and flexibility. I won my job without the wedge but it is the wedge that lets me keep it. Before the wedge playing in the orchestra was work and standing in front (as a soloist) was a nightmare. Now sitting in the back is nothing and standing up front in a pure joy."
John Putnam - Principal Horn, Michigan Philharmonic - Wedge Endorsing Artist

"The new Wedge H2 mouthpiece allows me the response, centre and quality of sound I need for all my orchestral playing. The Wedge design allows me an ease of of transition over the entire horn, from low to high, loudest to softest that I have not found in another mouthpiece."
Sasha Johnson - Principal Tuba - National Ballet Orchestra of Canada, Wedge Endorsing Artist

"I can't recommend these highly enough. You really owe it to yourself to try these. You will be stunned at how well they play right off the bat!"
Nick Drozdoff - http://www.nickdrozdoff.com/ - Wedge Endorsing Artist

"Since I started playing my Custom Leonhart Wedge mouthpiece I have noticed an amazing improvement in strength, range, flexibility, tone, endurance, intonation and control. Basically, all the things trumpet players struggle with and strive for."

Dr Dave will be giving a lecture on Wednesday morning on the Medical Aspects of Brass Playing. The presentation will contain lots of important medical information that every brass player should know. Don't miss it.

"I have to admit that I was quite skeptical of this mouthpiece design at first. Being primarily a classical player, I'm not generally inclined toward equipment that goes "against the grain"--especially equipment that claims to make as many improvements as the Wedge Mouthpiece line. After a couple of years of curiously checking in on the website and being particularly frustrated with my mouthpiece setup, I decided to give Dave a call and see what the Wedge was all about. I'm very happy I did!" (excerpt - read full review)
