The Original Wedge Two Part Mouthpiece Line

Better Sound, Range, Endurance, Flexibility and Comfort - Guaranteed.

The Wedge mouthpiece has been described by players using it as the most significant innovation in brass design in decades. It was developed by a medical doctor combining an understanding of human anatomy and physiology with 40 years of experience as a trumpet player. The result is a unique oval, curved rim shape that is far more comfortable and efficient than a traditional round and flat rim.

Players using a Wedge mouthpiece can expect:

    • Better range
    • More endurance
    • A fuller sound and more even response in all registers
    • Improved flexibility
    • Better articulation
    • Greater comfort
    • Less swelling
    • Easy adaptation with no need for a change in your embouchure

We stand behind these claims with:

    • Free shipping to most locations 
    • 90 days to try the mouthpiece
    • Full refund or exchange with no restocking fees

Original Wedge mouthpiece tops come in a full range of rim diameters and cup depths to allow you to fine tune your mouthpiece selection. Choose from this line if you want to change something about your mouthpiece offered in the Standard Brand line or if your desired mouthpiece is not similar to anything from the Standard Brand line.

Backbores are the other half of the part system.
Trumpet backbores can be one piece or two piece. One piece backbores come in sizes S, M, and ML and a a great option when players do not want the option of gap adjustment or the potential to use a short shank for C trumpet.
Two piece backbores have an upper component and a matching shank. Shanks come in different optional lengths for gap adjustment.Wedge trumpet backbores can be regular weight or heavy weight. Trumpet backbores come in silver or gold plated brass or stainless steel with either a standard #27 or larger #25 throat.
Cornet backbores are one piece and can be used with Wedge tops for cornet or piccolo trumpet. They are available in silver or gold plated brass.
Wedge backbores have the same threads as Warburton, Kanstul, and Picket Brass backbores.

"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. Since playing on a Wedge, I have already noticed an improvement in my overall intonation when playing with others. In addition to these characteristics, the Wedge is the most comfortable feeling mouthpiece I have ever played. The contour of the rim feels like it's actually forming to your lips! If all of these assets are something you're searching for, then try out a Wedge!"
